Embrace Contagious Joy!


Want to be happy?
Just embrace contagious joy.
Hang with happy folks!

Find reasons to smile.
Folks will smile back at you.
Smiles are contagious!

Bee contagious!!

Psalm 144:15

“Happy are the people whose God is the LORD.”

The Good News:

God is the true source of
happiness,
strength,
hope,
and wisdom.

Those who are in His favor
will always have these things.

Just as mopey people can pull you into the doldrums,
Happy People can lift your spirits and make you smile.
Happiness is a choice… choose it!
Beeeee Contagious!
Spread JOY!
SMILE!

See ya tomorrow (God willing)

Love,

Embrace Change


Reason- change-smile.jpg

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.

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!
Hugs,
JanBeek

Embrace Multi-Tasking

I’m multi-tasking
I’m typing and I’m breathing
You can do it, too

Concentration is
Overrated, don’t you think
You can split your time

Prove that you’re clever
Say, you can walk and chew gum
All at the same time

Spread your joy with smiles
How’s happy multi-tasking
Raising your spirits?

Be a multi-tasking champ!
Thanks for visiting JanBeek
Share a smile …

See ya tomorrow

Embrace Reassurance


Bee ye reassured
God’s surely with you today
He won’t desert you

And you have a host
Of others who are with you
On each of life’s steps

So, be reassured
By the love of all your friends
Who are there for you

Thank your friends for their
Calls and their conversations
About their blessings

It reassures you
To know you are not alone
In your solitude

Capitalize it!
Make that you into a “You.”
Trust in our Savior

You are not alone
Be reassured that your prayers
Are heard and answered

Yes, be reassured
That God hears your heart’s yearnings.
You’re heard; God responds.

God hears you in prayer
So, embrace reassurance
Know that God is there

Thank for visiting JanBeek

Tell me what reassures you when you need it.
See ya tomorrow.

Don’t Worry – Bee Happy!


I think I’m crazy
This doesn’t make me happy
It makes me dizzy

Twinkle in your eye
Smile on your cheerful face
And a purpose in your heart

That makes me happy!

Kind, respectful words
Healthy, functioning body
And a carefree soul

Those make me happy!

A pup by my side
Overflowing love to give
Sweet innocent child

Those are sources of happiness!

Reciprocal love
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


Where Did It Begin?


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
by sharing your ideas
for

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 One People


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!

Cheers, my dear friends,
I love you!

What will you do to make your smile contagious today?
Have a Terrific Tuesday!

See you later.

Smile!


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.

Grow Through Temptation


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!

Christianity
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:

Galatians 5:22-23

“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.

Photo by Marta Dzedyshko on Pexels.com

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!

Tired of Normal


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!

Photo by Dom J on Pexels.com

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.
