Just some thoughts...

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

A Step Above

All life is an experiment.
The more experiments you make, the better
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Getting that feeling that the holidays are around the bend
               and the songs and the food, but most of all the stories

Some of my favorite Christmas stories come from the book
The Christmas Store
One of the stories is about a very buttoned up gentleman
who lives an very non-experimental life.
                                           By chance encounter with someone's planner
(he works in the Lost and Found department)
He finds himself prompted daily to try something new
Little things that are big stretches for him
(read it...you will like it)
I read it every year
then take pen in hand to write one new "adventure"
for each day in December
I have found
That the big changes come
when you are taking small steps along the way
So...step out
                                                 Step it up
                                             And get a step ahead

and that's poetiquejustis
A person may plan his own journey,
    but the Lord directs his steps.
