This song was used as the music for Psalm 105, for Psalm 142, and is referenced by Song 003 – Alone and by Song 080 – The Road of Life. We have been admonished at church to personalize the scriptures, and to put ourselves into the scriptures. I am known for taking this type of admonition personally. I do not know anyone else who has put the 42 chapters of the Book of Job to music, twice. Once, just to be able to review the scriptures. The second time to put themselves into the scripture. There is about 8 hours of recorded music linked to this page (4-11 minutes per chapter, say an average of 6 minutes, times 42 chapters, times the Job and the Roice versions). I doubt if anyone will ever listen to all of these recordings. Oh well! So why make the effort? Because I hope some of my descendants will come to understand the depth of the emotional pain which has been the sad part of my life. Thankfully the happy part of my life has more than balanced out these emotional lows. It took months of planning to have all 84 of these chapters recorded so they could be posted as a regular song. Then I struggled with what image represents Job, and his struggles and his pain. I finally decided on the cover photo from the autobiography I wrote for my kids, which is titled: Stand Back Up. This photo of an oil slick on the road in front of our condo was taken on the 27th of April 2016, and reminded me of the oil slick in on 200 North in front of the Elementary School in about Third Grade (described on page 127), my Rainbow Mosrite Guitar (pages 76 and 243), my first map at Mobil Oil over the Andaman Sea (page 127), the double rainbows I’ve seen, including one during 2015 Science Camp at Aunt Sara’s (page 118), all of the maps made with Landmark software using the spectrum color bar, and the rainbow mosaic under construction outside my office window (2016).
