"I'm curious, you could have ran and got away, why did you stay frozen in that one spot?"
The burglar answered, "Man, if you knew that old lady was packing an axe and two .38 revolvers, you would not have moved either!"
On a serious note, there's a tremendous power of having God's Word in your heart and mind.
So don't let age or your memory capacity stop you from memorizing and meditating God's Word.
