Sober Thought of the Day
“Laugh whenever you can. Keeps you from killing yourself when things are bad. That and vodka.”

–Saint Francis Xavier

The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.

The precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart.

enlightening the eye.

The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever;

all of them just.

than a heap of purest gold;
Sweeter also than syrup
or honey from the comb.
