He has set His heart upon us

"God's desire, so manifest in the texture of the created order, is to enlarge the sphere of human joy, and we discover the marvelous truth that our joy is His joy. What greater motivation could there be for us to seek out and secure our own, our friends', our families' happiness, than to know it adds to His. Truly, God has made us His central concern, and as long as we humans liveHe will share in all our sorrows. But He also shares in all our triumphs and joys. For He has set His heart upon us." -Terryl and Fiona Givens, The God Who Weeps
