Comedian Rodney Dangerfield once entered the hospital to have an operation to replace a heart valve. Knowing the serious nature of the surgery, Dangerfield joked, “If things go right, I’ll be there about a week. And if things don’t go right, I’ll be there about an hour and a half.”
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”—Psalm 90:12.
