APRIL FIRST

A man may be as much a fool from the want of sensibility as the want of sense.
—Mrs. Jameson.

Almighty God, grant that I may be spared the allurements of deceptive happiness which leaves weary days. I ask for wisdom that I may not speak foolishly, think foolishly, or act foolishly; and may I not be detained by the foolishness of others, but pursue my work, whether it be far or near. Amen.
