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.

on losing it, in more ways than one.

Among other weird, made-up songs, lately I've been singing a rendition of "Truly Scrumptious" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to Ambrose during the day: Drooly Scrumptious.

Also, after reading a blog survey in which the question was asked, "If you only had one day to live, what would you do?", it occurred to me that several years ago, I would have answered, "Catch the next flight to Paris" or "Buy a little red sports car" or any number of other ridiculous, expensive stunts. If that were the case today, I'd have to say that I'd probably make sure all the laundry was done, make one huge grocery store trip, call alot of women to coordinate meals and childcare for the next several months, hold my baby all day, and maybe go out for a nice dinner.

It's funny how life is.
