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.

Today is the day...

that my clothes just don't fit anymore. At all. My super great husband took me to the maternity outlet store to get new work pants for tomorrow morning.

Other notes:

-I'm really tired, but I feel awesome other than that. Each time I've reached this point in pregnancy, I find myself occasionally wondering if all that nausea and crazy exhaustion was imaginary. Third time around, I'm fairly certain it was not, nor has it ever been.

-We have serious pottying success here. Prior to potty training, many wise women told me to wait until he was really ready & not push it sooner than that. Totally worth it. Now that he gets it, he just does it--no help from me required. Awesome.

--Week number two of Lent is nearing an end, and the heaviness of it is starting to set in. Does Easter really come after this? What about spring? It seems ages and ages away.

Congratulations! I can't remember if you told me you were expecting or not. When are you due? I'm due mid-October.
