Message of December 3, 2014


Hi Angels,

    Thanksgiving was very nice, I received a lot of phone calls from friends just checking up on me and wishing me well. I really appreciate all those calls and look forward to them so very much. I went out to the cemetery and took flowers because Edwarda and my mom just loved them. I remember when I would bring Edwarda colorful ones she would just light up with a big smile. It made me feel so good. My mom had been coming to me alot just to reassure me that everything will work out. We are still struggling and when I start worrying about all the bills and just can't sleep I hear my mom's voice just telling me to stay strong and to believe and then I feel a big load has been lifted off my shoulders.

          My mom could always make me feel that everything would be ok. My mom is and always will be the best to me. I just miss her and my sister so very much. Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to hearing from everyone over the Christmas holidays.

I keep each and everyone of you in my prayers Please keep us in yours.

                                                  God bless
                                                  Mary keep

                                                  Colleen

Don't forget the prayer group is the 15th of each month at 8:00 p.m.

"Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?"

"Of course not, I would never leave you, Darling,

I promise.

And a promise is a promise!"

 

      Edwarda O'Bara was a vivacious sixteen-year-old and a mild diabetic. During
the early morning hours of January 3rd, 1970, Edwarda woke up shaking and in great pain
because the oral form of insulin she had been taking wasn't reaching her blood
stream. Edwarda was rushed to the hospital emergency room and as she lay in her
hospital bed sliding in and out of consciousness she turned to her mother Kaye and
said, "Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?" Kaye looked at her frightened
daughter and said, "Of course not, I would never leave you, darling, I promise. And a
promise is a promise!" Those were the last words that were exchanged before Edwarda
quietly slipped into a diabetic coma.

    For the past 39 years, Edwarda has lived her life in a coma, and Kaye has lived her
promise of never leaving her daughter's side.Kaye has kept a vigil at Edwarda's bedside,
caring for her every two hours, twenty-four hours a day, for the past 38 years! She has
maintained this grueling pace and during these 38 years has not slept for more than 90
minutes at a time. As a devoted mother, Kaye chose not to institutionalize Edwarda, but
rather to care for her at home and assume the tremendous financial burden that accompanies
personally caring for a comatose child. Unfortunately, Kaye passed away March 7th 2008 and
now her younger daughter Colleen had cared for Edwarda every day since she
passed away on Nov 21st 2012. 
                                                 HOPE NEVER DIES

                                                                      Miracles

The strength, power, and tenacity of Kaye O'Bara's incomparable love has attracted modern
day miracles, including the appearance of the spiritual apparition of the Blessed Mother,
who appears frequently before Kaye in her home.

The message from the Blessed Mother to Kaye is not to despair, that Edwarda has chosen
this state as her means of expressing her purpose on earth. Edwarda's mission is to create
awareness and to bring comfort, hope, and compassion to those in need. People around the
world who have experienced pain and suffering have reported that Edwarda has appeared to
them, often taking their pain and leaving them with a spiritual sense of comfort and peace.

                                                         How You Can Make A Difference

Dr. Wayne Dyer has chosen to help the O'Bara's by writing of their story in a book titled,
"A Promise Is A Promise". This book tells of Edwarda's life, the numerous challenges the
O'Bara's have faced, as well as the miracles that have occurred, including the appearances
of the Blessed Mother.

A positive change in the world begins with each of us individually, and by helping others you are actually helping yourself!
