The Enjoyment of God

The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven fully to enjoy God is infinitely better than the most pleasant accomodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands or wives or children, or the company of earthly friends are but shadows; God is the substance. These are but the scattered beams; God is the sun. These are but streams; God is the ocean.

~ Jonathan Edwards

And Grandma Lou is fully enjoying God right now! I'm sorry for your loss. I prayed for you as you preached her burial service. I'm sorry I haven't even talked to you since her passing. Please know we have thought about you a lot.
