Beatitude Blessings #NaPoWriMo2016 #GloPoWriMo2016

Blessings be upon you!
Having the spirit of the poor,
Yours is the Kingdom of Heaven;
If you mourn, you shall be comforted,
Being meek, you shall inherit the Earth;
Your righteous hunger and thirst
Shall always be filled;
Being merciful, you shall see mercy,
With a pure heart, you shall see God;
Being a peacemaker
You shall be called God’s child;
Suffering persecution for righteousness,
You shall be heirs to God in heaven.

written in response to today’s Na/GloPoWriMo2016 prompt, and inspired by Matthew 5:1-12
