Just some thoughts...

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

A Thorny Subject

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; 
I am thankful that thorns have roses.
Alphonso Karr
Do you feel the ocean breeze

or feel the sand within your shoe?

Do you see the one bright  star
or is there only darkness there for you?
If you can bless both thorn and rose

You then know all a wise man knows
and that's poetiquejustis
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance
James 1:2-3
