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 Pebble for Your Thoughts

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.
Henry Ward Beecher
Has the road been a little rocky?
Have the seas been a little rough?
Has the going be an uphill battle?
Has this living thing been a little bit tough?
Stop taking yourself so seriously!
And give the world a grin
If you maybe tell a joke some time
You will find that you might win
The love of those around you
Who need someone to smooth the way
And your road will be smooth
And your seas will be calm
As you all  go along your way
and that's poetiquejustis
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting. 
Job 8:21

Here is Hoping

Hope is the most exciting thing
there is in life
Mandy Moore
Here is how it works
Get the idea?
I hope you do
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

You can't turn back the clock
but you can wind it up again.
Bonnie Prudden
Time for a change
Time for a new view
Time to stop letting
Time define YOU
Time for a leap
Time for a dance
Time to give you and your life
One more chance
To find the time for some  happiness
In the small moments of each day
Seek peace and pursue it
Before time flies away
and that's poetiquejustis
Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34:14

Remembering to Live...Not living on Memories

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
J L Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  Our other life

The one that we live within our dreams

Tucked away in a quiet universe where no one else can enter

What a lovely place

To visit

But if you do not return to the here and now 

At least upon occasion

That life you long for
will only stay
 within your dreams

And that's poetiquejustis

This is why it is said,
 "Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
Ephesians 5:14

You will do foolish things
but do them with enthusiasm
There are days when
You will order the fish and chips 
instead of the salad
Do it with gusto
There are times when
You will stay up all night 
reading a new novel
Don't regret a minute of it
In this life
You will love the wrong person
Wear the wrong shoes

Say the wrong thing
Do you know what that all means?
It means you are living!
and that's poetiquejustis

 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Enough already!!

The lure of quantity is the most dangerous of all
Simone Weil
Too much
Too Much
Never enough
And that's poetiquejustis 
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. 
Just as I have loved you, you should love each other
John 13:34

The Slender Thread

"The slender threads that move us forward"
Sue Bender
The whispers
The fleeting thought
The impression
These are the things that move our lives forward
These are the things that our heart reaches for
These are the things that are real 
Don't let them slip away
and that's poetiquejustis
"Be still, and know that I am God"
Psalm 46:10
