1: Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. 2: And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:
3: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4: "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5: "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
6: "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
8: "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
10: "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11: "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12: Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Matthew Chapter 6
The Lords Prayer
9: Pray then like this: Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10: Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
11: Give us this day our daily bread;
12: And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors;
13: And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.
14: For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
15: but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
"PEASANTS OF DISTINCTION"
In our sorrows
we have always
cause for joy;
Poor ourselves ,we
bring wealth to
We own the world.
I AM A CREATION OF GOD WITH
ABSOLUTE FREEDOM OF SPIRT.
When I think of people who feel they are being held back from expressing their true feelings and deepest thoughts, I feel compassion surging from within me. I pray for the well-being of all who desire greater freedon and for their realization of the ways it can become their reality.
The way for all to realize freedom is through spiritual liberation, and prayer is the key that unlocks the door to true fullness of the soul. Free in spirit, we develop new sight and view the world in new ways. We see beyond all seeming limitation, and value ourselves and all others as creations of God who are free in spirit.
" The Spirit of the Lord is upon me....
He has sent me to proclaim release
to the captives and recovery of
sight to the blind, to let the oppressed
go free." Luke 4:18

MY DOG STANDS BY ME IN PROSPERITY AND IN POVERTY, IN
HEALTH AND IN SICKNESS. MY DOG WILL SLEEP ON THE COLD GROUND,
WHERE THE WINTRY WINDS BLOW AND THE SNOW DRIVES FIERCELY,IF
ONLY HE MAY BE NEAR MY SIDE. HE WILL KISS THE HAND THAT HAS NO
FOOD TO OFFER,HE WILL LICK THE WOUNDS AND SORES THAT COME IN
ENCOUNTERS WITH THE ROUGHNESS OF THE WORLD. HE GUARDS MY SLEEP
AS IF I WERE A PRINCE. WHEN ALL OTHER FRIENDS DESERT, HE REMAINS .
WHEN RICHES TAKE WINGS AND REPUTATION FALLS TO PIECES, HE IS AS
CONSTANT IN HIS LOVE AS THE SUN IN ITS JOURNEY THROUGH THE HEAVENS,
IF FORTUNE DRIVES ME FORTH AN OUTCAST IN THE WORLD,FRIENDLESS
AND HOMELESS,MY FAITHFUL DOG ASK NO HIGHER PRIVILEGE THAN THAT
OF ACCOMPANING ME TO GUARD AGAINST DANGER,TO FIGHT AGAINST MY
ENEMIES,AND WHEN THE LAST SCENE OF ALL COMES, AND DEATH TAKES ME
IN ITS EMBRACE AND MY BODY IS LAID AWAY IN THE COLD GROUND, NO
MATTER IF ALL OTHER FRIENDS PURSUE THIER WAY, THERE BY MY GRAVESIDE
WILL MY NOBLE DOG BE FOUND,HIS HEAD BETWEEN HIS PAWS, HIS EYES
SAD BUT OPEN IN ALERT WATCHFULNESS, FAITHFUL AND TRUE EVEN IN
Animals and our pets can be a great way to reduce our every day stresses and anxieties. It is not easy to deal with our fears and anxieties, however, spending time with animals can makes us feel better.
