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.

the look-alike test.

I found this photo of me as a baby yesterday at my parent's house:

And this picture of Ambrose is blurry...ugh...but you get the idea. So similar, in fact, that when Matt saw the picture of me, he was angry that I'd put the baby in a pink outfit...:-)

Very sweet, Erin. My baby pictures resemble my kids, but not that closely!
I recognize the blanket you had...I had the same one for my first in 1991. I think I got it from a garage sale. It was so soft with a nice silky edging. It was a favorite and got destroyed. So many good things that cannot be saved. *sigh*
