Sunny flower

Blessed are  the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

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 5:3-12
