Just some thoughts...

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

Just Who Do You Think You Are?

The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are,
 and not who people think you are.
Goldie  Hawn
 It ain't easy being me
It would be a lot easier to be you
Because then I could do
 everything you do
But if I say the things that you say
And always feel the way you feel
Then there would never be another me
At least never one that's real 
So....I think I will just give this me thing a try
and that's poetiquejustis
 For everything created by God is good,
 and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
 1 Timothy 4:4

Grin and Share It

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.
Henry Ward Beecher

Has the road been a little rocky?

Have the seas been a little rough?

Has the going be an uphill battle?

Has this living thing been a little bit tough?

Stop taking yourself so seriously!

And give the world a grin

If you maybe tell a joke some time

You will find that you might win

The love of those around you

Who need someone to smooth the way

And your road will be smooth
And your seas will be calm
As you all  go along your way

and that's poetiquejustis

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting. 
Job 8:21

In Need Indeed

Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention,
Herbert Simon

Need to know

Need to own

Need to have

Need to be

Needing to need 
is a real need indeed
But too much of a need
may just be a little greed
If need what you need
and not anything more
then you can have what you want
For that is what needing is for 
and that's poetiquejustis

Find out how much God has given you and
 from it take what you need; 
the remainder is needed by others.
Saint Augustine

The Pitch

My pitching philosophy is simple - keep the ball way from the bat.
Satchel Paige
My living philosophy is simple
Keep the frown away from your eyes
The worry away from your mind
The  dream always in your heart

And the praise always on our lips
and that's poetiquejustis
For our boasting is this:
 the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.
2 Corinthians 1:12

Fancy that?

To give reason for fancy were to weigh the fire, and measure the wind.
John Lyly

What do you fancy?

What makes your eyes shine

And your heart sing

And your soul soar?

When you are window shopping in life

what do you fancy?
What makes you leap in to the day

And keep moving forward?

What do you fancy?

I hope the list is very long because those are the places 
where you touch the heart of life
and that's poetiquejustis
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good...
Luke 6:45

Time to kid yourself

Youth is a circumstance you  cannot do anything about
The trick is to grow up without growing old
Frank Lloyd Wright

 It really is not much of a trick, actually

All it takes is a sense of humor

Seeing life as the wonder it is
And knowing that every day of living still holds fantastic joy and surprises
 if you are only willing to say the magic words
"Abbracadabra.....I love life!"
Always be joyful.
I Thessalonians 5:16
and that's poetiquejustis

let it flow let it flow let it flow

Life rushes from within
Willa Cather

You have what it takes!

The energy

The momentum that keeps you going

The passion for life even in the face of adversity

You have that strange and wonderful possession that we call  life!

Don't keep it bottled up!

Let it flow

Let it flow
 let it flow

 and that's poetiquejustis
"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him."
John 7:38
