Just some thoughts...

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

Train Yourself!

Do not let what you can't do
interfere with what you can do
John Wooden
Can't sing an aria?

Whistle a happy tune!

Can't make a soufle?

Nothing wrong with a bowl of popcorn!

Never going to win a prize with your roses?

Love your dandelions!

It is never about what you can't do!

It is being willing to do what you CAN do

And that's poetiquejustis
I will strengthen you and help you; 
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

That Beautiful Spark

You are only given one little spark of madness
you mustn't lose it
Robin Williams

Money...it comes and goes




You cannot hang on to these

But that little flicker of genius

That spark of poetic madness that is in us all
Never, ever let that go

Because that is the spark 

That makes all else
glow with life
and that's poetiquejustis
Believe in the light while you have the light, 
so that you may become children of light.
John 12:36

Put Your Feet Down

It is not a lack of time
It is a lack of direction
Zig Ziglar
Going in too many directions

Taking on too many tasks
Try, trying, trying

Getting, getting, getting


Stand still
Better still
Take a stand
 Make time for who you are and what you want to do
and you will find you have
all the time in the world
and that's poetiquejustis
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you
Psalm 32:8

The greatest happiness is to transform one's feelings
in to actions
Madame de Stael 

Feeling sorry for the family without a home?

Action item

Worrying about the folks with no food?

 Action item

Concerned about the youth in your community?
Action item
Thomas Jefferson said:
Do you want to know who you are?
Don't ask
Actions will define you. 
and that's poetiquejustis
Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food.
If one of you says to them, "Go in peace; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
James 2:15-16

You Snooze....

The best way to make your dream come true
is to wake up

No- it is not too late
No- it is not too early
You are right on time!
So wake up and get going!
Destiny does not like to be kept waiting!

You have to discover what you do and trust it

Go ahead- fill in the blank

 in order to bring praise to God.

Adopt an idea!

Look with favor upon a bold beginning

Bring out the confetti

The Trumpets 

The horn

Bring out the chorus

An idea has been born!

Shout welcome and praises

Cast out doubt

Cast out scorn

Bring on jubiliation

An idea has been born!

And it is yours!

And that is poetiquejustis
Behold, I am doing a new thing
Isaiah 43:19

Far Far Away

Little by little one travels far
J R R Tolkein

How far you thought you would go
those summer days you cut the sky upon your swing

How far you thought you would go
when those first keys were put in to your hands

How far you thought you would go
when that first job was yours

How far you knew you had come
when you realized

that  now you are at home
and that's poetiquejustis
Everyone will sit under their own vine and under their own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken.
Micah 4:4

We will meet it when it does

What is coming will come 
and we will meet it when it does
J K Rowling
Goblet of Fire

Taking a chance
Taking it on
 fighting back

 owning it

Knowing the risk
Bringing it home
and that's poetiquejustis
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
