All I can adequately say to describe how I am feeling is Blessed!
Yesterday in Israel we toured the Beatitudes site. I love the Beatitudes. I have very fond childhood memories of my Great Grandmother Rosie, aka Mimi. She read the Beatitudes every night before bed. So yesterday was not just another amazing day in Israel, it was a day of reflection, memories, tears, and abundant blessings.
THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS
“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn,
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart,
for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10
Be Blessed Today my friends!
