one need

“Not relief from pain,
not relief from the weariness that follows,
not anything of that sort at all,
is my chief need.
Thou, O Lord my God, art my need.
Thy courage, Thy patience, Thy fortitude.
And very much I need a quickened gratitude
for the countless helps given every day.”
- Amy Carmichael

Everybody should have an elephant tea-pot.
And to go with it,
fresh flowers
that are positioned in close proximity to the nose,
so they can do what they do best,
which is to smell good.
Ah, what a sweet aroma,
is filling the air.
Thanks mum for visiting,
and for your thoughtfulness.
