I don’t know what is going on right now, but Al does. I find it odd that I wrote a prompt for Daily Prompt, called Twilight Zone. It was written as I would like to see Al leave. Now a couple of hours after I wrote that, Al started asking questions.
He hasn’t spoken all day and even now I can barely make out what he is saying, but I got enough to know where his head is. He started out asking me what kind of light he would see when he left. He went from there to asking me how he should let Jesus know he is ready.
Through many tears I answered him the best I could. He is breathing shallow, and some gasping for air, but I have seen this for a while now. He told me that he sees some people and that while I was washing dishes he asked Jesus to take him home.
I stayed with Al for a long time and we just chatted and when I got ready to leave his room for bed, I told him more than once how I thought he was the best brother in the whole world. I told him how much I loved him. I told him that if he decided to go home during the night it was alright with me.
I turned to leave his room and I told him once more again how much I loved him and he said something. I couldn’t make out what it was so I went back to him and leaned down so I could hear him. He said, ” I love you too sis, see you later.”
I don’t know what that means. Only Al and God does, but I do know that I am crying like a big baby right now. Fear that I will wake up and he is gone is real. No one knows Al’s time, but God and Al do.
The words are blurry so I am getting off of here. I will check on him one more time. I will tell him one more time that I love him. I will hold his hand so he knows I love him, just in case he leaves tonight, and then I will leave it in God’s hands and go to bed.
