Just some thoughts...

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

Sound Carries

It is the sound of laughter 
that I miss more than anything else.
Mary Tyler Moore

The sound of rain on the roof while you sit before a fire

The sound of someone cooking in the kitchen
when you know the meal is for you

The sound of birds when Spring has finally returned

The sound of children's voices raised in song

The sound of truth when it falls upon your ears
and tears away the lies.

When there seems to be nothing but noise and clambering
coming at you from every direction

These are the sounds that you must hold inside your heart...
and never forget 
                                                  the laughter

And that's poetiquejustis

Worry weighs us down;
    a cheerful word picks us up.
Proverbs 12:25
