i hope i get old like Moses and John Wesley

Although Moses was 120 years old when he died, his eye was not dim, nor his vigor abated [Deut 34.7].

Today I entered on my eighty-second year and found myself just as strong to labor and as fit for any exercise of body or mind as I was forty years ago. I do not impute this to second causes, but to the Sovereign Lord of all. It is he who bids the sun of life stand still, so long as it pleases him. I am as strong at eighty-one as I was at twenty-one; but abundantly more healthy, being a stranger to the headache, toothache, and other bodily disorders that attended me in my youth. We can only say, "The Lord reigneth!" While we live, let us live to him [John Wesley].
