Just some thoughts...

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

Just the thing

Step by step
the thing is done
Charles Atlas



That's the thing 
about getting

done


You have to know
what the
is
that is worth doing


And why you believe this
is meant for you to do
                                                                    

                                                                           
You have to know the


you really want to do
Because, in this life there is 
 that everyone needs to do
and that's poetiquejustis
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11

And Counting...

All the great blessings of my life 
are present in my thoughts today
Phoebe Cary



"I have too much work to do today"


and 10,000,000 people in our country are unemployed




"I have to watch my calories today and not overeat!"


In a world where 842,000,000
do not have enough to eat



"We have downsized our home"


 in a world where 
over 610,000 people are homeless every night

"I have to get up and go to church today"


In a world where there are people
dying for their faith.


All the great blessings of my life
are in my heart today
and that's poetiquejustis

Foolish not to be

You will do foolish things
but do them with enthusiasm
Colette


There are days when
You will order the fish and chips 

instead of the salad


Do it with gusto


There are times when
You will stay up all night 
reading a new novel


Don't regret a minute of it


In this life
You will love the wrong person

Wear the wrong shoes


Say the wrong thing


Do you know what that all means?

It means you are living!

and that's poetiquejustis

 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Winding Up

You can't turn back the clock
but you can wind it up again.
Bonnie Prudden


Time for a change


Time for a new view


Time to stop letting
Time define YOU

Time for a leap


Time for a dance


Time to give you and your life


One more chance


To find the time for some  happiness

In the small moments of each day


Seek peace and pursue it

Before time flies away
and that's poetiquejustis

Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34:14

Awaken

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J L Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
― 
  Our other life


The one that we live within our dreams

Tucked away in a quiet universe where no one else can enter



What a lovely place


To visit


But if you do not return to the here and now 


At least upon occasion


That life you long for
will only stay
 within your dreams


 
And that's poetiquejustis

This is why it is said,
 "Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
Ephesians 5:14

Threads

"The slender threads that move us forward"
Sue Bender



The whispers




The fleeting thought



The impression


These are the things that move our lives forward
These are the things that our heart reaches for
These are the things that are real
and that's poetiquejustis
"Be still, and know that I am God"
Psalm 46:10

Keeping Up With Yesterday

There are 7 days in the week
and 'someday' isn't one of them
Dr O'Neal



Each day has a challenge waiting for you



Each moment an opportunity waiting for you



Don't waste those times
on having to do the things
that should have already been done


Alternative:
 and that's poetiquejustis

Don’t brag about tomorrow,
    since you don’t know what the day will bring.
Proverbs 27:1
