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 not my anniversary.

(I'm posting this a bit late, as some computer troubles prevented it from being posted last night. :) )


But, we did celebrate today. We spontaneously decided to go out last night after realizing that our other opportunities were very limited until well after Easter. (And, as many of you know, we share our anniversary with Peter's birthday, which makes it kind of hard to make the actual day a date night.) Anyway, it was great and we ate good food and reminisced.

I can't believe we've been married for five years--what an astounding and wonderful five years it has been. And moreover, I can't believe what a different person I am now than I was then, and all the things we've both become that we never, ever expected to be. I am so blessed.
