Just some thoughts...

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

Well done!

One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done
Marie Curie

On my list of things to do?

Get rid of my list of things to do!

I am replacing it with :

My "I Have Done It" list

Not just things crossed off a list

Not even a tshirt!

I mean a real list of all that I accomplish in a day

I mean seriously! 
 Take a look at all you do!
Make a list!
Well done!
and that's poetiquejustis
"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!
Matthew 25:21

Stuff you cannot make-up

Beauty is not caused. It is.
Emily Dickinson

You cannot buy it

You cannot apply it

You cannot stretch it

You cannot fetch it

Beauty either shines from within

So that it is who you are and what you have give
Or it is not there at all
and that's poetiquejustis
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 
Proverbs 31:30

Just a little brave

I am not funny. What I am is brave
Lucille Ball

You have to be brave to be funny
To see the funny side
The sunny side
You have to be brave because if you are laughing
no matter what comes you way

Then no one is going to think you need to be rescued
In fact, they may just want to come along for the ride
and that's poetiquejustis
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting. 
Job 8:21

It Simply Is

Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact
William James

There are times when it is not easy to believe in life

It is not easy to go on

To know why

or how

or if


We struggle

We press on to the summit

We persevere through the darkness

We smile and we laugh and we sing  and we are human

Until once more the light breaks through and we remember that life after all 

simply is
very much worth living
and living well
and that's poetiquejustis
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:5

Writing the Wrong

You fail only if you stop writing
Ray Bradbury

Writing is a ritual

One that cleanses

                                      As you are humbled before the every present, unyielding keys

They are insatiable

They will not move without you and within them they  have locked within them

Everything you are meant to say

It is a rite

Is it wrong?

It is writing.
and that's poetiquejustis

 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
Psalm 19:14

To Understand

I understand only because I love
Leo Tolstoy

I have come to understand

Not to judge

Not to speak

Not to convince

Not to deny

I have simply come to understand
and that's poetiquejustis
 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
John 3:17

If we walk far enough

“If we walk far enough," says Dorothy, "we shall sometime come to someplace.”
L Frank Baum. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

If we walk far eough

If we dream long enough\

If we believe strongly enough

If we fight hard enough

If we focus long enough
Then we will get to where we are meant to be 
Even if at this moment we do not know yet where that is
and that's poetiquejustis
 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
James 1:2-4
