Love is magic, pure and sweet
For it alone makes life complete.
Love turns all the commonplace
To matchless beauty, joy and grace.
And when there’s something hearts would say
Love, like magic, points the way.
We don’t’ recall the author of this beautiful little poem, but we remember using it as the basis for several sermons over the years. From September of 1976 until we retired in 2014, Gail or I, or both of us, prepared and presented a Sunday talk, either at Lake Tahoe or Carson City, or both! For awhile, we did two services, 9:30 and 11:00 down the hill in the morning and one more up in South Lake Tahoe at 6:00 PM! It was a joy, and fun! And we did it all for love! Truly magic was afoot!
