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 Door Ajar

Let me live in my house by the side of the road
and be a friend to man
Sam Walter Foss
Thoreau kept two chairs in his home at Walden Pond
One for himself and one for a guest
It is not the lack of furnishings that catches the mind
It is his thought to make room in his day for another 
To leave the door ajar to the footsteps of passersbys
"live by the side of the road" in your mind
and make a little room for others 

That is worth more to most people than you will ever know
And that is poetiquejustis
            The heartfelt counsel of a friend 
                                       is as sweet as perfume and incense.
                                                                     Proverbs 27:9
