Growing Old by Stacy Vizcareondo

Raised by two awesome parents. Learned a lot. Made mistakes. Lots of regrets. Found forgiveness.


Growing old gracefully.

I am thirty-eight. I thought I was thirty-seven. We grow up to just grow old . I can't be the only one to get lost in time.
as I watch generations after me bloom into their prime,
I feel forgotten, obsolete, replaced.
Is this something only women go through.?
I look at my mother to see the winding down of her life's
​​​​​​ cycle, to wonder how I will be feeling then. If I'm lucky this despair, it shall pass. So beautiful you are, aging with grace. Not a wrinkle one I tell my mother is on her face, she smiles then remarks in time...
If only God knows
when it's my time to be in her place, I to shall smile with grace.

Thank you Jesus!

“When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice. Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

— Billy Graham
