USCCB - NAB - Psalm 119: "Psalms
1 Happy those whose way is blameless, who walk by the teaching of the LORD.
Happy those who observe God's decrees, who seek the LORD with all their heart."
Even in the midst of grief, financial instability, threats to our national security and lots, lots more, we can still be 'happy'. The way to achieve this is to stay focused on the Lord and to want to do His will above all else.
