Look up at the sky. Now, look around you at the earth. Isn’t that profound? You did not get it? Do it again! Look up at the sky, really look. Now, look around you at the earth. Did you see it?

The clouds come and go, but Heaven is always there. It is the air we breath and so much more. It is home to the sun which warms us and gives us life. We cannot live without the heaven and the earth.
