I’m Rejoicing With the Wife of My Youth
I’ve been married to my best friend Marie for fifty-one years. We have three lovely daughters, eleven amazingly creative grandchildren, and three beautiful great-grandchildren. And we live just outside of Memphis, Tennessee.
I’m a Vietnam veteran. And I thought I was one of the lucky ones who got away scot-free. But apparently, nobody who goes to war ever gets away scot-free. I used to be irritable, impatient, and angry all the time. And then, one day I reached the point where I could no longer control these emotions.
My Doctors diagnosed me with Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder. They took me off work and I never returned to my job as a Letter Carrier. I applied for a medical retirement. But the Postal Service took a year to process it. And during that time, my wife and I had no income. This was rock-bottom for me. I was broke and I was too sick to work And I didn’t know if I would ever be able to work again.
So I cried out to God in desperation and asked him to help me. And I started spending hours each day studying the Bible. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time. But I was fellowshipping with God in his word. And while I was getting to know the Lord, he was teaching me things that I needed to know. One of these things was how to cope with PTSD.
I’ve been mining the Bible for information for the past twenty years. And whenever a Bible verse jumped out at me, I added it to my collection. I’m excited about the things that I’ve learned from the Bible. And I want to share them with everyone. That’s why I wrote A Crash Course in the Bible.
A Crash Course in the Bible is a summary of the Bible’s most important teachings. And it contains Bible verses that everyone needs to know. If you take these Scriptures to heart, they will comfort you and give you peace. They will help you get through difficult times and they will change your life forever.
A Crash Course in the Bible is available on Amazon as an ebook, a paperback, and an audiobook on Audible. When you have the audiobook version on your phone, then you can listen to the word of God anywhere, anytime. You can even listen to it when you’re in bed at night. Then, you can be like the man who’s described in Psalm One:
“But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:2-3)
