Itís time to take a new portrait. The former portrayal has gone stale. Life has been more like an etch-a-sketch. Iíve been through some shaking up and the perfect pictures of yesterday are no longer a visual rendering of my life today. Itís time to take a new portrait. Itís time to visualize a fresh photograph, depicting the hopes today of a brighter tomorrow, showing forth the smile that says despite all Iíve been through, Iím so grateful to God just to see another day. Itís time to take a new portrait, a representation, a description to show and tell the world, hey yíall Iím still here. Scarred, but stronger, still striving, and much more secure in who I am and where Iím going. Iíve lost and Iíve gained, but yet I live and I still got love and so much more to give. Itís time to take a new portrait. Out with the jaded and faded, the worn and torn. Picture me, enduring and maturing, rising and shining, rejoicing wondrously. It's time to take a new portrait. Smile for youíve got plenty reasons. Itís a new season for you. Strike your pose with style. Looking good, now, hold still. Gotcha!
