Just some thoughts...

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

Brush Off!

When the sky is a bright canary yellow
I forget every cloud I've  ever seen!
Lyrics: Rogers and Hammerstein
Cockeyed Optimist


We all know that our skies are not always going to be
bright canary yellow


But you can pretend


You can 

you see...
 you can live beneath a cloud
 
or
You can paint your own sky today
and brush the clouds away!
and that's poetiquejustis
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24





I have never, ever focused on the negative of things. I always look at the positive.

Just Winging It

No bird soars too high
if he soars with his own wings
William Blake


Go ahead!
Soar



Flutter



Be focused



Go for it!

Just make sure you know
your wings
 Know who you are
and then you will know how to "fly"

and that's poetiquejustis
 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles
Isaiah 40:31

The Question Is....

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; 
it’s who is going to stop me.”
Ayn Rand

 Not everyone along the way
Is interested in your success

No matter


Not everyone cares about
Your goals 



No matter!

                                      Because as long as the person you see in the mirror is
                                                                  committed to your goals you will

 then there is no stopping you
so keep calm
and

and that's poetiquejustis
And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
Hebrews 12:1

The Ins and Outs of Living

How am I going to live today
in order to live
the tomorrow I am committed to?
Tony Robbins


There are no days that do not count


There are no moments of unimportance



Whether you  are working



Or dreaming


or simply being


your ship is sailing toward tomorrow


And that tomorrow will look like
Whatever you are committing to

today


And that's poetiquejustis
You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
Isaiah 26:3

Taking Stock

Nothing is worth more than this day
Goethe


What would you trade for today?


Are you selling the day short?


Or are you investing in your dreams?

Are you building a portfolio of good things for tomorrow?
or are you waiting for things to get better on their own?

Take stock of your life
Take stock of your day
Before the sun goes down

and the market called "today"

closes
and that's poetiquejustis
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," 
Hebrews 3:13

Come and Get it!

Expect problems and eat them for breakfast
Alfred Montapert


Today, You may have to crack a few eggs

                                                       before you get want you want



You may even feel like toast



 before it is all over


Just remember what the writer 
Elbert Hubbard said:


If you do not have any problems
you are out the game


So-
because it is game on
and that's poetiquejustis

                             God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.
                                                                 James 5:12

Decisions

Freedom means choosing your burden
Hephzibah Menhudin



Decide



Decide who you are


Decide



What you want to do to make the world around you a better place



Decide that you will make the world around you
 a better place


Decide

and do
and that's poetiquejustis 

You Are My Hands

Where is My life? My people are dying
This is not what I meant the world to be
Where is my love? My children are crying
So many hearts full of pain and misery
 
But I set you free so you would be a living sign
For all to see that I live,

 that I live.

I have no hands but yours, 
I live my life through you
The written Word must be alive in you  
I have no hands but yours, 
I’'ve given all to you  
You are my hands 
I live my life through you.

Going Somewhere?

Creativity is work that goes someplace
Michael Drury



Going in circles gives you exercise

But you never go anywhere



 on the other hand

gives you new vistas and exercise



Is your day an exercise in old ideas


Or are you taking the high road of creativity
Maybe it's time
 and that's poetiquejustis
And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, 
with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship....
Exodus 35:31-32
