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.

a sweet sound.

I was fortunate enough to hear my unborn's heartbeat for the first time this morning. I might be more of a sucker for that than most other moms...but that sound just sends a shiver up my spine and tears to my eyes. 170bpm at 9 weeks, 2 days. At 10 weeks, Ambrose's heartbeat was 160 bpm, and it eventually slowed to a "boy" heartbeat around 15 weeks (like 140). Anyway, I'm just thrilled to death!
