Looking through, onto, beyond
Forward rather than back
Expectant, hopeful, letting go of regret
Squeezing every bit of joy from the now
Breathing, living, loving through the passage of time

The walls are rough, time has done what it does
But the Light is sure and steady
The window calls out through the hardness
Come to the Light
The Light warms and comforts and illuminates
Time cannot touch it.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~John 8:12
Is it just me, or is time zooming by at the speed of light? Sometimes I feel like I have stumbled into a time machine unbeknownst, and have zoomed far into the future. 🙂 Yes, it’s October, and the challenge? To try to savor each moment of each day that God has granted me here in this month. To enjoy more, to be aware more, to love more, to not miss the blessings as they come. Pray for me, and I will pray for you. Slainte, Lisa
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
