Just some thoughts...

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

The Masked Man

We are all faced with a series of opportunities
brilliantly disguised as impossible situations
Chuck Swindoll
                                                               What disguise is your opportunity wearing?



A new job that you never think you will get?



A new home you think you will never afford?



A relationship you think is over?
Unmask them

and you will find opportunity smiling
and that's poetiquejustis

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit
2 Corinthians 3:18

Let us never forget that we are more important
than what we do
James Hudson Taylor



"so....what do you do?"
"So...where do you work"
"Oh...so your are with that new law firm..."
Why do we do that?
Why do we put our jobs between us and other people
and say 
 when we know it is just a job and
it is not even close to 
who we really are?
Just wondering
and that's poetiquejustis
So accept each other just as Christ has accepted you; 
then God will be glorified.
Romans 15:7

Think About It..or not

Dive in to the sea of thought
and find pearls beyond price
Moses Ibn Ezra

My husband is a great thinker


He will sit there quietly for a while
and suddenly look up and make a statement

that would throw someone far more philosophical than  I
in to a tailspin

                 He has no interest in easy answers
and he does not, as I do, simply see the internet as an outboard brain


The man is
He likes to think!
And I think that is cool
and that's poetiquejustis
For as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. 
Proverbs 23:7

Heart Song

Kind words are the music of the world
F W Farber


Kindness is the melody


That always is in harmony


Kind words the lyrics of the song


That makes the world want to sing along

and that's poetiquejustis

                                                 Sing and make melody in your heart to the Lord
                                                                  Ephesians 5:19

You Can See An Awful Lot

You can see an awful lot
by just observing
Yogi Berra

Slow down, you're moving too fast


There is so much to see


So much to hear


So much to feel


Slow down
Before life passes you by
and that's poetiquejustis
 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, 
nor to be hasty and miss the way. 
Proverbs 19:2

When it is all too beautiful for words

I find this life to be so interesting
Brittany Murphy
How can we not be amazed
Enthralled
 overwhelmed

 By the sheer magnificence

of life
Today
Give in to the beauty
and that's poetiquejustis
1 Thessalonians 5:5 For you are all children of light, children of the day

Infused and Enthused

There is a real magic in enthusiasm
Norman Vincent Peale
Enthusiasm


It is the wind in your sails


The sparkle in your eyes


The bounce in your step



The lightness in your heart

It is what makes you get going while others are making excuses


It is what keeps you going when others have stopped

Arthur Balfour said

Enthusiasm moves the world


Let it move yours!
and that's poetiquejustis
Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord 
rather than for people
Ephesians 6:7
