for it is when we can breathe out the past
that we make space for the now.

Bob & Nancy at Big Sky

It’s a good life when at 81 you still are downhill skiing and you can go with your ski buddy up to the top of Big Sky and enjoy the freshness of the Good Life. That’s where Bob & Nancy are today.

It’s not a bad life when you can look out your window at the Madison Range, Jack Creek Canyon and Fan Mountain, and breathe in the freshness of the air, and know how blessed you are!

Breathe in the fresh air
Fill it gently in your lungs
Release all tension

Breathe deeply – – – Release
Now, go out into the world
And plant a love seed

It’s a grand Tuesday!
Thanks for visiting JanBeek.
See ya tomorrow.

Morning Routine

Do you have a morning routine?

I get up, take my meds with a full glass of water, make a cup of coffee, and go up to my sanctuary.

Each morning in my sanctuary, I have a routine of quiet time, prayer, meditation, Bible Study, and devotional reading. One of my favorite devotionals is Guideposts Magazine.

Guideposts Magazine

This month’s Guideposts (Feb. 2020) is featuring upbeat stories about times in our USA history when the nation came together in unity. If you have followed my blog this week, you know UNITY is high on my list of priorities. When we are unified as a people, we can accomplish so much good!

Being unified allows us to gather strength from one another. Unity means fighting FOR one another, lifting one another up with dignity, living on the UPSIDE of life! “The Up Side” is one of my favorite features in Guideposts Magazine.

Each of those quotes are sufficient for a full day’s topic.

  • Make a Difference
  • Rinse and Repeat
  • God Grins Back
  • Optimism
  • Life’s Too Short

Look for those on my blog as this week progresses.
And have an UPSIDE DAY!

I’m off to volunteer at the Senior Center.
See ya tomorrow.
