2 Timothy 1:7, 'For God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control.'
How in the world did Li'l Miss Tidy convince her 'Big, Big Bro' to break Mother's 'Gold Standard Rule', never to take her to the Pool Hall? [Continuing from Post 3, June 5, 2018]
Really, it did not start out in 'the way of disobedience'. [Generally, it never does!] We started to Uncle Clifton's and Aunt Mae's after a 'church sociable' one Friday night in August, 1963. George, Ben, O'Neill and I were going to get my birthday present from them. They always gave me quite a birthday surprise!! But, on the way to the address, there were all sorts of police cars and fire trucks, and streets were blocked. As we made our way through other streets, we came upon the street where the Pool Hall was located. George decided that he would stop and find out what was going on. There were riots going on in Greensboro as it was in the 'heat of the Civil Rights Movement' and students of A & T were very involved. My brother had attended A & T and at the Pool Hall parking lot were some of his friends who were explaining that there was to be a 'sit-in' and the location.
Now, 'Big, Big Bro' and the others wanted to participate in the 'non-violent' march and 'sit-in', BUT, there was one little problem - what to do with Li'l Miss Tidy?? There was no way, they were going to take me, endangering my life. But, at the same time, there was no way to get across town to Uncle Clifton's and Aunt Mae's. And, to return the 30 miles home would cause them to miss the 'sit-in'. Then, 'Big, Big Bro' decided to let Miss Stella, the wife of the Pool Hall Owner, 'baby-sit' me, until they would return.
Now, of course Miss Stella was also the 'cashier' for her husband and was at the Pool Hall!! Egads!
Not go to the 'sit-in'? Unthinkable, right?
Thus, this is how I got to visit and see inside the Pool Hall.
Nothing really happened, for with all the other activity, there was virtually no one in the building. And, Mother did not really have to know about it, right? Unless....
By about 10:30 p.m. that very same night, George, Big, Big Bro and O'Neill, all with me in tow, were on the way back to the country, speeding a little, for I was supposed to be home by 11:00 p.m. As we turned off Highway 29 onto the road home, we were passing the 'Country Store' where there were Sheriffs' cars and lots of trucks in the front. I could see windows broken or knocked out. But then, all of a sudden, there was yelling at us to 'stop' with some indignant words coming from the mouths of the men.
George told O'Neill to hold onto me very tightly, for he was not going to stop until he got back to Mother's house, about three miles down the road. And he put his 'foot to the peddle' and flew, with dust behind us, and sirens loudly in pursuit!! No one said anything, except when we drove up to the front of the house, blowing our horn and jumping out of the car, running for the front porch.
Mother had been waiting in the front room, and came out on the porch, with her shotgun. She took one look at all four of us, said 'Get in the house'; had her double barrel shotgun, and stood in the very middle of the porch.
I had never seen Mother look so - 'radiant', 'as calm as a cucumber', as we say in the South. [Later I would learn, that she had been praying from about 8 o'clock that evening, for she sensed in her born-again spirit, that something terrible was afoot. She had been in the presence of the Lord, like when Moses went up on the mountain and returned to the children of Israel. [Exodus 34:29-35]
But, how was one little 4 foot, 8 inch woman, with only a double barreled shotgun going to hold off 10 angry white men??? Stay tuned, for 'God does move in mysterious ways' yesterday, today and forever for those who put their trust in Him. [Hebrews 1:12; 13:8] And, He is the Husband and Protector of the widow, and, the Father of the fatherless. [See such as Deuteronomy 10:18; Exodus 22:22; Psalm 68:5; 146:9;Isaiah 54:4-5; Malachi 3:5 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Prayerfully, you are pulling aside, taking the time, seeking answers to questions you may have about things which happened in your life in the past, or, for directions for your life, today, right? He is just waiting for you to come to Him. He, and He only can answer your deepest needs of the heart. Try Him, today. [See for instance such as Deuteronomy 4:29; Proverbs 8:17; Jeremiah 29:12-14; Matthew 6:33; 7:7-8] Amen. Amen.

Sweet Hour of Prayer!
1. Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care
And bids me at my Father's throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief
And oft escaped the tempter's snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
And oft escaped the tempter's snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer!
2. Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since he bids me seek his face,
Believe his word, and trust his grace,
I'll cast on him my ev'ry care
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!
I'll cast on him my ev'ry care
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer! Amen. Amen.
