Stay Healthy!


Health-think:say.jpg

 

If you are blessed with good health
You have more riches than all earth’s wealth
You have life and opportunities untold
You have a better chance of growing old

But health is more than what you eat
It is more than the quality of people you meet
It is what you think and what you say
It is what you choose to do every single day

Begin your day with prayer and gratitude
Remember health has a lot to do with attitude
Decide to be helpful; decide to walk in His will
Decide to take time occasionally to just be still

Whether you are under a cloud suffering pain
Or you are standing out in a pouring rain
You have control over your ability to smile
You can choose to exude God’s grace with style

Your mental health affects your physical being
You can choose happiness and be agreeing
Disagreeable people find their own misery
Be the kind of person who is cheerful company

To stay healthy, we must never stop looking up
We must never be stingy with our overflowing cup
Count your blessings; look at others with sympathy
Good health is contagious; Spread it gleefully!

 

I love you, dear blogging friend.

JanBeek sends cheers!

Have a healthy, joy-filled day!
See ya later.

Blessings Amidst Tragedy


Blessings > Problems

My heart is aching
In the midst of mass shootings
National Problem

Crazed shooter

My life is blessed and I am grateful,
But how can I rejoice as others cry?
How do I count my blessings
While watching innocent people die?

My heart aches for the dear ones
Who have needlessly lost loved lives.
This week was a sad time in our country –
Gone are daughters, sons, husbands, wives.

The national problem of violence,
Assault weapons in the hands of the sick,
Makes me want to write or call our leaders
And demand solutions to the issues – quick!

No way should one man in the Senate
Have the right to singularly block
A measure the House of Representatives passed
And sent to be voted on… at least to have a talk!

Gun violence is exacerbated
By the proliferation of guns of war
In the hands of unstable citizens.
It’s got to stop. Tolerate it no more!!!

Universal background checks
Have got to be a must!
Sales of weapons must be given
Only to the folks we can trust!

I’m not against a hunting rifle
And I think handguns have their place,
But magnums with rapid-fire magazines
Are not for ordinary citizens. It’s a disgrace!

My life in rural Montana
Is a sheltered one, I know.
My blessings outnumber my problems
And I live in a loving glow.

But I’m affected by the violence,
By the deaths and hate and crime.
I don’t live in a bubble.
The fears of this nation are also mine.

See ya tomorrow
(God willing)

Adopt a Daughter


545834_3580426591157_418620527_n

In 1961 I graduated from college

With a K-8 teaching credential

I had been student teaching at

A school near my university

And I was blessed to

Get a 1st grade teaching job there.

 

My room mother was Florence,

A dear lady with a darling daughter, Lorei.

Florence kept in touch

Through the years, even though

In 1962 I left that darling class

To marry my darling Bob
(It was a fairytale wedding)

And moved with him to Germany.

Lorei’s parents both died

While she was still quite young –

Not out of college yet,

So we connected again – delighted to do so –

And we became her Mom&DadBee.

Ah yes, daughters are indeed

Such a blessing

And we are blessed now

To have three!

Lorei (in CA)

Laina (in Maryland)

And our DeDeBee (in Switerland)

Are you blessed like me??

I hope so!

If not, look around – there’s a daughter who needs you out there!!

Count and share your blessings everyday!

 

BTW, I think I need to adopt Bob’s ski buddy as my #4 daughter

My Daughter #4, Nancy ❤
See ya tomorrow

Your Kindness


No Action wasted

I am feeling so blessed
on this July 24th.
So many friends have reached out
and so much of my family was there early
to celebrate this milestone 80th birthday.

No act of kindness is ever wasted…
It’s true!
And this heart of mine overflows
with gratitude for all the good wishes.

God has blessed me with
a wonderful husband for 57 1/2 years.
God has blessed me with friends
who are thoughtful, loyal, and kind.
He has blessed me with health
to enjoy all these eight decades.
No act of God’s kindness goes unnoticed!

Thank you for visiting JanBeek today,
dear WordPress blogging friends.
Your kindness is appreciated.
I am ready to soak in the sunshine
of this joyful day… with gratitude.

God bless you!

Happy 80th Celebration

Who Gives This Bride?


Tearfully and joyfully our son said, “Her mother and I do.”

The Father-Daughter dance:

The misty-eyed mom:

I’m with the bride’s other grandma & a best friend… enjoying the festivities.

Congratulations to the adorable new Mr & Mrs McSparron!

It was an amazing wedding day.

God Bless You, Kyle & Faith.

What a beautiful day!

We had an early celebration of my 80th. So fun!

All the Beekman siblings & their spouses gathered. All four couples have been married 55 years or more! A great legacy for the newlyweds!

How was your day, my friends?

See ya tomorrow.

Place of Peace


Place of Peace

From my place of Peace

I hear the whippoorwill’s song

A very good day

I have you in prayer.

You have a very good day, too, okay?

Soar with your own song!

God bless you.

What is Health?


What is Health?

Health-think:say

Health is about what you’re doing,
It is about what you’re thinking,
It is about what you say…
And what you don’t say.

.
Health is the greatest gift
From us to ourselves.
Sometimes we can control it…
But sometimes we can’t!

.
If you have your health, my friends,
Treasure it!
Guard it!
Never take it for granted.

.
Health is a state of mind
and of body.
It can  be a spiritual,
psychological state…

Thank God
Even as our bodies are decaying.

Focus on your blessings!
heart of love
See ya tomorrow!
