It is a good thing to give thanks to God Almighty and count our blessings. Doing this provides us with the opportunity and grace to position our minds in the path of wisdom. As the scripture says in Psalm 90:12, “teach me to number my days that I may gain a heart of understanding.”

“Childhood must pass away, and then youth, as surely as age approaches. The true wisdom is to be always seasonable, and to change with the good grace in changing circumstances, to love playthings well as a child, to lead an adventurous and honorable youth, and to settle when the time arrives, the green and smiling age is to be a good artist in life and deserve of yourself and your neighbor.”–Robert Louis Stevenson.
