God's Cure for Old Age by Lynda Leeson

(Psa 92:12)  The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].

(Psa 92:13)  Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.

(Psa 92:14)  [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].

(Psa 92:15)  [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. [Rom. 9:14.]

Pro 15:13  A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken. [Prov. 17:22.] 

Pro 15:15  All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances]. 

Pro 15:30  The light in the eyes [of him whose heart is joyful] rejoices the hearts of others, and good news nourishes the bones.

Pro 17:22  A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. [Prov. 12:25; 15:13, 15.]
