All who take refuge in You will be happy and forever shout for joy. – Ps 5:12

Reflection. Even secular writers agree that joy is a sign of great wisdom.  Here are a few examples:

The plainest sign of wisdom is a continual cheerfulness. – Michel de Montaigne, 1580

A light heart lives long.  – William Shakespeare, 1595

Cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind.  – Joseph Addison, 1712

Prayer. Holy Spirit, I take refuge in You.  Now fill me with Your heavenly peace and joy.
