They say a picture’s worth a thousand words,
But a smile is even greater.
It’s personal, it’s contagious,
It can melt the heart of a hater.
This is my daughter’s cheery face.
It glows and grows across the miles.
She lives in Switzerland,
But the airwaves carry her smiles.
If you see someone without a smile,
You have smiles to spare you know,
So give ’em one of yours.
It’ll set their heart aglow.
I saw you smile 😉
Ya sent me one of yours, so
Here’s one of mine!
If you want to see more smiles,
Embrace the ability you have to be
The catalyst for spreading love
I Smile at You – You smile at me!
Change happens one at a time –
One smile, one thought, one act.
Embrace change. It is your friend.
Without change, we’d die. That’s a fact!
See ya later!
Have a fabulous Sunday!
I’m typing and I’m breathing You can do it, too Concentration is Overrated, don’t you think You can split your time

Interesting conversations And faithful friendships Those Guarantee Happiness!
Sound of running stream
Fresh air and clear blue skylines Time to meditate Trouble-free Happiness!
A rushing river
With fish jumping on my line And pristine red barns Ah, THIS is Happiness!
What makes YOU happy?
Weekends with friends and an outdoor church service to look forward to… Those bring me great joy.
Share some of the things that trigger your happiness. We’d all like to hear! Have a good Friday night and Saturday. See ya tomorrow. Love, JanBeek
The wonderful video above was posted on Facebook – – – and should be viewed around the world (It says it can’t be previewed while I have it scheduled to be posted… but I hope when it actually posts, you can see this). Let’s help it go viral… and work to make it come true!
Another take on when this whole Coronavirus mess began was posted with this quote from CS Lewis “Screwtape Letters” today:
It doesn’t really help to blame Satan or China or Trump or any other place or person for this virus. We know it was not man-made… and blaming won’t make the world a better place. Only love and compassion can do that!
How will it all End?
It will take each of us individually
working for a brighter tomorrow … and each of us acting in concert with others to create the world we all want to see. Let’s stand hand in hand! Hand in hand…
Keep dreaming and working for a brighter, more compassionate world. What’s one thing you can do to help? Make this a Happy Cinco de Mayo with something positive you do today to bring a smile to a friend. What will it be? You can bring a smile to my face for by sharing your ideas how you celebrate the 5th of May today … and what you’ll do for a brighter tomorrow in the comments section below. See you later. Hugs from JanBeek
All the same stardust –
Part of this vast Pale Blue Dot. Must work together. Nationalism Must give way to unity; We’re all one people! Embrace uniqueness While celebrating sameness. Live in harmony.
Only when we know
The importance of Oneness Will we heal our earth. You’re my bro or sis; I am your sister-in-love. So, let’s get along! Let’s cooperate With God who wants only good. We’re all One People!
I want to show you
How much I love our Oneness. What can I do – huh? We’re in this salad, Each adding our own color – Creating beauty.
It would be boring
If we were all just the same. Thanks for being YOU!
Kindness and a Happy Smile – So just smile and love!
I just love your smile.
I love your uniqueness, too. Smile – and spread love!
Can’t keep us from spreading smiles. They’re MORE contagious!
Cheers, my dear friends, I love you! What will you do to make your smile contagious today? Have a Terrific Tuesday! See you later.
Let’s see a warm smile –
It will warm your heart and mine. It reflects kindness.
Kindness is in you.
This is SO worth repeating – Let your kindness out!
Like the morning sun,
Kindness can hide behind clouds. The Son overcomes!
Look for openings
Where God’s Light can shine through you. Kindness is SON RISE!
Happy SONday! SMILE!! I remembered SPRING UP and turned my clocks ahead an hour. Did you?
Time to get ready for church.
See ya later.
Does temptation lift
Its ugly head around you? Cookies and parties?
Do you look at fun
As life’s diversion from Christ? That’s not His intent!
Is built sure on nothing less Than Christ’s love and joy
He intends for us
To experience His FUN In the Spirit’s fruit:
“When the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us, love, JOY, peace. patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.
Yesterday I went
To a FUN cookie exchange Temptation abounds!
In his book,
Daily Inspirations for the Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren wrote, “God uses the opposite situation of each fruit to allow us a choice. Integrity is built by defeating the temptation…”
When I learn, “No Thanks,”
I grow (through the temptation) In spirit, not pounds!
Good luck with the fruit of self-control today! See ya later!
I’m feeling tired Pretending to be normal Can be exhausting
You know it’s more fun To let your quirkiness show And lots less tiring!
How weird can you be And still be considered sane? Who needs sanity?
May your smile be wide Normal is overrated Let craziness reign
Weird, unique, and a bit crazy at times, but wonderful, indeed!
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done?
Some folks thought the craziest thing I did was to quit my teaching job mid-year and marry a guy I hadn’t even seen in six months and take off for Germany with him. They said it wouldn’t last. That was nearly 58 years ago!
Can you recall a time when you did something that made others say, “You’re crazy?” How did it work out?
See ya tomorrow.
