Blogging about my experiences

Welcome to my blog! Here you can read about my life’s journey thus far and I hope you stick around as we continue the journey together. I love God and I chronicle my relationship with God and man. I write on the lessons I have learned.

Instinctively I knew where I was born was not big enough to contain me so I was determined to come to America. As a girl I would always look at the heavens and dream big dreams … I emigrated to this country when I was very young, leaving family and friends behind.  I have had many a hard lesson along the way and have learned from them. I write about being an immigrant, how I assimilated in this new world, made it my own and created a new life. 

I credit all of it to God as He has brought me through many many things. I pen some of my parenting styles in raising my children to be productive and responsible members of society, information on health and lifestyle, a little cooking and just general things that peak my interest. 

Sharing knowledge and learning from others

I share what is placed on my heart to record. I love photography and will be sharing my photos here as well. I share general knowledge that I hope will enrich your lives while I learn from each of you also.

Learning never ends, it only can if you decide to stop, but if you are surrounded by like-minded persons and you open yourself to new ideas and possibilities you will always glean new knowledge.

Our perspectives and our faith helps to tell us where we stand.

How do we become strong in faith? 

By knowing what is right and wrong. By meditating on God’s words, by being in communion with Him. We have an innate knowledge about good and evil and we are called upon to make the correct choices for the betterment of all mankind. We trust in a Higher Being and we do so though faith.

For each of us must live a life according to our beliefs and do so in a  manner honorable to God, ourselves as well as those who were before us. 

I am grateful to all those brave women that came before me, upon whose shoulders I now stand. And because of their sacrifice I can be a person in my own right, entitled to my own opinions and responsible for myself, now I am tasked with passing the torch to a new generation of warriors.

  1. Thank you so much for leaving your “calling card” at JanBeek so I could find your blog and enjoy your writing. You are my 666th follower!! That has a great ring to me – because I am not superstitious about numbers. Any time I get a new follower, it is a reason to celebrate. Thank you! I hope you visit my blog again soon. I will enjoy perusing your site, too!

    1. Ms. Jan Beek & gifted 50; I prefer the word FAN to FOLLOWER, as follower implies a Leader, and who are we leading here? I first Read, & then I comment, which is writing to me, if I think I have something New to say, I go on Word Press and write out an article…..I appreciate all of the “Likes” on my e-mail, yet unless You decide to make a “Comment” I have no way to Reply to you! I write all of your names down in my “Little Red Book” so I do not forget them in my old man’s brain…..I hope this makes sense to YOU ALL…..George

      1. It made perfect sense, George. I like the word “Fan,” too. And yes, if the reader doesn’t leave a comment, it’s hard to reply. But sometimes, I do. I click on their name, find their blog, and see if I “like” theirs as much as they “liked” mine. And if so, I often leave a comment thanking them for visiting me. BTW, I like the idea of a “little red book” – But I keep the names of my followers in a folder on my computer. WP makes it easy for me because they send me an e-mail every time a new “fan” clicks to follow. You get those, too, don’t you?

        1. Ms. Jan Beek, It has been awhile since I last wrote a comment to you., I think you should remember power outages when you store everything on line, some of the sites I visit seem unable to remember a simple pass word, so I have to constantly make up a new one, Google comes to mind here, I must have logged in 30 + passwords, yet every time I am prodded to Sign In, my last password does not work, go back to square one, start over! I am losing faith in this so-called new technology world, a new computer arrives with no written instructions, so it becomes hit or miss as to weather or not it will preform for me….Some are born to it, others, like me, have to learn step by step…….Have a nice day!

      2. alaskamanspeaks; I think ‘fan’ and ‘follower’ actually mean the same thing. You ask; “Who are we leading here?” Loads of people if you ask me – that includes even Trump and such. There is this concept of an ‘opinion leader’- once you put your ideas down; people stumble across them – agree or disagree; you have already led in shaping people’s minds on what to think about, whether is overly important or not. I may be wrong but that’s what `I think.

    2. Ms. Beek, & gifted 50, thank you for the interesting discourse, keep on writing & sharing, I am old now & my heart & fingers are so tired, especially so, now that My Life long Love has left this world, and me alone…..I am sending you Blessing’s on these Holy Days, please pass them along to those YOU LOVE….

        1. Dear gifted 50, I wish YOU & YOUR Loved ones a Blessed Christmas, thank you for thinking of me! This has been a hard time what with the loss of my Lady Love, and YOU have helped me through it…..May The Great Spirit Bless YOU!

      1. Makes perfect sense. I like the choice of “Fan” instead of “Follower”, too. I am sorry for your loss. Thank you for sending blessings. I did pass them along to my loved ones. How old is old? I am 80 and blessed to be going strong. Did you see my post with all the angel wings? I’m ready to fly!!!
