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, oops.

It's not Lazarus Saturday. That's next week. Oops. But it is the fifth Sunday of Lent, on which we commemorate St. Mary of Egypt. A reminder to as all, as we near the end of the fast, that through repentance and the mercy of God, even the greatest of sinners are transformed.

I had a really nice time at a kids birthday party (that was also fun for the adults!) this afternoon & evening. The boys are wiped out, and I'm glad to be home early enough, with children in bed to have some relaxing time with Matt. Good night!
