Just some thoughts...

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

Joyful Opportunist

Opportunities multiply 
as they are seized
Sun Tzu
Looking for things to be unhappy about?
They will abound
Looking for things to take joy in
You will find them every place you look
Helen Keller said
Joy is the fire that keeps our purpose warm
and our intelligence aglow
That is an opportunity worth taking
and that's poetiquejustis
Joyful Joyful
by Henry J. Van Dyke
Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!

Happiness is not hiding

Happiness makes up in height
what it lacks in length
Robert Frost
                                 If happiness seems very far away
                          you just might need to go out and find it
Look high!
Look low!
But wherever you go
happiness is where 
YOU find it
and that's poetiquejustis
PS  Take a friend along for the ride
 
 He that handles a matter wisely shall find good: and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he.
Proverbs 16:20

Time Out

How did it get so late so soon?
 Its night before its afternoon. 
December is here before its June. 
My goodness how the time has flewn. 
How did it get so late so soon?
Dr Seuss
Time is amazing!
There never seems to be enough
and yet
Today
You have all the time in the world
to do all the things
you ever wanted to do

You can save it
or
You can throw it away
You can use it
or  lose it
Albert Einstein said that the only reason for time
 is so that everything
does not happen at once.
Fair enough
 Albert
But I can think of another reason for time
 and its time 
has come
and that's poetiquejustis

So teach us to number our days
 that we may get a heart of wisdom. 
Psalm 90:12

Take The Fall- and then...


Falling down is one thing
Getting pushed is something else
Getting thrown under the bus is yet another
It does not matter how you hit the ground
What matters is
 who you are when you stand up
that matters
And that's poetiquejustis
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, 
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40 31

A Seed for Thought

Out of difficulties
grow miracles
Jean de Bruyere
No matter where you find yourself
No matter how barren it all seems
No matter how alone you feel

Your life can grow in to a miracle
and that's poetiquejustis
 Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.
Luke 12:27
