PSALM 23
A Psalm of David

The Lord is my Shepherd (Thats Relationship!)


I shall not want (Thats Supply!)
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures (Thats Rest!)
He leadeth me beside the still waters (Thats Refreshment!)
He restoreth my soul (Thats Healing!)
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness (Thats Guidance!)
For His Names sake (Thats Purpose!)
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
(Thats Testing!)
I will fear no evil (Thats Protection!)
For Thou art with me (Thats Faithfulness!)
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me (Thats Discipline!)
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
(Thats Triumph!)
Thou anointest my head with oil (Thats Consecration!)
My cup runneth over (Thats Abundance!)
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
(Thats Blessing!)
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord (Thats Security!)
For ever. (Thats Eternity!)

A Soldiers Testimony
Booker T. Weatherall was born on March 3, 1925, in Forrest City, AR, to
the union of the late Erskine and Laura (House) Weatherall.
He and Beulah (Rowell) Weatherall celebrated their Diamond Anniversary
in 2013 and would have been married 53 years in June, 2016.
Booker was a Deacon, Sunday School Teacher, and Witnessing Team
Member in Israel Baptist Church, Hamilton Ohio. When he relocated to his
hometown in Forrest City, AR, he served as a Sunday School Teacher, Trustee and Community Volunteer via Beth Salem Baptist Church. Upon his return to Hamilton, he re-joined Israel Baptist and was faithful until death.

Booker would say his greatest accomplishments were, Being a loyal soldier of the Lord, working with his hands at Weatherall Contractors, ministering to his family, and serving in his community. Others would point out
that he was a recognized WWII soldier in the Munford Pointe Marines First
Negro Battalion. His beloved spouse and offspring would add that his greatest accomplishment was his Godly example: He was a great spiritual patriarch and priest of his home.

When he realized his time on earth was short, Booker was not afraid. He
chose to die at home surrounded by family rather than live artificially via machines. He had long ago enlisted his service to the Lord and endeavored to
serve faithfully. At 11:46 pm on Friday, January 22, death was swallowed up
in victory. A weary soldier who had fought a good fight, finished his course
and reported in to God to receive his crown of righteousness (2 Tim 4:7-8).

Eulogy . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Rev. Anthony McPeters

Booker leaves behind four generations to revel in his testimony, including


his loving wife, Beulah Weatherall; his surviving sister, Luceille Gillespie
(Joseph, CA); his children: Kenneth Weatherall, Betty Black, Barbara Howard (Douglas), L. Lanell Holston (Alberta), and Henrietta HolstonThompson (Clifford); his grandchildren: Tressie (Sylvester) Anigbo, Shanell
Holston-Chapell (Michael), Mollie Thompson, Jamin Holston (Miranda),
Khristina Thompson, and Shannen Thompson, as well as fourteen great
grandchildren and a host of family, friends and community members with
whom he shared his faith, humor, counsel, and talents.
Although our loss is great, the hope and reality of heaven is far greater.
This is the end of a short era on earth and the dawn of a new, eternal one in
glory. We love you Honey. May God help us meet again when the roll is
called up yonder.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
We are so grateful for your words of encouragement, cards of condolences, meals of hospitality, touches of ministry, and prayers of intercession during this time. It would be Bookers greatest wish that in exchange for these cups of cold water (Mark 10:41) you would also enlist
with his Master and share in His generous reward. God bless you.
