Just some thoughts...

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

In search of my mother's garden, I found my own
Alice Walker
I could never hope to understand 
how my mother's life garden grew
Thanks to her, my advantages and worldview
were quite different than that girl born in Brooklyn

A search for a garden of my own
A garden of thoughts
A garden of hopes
A garden of dreams
A garden of happily ever afters
And a garden of  things that were more wonderful
than I could believe
A garden  of my own
Planted with seeds from those who went before
To leave to those who will follow
 That is how a garden grows from generation to generation
and that is poetiquejustis
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11
