I typed out Emily’s (and David’s???) beautiful “Constitution for a Happy Life”, in case you want to follow along. Start at the 9:01 mark in the video, where Emily gives a short intro and then reads this:

 

“When you feel you are lacking, you are blessed because you will find your abundance in Him. 

When your heart is broken, you are blessed because he will come to mend you. 

When you become content where you are, you are blessed because you will learn to see God in everything. 

When you are empty and unsatisfied, you are blessed, because He will come to fill you. 

When you offer your heart to someone in need, you are blessed because your heart will become like His. 

When you seek for the good, you are blessed because that is where you’ll find God. 

When your relationships need reconciliation, you are blessed because your Father is the giver of peace. 

When you feel like you don’t belong, you are blessed because He has already welcomed you in.”

With a little help from my family

Blessed are the frustrated for they shall find peace

Blessed are the overwhelmed for they will be given strength

Blessed are the questioning for they will find answers

Blessed are the voiceless for they shall be heard

Blessed are the anxious for they will be comforted

Blessed are the depressed. He knows your heart and will lift you up

Blessed are the doubting for they will be assured.

Blessed are the broken. They will be made better, stronger, and more whole than when they began.

Thoreau’s cabin at Walden Pond is a replica, but, yes, Walden Pond is so lovely and we can learn so much from Thoreau’s writings about that experience.

Thank you so much. My husband recently had a stroke and is numb on his left side. It has hurt my heart to see him this way though in every other way he is perfect. However, listening today I realize reason to rejoice! He has been and will continue to be blessed, (congratulated) in this process of recovery! It is helping him and me become the people God needs us to be to continue His work and our missions for Him. Thank you for helping me see this new perspective. All is well and the best IS yet to come!

” I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essentials of life to see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover I had not lived. “

Hi! Thanks again for another one! Really been enjoying these since about 2 weeks ago. I haven’t been into the B.O.M. long but I know enough about it to completely rearrange my doctrine in the Bible towards it, so it’s been a blessing to watch you’re channel and teachings 😁💙

Emily. The poem your mom gave you in your journals about teaching and stretching is something @eva Timonty could make an inspirational piece over. You might want to share it with her now that you know who she is 😁. Just a thought I had.
