an acrostic H Hung'ring for righteousness, I am content, A Affronted by foes, reward put in place. P Peacemaker mid conflict, a child of God, P Pure in heart, I shall see Him face to face. I Inheriting the earth when meekness rules, N Needy in spirit, Jesus gives more grace. E Eased in my mourning, I comfort others. S Seeking mercy, mercy I must embrace; S Sharing salt and light, seasoning my world. based on the beatitudes of the Bible written 15 December 2015

thanks, Ashley, it holds great hope and promise straight from the Bible, restated in rhyme and acrostic.
