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.

the things occupying my time...

So, it seems that I'm sewing my life away these days. I've been enjoying it, honestly, since I find sewing really relaxing...but whew! After making and selling the adult mei tais, I've since taken on the task of making these mini mei tais (for baby dolls--I think they're awfully darn cute, if I'm allowed to say so:-) ).

Turns out they're really, really popular, especially among moms who have their own mei tais, and I've taken orders for about 10 of them.

As a little birthday present for my favorite 5 year-old and 3 year-old sisters, I made these little doll diapers. I spent an afternoon over there a few weeks back making real diapers for Ambrose, and they kept sheepishly asking if they could play with them. So, hopefully they'll enjoy these.

And a bonus picture, while we're not too far off the topic of babywearing:

Sometimes, riding around on mom's back for the afternoon while she vacuums and does dishes is just sooo relaxing that you can't help but fall asleep. And sometimes, you fall asleep so deeply that you don't even flinch when she practically drops you onto the bed from her back.
I just love this picture.
