And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Matthew 5:1-11

Tire swingEvery time the grown-ups gathered, talk would inevitably turn to the old tire swing that they played on when they were kids. With the telling of their stories, the swing was embellished with greater and greater attributes. At this point, it could take you to the very rooftops of the neighborhood. Upon hearing these stories, the children would roll their eyes.

“They’re just jealous because when they were little, they didn’t have Nintendo,” said Dominic sardonically.
