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.

toads and oatmeal.

So, just now I went out to our patio to pick up some of the damage the storms had done lately...including knocking over the stroller. When I went to pick it up, out jumped this TOAD. He's pretty big, too, at least for living in an cemented-over apartment complex. Needless to say, I was caught totally by surprise and my heart is still returning to it's normal pace.

Anyway, we finished up the Face the Truth tour on Saturday, and we've settled back into our usual routine. The second part of the tour was great, though. And, while protesting in Evanston on Saturday, a pregnant girl was persuaded not to have an abortion. And that makes the whole thing worth it.

Ambrose has discovered the joy in pulling himself up on things. Particularly the dishwasher, when it's open, so he can pull all the silverware out of the basket. He has 5 teeth poking through right now. All at once. 4 on top, one on the bottom.

Oh, and he loves
