In the seasons of life, unexpected circumstances may arise. We have to roll with the punches. Two notable items:
1) Been enrolled in the PhD Psychology/Theology program at Liberty University, start date either March, June, or August. My previous comments regarding Grand Canyon University still hold true; it’s just that Liberty may be a better fit.
2) Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I am retitling my book: ‘The Book of Carter: The Brain Injury, Life, and Legacy of Carter Jackson.’ So currently about 420 pages typed, I need to finish the 33rd edit, run it through Grammarly, input the changes, and then select from one of three or four publishers who have expressed interested.

I appreciate Dr. Beck Geesaman’s counsel. Thank you!

Happy birthday, Benny. Seems like yesterday we were young when the world was so different. We played outside all day and did our chores. What a lovely life we had. Now 49 years later, it’s time to say Happy Birthday. What a blessing you’ve been. Keep growing. Keep persisting. Look to the Lord.

(Also please remember Jim and Debby this day, the birthday of their son. Still grieving, still aching. Their loss never ending yet their hope eternal.)

Thank you, thank you. Mr. Drake, superior student-service on the telephone recently. Eager to see what God does with my Liberty University app. May actually turn out to be my first choice for the doctoral program. He counseled me on the phone over a half hour and laboriously coached me setting up Google Docs on my phone. I submitted a 1,003-word essay as part of the requirements.

I mention this here because he was intrigued to learn about my books, “book promo.” Thank you, sir. Seemed excited to investigate my debut project with his wife. An unspoken prayer request for her, plz….Miss Savannah. I look forward to speaking to him again as time moves on.

Shared my story and of ‘The Book of James’ at a local Chick-fil-A as I’ve been working on my edits the last few days.  Miss Patricia (PA) and Mr. Bill (OH–yay!) who work there have become wonderful friends. They are excited to read ‘Till death do us part;’ (unfortunately so poorly written. lol)
