The 'family' is 'fertile training ground' in 'righteousness'. Thus, 'train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. [Proverbs 22:6] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
If you are just joining 'me and Jesus' in 'this Auto-Bio Excerpts Room', the posts are in chronological order. Therefore, the 'foundation' information for my family's 'exodus' from our 'home' in North Carolina may be found on the posts on Tuesdays/Thursdays from Post 1-Post 7, May 29, 2018 - June 19, 2018. Another section of writing, 'the hand-writing was on the wall, necessitating the 'relocation'. [July 3, 2018; July 5, 2018]. Of interest to 'history buffs', and on the 'history of the times', are the posts in the section, [July 10, 2018; July 12, 2018; July 17, 2018; July 19, 2018; July 24, 2018]; 'preparing to leave', and, 'arriving in Massachusetts.' [July 26- August 14, 2018.]
From Tuesday/Thursday, August 28-30, 2018, we began and continue the 'testimonial' section, 'Life in Massachusetts' from Summer, 1964 - Fall, 1967', when I left 'home' for college in Ohio. During this period of time, I would 'enjoy' high school, and 'mature spiritually' in ways I could have never imagined. I would also meet my future husband.
Truly, a 'change' occurred from 'Spring' 1964 to 'Full Blossoming' in - Summer', 1967. I would learn, among other things, the meaning of Jeremiah 12:5, to wit: 'If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?' [NIV]
My first summer in the north, was a blend of cultural assimilation and educational reviews, being prepared not only spiritually, but, also psychologically, physically, for 'the Fall'. [See previous posts.]
But, then, two weeks or so before the 'beginning' of school after Labor Day, 1964, I had to go into the 'Board of Education's' location for 'testing'. After the results, Mother and I had an 'appointment' with 'guidance counselors' and other 'administrators' for 'school placement'. Part 4
The Classical High School 'building' we entered, was one of the most 'beautiful' buildings I had seen. Lots of 'dark and hard woods', perfectly polished, with spiral staircases, and tall ceilings. It reminded me of 'ancient' 'cathedrals', and other 'colleges' of note', like pictures I had seen of such as Cambridge and the like. I could almost hear 'classical music' from such as Bach or Beethoven playing in the 'background'. The 'elevator' we were taken in by 'the Custodian' was old and reminded you of the ones where there were 'service operators' in the major department stores in Worcester where Aunt Anita had taken me to shop during the summer. Oh, it was 'impressive'.
As we arrived on the 3rd Floor, and was exiting, a 'short', petite' 'lady' came towards us, to escort us to the 'Conference Room' for the 'meeting'. She pointed to the direction of the 'little girl's room' down the hallway and to the left, should I need to go. I explained that I was fine. She then walked Mother and me into the Conference room, where others were seated, and, who stood upon our entrance. She went to her 'place at the table', and the 'Principal' invited Mother to have a seat at the 'Table', and for me to be seated on the 'sidelines'.
Mother was 'discerning' - what she knew was the 'spiritual' 'resistance' from the 'hearts', even before she said a word. I could 'discern' a 'darkness', and 'felt' a 'chill' upon entering the room, but, I was not as mature in my 'faith' 'to understand' what was happening.
Mother always knew that Jesus is our ultimate example of resisting temptation in spiritual warfare. We observe and learn from how Jesus handled direct attacks from Satan when He was tempted in the wilderness [Matthew 4:1–11]. Each temptation was combated with the words 'it is written.' And since the Word of the living God is the most powerful weapon against the temptations of the devil. like her, 'I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you' [Psalm 119:11].
Mother was 'mature' and knew what was going on, 'spiritually'. She knew that the keys to success in 'spiritual warfare', or anything in life, required - such as 'loving your enemy', [Matthew 5:43-47]; and 'resisting the enemy' and his 'strategies', drawing nearer to God. [James 4:7]. She knew that we could not 'react in the flesh' or our natural 'attitude', but, that we had to rely on God’s power, not our own. [Romans 7-8] During our morning devotions, we had 'put on the whole armor of God'. We had and would continue to draw on the power of Scripture--the Word of God is the Spirit’s sword. We had prayed for perseverance and holiness, making our appeal to God.
We were therefore ready to stand firm [Ephesians 6:13–14]; submitting to God; as we resisted the devil’s work [James 4:7], knowing that the Lord of hosts is our protector, and ultimately 'in charge'. 'Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken' [Psalm 62:2].
So, Mother, by the Grace of God, prevailed as each 'question' or 'suggestion' was spoken to deter Mother, about such as how difficult it would be for me to attend Classical, as there were not 'others like your daughter attending the school'; or, 'do you not think it better for her to spend a year or so at one of the other High Schools, and, perhaps, in the future 'transfer' to Classical?'; or, 'it will be unfortunate should she not be able to keep up, and then suffer an emotional set-back that may harm her for life'; and other such 'seemingly caring', but actaully 'bias' and 'non-sense'. And yet, once all the 'naysaying' did not deter my Mother, it was my turn to be 'drilled' to 'discourage' me from wanting to attend Classical'. It was my turn, to move to a seat at the 'Conference Table', as my Mother moved to the 'side-lines'. How would I do with questions, to establish, among other things, 'my general attitude' towards 'the leaders'? Did I have the same 'respect', or, what?
More of course will be posted on our Thursday, September 20, 2018. Had I matured enough to realize that this was 'a test' of my own faith? To see, not the 'people', but, the devil? Please stay tuned. Amen. Amen.
