This got me thinking how we also need to let the old things pass away or die in us to make room for new things to grow and blossom. This could simply be an old routine or pastime which has to be given up to make time for something better. It also applies to bad habits and bad traits in us which we want to get rid of - these need to go so we can grow into the people we want to be. As a Christian I believe that Jesus promises us new life when we surrender our own lives to Him. As I let my old things or bad side in me die, I allow room for my Lord and Saviour Jesus and all the good that He promises to grow in me. Thank goodness for that! Now I can have more love, more patience, more peace, more joy, more good :)
Here is my journal page, inspired by autumn and all the thoughts above:
I did the leaves with texture paste first, then sponged Fresco Finish chalk acrylic paints all over the page. I stamped the script, then stamped the circles with acrylic which gives a lovely texture.
Sometimes its painful allowing old things to go, but its definitely worth it once the new has had time to be established.
