Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth
Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall have their fill
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God
Blessed are they that suffer persecution, for justice' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Matthew 5:3-10 The Eight Beatitudes

I want to share this Scripture today. I want to dedicate it to the people of Japan. Somehow they will see this disaster through. Let us all join together and pray.

Please join Charlotte and Ginger and all the wonderful participates of Spiritual Sunday. I have missed some of the encouraging and thoughtful posts in the past weeks. I want to join everyone today. Blessings to all.

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog.
The Zen Japanese Garden at Canada Blooms had a Red Cross box at the entrance to collect relief money for Japan.
Your scripture quoted is so appropriate to the circumstances.
