Quote of the day

I got this from a friend pasting it on Facebook and it is really my quote for today, so I thought I'd share it. Apparently it's from Donald Miller in the book "Searching for God knows what".

"...what we really need is God. What we really need is somebody who loves us so much we don't worry about death, about our hair thinning, about other drivers pulling in front of us on the road, about whether people are poor or rich, good-looking or ugly, about whether we feel lonely... we need this; we need this so we can love other people purely and not for selfish gain, we need this so we can see everybody as equals, we need this so our relationships can be sincere, we need this so we can stop kicking ourselves around, we need this so we can lose all self-awareness and find ourselves for the first time, not by realising some dream, but by being told who we are by the only Being who has the authority to know, by which I mean the Creator."

And that sums it up for me today.
