Just some thoughts...

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

You Have Arrived!

Your big opportunity
may be right where you are 
Napoleon Hill





To find  out that

and you are already there!
 and that's poetiquejustis
"So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you."
Deuteronomy 3:16

Got the time?

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
You have all the time in the world
to do all the things
you ever wanted to do

You can save it

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

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

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 are

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

All The Answers

Computers are useless
they can only give answers
Pablo Picasso

Remember that great old movie Desk Set
with Tracy and Hepburn?
She runs the reference library at a network

with a team of very human women

and he wants to replace them all

with a hunk of metal and diodes

His invention has all the answers
but when it blows a gasket

 her team....has the hairpin

Because sometimes 
having all the answers

is not enough
to make life work

and that's poetiquejustis
“Come now, let us reason together", says the LORD
Isaiah 1:18

What's On Your Agenda?

The secret of your success
is determined by your daily agenda
John Maxwell 

What you do

and what you do not do

What you care enough about

to get done

and what you leave 
That is the mosaic of your life
The dots that you connect
The tapestry that you weave
It is who you are making yourself
and that's poetiquejustis

For it is God who works in you to will and to act 
in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Philippians 2:13

Welcome Home

I dwell in possibility
Emily Dickinson

The door to new adventure
is always open

The windows are flung wide
to opportunity 

The staircase rises to the stars

I dwell in possibility

where you live 

really does matter
and that's poetiquejustis

One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
Psalm 27:4

Keep a lid on it

To me, if life boils down to one thing, 
it's movement. 
To live is to keep moving.
Jerry Seinfeld

Filling up your life with stuff
is not enough
If you want to get things moving
in life

You have to turn up the heat

Not too much

Just enough to get things moving
and that's poetiquejustis
For in Him we live and move and have our being.
Acts 17:28
