In November 1971, I enteredrepparttar U.S. Army and stayed for many years. My little Farmall sat underrepparttar 144728 shelter and collected dust. When I would come home on leave, I would crank it up, and ride around on it. I had to go overseas, and I knew my little tractor would just fade away with nobody to use it. I told Mama to sell it for whatever she could get out of it and to userepparttar 144729 money for something she wanted. She sold it to her first cousin, Alvin Gill, for $500.

In 2001 after I had found that $700 canceled check, I started having thoughts about tracking down that Farmall so I could maybe buy it and bring it back home. I called Alvin and asked aboutrepparttar 144730 tractor. Unfortunately, he had sold it to someone and could not remember to who. I hope that somewhere out there, my Farmall Super A is still purring away bringing joy to its' owner. Mama didn't have much money when she bought me that tractor so that $700 was a small fortune to her. She knew that her son would enjoy this gift so she sacrificed to buy it.

Maybe one day, I'll run across that red one row Farmall Super A. If not, I have precious memories of it, and of my Mama who bought it for me.

James 1:17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down fromrepparttar 144731 Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
