Just some thoughts...

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

Crossing Over

Well there's a bridge, and there's a river
that I must cross....
From the song: Step by Step

My dad used to always say:

"Be careful, or people are going to walk all over you!"

I understand, Dad, but with all due respect.....
maybe that's not such a bad thing...

Streets do it.....and where would people be without them?

Bridges do it and because of them, people make it to the other side

Now what it we were not afraid to be the path that leads someone else to their success

Or the bridge that gets them from here to where
they want to go?

What if we were so sure of who we are and what we believe that we would be happy to let people find their way by walking through our lives?

Thoreau said: Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked in which you can walk in love and reverence.

We all need a "bridge" to that path sometime....someone who will let us take that shortcut through their life because we are too tired or too lost to find our own way.

Today...be a bridge, and the bless the feet that walk your way
and that's poetiquejustis

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.
Proverbs 3:27
