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 Fine, Fine Print

I am not at all the type of person you and I took me for
Jane Welsh Carlyle


Labeled by Degrees

Labeled by looks

Labeled by zip code

When you find yourself only looking at the labels

                                                   the ones you see on yourself or others-
Take the time

To read the fine print

Because that is where the 'ingredients' are
And that's poetiquejustis
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17

Warming Up To The Idea

Nothing grows in ice.
Dr. David Schwartz

Ideas need a little spark to get going

They need the heat of passion

The power of belief

And the friction of forward movement

 and that's poetiquejustis
When will you ever learn that “believing” is useless without doing what God wants you to? 
Faith that does not result in good deeds is not real faith.
James 2: 20

Brush It Off

Artists don't retire.
Julia Cameron

Every day, you are adding brushstrokes

to the canvas of your life

You are filling in the empty spots

And giving depth to your surroundings

You are the artist of your life
And to today, there is a  stoke of genius that only you can apply
and that's poetiquejustis
 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

Psalm 139:14

Here is a choice for you

Today, I choose Life.
Kevin Aucoin

We are all so concerned about choices.

We want to make our own

We want to have lots of them

We know they can define us
So we want to make the right one

While we are making all those every day choices

Let's remember to choose 

to enjoy our life
and live it!
That's always the right choice
And that's poetiquejustis 

Now, choose life
Deuteronomy 30:19

The request line is always open.

Delight yourself in the LORD; 
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

One of these days....

One of these days is none of these days
English Proverb

We all have them

The list

The "one of these days" list

"I am going to travel...one of these days"

"I am going to spend more time walking by the beach...one of these days

One thing about one of these days..
One of these days .....
                                      and that's poetiquejustis
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

Everybody Loves a Lover

All mankind loves a lover.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love your life 

Love the earth

Love the moment
Every moment
Love the very air you breathe

Love being alive

 Living....what's love got to do with it?
Everything...and don't you forget it

and that's poetiquejustis 

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. 
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 
1John 4:7
