Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

The Beatitudes

I always like reading The Beatitudes.
Hope you enjoy them too.

Matthew 5:3-12

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 gentle,
for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who have been persecuted
for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you, when men cast insults at you,
and persecute you,
and say all kinds of evil against you falsely,
on account of Me.
Rejoice, and be glad,
for your reward in heaven is great,
for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

May you have a blessed Sunday and
remember God loves you. :-)

  3. Yes, I do.

    Have you been playing in here again? Was this color pink here before? I don't think so, but I visit so many blogs and I have a major case of CRS...Can't Remember Stuff.
