Last night my Johnanthon cleaned and shined his boots for his Uncles funeral, he's going to be an honoree pall barrier, they will all wear black wranglers, long sleeved white shirt, and western sport jacket, I will iron and starch my babies cloths. Been awake sense 4:00, laid in bed and talked to my brother, my dad and God. The Dr. gave me something to sleep but I didn't want to take it, scared of getting dependent on it. My brothers funeral is going to Monday, have to wait for the cornier to finish his part, the reason for the cornier is because he passed away in the field, even though my niece and nephew told the ER. doctor he had heart problems, the law is the law, my niece and nephew both agreed to let them do organ transplant, to take what ever they could take, so my brother will be alive some where in this world, maybe his eyes are helping another parent see their child for the first time, maybe is ears are letting someone hear Gods word and song of praise for the first time, maybe his kidneys are helping out another brother to stay off of the dialysis machine so he could love his sister, his bone marrow is probably going to help a child stay alive!! Talking to my 3 favorite men this morning has so far helped me feel some what better. I'm so Thankful to the Lord for not allowing my brother to suffer, just took a nap and he's never woke up, golly what a way to go, Larry's sister told me something that has stuck with me, she said " Annette, I know your hurting, but God wanted me to tell you this, your brother has full filled his purpose in this life, he's done everything I wanted and needed him to do, so I've taken him now" my brother always believed and loved God, he's been going to church with our cousin and his wife and a few weeks back he gave his heart to God again, he hadn't been able to attend church for a little bit cause of being the busy season for cotton picking, and the pickers have been running 24/7 but this last Sunday he went, and I know with all my heart and soul God allowed him to be able to attend THAT church service, cause THAT word for THAT day was meant for him to hear. I miss my brother so much, but I will only miss him for a little bit, this separation from my world and heaven is just a short separation period, God needed a good and knowledgeable farmer in heaven to assist in his garden up there.
I just found this out, Did you the green ribbon symbolizes organ and tissue transplant? and my brothers favorite color was green, I thought he liked green for the newly growing cotton plant, or the $$ it put in his bank account....giggle
