Just some thoughts...

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

Thoughts and Things

Only the heart knows how to find what is precious

For the past week, we have been unpacking boxes

Many of which have been in storage while we lived the metropolitan life in a city apartment

As the bubble wrap and the old newspaper 

revealed those things they had been charged with keeping safe

Little pieces of our life as a family began to fill the rooms

And we were home

To you, it would be just a dented pewter mug-

To us, it is a memory of our oldest son had his  first "big boy" sip of chocolate milk

To you, it would be a platter with a little nick in the side

To us, it that little kitchen shop we found in Palm Springs 25 years ago

Sometimes, I envy the minimalists of the world
but then again, perhaps they envy me my memories

Only you know what is precious to you

Find them

Keep them
- be they thoughts or things

 Hold on to them as long as you can
and that's poetiquejustis

Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, 
when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering.
Hebrews 10:32
