I don't think to be blessed by God means health and prosperity. I think it means that we are watched by our Creator throughout this valley of the shadow of death (And aren't we CF families living with a shadow of death?) where we fear no evil because he is there to comfort us. We are blessed, then. When the cultures come back badly, we are blessed; and when they come back clear, we are blessed. He is with us.
*To praise God: Bless the Lord oh my soul.
*As a desire for goodness: Blessed are you among women.
*For sanctification: He took bread and blessed it.
*As a gift: Children are a blessing.
I did not look these up to be an annoying know-it-all, though! I needed to make sense of things. And my studies blessed me (haha, yes).
