Jesus spoke to his disciples, amazing, radical words,
but the crowd followed and listened too.
I read and studied and still am struggling with the mystery of it.
Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
His disciples came to him,and he began to teach them.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek,for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful,for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart,for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers,for they will be called children of God.Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
two new houses in a formerly empty flat field
bring two new neighbors, also another next door
fewer titmouse, finches, towhees, European doves, quail at the feeders
quail rushing from orchard pruned-piles to rock rose hedge to lane
a sparrow's nest in yellow climbing rose
blue jay diving into rose, the quail's rock rose
three foot gopher snake slides from prune-pile branches to rock rose
ravens search from the sky with excellent vision
vultures wait patiently
heartbreak in Spring
My glasses are so important that when I twist them while reading in bed, head on pillow, or when I bump my head on the refrigerator door and they bend or when my riding helmet squashes them crooked and I can't see clearly cuz the progressive lenses are askew, I must hightail it to Optical to get some straightening.
I do not like not being able to see clearly.
Blurriness is my bane.
