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]
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 5
Continuing from our Part 4, September 18, 2018, now that I was seated where Mother had been seated, it would be my turn to 'run the gauntlet'. Could I do this thing, could I remain - un-intimidated, in control of negative emotions, and the like. Only if, like Mother, I remembered to lean not on my own understanding, [Proverbs 3:5]; if I remembered all my training, including , that it is not by power nor by might, but by the Spirit and Grace of God, [Zechariah 4:6], through my faith, in order to prevail.
Because of my great love for Mother, and because I had lived, seeing how God had always brought us through things, in answers to her fervent prayers, I followed her example. I did not in the modern words of today, 'loose my cool', not 'get flustered', first about the fact that people knew we were due there, and were there and could have opened the doors, but, did not. Second and further, I did not get disrespectful nor bitter when asked such ridiculous [at the time, and even now], questions like 'how will you be when no one wants to talk to you, or to be-friend you?; or, 'what if the children, seeing that children will be children, call you bad names?' Or, 'what if the students will not want you to sit with them in class or in the lunchroom', or, a host of other and like types of questions.
All of this, I was being able to discern, was based upon their own projected 'fears' of 'inter-racial' conditions I would be posing, for them, though not necessarily - the children of my age at the time.
Now, I was not oblivious to all of this - but, I did not get angry, by the Grace of God. And by not getting angry, therefore, I did not develop a 'poor me' attitude, which only leads to - ugh! - 'bitterness' and a 'host' of other 'self-defeating' 'ills', 'blaming', revenge', etc. This was understanding the 'spiritual enemy' behind the attitudes of the people, and that they were the snares of - the enemy of God and man, the devil. [Ephesians 6] Hallelijah Chorus Time, Amen. Amen.
And, to tell the truth, for the first time in my life, up close and personal, I saw the irrationality of - 'fear' in the minds of those who were supposed to be - intelligent. For me, this was an eye-opener. You see, there were some 'myths' being shattered. I thought 'educated people' were 'rational'. And yet, I saw them as pitiful and 'scared' of a lot of - 'what ifs', and realizing further, that I would be - 'alone' from a natural perspective, but, not from the 'spiritual perspective'. Talking about 'evil for good' in my life, their attitudes only 'strengthened me in my faith in Jesus'. [Romans 8:28-29] For you see, they did not understand - though they 'called themselves' 'Christian', that when you have Jesus, you really are never alone, and, He will carry you through. [Deuteronomy 31:6; Joshua 1:5; John 14:18-23; Hebrews 13:5-6] Amen. Amen.
In a nutshell, I told all the ones at the table, this very same thing, not being ashamed of the Gospel and witnessing for My Savior. [Romans 1:16-17; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; 1 Peter 3:15-16] As a result, the 'Chaplain' cut the questions short, and before I knew it, Mother and I were being escorted by - 'the little short lady', to register and get my books for the courses for the Fall. That little short lady and I would be very good friends for the entire period I attended Classical, including being my first 'Home Room Teacher' and 'Math Instructor' and 'Faculty Adviser', Miss Dericho. [I will be ever grateful to the Lord for her.] She was - 'a true Believer', as evidenced by the 'content of her character', and 'conduct' in accordance with 'the love of God, shed abroad to me.' [Romans 5:5] She would always pat me on the hand or arm, or, catching my eye from a distance and smiling or nodding, ever 'reassuring, encouraging me', 'yes, you can make it', even if the words were not always 'spoken'. [1 Thessalonians 5:11] Truly, one of those who were as it were, 'on my Mother's team', even if never formally arranged to be so. For, my Mother's 'team' was put together by - the Lord. Amen. Amen.
Lesson pointer. One does not need as many 'cheer-leaders' or a 'crowd' to succeed. One in the Lord, will do, when of the Lord, and placed there, by the Lord. But, there would be others, and none of the 'what-ifs' occurred, but, there were a few 'rough spots' during the first two or three weeks of the first school year.
More on the next posts. Please stay tuned, in the Lord. Amen. Amen.
