Now, my Beloved Friends. You have a great idea of my 'little big brother' Clauz who was two years older than me. But, I had 'two brothers'. My 'Big Brother' on Earth, Ben, was fifteen years older than me. So, as I was growing up, you may say, that he took a type of 'earthly', 'dad role' in both our lives. While Clauz needed certain 'attentions', for me, Ben was like 'a good angel'.
'Oh, you just have to admit it - Satira - Ben 'spoiled' you rotten!! After all, didn't he always call you a 'little princess' and tell you that princesses do not have anything to do with frogs!'
OK. I admit it. You see, we were very good friends. I could ask him questions about - 'boys' and the 'things' I did not talk with Mother about, or, for that matter, my 'Big Sister', Carlena, [who was more like a 'second' mother, rather than a 'sissy', for she was seventeen years older than me]. But, Carlena was married and did have a little girl, we called 'Jimmie', who was - two years younger than me. Now, she and I could actually 'wreck havoc', because everyone thought she was 'innocent'. Oh, did we take advantage of that 'myth'!! Later my sister would have two boys, [my nephews], but, they were too little for me to have any 'kappers' with, for I was 'their big auntie', setting an example. [Big Smile! Actually I had to watch 'saying one thing and doing another' around them, for they were quick to see 'inconsistencies' in my conduct. Add all this together with many 'school chums', [some who were 'saved', some who were not], and well. You get the picture of 'my world'.
Now, when it came to my relationship with my 'Big, Big Bro' Ben, oh, I loved for him to allow me to run with him on 'Friday nights' between the 'church sociables'. A cousin, George would be around, with - a car. And, as they say - 'boys will be boys'. For Ben and George and sometimes another cousin, O'neill, would head to the 'city' [Greensboro], generally for - yes - the Pool Hall. And, yes, Mother had 'strictly forbidden' my Big, Big Brother - 'Do not take your little sister to the Pool Hall. If you are going, let her know that she may not accompany you, and be sure to drop her off at one of the sociables at church, back home or, at her sister's.'
Now, that was 'the rule', 'engraved in - GOLD!' There was to be no Pool Hall episodes for 'Li'l Miss Tidy! [This was my 'family pet' name for me, in the 'inner circles'.]
So then, how did I get to 'the Pool Hall' one Friday night? And, why would I have to reveal this 'knowledge' at the risk of 'corporal punishment' or, worse? Stay turned, for this was one of the most critical events in the 'Spring' of my life, in the Summer, 1963, one year before we would relocate to Massachusetts. And, this was one of the reasons for the ultimate need to 'relocate' out of the Klu Klux Klan infested South, at the heart of the 'Civil Rights Movement'.
And yet, the Lord was sovereign and in control, using the wickedness of others, in furtherance of His purpose for my family and me. An Escapade of Escapades, and, another opportunity for me to get a real understanding of - 'injustice'!! They meant it for evil, but God meant it for good. [Genesis 50:19,20]
And, at the same time, I would learn how 'the fervent, effectual prayer of the righteous' prevails unto the Good Lord, who works in mysterious ways. Stay tuned. Amen. Amen. [James 5:16]
'God Moves in a Mysterious Way'
Text: William Cowper, 1731-1800
Music: William B. Bradbury, 1816-1868
1. God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
2. Ye fearful Saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
3. His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding ev'ry hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
4. Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan his works in vain;
God is his own interpreter,
And he will make it plain.
