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.

Well, I'd had hopes of writing a post about how orderly my home is, because I had such high ambitions of starting the week out peaceful and organized. The grocery shopping is done, and the fridge is cleaned out. The laundry is done, but it's not put away. Spent a good deal of time making food for the upcoming week, yet there seems to be quite a few straggling dishes around the sink still.

We DID have a nice dinner, a family walk on a reasonably nice day for February, and overall had a quiet Sunday at home. So, dishes will wait.

These pictures totally crack me up. One morning when I got home from work, they scurried around the house finding "hats" and "coats" to convince me that they were ready to go for a walk. 'Scuze the blurriness.
