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 not have ever 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]
School Days Cumulative Excerpts, 1964-1967 Post Series 9-b
Let's see now. The first day of school. On post 8 I, September 20, 2018, what was said about 'children will be children'? But, did the teachers fail to mention - 'urine filled balloons' being thrown by cowards from the balcony of the third floor, over the entrance door? Was that - 'children will be children' in the so-called 'premier of high school' in Worcester, Massachusetts???!!
A word of warning. When you are scheduled to go to school, and, you are on time, but you do not see others entering a door - be forewarned - something is 'afoot'.
On the Friday of my first week, I was entering Classical from the side of the building from the street where cars were not parked. Since I did not drive a car as so many students did, I never went in the doors off the parking lots on the other sides of the buildings. I had established a 'routine' that had obviously been 'noted' by a few 'children who would be children'. For on this particular morning, I was arriving around 7:45 a.m. and as I walked up to the door, all of a sudden, 'water filled balloons' came crashing down on my head!
As they broke open, I could smell what definitely was not H2O. It was urine. I have to be honest. I had at first 'flash backs' to my years 'fending for my brother Clauz' and 'the metal lunch pail', my favorite 'weapon of choice' The 'sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God', did not immediately come to my mind! [Ephesians 6] No, instead, my mind went through some interesting and immediate 'thoughts', and 'surprisingly graphic words' that not only shall I not 'replay' here, but they even shocked me, that I would think such things!!
To stop the thoughts, I began to ponder my options. This was not the days of 'cell phones', and besides, Mother was already on her way by bus to her housekeeping job! I realized that I would have to go home and get a shower and change, and then return to school, missing my French Class. The thought of walking through downtown, smelling of urine, was terrible for me. But, these thoughts did not assuage all my desire to be 'angry', and the 'present and urgent desire' to 'find the boys and kick them where they would know they were messing with the wrong person!' BUT, the All Knowing God, knew this. Thankfully, He had a plan.
As I was standing in my 'wet' and most 'smelly' 'predicament', a young man came up to me, and asked if he could assist me. I did not know who he was, but, explained that I needed to let my Home Room teacher, Miss Dericho know that I would be late, and would she let my French teacher know that I would have to miss class? Would he kindly take the message into the building for me, as I would be going home?
Amazingly, he insisted that he would, but, that I should wait for him to come back, and he would drive me home, wait for me, and bring me back to school. Like that, he explained, I would not have to miss my French Class. [Could this be an angel sent by God, in human form? This thought kicked out the other thoughts!!, for 'good always overcomes evil! Romans 12:21; Hebrews 1:14-2:4]
No. The young man was Louis Caplen, a junior, and lead player on the basketball team. We would become great friends, and study partners as well as him coming to my Baptist Church on Sundays, and I would participate with him and his family in Shabat on the Sabbath!! Eventually, he would become - 'a follower of Jesus Christ'! Do not tell me that God does not work in mysterious ways, ever performing His miracles; ever bringing 'good out of evil'! [Genesis 50:20; Proverbs 14:12; Isaiah 40:28; 55:8-9; Romans 8:28-29; 11:33;Ephesians 5:32. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
While the culprits were never 'discovered', [to my knowledge], neither did they ever try such a 'prank' again. As for people not wanting to have anything to do with me - hey, with a 'friend' like Louis, who was most popular, no one dared to 'assault me again', either. [I have always been thankful for meeting and being mutually encouraging and having a wonderful friendship with Louis in such a manner that he came to faith in Jesus Christ. I would, if the Lord deemed it necessary, stand under urine balloons again for the outcome being, the salvation of his soul! Amen. Amen.]
Lesson Pointers - Even though one is saved, they are still in the flesh, and must be on guard. [Romans 7-8; Ephesians 6; Galatians 5] The Lord was most merciful to me that day, [and other days all my life], for I did not have time to 'fuse and fume' over what happened. We are never 'to let the sun go down on our anger', but, allow God to handle any vengeance. Before the sun went down, I had from the heart 'forgiven' the ignorant boys, not even wishing them harm of any sort. What they had meant for evil, God meant for good, the salvation of Louis, and furthering my strength in Him! [Genesis 50;20; Romans 8:28-29]
[In addition, see such as Matthew 18:21-35; Mark 11:25-26; Luke 6:27-37; Romans 12:14, 17-21; Ephesians 4:26; Colossians 3:13; 1 Peter 3:9] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
But, there would be more close friends, like Ginny, who was an excellent 'field hockey partner' and 'swimmer', together with Jacqueline, who just loved to 'dissect specimens' and take 'field trips' to gather specimens for our science projects. We did well in all our endeavors, both academic and extra-curricular!
More, therefore on future posts of the 'times at Classical High School', that were as great as if I had been in North Carolina. We just cannot hesitate to move forward in our lives. God is sovereign and in control. He does have plans for us. We need not fear. [Proverbs 12:25; Jeremiah 29:11; Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:7] Amen. Amen.
