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'm totally counting this post for today as well as yesterday because 1)I've been going non-stop and 2)There is literally less than two hours of sleep dividing my yesterday from today, so they are getting mushed together.

So, to summarize:

~We saw the Avett Brothers last night and it. was. so. awesome. It's nice to take advantage of the small gap we have between babies right now to do things like that. Once this baby is born, finding time and opportunities for concerts is not going to be at the top of the priority list for a long while.

~To explain my two hours of sleep: We got home from the show a little after 1:30am, were in bed by 2, and then I was up at 3:45 to get ready for work. The sneaky little blessing here? The bagel shop had a new oven installed today (first time in 20 years!) that they haven't been able to get working. My boss just called to tell me to take the morning off, which I can *totally* use tomorrow.

~I feel like all I post about is how tired and weary I am, in one aspect or another. I guess I didn't realize how strong a trend the need and anticipation for rest was in my life until blogging about it. What does that say about my life?

~Lastly, but far from least, I am loving the conversations I get to have with Ambrose these days:

Ambrose: Hey, I have a great idea to go to space!
Me: Oh, really? What's your great idea?
Ambrose: To go to space! I guess I could. In the summertime when all the snow melts and it's warm outside and we could go in a helicopter together and see the moon.
Me: Ambrose, I really like that idea.
Ambrose: Yeah, me too. I guess I could.
