Just some thoughts...

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

Who Knew?

Thank goodness my education was neglected
Beatrix Potter
No one told Ms Potter 
that she had to be trained to draw



so she produced art



No one told her that she 
did not know how to publish a book
So she did- again and again and again

Where would we be had
Ms Beatrix Potter 
listened to the voices saying

"you can't do that"

Where will you be
if you do?
I was just wondering
and that's poetiquejustis
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, 
but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do 
and think. 
Then you will learn from your own experience how His ways 
will really satisfy you.
Romans 12:2

It's A Start

An early morning walk
is a blessing for the whole day
Thoreau

If you start your day like this

 or like this
just make sure
you start your day

and your day does not start you!
and that's poetiquejustis
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. 
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
 even if your whole world seems upset.
St Frances De Sales

Giving and Getting

I have found that if you love life
Life will love you back
Arthur Rubenstine

Give to life

and it returns the favor



Borrow from life


and it opens it hand


but hide from life

and it will not seek you out

Today

At least meet life half way
and that's poetiquejustis
 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. 
Matthew 5:16

There are no words

Grasp the subject
the words will follow
Cato the Elder

Learn about yourself


and you will know how to live



Learn about others

and you will know how to love


Learn how to love

 
and words just come naturally
and that's poetiquejustis
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

For A Number of Reasons

No problem can be solved
until it is reduced
to its simplest form
J P Morgan

Life is  math



Find the common denominator




Do  a fraction of the worrying



Divide the labor


Subtract the gloom
Add some peace
write down your answer
and that's poetiquejustis
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Three words

In three words, I can sum up
everything I have learned in life
It Goes On
Robert Frost


Scenery changes



Those we met along the way
the ones we thought would be with us forever


 pass by
 never to be seen again

Things that seemed 
so important

fade



But what is real


What is true


What is you

stays the same
and life goes on


and that's poetiquejustis

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

Finding the right words

Fill your pages with details
Work hard to get the right word.
Robert Littell


Each day an empty page

With you the author- sage!

Fill each moment line by line

 Live!  Create! Refine!

and who knows
 what you will find!
and that's poetiquejustis
   Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might
Ecclesiastes 9:10
