Just some thoughts...

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

Doing Life On Purpose

The soul that has no fixed purpose in life is lost
Montaigne.
When you climb in to your car,
 you know where you are going
When you climb in to a plane, you know your destination
When you climb in to your soul each day, 
it should be no different
That is "purpose"
and that's poetiquejustis
But for this very purpose have I let you live, that I might show you My power, and that My name may be declared throughout all the earth. 
 Exodus 9:16

As It Slipped Through My Fingers

I can well understand why children love sand
Wilhelm Wittgenstein
It is the first thing in life to slip between your fingers
And the first castle you ever own
It stretches out before you beckoning you to follow
And then begs you to stretch out  and soak up its warmth
The poet Blake suggested that within its walls we can find a universe
Today, I think that is exactly what I will do
And I will let none of it slip away

 "For You said, ' I will surely prosper you and make your descendants as the sand of the sea,
which is too great to be numbered.'"
Genesis 32:12
and that's poetiquejustis

The Music of Life

Kids!  They dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music
William Stafford
The rustle of leaves
The crash of the wave
The hum of an engine
The purr of a cat
The whirr of the fan
The turn of a page
Never let the sounds of life stop being music to your ears
and that's poetiquejustis

 Let them praise His name with dancing, making melody to Him with tambourine and lyre! 
Psalm 149:3

Let Your Thoughts Take Flight

To find yourself you need the greatest possible freedom to drift
Francis Bacon
Drift time built in to every day
That time when your mind goes blank  just floats above it all
A time when you and your better less complicated self get a chance to play
and the traffic jam of thoughts
 
 Set themselves free
Drift time, anchored to your soul and connected to the universe
There is where you learn to soar
and that's poetiquejustis
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without variance, without hypocrisy.
James 3:17

Life- It is a Page Turner

Too all those who are fearlessly turning pages of their lives to see what the next Chapter will be!
 
Life happened because I turned the pages
Alberto Manguel
Life can be read line by line
It can be savored for every word and phrase and image
Or, you can simply look at the pictures as you skim through your days.

 
Today, there is a new page waiting in your story!
A page you have never read!
A story you have never been told!
Go ahead!
Turn the page
 Your life is waiting to happen!
and that's poetiquejustis

Your eyes saw my unformed body.
 All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139:16

Higher Than You Know

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings
John Muir
We all have our mountains to climb
We just take a different approach
Some see the opportunity
Some simply find peace
Others as a place to take a stand
John Muir, Scottish born  naturalist and advocate for American wilderness  said: The mountains are calling and I must go:
When your mountain calls,
may you heed the voice
and wander toward them
and that's poetiquejustis
I will lift up my eyes unto the hills
From whence comes my help.
 Psalm 121:1

What did you bring me?

What we learn from the experience depends on the philosophy
 we bring to the experience
C S Lewis
What do your "ah ha!" moments look like?

 
  "Ah HA!"
Ah  :-) ha!
 ah -haaaaa....
aaa-haa
I get it!
Ah ha....It is all in how you choose to see the moment!
and that's poetiquejustis
  "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart"
Psalm 37:4
