Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote: "Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees, takes off his shoes..." Often, the problems of life can seem overwhelming. They demand our attention, and as we focus on them, they seem to overtake our lives. Seeing the heaven around you in an imperfect world, is the key to love, peace, and joy. Being thankful is how we train our eyes to behold Heaven.
"Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." ~ Matthew 6:10
