“Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, And all that is [deep] within me, bless His holy name. 2 Bless and affectionately praise the Lord, O my soul, And do not forget any of His benefits; 3 Who forgives all your sins, Who heals all your diseases; 4 Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you [lavishly] with loving-kindness and tender mercy; 5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the [soaring] eagle.”
“I feel the presence of a higher power.
I believe that what you give is what you get.
It’s universal law. I believe in the power of prayer and of words.
I’ve learned that when you predict that negative things will happen, they do.”
“The fellowship of true friends who can hear you out,
share your joys, help carry your burdens,
and correctly counsel you is priceless.”
