  8. First let me congratulate you that you saw anything in that picture to write about ... that was indeed a challenge. That said, your Haiku fit perfectly so you took it to a level that, in my minds eye, would never have happened. Good job ...

    1. Julia, I cannot express how much those words mean to me. It has taken years to get the courage to share my thoughts and feelings. Thank you.

    2. You are welcome Ann and you certainly have a gift.
      It's a gift that was entrusted to you, now you have to work at it and share it.

      I was afraid to sing in public until I realized that God had given this gift not to keep to myself but to share it. It gave me courage to sing for his praise in gratitude. I lost all my fear of making mistake.

      Keep writing.
      Hugs,
      JB
