Just some thoughts...

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

It got me thinking

I need to learn every day
Judi Dench

Recently, my son got me a wrist band
that tells me 
what I ate, how many
steps I walk 
and even how well I slept

 It got me thinking...
We count our calories

We take care to sleep

We may even hit the road a bit

But do we keep track each day

of what we learned?
Churchill said he was always ready to learn
though now always happy about being taught

Fair enough

and that's poetiquejustis

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, 
and the one who understands obtain guidance 
Proverbs 1:5

Stayng on Course

To be disciplined is to be free
J C Penney

To be able to catch the wind of change

because you looked ahead

To be able to follow the road ahead

because you learned the way

To arrive at your destination

because you made the journey

To do all this 
because you did what you had to do

And  you did what needed to be done

That is  a disciplined life
And that's poetiquejustis
For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; 
their corrective discipline is the way to life.
Proverbs 6:23

I wasn't really raised to be the type of person
to have doubts
John Malkovich

You cannot believe everything you hear

You cannot believe everything you read

You cannot even believe everything you see

But you certainly can 

(without a doubt)

believe in yourself
and that's poetiquejustis

Inspiration ...It is not for everyone

I refuse to make 
uninspired music
Ben Harper

It is said that inspiration is everywhere


But you have to have an aspiration

A desire to be part of the creation

A need to see a revelation

Before you can live in the place

of inspiration

At least that's been my observation
and that's poetiquejustis

and that's poetiquejustis
                    All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.
It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
                                     2 Timothy 3:16

Take it with you

If we cannot find tranquility in ourselves,
it is useless to seek it elsewhere
Francois De La Rochefoucald

 A day at the beach helps

A week in the mountain refreshes

A stroll at sunset

Greeting the dawn

all moments in time
of tranquility

can be for a moment

Or it can follow you 

wherever you go

Wordsworth said
 poetry is simply 

a recollection of tranquility

May all your tomorrows be days
when you can recall yesterday
as a day of tranquility
and that's poetiquejustis
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
John 14:27

The Latest and Greatest

Time is a dressmaker
specializing in alterations
Faith Baldwin

Time changes everything
from fences

To faces

But those things you do for others
Those things you do out of kindness
for your fellow man
over time
age well
and that's poetiquejustis
 Bear one each others burdens,
 and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Galatians 6:2

Going My Way?

The road to success
is always under construction
Lily Tomlin

Just when you get ready to hit the road to success

You start seeing signs
and you think they all mean

Not so!
It just means
you have some work ahead of you!

There are things that may slow you down

But when you are on the road to success
Everything is useful 

Like knowing when to give others the "right of way" 

Or just learning to share the road
Not every sign along the road to success means "STOP"

So, when you hit a bump

 just put your best foot forward

and enjoy those you meet along the way
Because you are all headed
in the same direction
and that's poetiquejustis

As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, 
"I will follow You wherever You go." –

Luke 9:7
