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.

A lovely day.

Well, I missed yesterday's post. Not because I was lazy or didn't want to-- mostly just because I fell asleep last night before I had the chance. I try not to say it often because it is the most boring, annoying expression, in my opinion, but I am so, so unbearably tired right now.

But, in the happiest of happy news, I was able to spend the day with my friend Renata as she labored and birthed her third baby today. Her baby girl, Zoe Elizabeth, was born late in the afternoon at home, weighing in at 9lbs, 0oz and 21" long. The birth was absolutely amazing, and I feel extraordinarily blessed to have witnessed it.

Blessings, all. Good night.
