Just some thoughts...

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

Moving Back the Boundaries

Nothing on earth is more gladdening than knowing we must roll up our sleeves
and move back the boundaries of human possibilities once more
Annie Dillard

Today is Christmas Eve- for many the eve of Hope among us

But for some- hope seems as distant as the stars
So...every Christmas Eve, our son and a few dozen of his closest friends
Go to a section of the city where the lost and the homeless live

And they turn it in to a Winter Wonderland

They bring food, and gifts, and music and hope

They roll up their sleeves and turn the darkest of corners

In to the brightest of scenes
The food is eaten
Dreams are shared

but what perhaps stays behind
is a bit of hope

that will grow and grow and grow
breaking the boundaries of human possibilities
once more
for us all

and that's poetiquejustis

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, 
so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.  
Romans 15:13
