For Karl and Karen this month marks, their second wedding anniversary. It brings bright memorlcs that glow as the candles glowed that Saturday cveaing they were married. But "looking back" is not the character of love. Love looks upl It finds Its soul in the presence of God. It finds Its body in the devotion of a man and a woman to each other, devotion enriched by faith and expressed in unselfish affection. Love looks forward, tool It faces conflctcntly the years ahead, expressing Its splrltual vitality in hope and purpose and concern for others. For Karl and Karen, as for other Christian couples, the smile in looking forward is born in looking up. Copyright t978 Keismr Adverbng Serwce, S'aSrg.
