Live The Beatitudes

Live The Beatitudes by Blanche Fingar - 2013


Believe in the sun even when it’s not shinning
God wants us to be pro- active instead of whining

Where do we perceive grace in the midst of each day?
Do we face life head on or look the other way

Let our life be guided by love, peace comes to us as a gift
If we really look around our spirit can give someone else a lift

The right word at the right time is like precious gold set in silver
In the right situation we all have an important message to deliver

Do you have pure water welling in your heart?
Or are your waters muddied right from the start

The grace of the Holy Spirit changes our heart from stone to flesh
Impure thoughts and God just do not mesh

To have a pure heart wherever you look you see God
From the bum on the street to a beautiful sunset on Cape Cod

To live the beatitudes is to become a true child of God and a peacemaker
Share your talents with the world don’t be a taker
