LIFE ITSELF 641
"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
and 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.
