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 Possibilities

Nothing on earth is more gladdening than knowing we must roll up our sleeves
and move back the boundaries of human possibilities once more
Annie Dillard
Today is Christmas Eve- for many the eve of Hope among us
But for some- hope seems as distant as the stars
So...every Christmas Eve, our son and a few dozen of his closest friends
Go to a section of the city where the lost and the homeless live
And they turn it in to a Winter Wonderland
They bring food, and gifts, and music and hope
They roll up their sleeves and turn the darkest of corners
In to the brightest of scenes
The food is eaten
Dreams are shared
and the day comes to an end
but what perhaps stays behind
is a bit of hope
that will grow and grow and grow
breaking the boundaries of human possibilities
once more
for us all
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
