Just some thoughts...

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

Under New Management


How little can be done under the spirit of fear
Florence Nightingale
If we are fearful
we cannot create
we cannot love
we cannot dream
we cannot really live
But when  we face our fears?
When we walk upon the clouds rather than under them

Ah...that is life under
new management
and that's poetiquejustis
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. 
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18

Flights of Fancy

I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes
Sara Teasdale
Coming and going
Life's ebbing and flowing
The rising and falling
Waking and sleeping
Giving and taking

It is all within your reach
If you only let it go
and that's poetiquejustis
  
But the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth
 and the desires for other things 
come in and choke the Word, making it unfruitful.
Mark 4:19

The Unexpected Way

It is always possible to reach a goal by a detour
Theodore Reik


Curves


Circles


Passes

Life travels do have their inconveniences

So what?


Aim your mind, your heart and your soul toward your goal

and enjoy the scenery along the unexpected way
because chances are you are right where you are supposed to be. 
and that's poetiquejustis
“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
Proverbs 16:9

Editing Life

It is never too late
in fiction or in life
to revise
Nancy Thayer

Do not like the "prose"
(or the cons!)
Edit your life
Don't like the way you are headed?
Revise your plan
Do not like the way things are turning out?
then start  right where you are
and 
 because
It is never too late
for lots of
 and that's poetiquejustis
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34:14

Doing

It all takes doing, and I do
Henry James


Someone built this



Someone wrote this



Someone believed in this 


Someone fought for this


At some point


Someone just did it


And being the someone who does something


is what it takes

And that's poetiquejustis
If you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
John 13:17

Share

People who are unhappy
have no need for anything in this world
but people capable of giving them attention
Simone Weil
The visitor who never comes
The bench that sees no old friends
The traditions that are no longer shared
 the kid whose only playmates are animated
Got a minute?
Share it.
and that's poetiquejustis
Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

The Best of It

Life is what you make it. Always was- always will be
Grandma Moses
Make the best of it
Make the most of it
Make it up as you go along
But make it the best day
The best moment
The best life
That you can
and that's poetiquejustis
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
