He led forth His people with rejoicing, His chosen ones with exultation.  – Ps 105:43

Reflection.  This day is a great day for partying; be careful about excessive drinking.  Pray for those who abuse their bodies with alcohol.  There are many ways of enjoying life, ways that are good and noble.  Make this day a happy one; live it in the Lord.

Prayer.  Lord, remind me that in Your presence I will find the fullness of joy, not “in a bottle.”
