Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Burning Bright

We burn daylight
William Shakespeare
How quickly we shove back the curtain on the day
We gulp down the air
We push aside that which is in between us  and where we want to be
"We burn the daylight" as if it were a penny candle
But not today
Today, daylight will filter through our fingers
 and the air will sweep through our soul
We will arrive where we are going no later
But we will arrive there whole
and that's poetiquejustis
This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Now You See It

Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
Henry Rousseau
What you see is what you get
You choose your view
You choose your take on things
You choose what will hang on the wall of your mind
Today, paint what you see 
and make it all worth keeping
and that's poetiquejustis
The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Matthew 6:22-23

Return on Life's Investments

You cannot have a negative mind
and a positive life
Joyce Meyer

opposites do not always attract
If you want good things in your life

Do good to others
If you want joy in your heart
bring joy to others
If you want to succeed in this life
do not be afraid to help others succeed
Ann Frank said:
No one ever became poor
by giving
The more you give
the more you get
or maybe....the more you give
the less you need
because you realize you have so much already
and that's poetiquejustis
And let us not grow weary in doing good
Galatians 6:9

Are You In?

Expect problems and eat them for breakfast
Alfred Montapert

Today, You may have to crack a few eggs
                                                       before you get want you want

You may even feel like toast
 before it is all over
Just remember what the writer 
Elbert Hubbard said:
If you do not have any problems
you are out the game
because it is game on
and that's poetiquejustis
                             God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.
                                                                 James 5:12

E for Effort

Keep the faculty of effort alive in you
by a little gratuitous exercise every day.
William James 

Excercise more than the physical

Take your kindness out for a stroll

Do a few laps of listening

Make an effort to be there when you are needed

Those are things you can exercise all of your life
Making you stronger every day
And that's poetiquejustis
So let’s agree to use all our energy in getting along with each other. Help others with encouraging words; don’t drag them down by finding fault.
Romans 14:19 The Message

For Real!

Therefore trust to thy heart, and to what the world calls illusions.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Don't be afraid
 Follow your heart
Paint your world with all those things that only your heart knows are real

Illustrate your life

With the illusions of your heart

And your life will be real
And your life will be art
and that's poetiquejustis

I Corinthians 2:9 
But as it is written: 
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, 
Nor have entered into the heart of man 
The things which God has prepared
 for those who love Him".

A Fraction of the Cost

No problem can be solved
until it is reduced
to its simplest form
J P Morgan
Life is  math
Find the common denominator
Do  a fraction of the worrying
Divide the labor
Subtract the gloom
Add some peace
write down your answer
and that's poetiquejustis
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12
