Eight blessings

Blessed are you who don't have it:
        I give you my whole world.


Blessed are you who are broken:
        I hold you close.


Blessed you who are gentle:
        my love in you will conquer the world.


Blessed are you who yearn deeply for more:
        here it is.


Blessed are you who practice mercy:
        my mercy flows through you.


Blessed are you who love no matter what:
        you will always know my presence.


Blessed are you who do not pass hurt on to others:
        beloved child, that's when you are most like me.


Blessed are you whom the world scorns:
        I am right there with you.



(see Matthew 5.3-10)
