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

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

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
