What Remains

1089

Sometimes what remains after time is not what was.  Actually, that is true almost all of the time.  But what remains can be beautiful and the changes usually produce a tempered strength and new perspective.

The woman who has gone through years of heartaches and trials…her face has changed but there is wisdom and steadiness, true beauty in her eyes.  She is beautiful.

The man who has faced day after day of work, the routine day in and day out, yet he perseveres in his great love for his family, his need to take care of them.  The years have turned him from boy to man, and he is beautiful.

The home that used to be glossy new, but has faced rain, wind, children’s pounding toys, floods, and time.  The old house now sits with graceful wisdom, having gone through family after family, holding their dreams, their hard times, their togetherness.  It is beautiful.

Time will change all things, but it can be beautiful.   “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed, changed,  into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” ~2Corinthians 3:18

You are beautiful; shine today for God.  You are made in His image.  Blessings, Lisa
