AS OUR SMALL NEIGHNORHOOD OF WATERFORD, VA, CELEBRATED FARMER RUSSELL BROWN'S 86TH BIRTHDAY A FEW WEEKS AGO, WE GAVE TRIBUTE TO ALL THE YEARS OF BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS THIS MAN HAS ENDURED AS A FARMER. FARMER BROWN IS ON HIS JOHN DEERE TRACTOR , EVERY DAY HE CAN BE, EXCEPT SUNDAY WHEN HE DRIVES TO CHURCH IN HIS SUNDAY GOING TO MEETING CAR. HE ONCE ASKED ME, "YA RECKON GOD WILL SEND ME TO HEAVEN, ON MY JOHN DEERE TRACTOR?" I IMMEDIATELY RESPONDED, "RUSSELL, I RECKON THE LORD WILL TAKE YOU TO HEAVEN ON YOUR JOHN DEERE TRACTOR!" AND HE SMILED WITH HIS BEAUTIFUL, SPARKLING BABY BLUE EYES, AND GIGGLED, GOOD!

It was great to see farmers honored during the Super Bowl, but there is a farmer that I would like to honor all of the time! My dad was one of 10 children, born and raised on a farm, in Elberton, Georgia. His family raised and grew most everything they needed to survive on their farm, except for a few things, like coffee, salt, pepper, toilet paper etc. Everything his family could catch out of the water, or shoot in the woods or fields, was just extra food on the table! When WW2 came along, my father joined the Army to help protect his country, the USA. He ended up becoming a career soldier. During his 32 years in the Army, he participated in two more wars, the Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War. After my dad retired, he went back to farming, and managed the family farm all by himself! There were few things that he needed help with, such as getting the hay out of the field, after it had been baled. He was always busy, planting crops and raising animals, and fixing all of the things that seemed to be breaking down on a fairly regular basis. It wasn't unusual to see baby chicks and quail, under a light, in a box, in the dining room after thy had been hatched. There was a pen outside that contained pheasants that he had hatched, and doves, who were recovering after they had been "winged" when he had been out hunting. There was a 50/ 50 wild/ domestic turkey that strutted around the house like the big pet that he was! My dad usually kept long hours. It wasn't unusual to have supper, when I was visiting, between 10 - 12 p.m. at night, because my dad had been out plowing in the fields with his tractor, which had lights! In spite of his long hours, he still took the time to make a great meal. My dad was a really great cook, who at one time was considering opening up a restaurant! My dad continued to love to hunt and fish, and it wasn't unusual to find out that the game warden had come by to check on my dad, to keep him on the "straight and narrow"! He really loved his hunting dogs, and sometimes I thought that he loved his bird dog more than he loved his own children! My dad was always considered to be extremely generous, sharing much of what his farm produced with others, until his failing health kept him from farming. His arthritis didn't keep him down, until the very end. He used to like to watch things like "He Haa", "Charlie's Angels", and Brave's baseball, but his eyesight became so poor, that he wasn't even able to enjoy his favorite programs. One thing he never let go of, was his relationship with his God. His pastor would come by and share communion with him on a regular basis! God bless you, dad!

The memories! Whether it be Walnut, CA. Chino, CA. or on the outskirts of Lawrence, KS. Lincoln, NE. or Mayetta, KS! Even here in the High Desert, throughout most of my life, that is all my family had is land! Even though now we do not have any livestock, it seemed that back then, that is all we had in one form or another! Especially horses and ponies! Great memories!

When people talk about the "World's oldest profession" it makes me mad that they would disparage the title by linking it with an unmanly act! The world's TRUE oldest profession is also the most noble & that is the profession of being a farmer! I have said for many years that you shouldn't critize farmers when you're sitting at a table full of food!

thank you for making my day. I wish someday I can be man enough to be a farmer. I am 65 today and am leaving it in GODS hands they don't make them like that any more.

I just wanted to say I know why this went viral because it is true farmers are the most hard working folks around these days. Not just anyone can be a farmer you have to be dedicated to the land and the animals. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the farmers out there. You are appreciated and this video is awesome.

" It is true that a prophet is without honor in 'her' own family." ~ I love that you said this. Precious! God Bless.

Enjoyed this commercial, very touching. I know in our current economy that there are large corporate farms, but it still all boils down to each individual who puts his or her hand to the task at hand, whether they be an owner in a corner office or an hourly paid immigrant working out under the sun all day. God honors honest labor and it is through His grace that our needs are met. As someone previously stated, Adam was the first farmer, God entrusted him to take care of the Garden; that is still man's responsibility to care for the earth that God made. We are accountable to Him. And by the way, this rendition of 'God Made a Farmer" has some phrases left out from the original piece. Take time to look it up and enjoy the entire reading and watch some other videos. Have a blessed day!

The Ram truck is a Dodge model. Always has been. Not sure why they market it this way without mentioning Dodge. There is even a web site called ramtrucks.com, and I couldn't find a mention of Dodge anywhere on the web site. Sort of an odd strategy.
