      Thank you Janni! That’s the challenge of writing a haiku––to try to say so much with such few words. I’m glad you enjoyed it. 😀

    Nice. Funnily enough, I’ve been writing about God today. Maybe I’ll make a post of it.

    Don’t make a plan yet
    Until you lift your heart
    To those that surround you
