Day eight of twelve…

copy Day 8 of 12

This image is my representation of day eight of the twelve days of Christmas.

8 Maids A-milking refers to the eight beatitudes.

I chickened out I just could not put eight women in maid’s uniforms standing around a cow so I went the symbolic route.

 Even if you are not religous the eight beatitudes sound like a beautiful creed of rightousness.  

THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS

1: “Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2: Blessed are they who mourn,

for they shall be comforted.

3: Blessed are the meek,

for they shall inherit the earth.

4: Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they shall be satisfied.

5: Blessed are the merciful,

for they shall obtain mercy.

6: Blessed are the pure of heart,

for they shall see God.

7: Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they shall be called children of God.

8: Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10

Merry Christmas,
Lonnie
