1.   Feeling down today?

Discouraged? Stumbling?  Falling?

Arise, start anew!

2.   Staying down is bad

Even worse than falling down

Rise up, start over!

3.   Admit your failings

Do not worry over them

Instead, confess them!

4.  Today, make your move

Ask God for His forgiveness

He gives grace and strength!

  1. Beautiful uplifting messages…they all lifted and massaged my heart…thanks for sharing!

  2. Wonderful haiku and I love #1! 🙂

    • Thank you Lauren for always gracing my blog with your visit and inspiring comments. You are truly my Haiku soul-mate 🙂

      • You’re very welcome, Cynthia! I only started writing them last October, but really enjoy the challenge of conveying a message in few words and syllables…Yours are always wonderful, too, and I love reading them. If I’m slow in visiting, just know I’ll be here soon, as life, sometimes, interrupts blogging! 🙂 xx

  3. This is so wonderful and beautiful, Cynthia! You probably know that I’m a haiku-lover (which is odd, since I’m such a talker!! but it does force me to be selective about words, a good practice in life as well, no?). Your whole blog is refreshing and gorgeous–and restful! I’ve just spent time trying to read some other blogs which are hard on the eyes and brain–so this is a lovely vacation, soothing to my soul!! Thank you, Cynthia, for your frequent visits at my place–and I wish you and your family a much-blessed Easter Week! HE lives and reigns with love and grace.
