My Birthday Prayer {Art Journal Portrait}

Continuing with the lessons in Mindy Lacefield’s Sunday Mornings class, I made a second prayer portrait. This one was done today, and as it happens to be my birthday, I wrote/painted what is on my heart today.

When I was talking with my husband this morning about the passing of time, I said, “In a way it seems like yesterday when we were married.” He agreed. Then I said, “In another way, it seems like a lifetime ago.” He answered, “It was.”

Reality.

Still, I don’t feel like I always thought I would feel like at 67. I don’t know what made me think I could possibly predict what it would feel like to be 67, but I just thought it would feel, well, “old.” But, it doesn’t. It feels like I am older, wiser, more experienced in life; if the only way to arrive here is to “get older,” then, so be it.

What a great page! And wise words, too. I'm 45 and feel so much more content within myself as I have aged. You can't get it without experiencing the time :)

Love your sweet praying portrait. Time flies! I definitely prefer my older (aged 56) self! Like Tracy says, can't get there without the passage of time.
