When Shirley and I got married in 2002, Psalm 37 was one of the readings that were chosen for the worship service. This Psalm holds a lot of meaning for both of us, and we knew that we needed the Lord to be with us on this new adventure.
We both started Trinity Lutheran Seminary in the fall of 2000, and didn’t know each before that. We had many things in common, like both losing spouses due to death, and we both had a son and daughter with our late spouses. Of course we had a few other issues such as not knowing what was going to happen when Shirley finished Seminary in 2004, and starting over in a new relationship after being single and after having long and very good marriages with our late spouses.
Thus, we knew that to begin this new adventure the Lord had to uphold us when we stumbled, for we surely would have our challenges. May this passage help you if you are about to enter a new stage in your life! Vernon T.
