Poem: Recipie for Happiness


Recipe for Happiness


It's simple really, all you need
is a bed, good light, a book,
a bit of food in the cupboard,

A friend or two to share your heart with,
unafraid.
The rest has nothing to do with what is

out there. but instead what is within:
the ability to see
that God will provide

not what you want,
but what you need.

I'm sure you're right, Tom. We just manage to tell ourselves otherwise most of the time!
