The Creator's gift to us of experiencing a taste of heaven's joy can be found in the ordinariness of our daily lives. Finding God in the simple things of life draws our attention to His nearness and helps transform our perceptions of what it is to believe and have faith. . . . God's timing is always perfect when it comes to revealing Himself to us. We must be open and available in the moment and the resulting joy of heaven transforms into happiness on earth.
