The Kingdom of Heaven is to be found in the ordinariness of everyday living; in the messiness of relationships and family life, and in those moments when we allow God to be present in our every breath.

Matthew 13:31-33, 44-46
Jesus presented another parable to the crowds: “The kingdom of heaven is like the mustard seed, which a farmer sowed in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than the garden vegetables–it becomes a tree so that the birds of the air come to live in its branches.”
Jesus offered them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until it leavened all through.”
“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field which a man found and hid again, and, rejoicing at the discovery went and sold all his possessions and bought that field.
“Or again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant’s search for fine pearls. When one pearl of great value was found, the merchant went back and sold everything else and bought it.
