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.

something you should never say to a nine-months-pregnant woman:

"Hey! You kinda look like the Pillsbury dough girl!"

And, if you happen to make this horrible mistake, do *not* follow it up by poking this woman in the belly button with a pencil and say, "hoo! hoo!"

People, especially men and old women, seem to forget all their manners when addressing pregnant women. Why is this? Here's a tip: if you wouldn't like someone to say it to you when you're *not* pregnant, you should not say it to someone who *is*. Think before you speak!

That's pretty funny.

My son Soren goes around laughing to himself, putting his arms in a circle in front of him, and saying 'Fat belly. Funny. Fat baby. Mommy. Funny.'

:-) There's an esteem booster for ya.
