I keep the Lord always before me, for with Him at my right hand I will never fall.  Therefore, my heart is glad and my soul rejoices.  – Ps 16:8-9

Reflection.  The willingness to receive the gift of God’s love and joy is a necessary prelude to happiness both in this world and forever in the next.  Be your own best friend.

Prayer.  Dear God, teach me how to avoid being my own worst enemy.  Teach me self-love.
