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 new journey...

So, this upcoming Monday, Matt will begin a new job as the Assistant Communications Director of The ProLife Action League in Aurora, IL--quite a change from being an electrician. We're thrilled and a little anxious, and looking to move soon to be closer to his work.
We (ok, he, but I get included by default) will officially be professional pro-life activists, and that's awesome.
As a total side-note...this job will also mean a change in insurance, and (though not definite yet!) that will quite possibly mean that we'll be able to have a much-desired home birth--which is almost equally thrilling, for me.

Erin - I have had 6 home births and I can tell you it is an awesome experience! I will never go back to the hospital for a birth if I can possibly avoid it (my first child was born in a hospital).

Erin, that's great! I hope you both enjoy his new job and that you find a good place to live in Aurora.

And I hope that Ambrose is feeling better. :(
