Sounds like life, doesn’t it, Dear Reader? If all of our days were social media perfect, we would soon become bored and insensitive to them. Likewise, if all our days were forlorn and frumpy, how could our hearts and minds bear to get up in the morning?

Sitting at your right side, I will always be joyful.
Psalm 61: 11 CEV
