Love Remains

All the things we chase in this lifetime

Money, fame, popularity, success

Only one thing remains, only one thing stays

Love

Love can cross mountains, love can swim oceans

Love transcends time, distance, difficulties, lifetimes

Love never ends

Love remains

c2022 Lisa Lyons

My greatest memories, hopes, futures are all about love. The people I love, and the people who love me. The God I love, and the God who loves me. I am so grateful.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…….And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13

I’m feeling sentimental this beautiful morning. Tell everyone you love that you love them. Do not wait. Give them a hug. Encourage their hearts.

Love in Christ, Lisa

Not One Forgotten

I used to want to be famous.   Someone who would sing up on a big stage, record albums every other year and then go out on tour.  I thought this was the epitome of happiness and fulfillment in life.  I went after this goal for many years, but one day, I realized that I was already happy.  I had a husband who loved me, a child who was a delight, a home.  I had a God who never forgets me or overlooks what I say.  To God, I am infinitely important.  Every so often the “man, I wish I had been a big famous singer”thought will bite again, but it passes, because I am so blessed.  Singing at my piano in my family room, with the immense and awesome audience of God, is the best. 

“Not one is missing, not one forgotten.  God the Father has his eye on each of you…”  – 1 Peter 1:1 Message

Be encouraged….to God you are a superstar.  🙂  Lisa

Success Through the Love Lens

lovelens

Different people have many different definitions for success.  To me, I always view success through a lens of love.

Success vs.  The Love Filter

Lots of money   vs.  Fulfillment in your work

Fancy stuff vs.  A kiss from your spouse in your kitchen in the evenings, cuddling on the couch in your comfy clothes

Fame/Fortune   vs.   Your husband and children thinking you’re the greatest wife/mom/singer ever

Today marks 25 years of being married to the most successful man I know; he has more love than any man could ever hold in one heart.  I love you, Ed, and I can’t wait for the next 25!  🙂 Here’s to the best of adventures together.  Love, Lisa
