Prayerful Reading (lectio) with Photos

In a prayerful way repeat the text below several times.

Our days pass away;
our life is over in a breath.
Seventy is the sum of our years
or eighty if we are strong.
— Psalm 90

Sit with the photo and "read" it slowly

Ask yourself, What do the photo and text say to me?
What feeling or thought or word do they evoke?
What do I want to say to God through this photo and text?
What do you believe is God’s message for you today as you reflect on this photo and text?
