I have lived in the Houston Texas area for over 40 years. You may read about some of my life experiences and thoughts at: http://www.iam777.org
My wife and four children are all native Texans. However, I must say there is no prettier place on earth than the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia or the farm I spent many summers on, just over the hill from were "Ole" Sam Houston, himself lived until he was 14. The Chesapeake has it's charms too and looks a lot like where I live now just south of Houston on Galveston Bay. However, Like "Ole" Sam (Sam Houston), I will always be a native Virginian, and like him too, my destiny will always be in Texas.

School Story:

I am still enrolled in undergraduate classes at the School of Life. The prerequisite studies for my major were grueling, even life threatening at times. However, as I advanced from freshman to senior, I have never forgotten the great teachers and classmates I was privileged to come to know at Kecoughtan.

“Who can Type?” He asked. No one said anything. He ask the question again. “Who can type?” Again, not a single one of us answered him. “Who can type?” He asked for a third time. Still there was silence. Finally, after asking for the fourth or fifth time, the guy on the other end of the formation opposite me raised his hand and said, “I can type with two fingers”. Well anyone can type with two fingers, I thought to myself. Even I could type with two fingers. The sergeant motioned for this guy who had spoken up to follow him into the building behind us. That was it. This guy became the unit clerk for his entire tour in Vietnam. He got three hot meals a day, a clean cot and a hooch to sleep in out of the rain for the entire time he served in Vietnam. In an instant, in a blink of an eye, Satan had scared me out of accepting God’s escape plan for the next year. Frozen in fear and without realizing what had just happened, I had now consented, by my inaction, to having my mind polluted by the horrors of a vain war for what might be an entire life time. Events were now set in motion which would later also give Satan the tools he needed to construct a straw dog in my demonic mind, all because I had unwittingly refused to raise my hand to God’s salvation of the mind. No, I didn’t have a clue concerning the grave consequences that would result from not raising my hand that day until years later, when the Holy Spirit revealed the truth to me.
Now before I continue let me explain the Holy Spirit’s definition of a straw dog. A straw dog is a scapegoat. It’s a group, place, person or idea which Satan uses to deceitfully explain away the sin in our life. He gets us to ignore a hidden sin or become blind to it altogether by reminding us over and over of the straw dog. As long as he can keep us focused on this straw dog, we can’t see to repent of the real sin in our life and therefore cannot allow the Holy Spirit to deal with it. Because of the straw dog we can be deceived into thinking that we are free of the lurking iniquity which continually stalks our thoughts, looking for opportunities to seriously disrupt our relationship with the Holy Spirit, and thus our walk with God in general. My straw dog was brought to life by a spirit of fear.
The combat I experienced in Vietnam became my Straw Dog but that draw dog would not have been born had I not been afraid to learn to type. Let me just say now, that I have met few people in my life who have been overcome with fear to the extent which I have been overcome by it in the past. It was that fear which kept me from raising my hand. It was this gut wrenching fear that kept me from volunteering for a single extra-curricular activity in high school, and fear of my fellow man which made me drop out of college. Yet, as a point man who led the entire battalion on several moonless night marches, I was extremely cool, calm and collected in my thought processes, especially while under enemy fire. How could that be? Those are thought to be the actions of a very brave person but I am telling you the truth when I say that I was really a self-loathing coward. You will have to continue reading to learn more details about this mental pattern of human behavior but I can assure the reader that many of America’s and the world’s greatest war heroes have followed this satanic script to a tee. To expose this spirit of fear in Christians is one of the reasons why I am writing this book.
Many who read this may be thinking that fear is not a sin but I beg to differ. Remember what Jesus said about the servant who was afraid to invest his master’s money, so he buried it instead. His master, who is an example of Christ to us, called him a wicked and lazy servant. If giving in to this spirit of fear is not sin, itself, it surely is a catalyst which breeds sin.
The opportunity the Holy Spirit provided to me to be the unit clerk could have been mine but because of my fear of man I turned down that opportunity. I blew it. When this feeling of fear came over me, it kept me from speaking up, not just in this one instance, but throughout my entire life. Many times in my young adulthood, when I was presented with a real opportunity I would succumb to a rising tide of fear which caused me to miss out on many opportunities which were presented to me. Not only did I miss out for myself but fear prevented me from developing my God given talents which could have touched many hurting souls in a fallen world. The truth is, I had excellent written English skills and would have made an excellent unit clerk. Actually, I would have been able to serve my country more solidly than I did on the front lines if I had only had the courage to raise my hand. I had a high school classmate named Howard Thomas, who did serve as a clerk at Di An and I am sure the interpersonal skills he developed there while honorably serving his country contributed greatly to the successful career he had later on. Had I understood how to come against this spirit of fear which exacts such a high price for those of us who have lived under its spell, my entire life would have changed for the better even in this combat unit that I had been assigned to. No doubt, you may say, a decorated veteran who has successfully experienced unimaginable danger day-in and day-out has obviously learned to control fear much better than most people but that is simply not true. The spirit of fear is also a spirit of great deception. Here is a dirty little secret about the spirit of fear that I would like to share with the reader. As a Christian moves further from the will of God for his or her life strong feelings of fear will actually abate, luring its victim deeper and deeper into its funnel of destruction. May I let the reader in on another little secret? I was much more afraid of man and my leaders than I was of enemy bullets and shelling’s while I was in the Army and I am absolutely sure that enemy soldiers were much more afraid of their leaders than they were of me.

I remember Freddie’s infectious smile, from the first moment I laid eyes on him in the 6th grade at Jane Bryan Elementary School in Phoebus. We instantly became friends and went on to battle the bullies at Buckroe Junior High School, together, the only way we could, by out running them. They couldn’t catch us because he and I were the fastest 2 kids in the school and also among the smallest. After graduating Kecoughtan High School in the first graduating class 1965, he went his way and I went mine for many years. Recently though, we reconnected, thanks to some wonderful class mates who put together this high school class web site for us. After connecting, Fred and I stayed in touch on Facebook. He always had some positive encouraging and funny comments for all his Facebook friends. I soon felt as though we had never lost touch and his posts soon became a bright spot in my day just as his smile was years ago. I am looking forward to seeing that smile again someday and I believe that I will.

Happy birthday Sally. I am quite sure you don't remember me. However, as Hillary likes to say. At this stage of life, looking back, "What difference does it make?" The regret I have in my heart for never engaging that very unique sampling of humanity, which was the first graduating class of Kecoughtan High will follow me to the grave, yet it can never be undone. Looking back now, I cannot remember a single member of that class who was not very special.
