Just some thoughts...

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

Warming Up To The Idea

Nothing grows in ice.
Dr. David Schwartz

Ideas need a little spark to get going

They need the heat of passion

The power of belief

And the friction of forward movement

 and that's poetiquejustis
When will you ever learn that “believing” is useless without doing what God wants you to? 
Faith that does not result in good deeds is not real faith.
James 2: 20

Brush It Off

Artists don't retire.
Julia Cameron

Every day, you are adding brushstrokes

to the canvas of your life

You are filling in the empty spots

And giving depth to your surroundings

You are the artist of your life
And to today, there is a  stoke of genius that only you can apply
and that's poetiquejustis
 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

Psalm 139:14

Here is a choice for you

Today, I choose Life.
Kevin Aucoin

We are all so concerned about choices.

We want to make our own

We want to have lots of them

We know they can define us
So we want to make the right one

While we are making all those every day choices

Let's remember to choose 

to enjoy our life
and live it!
That's always the right choice
And that's poetiquejustis 

Now, choose life
Deuteronomy 30:19

The Request Line Is Now Open

Great things are only possible 
with outrageous requests.
Thea Alexander

Ask for more

From life

From Yourself


                                        And even more from

Go ahead - ask!
The request line is always open.

Delight yourself in the LORD; 
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

One of these days....

One of these days is none of these days
English Proverb

We all have them

The list

The "one of these days" list

"I am going to travel...one of these days"

"I am going to write a book...one of these days"

"I am going to spend more time walking by the beach...one of these days

One thing about one of these days..
One of these days .....
                                      and that's poetiquejustis
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12

Everybody Loves a Lover

All mankind loves a lover.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love your life 

Love the earth

Love the moment
Every moment
Love the very air you breathe

Love being alive

 Living....what's love got to do with it?
Everything...and don't you forget it

and that's poetiquejustis 

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. 
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 
1John 4:7

Done Deal

There is nothing impossible 
to the one who will try
Alexander the Great

There are no walls higher

than the ones we make with "but, what if"

There are no bonds stronger than
the words we use to hold ourselves back

There is no more certain way to fail

Than never trying

And no lie greater than

 the excuses we give for not trying

If we put half the energy in to getting the thing done

That we do in to explaining why we cannot do it

We would get it

And that's poetiquejustis 

The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in His way
Psalm 37:23

Work It Out

Be true to your work and your word
Ben Morrow

Running a conglomerate

Or cleaning out a cupboard

Promising to love and cherish

Or promising to  meet for coffee

Today, treat every task with equal respect
Because that is how it all works
and that's poetiquejustis

But whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. 
By this we may know that we are in him:  1 John 2:5
