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.

It's not that I meant to leave, it's just that I couldn't think anymore.

Well, the dust on this place is a bit overwhelming. It's like writing a first post all over again. Ack.

But, I'm back, nonetheless. For a time, at least--after more than a year!

I'm not sure what it was that made me decide to come back here recently. I think I was looking for a picture, a post that I had made--and I realized how much you forget when you don't write things down. And also, probably, it was winning the "Most Consecutive Days Without Blogging" award on Facebook. :)

Anyway, as we enter Lent, I am making a commitment to blog every day this season. Every. Day. And yes, I've erased and typed that again at least three times. I want to blog honestly, whether or not anyone is reading.

Blessings to anyone who stops by! We'll be seeing more of one another.

Hey, if nothing else, post some kind of recipe every day! :-) I still have dreams about that struan bread, though it's been ages since I took the time to make it.
