Some people will want this. Some won’t. I used to volunteer with the elderly for years I will never forget a woman of whom I spent a great deal of time. She was 97 years old. Fit and still of sound mind. She’d take a puff of her cigarette and tell me, “God is cruel. Everyday I wake up is like a cruel laugh to the face. My time on this earth is over. I’ve done everything and I’m ready to go now.”
I’m serious everyday I’d see her she wished she were dead because she felt as though her life was complete and there was nothing more for her to do. She’d tell me all these wonderful stories of her life experiences. She’d tell me she lived a fulfilling life. Some people come to a point in their lives in which they feel as though they have lived a fulfilling life and they just want to go.
In my own observation those who feel unfulfilled always wish for more time to be fulfilled.
Nothing is wrong with either. Just an interesting observation.

Ageing is a symptoms of illnesses! Fasting preventing causes of illnesses and that's makes us even feeling younger and to live beyond life expectancy! And that's what even by Biblical narrated pieces of informations happens from among GOD'S people's who fast! They have lived longer, compared from whomsoever who doesn't Fast.
