Just some thoughts...

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

I'll Grant You That

All my adult life, people have been helping me
Stephen Hawking
 I have had the privilege of reviewing grant applications 

Grant applications are more than just piles of paper, you know

These are the hopes and dreams of people
who want to help

From dancing lessons for kids who could not afford them

To transportation for seniors who were housebound

Someone said:
"Hey- I want to do something to help-
will you help me?"

And foundations kick in to gear

and committees are formed
and decisions are made

and people who want to help people
are helped

that is a good thing

and that's poetiquejustis

And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, 
truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
Matthew 10:42
