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.

I'm having a lazy day.

I woke up early on this fine spring morning not to find sunshine streaming through my bedroom window, but to find SNOW covering the ground and pouring from the sky.

I went back to bed.

My ambitions for the day include, but are not limited to, nothing.

That said, our Easter celebration was delightful. We had "thanksgiving dinner" at my in-laws at noon, and, since my grandparents are getting too old to cook (but not too old to still insist on having Easter dinner at their house), we concluded the day with pizza with my family.

Your photographic update:

father and son.

Happy easter!
You guys are so cute.

RYC: I think with the last couple of babies, a combination of a more scheduled-type feeding (rather than unrestricted/demand feeding) and not remembering to eat and drink enough, cut off my milk supply early. i never seemed to find the time to nurse enough or long enough after the first baby (whom I weaned at 12 mos) because I was always running around after someone. This time I was determined to do it right, and have been vigilant about eating/drinking enough (lots of ice cream and beer!) and also co sleeping, baby wearing and unrestricted nursing. It seems to be working to keep my periods off too, which never happened with the other pregs.
