Just some thoughts...

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

The Spark That Never Dies

Our brightest blazes of gladness
are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks
Samuel Johnson

Seeing your grandson's first paper airplane take flight
and remembering the day his dad's did the same

Watching the midnight moon shine through your kitchen window

and being grateful for a home

Finding a plant that was wilted and sad

and being encouraged that it has found the will to live

Having someone who wants to hold your hand

And having someone's hand that you want to hold

Those are the brightest blazes of gladness
in our lives
And those are the sparks that never die
And that's poetiquejustis
Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens
James 1:17
