Photographs had been taken of
the war bride and groom, and the
happy pair was assured that
proofs would be sent to them so
that the best might be chosen for
delivery. Some days passed, and
the looked for envelope arrived.
All agog, the young couple
opened the envelope. But instead
of pictures of the bridal party
they were confronted with studies
of a two month old baby.
The bride nearly collapsed. So
did the bridegroom, when, on
looking at the back of one of the
proofs, he read: “Please state
clearly when ordering which size
you want, and how many.”

“Has God a plan for each indi

often debated quest ti. Some
groups, such as the Oxford group,
carried the belief to the extreme,
and believed that He directed even
the smallest happenings.
“Everyone,” says Mr. Goodrich,
"should work to the glory of God.
One’s talents, however small and
insignificant, are worth everything
to God and his work. All services
rank equally in the sight of God.”
Thus, God does have a plan for
every life, although it is but to
work to His glory. Each life must j
count towards God's purpose for j
the universe, that purpose being, |
“justice, peace, and brotherhood.”

on, not from lip to ear, but from
life to life. One’s actions speak
louder than entire sermons. It is
impossible to convince anyone else
of the beauty of the Christian way
of life if we ourselves do not live
it as well as preach it.
It is harder today than it has
ever been to keep faith intact.
During war, it is always easy to
forget, or to lose faith in Him.
It is necessary that each of us be
