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 Appropriate Thing to Say When a Stranger Walks into Your Bedroom in the Middle of the Night


So there I was, in the bath at 8:30 p.m., both boys asleep, Matt off to WalMart to buy an iron. I'm enjoying my soak when all of a sudden, Ambrose cries out to have his CD restarted.

Not willing to risk his crying waking Peter, I sloshed out of the bath, piled my wet hair atop my head, hastily wrapped a towel around me and went into Ambrose's room. I don't think he recognized me at first in my fresh-out-of-the-bath garb. His response:

Hey, what's you name?


The only appropriate thing to say when a stranger walks into your room in the middle of the night.
