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 few notes.

Ambrose started smiling last week:-) However, I haven't been able to really catch one of these beauties on camera, except for this, where his eyes are closed. Also, he kind of looks like he's about to sneeze:

He went to the doctor yesterday, and weighs 8 lbs. 9 oz.

ALSO, he's getting baptized next Saturday, and CHECK OUT this baptism gown I found:

I was super excited, because, after finding out that my great-great-grandmother's baptism gown had finally given out and was no longer available for family use, I've been hunting for a non-girly gown, and growing increasingly frustrated. Apparently christening gowns for boys are out anymore. Anyway, for anyone interested, the baptism is on Saturday, January 6 at 9am at St. George's Byzantine Catholic Church in Aurora.

Ohh, Erin. I love that gown! I've never seen anything like it. I'm so happy for all of you that his baptism is coming up on the Epiphany. What a blessed and holy day it will be!
