Blest Are They

I was having a very hard day on Sunday.

Some days are harder than others and it seems Sunday is my worse.

I checked my email and found my sister had sent me this link to the song Blest Are They.

This song is from as the Beatitudes. The Beatitudes are from Jesus's sermon on the mount. He saw the crowd gathering, and He began to teach the people how to live.

Father Jim Wiener sang this song at our wedding and again at TBHITW's funeral.

It made me happy to listen to it again. It is a joyful song.  I hope it makes you smile. It helps to sing the refrain really loud, with a smile.

Sometimes the universe and sisters give to us just what we need, just when we need it.


  1. Jim had many wonderful attributes, i guess people are just trying to help, so, if this is any help could you post some recipes for us and photos, maybe his fav's or whatever you like, make something as often as you can, and tell us about it, so i will look forward to your posts, and thank you for sharing your innermost feelings, love and hugs, Renata

  2. I've found that when I can still sing through the sobbing, that I may just be ready to turn a corner. Keep singing, my friend.

  3. I've found that we always get what we need, but sometimes we aren't paying attention and don't realize it until much later. Glad to hear you got the uplift you craved, though, and that it came through to you clearly :-)

    Thanks for stopping by ImPossible today!

  5. Sometimes a song is all you can do..and it touches at the right time, place and with the right words. I am glad you have this one.

  6. I came on the recommendation of Charlie and have just spent half an hour or so crying through your story. You have my most heartfelt condolences but also my gratitude for sharing your feelings and experiences and thus adding to the health-giving soup in my pot.

  7. Beautiful song, beautiful words. Your sister knew just what you needed.

  8. I love this song! Beautiful images, too. Thanks for making me smile. I'm so glad that you have such a sweet sister. Love, Marguerite
