“Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is [deep] within me, bless His holy name.
Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul,
And do not forget any of His benefits;
Who forgives all your sins,
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you [lavishly] with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the [soaring] eagle.”
~ Psalm 103:1-5
Amplified Bible (AMP)
“I think that age as a number is not nearly as important as health.
You can be in poor health and be pretty miserable at 40 or 50.
If you’re in good health, you can enjoy things into your 80s.”

“If you can’t ‘Bank’, there’s no need to work. If I want to do a charity or freebie, I will choose that on my own.
But, basically, I work to see “Okay, the nut is cracked what do I have left to put into the bank?”
Because the bottom line is to capitalize on my health and success, or popularity, at this moment;
because it’s not promised to me in the future (and to prepare for that future).
Even if I become more so, there’s no one to promise that to me. I’d be a fool to cry later and say,
“I can’t pay my bills; I don’t have anything.”, and whatever. I don’t want to be one of those people.
I want to say, “Look, when it was time to make hay, I made it. I’m like a little ant, I went merrily to the bank and put it away.””

“I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce.
But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?
If someone lives through an accident, his aim is to become better and healthy.
My aim is always to progress – to make better decisions and be a better father,
a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again.
~ Ryan Phillippe,

“I think that comedy is such a tool to open the heart, to loosen up the muscles, to loosen up the brain.
God knew how important it would be to laugh because He said it is a great medicine,
and when used properly, it is the greatest of medicines.”
