Lakota Prayer & Super Bowl


Lakota Haiku

Pray you learn to trust
Your heart and mind and senses.
Then you’ll find balance.

I pray your Sunday was a day of balance.

Balance between church and worship,
fellowship and football,
food and entertainment,
work and play.

Super Bowl

It was Super Bowl Sunday in the USA. The San Francisco 49’ers were my choice, but the Kansas City Chiefs played a fantastic game and won it fair and square. We had fun watching the game with friends and cheering each team for their good plays. It’s not about winning or losing for me… it’s about sportsmanship and skillful plays and watching good sports. It’s about sharing the day with friends – and serving them some of our favorite things.

Bob and I made a lemon meringue pie to share for dessert.
Our neighbor, Rex, smoked some beef – yum! I added a mushroom polenta, a shrimp in cream sauce (for surf and turf) and a squash casserole for the meal.
Rex’s wife, Penny, was a great help in the kitchen.
My buddy, Caroline, always makes gatherings more fun!
I was able to sit and enjoy the game, too.
Great to have friends to share the good times with!
It was a close and exciting game until the Chiefs ran away with it in the 4th quarter. Good for them! They hadn’t won it in how many years??
With the snow falling outside, it was a perfect day to cuddle up in our cozy living room and enjoy fellowship, football, and good food & wine. I wish you could have joined us!

I will end this day with that Lakota prayer at the top,
knowing God hears me and will indeed help me to
“walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.”

Thanks for dropping by JanBeek.


See ya tomorrow.

Traveling in a Downpour


As we left South Lake Tahoe this morning, there was a light rain. But the farther we toward home, the heavier the downpour. Not fun driving in that stuff. But maybe better than heavy, blowing snow creating whiteouts. Been there, done that!

We kept ourselves entertained on the trip with recollections of the fun time we’d just had with our son, Ty, and his family.

Last night we went to dinner at the Hot Pot Thai Restaurant near State Line. Our dear granddaughter, Faith, and her wonderful husband, Kyle, joined Ty, Monika, and us.

Earlier in the day, Bob joined them on the slopes at Kirkwood Ski Resort.

Ty, Kyle, Faith
Bob & Ty

They had a great time.

It was a beautiful day.

Now we’re headed to Twin Falls, Idaho for the night. Went through terrible rain, sleet, snow… I spoke too soon about blowing snow and whiteouts. Yup, they found us!

Oh my … but hopefully the worst is behind us.

God willing, I’ll see ya tomorrow. Thanks for visiting.

No Hero Stands Alone


No hero stands alone
Each stands on the shoulders
Of the ones who came before

So, to become a hero,
Decide who is worthy to emulate
And then –  copy, work hard, and endure

CoCO is a tennis star
Who took Wimbledon by storm
But she acknowledged others

The Vanessa and Serenas of this world
Opened doors for the CoCos
And now they can walk through

 

 

Needed Hero

 

She played on Center Court
And although she didn’t take all,
She made her presence known

There will be other center courts
And other heroes to emulate
Just know…
No Hero Stands Alone!  

 

Here is one of my heroes:

Bob
My Precious Husband

He’s my hero because:
. He exemplifies unconditional love
. He is a hard-worker, a faithful provider
. He’s a wonderful Dad, Grampa & GGB
. He attends church with me and loves the Lord
. He never lets me down

Who is your hero?
