Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in spirit, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12

Oh Lord,

Teach me to seek You and reveal yourself to me when I seek You.

For I cannot seek You unless You first teach me, nor find You unless You first reveal yourself to me.

Let me seek You in longing, and long for You in seeking.

Let me find You in love, and love You in finding.

a post for the sake of posting...

The thing I hate about blogging is that I so often feel like I really OUGHT to post something, and that I should, somehow, be able to post something interesting since I am, after all, taking up space on the infinite world wide web, and that I bothered to even start a blog AND even more, bothered to get people to read it. Not that there's any real obligation, or that I have anything important to say that would dramatically effect anyone's life...I just have some ridiculous, unfounded sense of duty to this thing, I guess.

Anyway, 5 weeks left:-) Had a visit with the midwife on Tuesday...she seemed to think that the baby was "too small" (*rolling eyes*) , and wanted to do an ultrasound to make sure the baby was growing OK. Had an ultrasound on Thursday--generally speaking, I'm anti-ultrasounds...but darn it all if they aren't amazing. My mom came with me and we got to see the baby sucking his (or her) thumb, and I came home with the coolest picture of my baby's profile:-) Oh, and big surprise--everything is fine. The baby's small (also, big suprise...since it's a BABY). I guess somebody's got to be in the 30th percentile...or it wouldn't exist.

Aside from that, my dad enexpectedly lost his job last week. Being out of work is stressful...and moreso when you have 7 children. Pray for him, if you think of it.
