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.

well, we can at least pretend it's fall...

Even though it's like, 89 degrees outside! I'm pretty sure it just feels hotter than it really is because it's October, and every Chicagoan's mental thermometer is saying "too hot!!!! tooooooo hot!!!!!!! It should be 60!!!!!!".
But, in spite of the record-high temps for this time of year, we went to the pumpkin patch this past week with my mom and sisters.

The Aunties:

Emma, with her pumpkin.
Hope, still in search of the perfect find.

And Sari on the hayride.

And my super-cute sister Kyla. Ambrose loves her. So do I. I seem to be missing one sister, though. Oops.

I know! Please don't tell her. I did get a picture of her, but it's pretty bad. She was just too busy playing for me to catch her, I guess.

If we use our imagination, you will notice that Sari bears a very strong resembalance to Alea without her glasses.

Lets all pretend that Sari is Alea just 6 years ago!
