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

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,

Bob!

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.


Love,
JanBeek

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!!

      • 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!

      • 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!

      • 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.
