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 went to the zoo this morning.

And so did my mom, my sisters, and a few friends from their (and my former) homeschooling group. It's so beautiful outside! Ahh....I love it! I have so much more energy when the weather is nice, you know?

My mom & Ambrose.

Sari & Ambrose

Sari, staring in awe of a horse.

Alea, carefully doing her paperwork. I think they were on a scavenger hunt of some sort....

Hope, quacking at the ducks...that crazy girl. She's really growing up, and becoming so much more of a young lady than a little kid (she's 6). It makes me a little sad.

And of course, my hilarious baby. Most of the pictures I've been getting of him lately are of him with his arms outstretched for the camera as if to say, "Hey mom, I'd like to eat that."

In other news, I think my house is nearly fully recovered after two weeks of neglect (during the icon workshop). I have a few more "I'll-deal-with-this-later" stacks to take care of, but for the most part, I'm back on track...and that's always a relief.
