Just some thoughts...

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

It ain't over til it's over

This looks like the end of the story
but it is not
Beatrix Potter
from Squirrel Nutkin
Pick up your feet!

Lift up your chin

It may feel like the end

But it's time to begin!

and that's  poetiquejustis
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. 
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 
2 Corinthians 5:17

In The Wind

She made herself strong by fighting with the wind
F. H. Burnett
"The Secret Garden"

The winds of time

The winds of change

The wind where caution has been thrown

The winds of life can carry you forward or hold you back

Choose your battles

and that's poetiquejustis
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. 
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
John 3:8

Who Knew?

Thank goodness my education was neglected
Beatrix Potter
No one told Ms Potter 
that she had to be trained to draw

so she produced art

No one told her that she 
did not know how to publish a book
So she did- again and again and again

Where would we be had
Ms Beatrix Potter 
listened to the voices saying

"you can't do that"

Where will you be
if you do?
I was just wondering
and that's poetiquejustis
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, 
but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do 
and think. 
Then you will learn from your own experience how His ways 
will really satisfy you.
Romans 12:2

It's A Start

An early morning walk
is a blessing for the whole day

If you start your day like this

 or like this
just make sure
you start your day

and your day does not start you!
and that's poetiquejustis
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. 
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
 even if your whole world seems upset.
St Frances De Sales

Giving and Getting

I have found that if you love life
Life will love you back
Arthur Rubenstine

Give to life

and it returns the favor

Borrow from life

and it opens it hand

but hide from life

and it will not seek you out


At least meet life half way
and that's poetiquejustis
 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. 
Matthew 5:16

There are no words

Grasp the subject
the words will follow
Cato the Elder

Learn about yourself

and you will know how to live

Learn about others

and you will know how to love

Learn how to love

and words just come naturally
and that's poetiquejustis
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

For A Number of Reasons

No problem can be solved
until it is reduced
to its simplest form
J P Morgan

Life is  math

Find the common denominator

Do  a fraction of the worrying

Divide the labor

Subtract the gloom
Add some peace
write down your answer
and that's poetiquejustis
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Three words

In three words, I can sum up
everything I have learned in life
It Goes On
Robert Frost

Scenery changes

Those we met along the way
the ones we thought would be with us forever

 pass by
 never to be seen again

Things that seemed 
so important


But what is real

What is true

What is you

stays the same
and life goes on

and that's poetiquejustis

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

Finding the right words

Fill your pages with details
Work hard to get the right word.
Robert Littell

Each day an empty page

With you the author- sage!

Fill each moment line by line

 Live!  Create! Refine!

and who knows
 what you will find!
and that's poetiquejustis
   Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might
Ecclesiastes 9:10
