“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”
Matthew 5:3

“This is the air I breathe. This is the air I breathe. Your Holy Presence living in me

This is my daily bread.  This is my daily bread.  Your very Word spoken to me
And I, I’m desperate for you.  And I, I’m I’m lost without you”
Michael W Smith

“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 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 are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Matthew 5:4-12

“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!'”
Psalm 122:1

    Mi querida Pam, hoy me he sentido especialmente reconfortada en mi alma. Si hay un pasaje de los Evangelios que siempre, desde que tengo uso de razón, me ha impresionado son las palabras de Jesús diciendo la Bienaventuranzas. Me imagino lo que debió ser para los que le escuchaban…Todo un resumen de lo que es ser no solo un cristiano…sino también lo que se dice “una buena persona”, es el compendio de la bondad, de un estilo de vivir digno de un ser humano tan alejado de lo que a diario vemos por estos mundos.
    Mil gracias por ser como sois tanto tú como tu esposo. Sois maravillosos.

    • Querida Dolores, la escritura es un ejemplo de un consuelo en estos tiempos difíciles que vivimos! Me encanta las Bienaventuranzas que nos muestran cómo vivir la vida cristiana. Las oraciones y el amor para usted y Antonio! Pam y Butch

      Dearest Dolores, scripture is such a a comfort in these troubled times that we live in! I love the Beatitudes that show us how to live out the Christian life. Prayers and love for you and Antonio! Pam and Butch

    On many of our trips through the years I have taken pictures of lovely churches, especially little country churches. I often thought I would gather them in a book of some kind one day. But alas, that has never happened. So instead I get to enjoy your photos of so many lovely churches big and small. Thank you.

  3. I love your rainbow pic. I haven’t seen a real life rainbow in so long. I also love the pic of the pink clouds reflecting in the pond. Each picture and scripture are lovely. Oh, and that tart looks yummy.

We love your comments!
