Pastor´s Notes

Words of Life for December 2016

And one day while I was warden, I was going up on the bus, and I standing there. And I always was subject to spirits. I felt a strange feeling. I looked around, big strong woman setting there, well dressed, she looked up at me and she said, "Howdy do."
"Good evening," looked up like that.
And she said, "You're lonesome, aren't you?"
And I said, "No, ma'am."
She said, "Well, you're not at your home."
I said, "As much home as I got."
She said, " You were born for the west."
I said, "Say, what are you talking about?"
She said, "Maybe I better explain myself." Said, "Are you an officer?"
I said, "Conservation."
And she said, "Maybe, I better explain myself." She said, " I'm an astrologist."
And I thought, "Oh, another one of them funny people." So then...
I said, "Yes, ma'am." And I just kept looking... I moved up out towards the... There was a sailor standing right behind me, like that, the bus was loaded pretty well. I thought, "It was just a woman wanting to talk."
And she said, "I'd like to talk to you a few minutes." And I never acted like I heard her. I just kept looking on, you know. And so she said, "Could I speak to you just a moment?"

E-22 † And I thought, "That's not gentlemen like, but I--I don't want to talk to her." See? And I waited there. Then she said, "Say, you the conservation officer," said, "could I speak to you, just a minute?"
I said, "What did you want?"
She said, "Could I speak to you just a moment?"
I said, "What do you want?"
And she said, I thought, "That was nasty of you to act as a man," so just so indifferent, you know.
And she said, "Are you a Christian?"
And I said, "No. What's that to you?" See?
And she said... She said, "Well, I just wondered." And she said, " Did you know you were borned under a sign? "
Oh, my. I said, "Look, lady, I don't want to know nothing about that. See?" I said, "Not giving you any short answer, I've got a mother at home. See?" And I said, "I don't want to know nothing about that."
She said, "Oh, don't be so hard."
And I said, "Well, I don't want to know nothing about that stuff." See? I said, "I know nothing about it; I know nothing about any religious things, and I--I don't want to know anything about it." And I said, "I don't want to hurt your feelings." I just keep looking on ahead.
She said, "My..." And she said, "You shouldn't act like that."
And I said, "Well, I--I don't mean not to be a gentlemen; but I--I..."
She said, "Look! This is nothing to do with religion." She said, "I'm on my road to Chicago." We was on a Greyhound bus. She said, "I'm going to see my son, which is a Baptist minister." She said, " I work in the White House." And she said, " Did you know the first thing, did you know this United States and all the astronomy, and how they do? "
I said, "I know nothing about it." See?
She said, "Well, I work in the White House." And she said, "Right as you go in the steps of the White House, there's a astronomer calendar." Said, "There's a sailor standing behind you. Ask him if the moon doesn't control the tides."
I said, "I got sense enough to know that." See? And she said, "Well, that's right." Said, "And your birth has something..." Said, "Perhaps, I will tell you just exactly when you was born, would you believe me?"
And I said, "You can't do it in the first place." See?
She said, "Oh, yes, I can."
I said, "Let's hear you."
Said, " You was born on April the 6th at five o'clock in the morning in 1909."
I said, "That's right." I said, "Tell this sailor when he was born."
She said, "I couldn't do it."
"Well," I said, "why can't you tell him, if you just... if you could tell me?"
She said, " Because you were borned under a sign; I don't know when that was to appear." She said,
"Has ministers never talked to you?"

E-23 † I said, "I have nothing to do with preachers." I said, "I don't have nothing at all to do with them, at all." I'd always run from it, you know. I... Thinking of that, speaking to me, and I knowed that was the same thing, my mama told me them things was of the devil, and I stayed away from them." See? And I said, "No, sir. I have nothing to do with it."
And she said, "Well, nobody ever told you that?" She said, "Isn't it strange that preachers wouldn't know that?"
I said, "I don't fool around where they're at." And I said, "I--I thank you very much."
She said, "Well, look. You were borned under a sign, I want to tell you this, as a gift." And she said, "If you'd only could recognize it."
I said, "Yes, ma'am." I said, "Maybe, I will be a Daniel Boone, I like to hunt and I was born in Kentucky." And so... She said, and like that.
And she said, "No," she--she--she called me. She said, "No, that ain't what I'm talking about." I said, "Well, maybe I'd be a businessman. I've got a grammar school education."
She said, "That's not what I'm talking about. I don't know what you'd be. But I know that according to astronomy that on that time, they was..."
She tried to tell me about the...?... of the cycles, and, in commemoration of the Son of God, when three stars came together. She said, "Three wise men, the Magis was following three different stars, they didn't know when they were coming." Said, "When they gathered together, and met each other at the Bethlehem gate, following three different stars, and they formed the one morning star, that hung over the Christ... " And she said, "One was from the lineage of Ham, Shem, and Japheth, the three sons of Noah." And said, " Those three stars went together and made the one star that hung over Christ." And said, " Then when they separated, they've never went to their orbits, they've never been since." And said, "Now, all the stargazers in the country never seen such as that. And they never noticed it; it was just supernaturally given," and on talking like that, with all of her stuff.
Well, I couldn't understand what she was talking about. And she said, " In commemoration of that greatest gift that God ever give the earth, He sends back a--a something lesser in commemoration of that time."
"Well," I said, "lady, I am not a Christian. I have nothing to do with preachers. I have nothing to do with what you... I don't know nothing about the stars. All I know that I'm the game warden of Indiana. I'm doing the best that I can. Thank you." And went on, like that.
