Just some thoughts...

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

What do you want?

Turning away from the world
 and toward your own happiness 
is the path to authenticity
Sarah Ban Breathnach

I get tired of being told what to think

What to buy

What to wear

Don't you?

What would happen if we all just decided to be who we are?

If we turned off all of the noise going on in our heads

and listen to our own voice

that would be awfully nice
you could be you
and I could be me
and we could be we

I know I would like you
and that's poetiquejustis

Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from Him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.
1 John 2:15-17
