[The righteous] will still bear fruit in old age, 
they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, 
“The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and 
there is no wickedness in him." - Psalm 92:12, 14-15 (NIV)

Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for the gift of long life. Help us to live our lives as a way of giving thanks to you. Amen.
