Relate: Rules are made to be broken, right? Well, today I am going to break a few of mine. You might have noticed that there is no picture at the top of this post. That’s just the start. There also will be no “React” and “Respond” sections to this post either. Instead, this post is going to simply do what the Psalmist said. It’s time to sing.
