"The happy man," wrote R.J. Baugham,
is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors
it may bring, but for life itself."
That kind word, that reassuring look, that
gentle way that lifts the burdens of another...
This is the stuff that life's made of.
To share the story of our life and the mercy,
grace and love which has continually been poured
out upon us by a merciful and loving Lord... What
greater honor is there?
To love, not for honors, but for the sake of love
only, ah, that is...Life itself.
