Seasons of Love and the New Year

As we come to the close of 2009 may we all reflect how we have measured it in our lives. If we haven’t measured it in love then sadly I think we have missed the point. I would invite you to recommit your lives to loving your neighbor as yourself and loving God with all of your heart so that in 2010 you can look back and measure your life in love. Love really is all you need folks.

I would invite you to commit to loving more deeply, openly, and liberally in the new year to come. Life is short and love is the most beautiful gift we can give to one another and in fact to ourselves. You can change the world by making love a guiding force in your life and by sharing it with the everyone around you! Happy New Years! I love you!

Pax et Amor,

Seasons of Love
From the Rock Musical Rent
Written by Jonathan Larson

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?
How about love?
How about love? 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!
Remember the love!
Seasons of love!

Oh you got to got to Remember the love! remember the love,
You Measure in love know that love is a gift from up above Seasons of love.
Share love, give love spread love Measure measure you life in love.
