Be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart...Psalms 31: 24

It is not easy to do a portrait of oneself that looks natural and not posed.. Someday I might get it right:) This will be the last Sunday, that I will be 68 as I will have a birthday in a few days and I wanted to remember this day in a self portrait.

    Thank you all for the comments and for your birthday greetings...I won't turn 69
    until Wednesday the will still have a few days yet to enjoy being 68...I still remember when my mother turned 68 and she thought she was getting old at that age. I reminded
    her that she wasn't 70 yet and she still had two good years left until then...She lived to be 102 before she passed away... How time flies!
