GIVING LOVE AWAY
From Pastor Edward W. Frost of the First Christian Church of Salem, Illinois: 62881 One evening just before the great Broadway musical star, Mary Martin, was to go on stage in South Pacific, a note was handed to her. It was from Oscar Hammerstein, who at that moment was on his deathbed. The short note simply said: Dear Mary, A bell’s not a bell ’till you ring it. A song’s not a song ’till you sing it. Love in your heart is not put there to stay. Love isn’t love ’till you give it away. After her performance that night many people rushed backstage, crying, “Mary, what happened to you out there tonight? We never saw anything like that performance before.” Blinking back the tears, Mary then read them the note from Hammerstein. Then she said, “Tonight, I gave my love away!”
