..on health and a prayer..

..what is a man without his health?..


..be he a king or a slave...a rich man or a pauper..they are nothing once their health is gone...all the soldiers in the world to the most powerful of kings mean nothing.. they are powerless against the onslaught of ill-health..


.. an old man without his health is worse...what is pakmat but for this lingering remnants of dubious health..?


..Lord. I thanked Thee for this brief moment that Thou has bestowed upon me..
..Thou has blessed me with lasting eyesight, that I may see..
..ears that I may hear..and good health that I may be free..
..and a constantly beating heart..
..that I might savour the might of Your mercy..

Hi Pakmat, I hear where u r coming from in your part of the wood. Yes, health is wealth and I know u r quietly contented that all your children must have learn some valuable life skill & family values from u to be able to make it on their own.

Hey old coot, chin up, & be thankful that u r still able to ‘surf’ & explore the world in the comfort of your own home.

Take it easy and cherish these moments,

Tommy

..I read you, tommy, I read you even through the concrete and neon, through your airconditioned cocoons, keeping you safe from the sun and the moon,..and I cherished every second..health is indeed, wealth, tommy..for what is wealth without health..? tell and ask that to my youth, when I filled my lungs with smoke..and stomach with gross..'live for today for tomorrow we die' sounds a bit hollow now..tell and ask that to today's youth..who would willingly sell their body and soul 'just for kicks'..and you take it easy, too..cheers..

i'd agree with you pakmat. i always bear in mind about 4 things in life:

1. health
2. wealth
3. faith
4. love

it's like a stool with 4 legs. imagine if one without! :)
