Even though we have not yet reached true blessedness, we can hope for it, for we do have a Father in heaven. He is a loving Father, and we may call to him with hearts full of joy and confidence. In this certainty a wave of blessedness will come over us, and it will never leave us, even though we suffer deep anguish again and again. In this certainty we can weep and rejoice at the same time.
