Enjoying God in All Persons and Things

It seems that Wednesdays have become Augustine's days on my blog! So here it goes, here's Augustine on the enjoyment of God in all other persons and things. 

"But when you have joy of a man in God, it is God rather than man that you enjoy. For you enjoy Him by whom you are made happy, and you rejoice to have come to Him in whose presence you place your hope of joy...But if you cling to [any other thing], and rest in it, finding your happiness complete in it, then you may be truly and properly said to enjoy it. And this we must never do except in the case of the Blessed Trinity, who is teh Supreme and Unchangeable God" (On Christian Doctrine, Book 1, Chapter 33).
