Just some thoughts...

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

And Counting...

All the great blessings of my life 
are present in my thoughts today
Phoebe Cary

"I have too much work to do today"

and 10,000,000 people in our country are unemployed

"I have to watch my calories today and not overeat!"

In a world where 842,000,000
do not have enough to eat

"We have downsized our home"

 in a world where 
over 610,000 people are homeless every night

"I have to get up and go to church today"

In a world where there are people
dying for their faith.

All the great blessings of my life
are in my heart today
and that's poetiquejustis

Foolish not to be

You will do foolish things
but do them with enthusiasm

There are days when
You will order the fish and chips 

instead of the salad

Do it with gusto

There are times when
You will stay up all night 
reading a new novel

Don't regret a minute of it

In this life
You will love the wrong person

Wear the wrong shoes

Say the wrong thing

Do you know what that all means?

It means you are living!

and that's poetiquejustis

 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Winding Up

You can't turn back the clock
but you can wind it up again.
Bonnie Prudden

Time for a change

Time for a new view

Time to stop letting
Time define YOU

Time for a leap

Time for a dance

Time to give you and your life

One more chance

To find the time for some  happiness

In the small moments of each day

Seek peace and pursue it

Before time flies away
and that's poetiquejustis

Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34:14

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J L Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  Our other life

The one that we live within our dreams

Tucked away in a quiet universe where no one else can enter

What a lovely place

To visit

But if you do not return to the here and now 

At least upon occasion

That life you long for
will only stay
 within your dreams

And that's poetiquejustis

This is why it is said,
 "Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
Ephesians 5:14

"The slender threads that move us forward"
Sue Bender

The whispers

The fleeting thought

The impression

These are the things that move our lives forward
These are the things that our heart reaches for
These are the things that are real
and that's poetiquejustis
"Be still, and know that I am God"
Psalm 46:10

Keeping Up With Yesterday

There are 7 days in the week
and 'someday' isn't one of them
Dr O'Neal

Each day has a challenge waiting for you

Each moment an opportunity waiting for you

Don't waste those times
on having to do the things
that should have already been done

 and that's poetiquejustis

Don’t brag about tomorrow,
    since you don’t know what the day will bring.
Proverbs 27:1

The most exciting thing in life

Hope is the most exciting thing
there is in life
Mandy Moore

Here is how it works

Get the idea?
I hope you do

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

Never Enough

The lure of quantity is the most dangerous of all
Simone Weil


Too much


Too Much


Never enough

And that's poetiquejustis 
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. 
Just as I have loved you, you should love each other
John 13:34
