Consoled-Psalm 101 (next day repost)

I sing of your love and mercy;

   You, my Lady, and my God.

I am careful to lead a life worthy of Your love —

   I follow my heart and feel safe in Your house.

I hate faithlessness

   and will not keep the fickle company.

I get angry when I hear slander and gossip,

   I will not condone it;

I won’t deal with the duplicitous

   the dishonest cannot be trusted

The wicked disturb the peace

   I cannot accompany them

The faithful and humble console me,

   I enjoy their presence.

I am happy to walk with them

   they are welcome at my table.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
