And Life Goes On…with Love

         What matters most in this life is not really what we have achieved but what we have become:  have we been more loving, more understanding, more forgiving?  Today’s gospel reminds us of the end of time.  It is something we must not be afraid of but actually anticipate with joy because eventually, we all die.  But we do not simply die by ourselves.  We die in Jesus Christ.  And to die in Christ is to live in love.  The moment we come to terms with life, then, we come to terms with death because that is when we start living in love.  Love is the only measure of life as expressed in this beautiful music from the rock opera “Rent” of 1996.  Enjoy your Sunday with a lot of love with everyone!  A lovely Sunday and week ahead of everyone!

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets
In midnights, in cups of coffee
In inches, in miles
In laughter, in strife

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life

How about love?(3x)
Measure in love
Seasons of love
Seasons of love

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Journeys to plan

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life
Of a woman or a man?

In truths that she learned
Or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned
Or the way that she died

It’s time now to sing out
Tho’ the story never ends
Let’s celebrate
Remember a year in the life of friends

Remember the love (3x)
Measure in love
Measure, measure your life in love

Seasons of love
Seasons of love
