For us God exists in the here and now, ever present before us. Herein lies true joy in that we are loved by the Lord of all creation. Today we can choose to follow him. Today we can know true joy.

The only thing that we take to heaven with us is our relationship with God. In the end that is all that matters.

So true, so true.
