God Bless Teachers

This is not original with me.  I don’t know the source, but as a high school English teacher, it has always resonated with me.  I am passing it along (in the same format as my hard copy) in honor of all teachers.  Happy Back-to-School!

BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT,

FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

BLESSED ARE THE MEEK

BLESSED ARE THEY THAT MOURN

BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL

BLESSED ARE THEY WHO THIRST FOR JUSTICE

BLESSED ARE YOU WHEN YOU SUFFER

BE GLAD AND REJOICE FOR YOUR REWARD IS GREAT IN HEAVEN

REMEMBER WHAT I AM TELLING YOU

AND THE OTHER DISCIPLES LIKEWISE

THEN ONE OF THE PHARISEES WHO WAS PRESENT ASKED TO SEE JESUS’ LESSON PLAN AND INQUIRED OF JESUS HIS TERMINAL OBJECTIVES IN THE COGNITIVE DOMAIN

AND JESUS WEPT
