Part 12:
In The Beginning:
There were only two boys in my tenth grade, me, and the other one was an English-speaking Protestant, whom I grew to resent for two reasons. First, because I was of Acadian descent I had to study advanced classes in French, which were given after regular classes. Second, because I was a Catholic, I had yet another class after hours-I had to study catechism in French.

Part 11:
In The Beginning:
In grade ten the number of boys often plummeted to one or two. This happened because strong young sons were needed in family enterprises like fishing and farming. Therefore, the idea of getting a higher education was rarely considered. Then too, no spare resources were available for sending someone to what were then considered, “faraway” universities.

Revelation

Amazing Tangled Grace

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams” (Acts2:17).

I’ve published accounts of prophetic dreams, visions, and spiritual encounters, because these experiences have become a bigpart of my journey in Christ, and I want to devote this post to sharing how it all began. God literally turned my world upside down one evening, quite unexpectedly, and nothing has been the same since. What I see are glimpses much like blurred reflections in a mirror. “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams” (Acts 2:17).See alsoBehind the Veil,The One Working Behind the Scenes, Present Warnings,and

For the First Words Spoken after a Long Silence

Friendly Fairy Tales

sing until our blood is jazz,
we swing from June to June

Our skin is too tight. We need to sing,
our spirits folded into cranes, until
we can no longer stop our
words from spilling like blood,

Part 10:
In The Beginning:
Another incident of my early school days occurred in ninth grade. At that time the number of boys in class had dropped. I was cajoled into playing the part of a tired husband coming home from work in “domestic science”. There were some twenty girls in this class and, at that time, the important thing in a girl’s life was to prepare for the happy day when the would wed. So, for twenty times in succession I would open the door and one of those dears would invite me in with a peck on the cheek. (A peck was all the nuns allowed). She was supposed to ask if my day had gone well and then engage me in small talk.
