Ps. 104:14-15

14 You make the grass grow for the cattle
and plants for people’s work
to bring forth food from the earth,

15 wine to gladden their hearts,
oil to make their faces shine,
and bread to sustain the human heart.

Ecclesiastes 9:7-10
Go, eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with a merry heart, because it is now that God favors your works. At all times let your garments be white, and spare not the perfume for your head. Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of the fleeting life that is granted you under the sun. This is your lot in life, for the toil of your labors under the sun. Anything you can turn your hand to, do with what power you have; for there will be no work, nor reason, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the nether world where you are going.
