God was there today.........


I just came home from Amanda's Ex boyfriends brother funeral, with full military honors, he was in the Air Force, those are such lovely farewell's. His mother, who I worried allot for did real good, but towards the end she got up and walked out, the poor soul suffers from bipolar and skitzafrinick (I know wrong spelling) she saw me and told me I looked like an angel and was very glad I could make her to her sons funeral, I told her that death is a beautiful thing and that this separation from him was only temporarily! As I sat in that chapel I got to thinking about all the love that has touched my heart and how lucky am I that Jesus loves me. I told Amanda today that when I leave this world, I want my funeral to be different, I want people to say "That Annette, boy she sure did do it her way" I want all women to carry my final bed, with the exception of Johnanthon, I don't want people to wear cloths that aren't comfortable for them, if they want to come in their slippers then come, if they want to wear shorts and t~shirts, then wear them, I want hand clapping songs and I want everyone to sing, sing loud, loud enough for me and Jesus to enjoy" "MOM" she said in stern voice. I cant imagine as a mother having to bury one of my children, I know what it did to my Dad and step mother when my little brother Johnny was killed at the age of 12, and how still to this day effects them. I kept asking God to make his presence known today and he did in a small kind of way, there was feeling of peace in that chapel!

I can't imagine outliving one of my children...I'm certain I couldn't do it. I went to a visitation recently of yet another homeless friend who passed away and for the life of me I cannot figure out why it is in our culture to have open caskets...not me!


I hope the family of your friend is finding peace and I agree, military funerals are very honorable.

Love to you this sweet September day ~
