Beatitudes (Matthew 5: 3 – 10):
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. (satisfied)
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven

Blessed are you when you drink a cup of tea, for you will be filled with joy!
Blessed are you who are low in spirits, a good cup of tea will change your outlook.
Blessed are you when the clotted cream is gone, your attentive friend will refill the bowl.
Blessed are you too timid to ask for the sandwich spread recipe, your hostess will share the recipe.
Blessed are you when you hunger and thirst for a hot pot of tea and a scone, the kettle is whistling.
Blessed are you who always host the tea parties, return invitations are on their way.
Blessed are you who enjoy a solitary cup of tea, peace will fill your mind and strengthen your soul.
Blessed are you when you spend time with the table seating plan, laughter will reign at your table.
Blessed are you when life crashes in on you and you have nowhere to turn,
God will send His angel in the form of a friend
to pour tea and wipe your tears.
