Roland was a great man and one that I looked up to. Never a time that I spent in his presence that we didn’t talk about the Lord and he always had encouraging words of wisdom. Psalm 37:23-26 23. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his ways. 24. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. 25. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging bread. 26. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
