Just some thoughts...

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

Getting from Fear to There

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.  
             Mark Twain

Some things you just have to do- even if they scare you
if you want to get where you want to go

When our daughter was a little girl and she had to fly,
we would put kisses on our fingers 
and then give them to her to put in her pocket

I did not think this meant a lot until the day she 
ran back from the jet way and said

"You forgot to put kisses in my pocket!"

We filled up her pockets with kisses
and she straightened her little back and disappeared in to the plane

I learned a big lesson that day

She was still afraid, but she did what she had to do 
to get where she needed to go

and she soared

So here!
Kisses for your pocket
Now go!
Do what you have to do
To get where you want to be
You are going to soar!
and that's poetiquejustis

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
