I am in need of nothing but the truth.
I sought for many things, and found despair. Now do I seek but one, for in that one is all I need. All that I sought before I needed not, and did not even want. My only need I did not recognise. But now I see that I need only truth. In that all needs are satisfied, all cravings end, all hopes are finally fulfilled and dreams are gone. Now have I everything that I could need. Now have I everything that I could want. And now at last I find myself at peace.
And for that peace, our Father, we give thanks. What we denied ourselves You have restored, and only that is what we really want.
After a very late night I was happy to have brunch with my friend at Oddballs in Chorlton, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and hash browns, washed down by a large pot to Earl Grey tea, in the sparkling sunshine. Some days are just built for bliss. And to top it all off, the drive home was a dream. Is this peace? Is this what I’ve been searching for. Today I found it. Determined to make it last.
