Reblog #14 – Partners

Four years ago I posted this blog, feeling grateful for my lifetime partner, dear, precious, faithful Bob Beekman.
Today I am reposting it with even greater gratitude and a few more photos for the fun of it.



Partners add dimension

To our self-focused lives.

They draw us out

To form a bigger circle.

If we are blessed indeed

With a loving partner who

Accentuates our strengths

And helps us build up

Our areas of weakness,

Then we have cause to

Celebrate with abandon!

Everyday is a gift

Of celebration with

My life-time partner,


I wish for you
the blessing of
a “Bob”
in your life!!

Have a blessed Friday
and come back
and see us again this weekend.


1 Corinthians 13:4-7Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians says love endures all things. Thank God, Lordy, Lordy, my Bob certainly has endured all things! What a blessing that he put up with me all these 60+ years!!

  1. Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing

    • Thank you for you visit and for taking time to comment. Do you have a “Bob” in your life?

      • I am sorry to say after 30 years and all the abuse I went through I filed for divorce back in May. My husband was trying to kill our oldest daughter with poison a doctor told us since he knows him as well. It is wonderful to see that in our world there are couples who loves each other

      • I’m sorry your husband ended up being so dreadful. I would wager that he wasn’t always like that. What a shame! But, I’m glad you were strong enough to free yourself from those negative bonds!

      • He has been through our marriage this is the third time over the last ten years I had a protection order against him I was done and when I realized he was trying to kill our daughter I had enough as a mom I need to protect both of my daughters he is into porn as well as drinking and drugs I thank God every day that he continues to protect us

      • Porn, drinking, and drugs combined with violent tendencies paint a deadly picture. Good for you for getting away from it, seeking protection, and relying on God for your strength!

      • It hasn’t been easy but I do know that God has been with us part of me feels dumb because I didn’t know all of this .

      • Don’t be too hard on yourself. I am one of those people who always tries to see the best in others. I might have been blind to some of his self-destruction and harmfulness to others, too.

  2. I have a Bob in my life, my dad is called Bob! ❤️

  3. Examples to us all

  4. A good partner is blessing! You are both blessed!

  5. Jan, you and Bob teach so much about being marriage partners. When I witness the two of you smiling, I feel the genuine love you have for each other.
