Just some thoughts...

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

You Are Golden!

What we achieve inwardly 
will change outer reality

A heart filled with hope

A mind filled with peace

Those are the real victories

Achieve that

Hold on to that
And you have all you will ever need
and that's poetiquejustis
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

The world of reality has its limits
The world of imagination is boundless.
Jean Jacques Rousseau

There is reality

and then there is  reality

There are days lived between what was and what could have been

And there are days colored by what can and will be

Choose your colors 

and you choose your life

And that's poetiquejustis
I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
Genesis 9:13

Rules of the Road

Man can learn nothing except by going 
from the known to the unknown
Claude Bernard

What is holding you back?

How many times during the day 

are you looking for a workaround
just to avoid doing something 
you do not have the confidence to do?

How many roads to success have you failed to take

by telling yourself :"That's not for me "

Get out of your way!

You can make progress

Or you can make excuses

But you cannot do both
And that's poetiquejustis
                         Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.
                                                                        Proverbs 29:25

All You Can Do

Do all you can to make your dreams come true
Joel Osteen

If you  have a child

you have an obligation to help that child grow

If you have a pet
you have an obligation to keep that little guy safe

But If you have a dream

You have to do both
and that's poetiquejustis
"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.
Joel 2:28

And Yet...

And yet it moves
Galileo Galilei

I do not understand how my days pass from now until tomorrow

and yet it moves

I do not feel the time that is passing

and yet it moves

I did not feel the dream slipping away

and yet it moves

I did not see the new dreams arriving

and yet it moves
and that's poetiquejustis 
 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6

Art is never finished
only abandoned
Leonardo DaVinci

The project undone

The song never written

The book without a title

The fence not quite painted

What happened?

What got in the way?

Oh wait-
I remember

 ain't it grand?
and that's poetiquejustis
To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Two for the Road

I don't want to be a passenger in my own life
Doris Ackerman

I do  not want to see life through a window

I do not want to hear life through others ears

I do not want to feel life through another

I do not want to cry others tears

I want to feel life in my own way

Though I  may choose to share it with you

I want to pedal along in this journey of mine

But there is always room for two
and that's poetiquejustis

                                         A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, 
                                                   but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.
                                                                       Ecclesiastes 4:12

And when is there time?

And when is there time to remember
to sift
to weigh
to estimate
to total?
Tillie Olsen

Young people racing to get ahead

Older people racing to keep up

No people keeping count

of what is happening 

Rich people racing to spend

Poor people racing to earn

All people caught in the race
when are we going to learn?


let time run through your hands for a minute 

and see how it feels

Weigh your priorites

Estimate where these have a place in your life
then make your next move
and that's poetiquejustis
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19:14
