Today, i weep again for another life which i thought was so fulfilling and had so much in store for it.

Heath Ledger died yesterday due to overdose of sleeping pills. According to the news, he was 28.

How could a young man, with a great future and a flourishing career, not get any good night sleep? It may be anxieties, worries, angst, or a mere sleeping disorder. It could even be just a mistaken dosage of pills.

Whatever it may be, it made me stop and reflect about a Bible verse, "[a]nd what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?" (Matt. 16:26).

And another verse. A better one for me: "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (Phil. 4:6)

A blessed day to you all.
