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.

Okay, you know the drill. State six weird things about yourself, choose six more victims. In my case, I'm only choosing one, because everyone else I know with a blog has already done this.

1. I have served in every office, including (but not limited to) vice president and president of, you guessed it, my 4-H club. (oh! nerdy!)

2. Despite my strong distaste for small, rodent-like creatures, I once owned and cared for a very expensive, high-maintenance angora rabbit.

3. I am a beauty school drop-out, I've never held a full-time job, and I was just two months shy of being a teenage mother.

4. I bought my wedding dress new on ebay for $50, and it fit nearly perfectly.

5. I sang in the Northern Illinois Children's Chorus from age 8 to age 18. Our director had perfect pitch--so perfect that he could instantly match a piano chord to the train whistle outside. I guess that's not really about me, but it's way more interesting than anything I can do.

6. If I ever had the time and resources, I'd go to culinary school in a heartbeat.
