It’s Thoughtful Thursday A day to step back – reflect What does today hold?
I won’t jump right in I’ll stand at the water’s edge Dip my toe in it
Think about the day Ponder possibilities Hear my soul speaking
Embrace Thoughtfulness Listen to thoughts as water Falls with purity
Pile rocks as you pray Putting important things first Each rock is a task
Choose them carefully Tasks are opportunities Order thoughtfully
Let your thoughts reflect Then allow them to emerge As a daily plan
Pause, pray and listen Plan, and then jump in with faith Embrace Thoughtfulness.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Have a calm, thoughtful, and a purposeful Thursday. See ya tomorrow. JanBeek
Problems Creep in Usually they’re unbidden Happened all week long Blame
Gifted With Love From my Lord I did move forward Strength
Possibilities Are fueled By firm beliefs Making hard things easier Faith
One step at a time Life is easier with faith Just follow the Light!

I hope you had a good week. Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for visiting JanBeek. See ya tomorrow.
I want to walk down A new and different path – A better way – A more compassionate road – An avenue that’s better for our planet and for us.
I want the whole world to enjoy what I do: the blue skies and the clean water, the promises of a brighter tomorrow, and a sure hope for the future of our planet.
Let’s let the sun set On this troublesome time, And let’s help our world Usher in a wiser, more loving, Beautiful, sustainable tomorrow.
There never has been a time when more possibilities, when more opportunities were so obviously apparent. We don’t want to go back to what was. We WANT a “new normal.” Let’s take advantage of this time …
What’s your plan for what to do differently once we are able to emerge from this COVID-19 challenge?
