Loving One Another

Look Closely


Look at this closely

Windmills and advertisements

Snow covered mountains

Leaving the desert

Sign asks, “Where are you going?”

Word below: Heaven

Yes, eventually!

But don’t send me there too soon.

First, we’re headed home.

Christmas still is there

Waiting to be taken down.

Can’t it last all year?

Keep on playing!

See ya later.

Wonder Woman


I make you wonder
I may make you ask aloud
What is she up to?

Does she have a box?
Does anything fit in it?
You wonder what’s there?

It’s not a Yorkie!
I hate little yippy dogs!
Simply annoy me.

No, Downton Abbey
Is not in my box either.
Avoid those accents!

My box has people –
It has lots of messy stuff –
Lying everywhere.

Lied about accents –
I love them, but Bob does not.
Has trouble hearing!

Lied about Yorkies –
I like little dogs, not Bob!
Not the yippy ones!!

Did not lie about
People being in my box –
I love all people.

Especially those
Who teach me to cook gnocchi!
Who is in your box?

Do you have ladies
Who leap out and warm your heart?
Here’s Wonder Woman!

Wonder how she is…
Wonder how my people are
Back home in Ennis.

Wonder how YOU are…
I wonder what’s in your box…
Is it full of love?

I wonder…

Have a Wonder – ful Wednesday!
What’re you up to today?

See ya later.

I’m off to find my box!

Sunday Sunrise


My Sunday sunrise

Hints of oranges but no reds

Day breaks in shadows

God bless you this day.

Have a beautiful Sunday.

I’ll see ya later.

Beautiful Friendships


Beautiful friendships
Add quality to your life
Give colorful love

Nothing beats friendship
In the sunshine of real love
Quality time shared

Let love flow like a fountain!

Life’s real blessings:
Health, love, and long-time friendships.
They color my life.

Love is what we want
Love is what the world needs most
There’s never too much

Thanks for being a friend to JanBeek
by visiting my blog and leaving your comment.
I DO love you!
Who colors your world?

Stay Positive


Today Bob & I had the privilege of the company of two very happy, warm, genuine people. Friends like these are part of life’s treasures. We are so grateful for them.

This photo of Terry and me was taken a year ago at their place.

Last year we shared time with these friends at their place. This year they are sharing time with us here in Rancho Mirage.

When you have friends who are happy and positive, it is easy to remain cheerful – even when crazy, bizarre things are happening in the world around you.

Never give up hope.
Find happy, warm, genuine
and sincere people.

Keep your eyes open
And your mind constantly keen.
Joy and kindness reign!

Let joy come to you
In the form of caring friends.
Let them fill your heart!

Today I will be quiet on WordPress. It is my day to be present with my friends who are visiting.. I hope you have a beautiful Saturday.

I pray that you have happy,
warm, genuine friends
to share your weekend with you.
God bless you!

See you tomorrow.

Walk with Me


Walk with me today;
Enjoy the clear, fresh, warm air.
It’s good for your soul.

The sky is blue-blue;
The flowers are lovely, too.
Let’s pick up our pace.

Let’s share the sidewalk
With the Canadians here;
They, too, took a break…

… A break from freezing
Temperatures in their homeland.
This feels awfully good!

Australian neighbors
Took a break from the fires.
Let’s all pray for rain.

We are blessed, we know,
To have our health and our strength.
We live gratefully.

Back in our condo,
Angel with accordion
Shows us we belong.

How’d the owner know
This accordionist with
Fake wings would appear?

Hah! It’s a God-thing!

My sense of humor
Is alive and well today;
Must be the fresh air …

… Or the effects of
The fresh fruit and the honey
I had for breakfast!

I wish you could be
Enjoying this vacation
With Bob and me here.

Thanks for joining us.
See ya tomorrow
with more Rancho Mirage sights.

What are your plans for the rest of today?

Living in Love


My dear husband, Bob

I’m living in love;
I’m truly blessed every day.
Each day is a gift.

Yes, there are others
Living life as Hell on earth;
My heart prays for them.

Fires, floods, and war,
Make life anything but blessed;
Life may seem hopeless.

How can my listening
Help bring love into those lives
In a living hell?

Sometimes I feel
Almost guilty with my life
Being trouble-free.

I’m not complaining
About the blessings in life;
I pray them for you.

How can Australians
Facing massive destruction
Have a blessed day?

Can Iranians
Living under threat of war
Have a blessed day?

Can Puerto Ricans
Facing earthquake’s aftermath
Have a blessed day?

Can YOU in your place
Facing everyday troubles
Have a blessed day?

Sometimes life throws curves
(Like my burst appendix day) –
Yes, we all have them.

Life is not a bed
Filled with sweet smelling roses.
We must endure thorns.

Most thorns are prickly
(That’s just the nature of them).
Some are treacherous.

I pray your thorns are
Short-lived inconveniences,
Not life-threatening.

Round out the corners;
Set your feet firmly on ground
Supported by love.

May you live in love.
May you feel blessed every day.
That’s my prayer for you.

How may I support you in a specific prayer?
Tell me!

Have a blessed day.
See ya tomorrow.
