RZIM reposted a short article about G.K Chesterton that I love. The quote below from the close of the article grabs my heart and my imagination:
I especially want that last line to be true of my life. Please let people say that about me too....
To everyone his life affected, and continues to affect, G.K. Chesterton, with and without words, made a boisterous point about delighting in life to the fullest; life that is fullest, first and foremost, because there is someone to thank. He writes:You say grace before meals.
But I say grace before the play and the opera,
And grace before the concert and the pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
Chesterton was a man alive with the gusto of resurrection, the marvel of truth, and the thankful foresight of the coming King among us.
