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.

I spent the better part of today dreaming of chicken enchiladas. I even sent my dear husband out to the store to get a few ingredients to make them for dinner. And so I set to work-- baking chicken, making sauce, and making a bean-and-rice filling for a vegan version for Matt.

Several hours later, the thing I have fantasized about all day is sitting atop the stove, hot and bubbly out of the oven. And here I sit, too nauseous to eat them. Sigh. First trimester, I thought we were through.

You see, you should have just used the store bought sauce. Faster, easier, less fatiguing. Anyway, they will make fabulous left-overs!
