Son, husband, father, brother and friend. Trying to follow Jesus. Often failing, sometimes succeeding by the grace of God.

Nice to meet you. Thanks for dropping by and please do leave a comment to let me know that you’ve been here. My name is Paul Abspoel, I live in the Netherlands in a place called Hoofddorp (near Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and approx. 4,5 meters below sea level). I earn my living as a Publisher at a Christian Publishing House in Amsterdam. I love Lydia – she’s been with me since our high school years and together we have three beautiful teenage kids: Robin (boy, 17) – Sosha (girl, 15) and Pascalle (girl, 12).

I started this blog in June 2009, but I’ve been blogging in English here and here before. I am also blogging in Dutch here and I love taking photographs – some of them are uploaded here.

  1. Dag meneer Abspoel,

    Enige dagen geleden heb ik u op Twitter gevonden; u zet daar leuke dingen neer. Uw zelfbeschrijving over “Jezus volgen” doet sterk denken aan Adrian Plass’ woorden: “I’m so tired of being a Christian, I just want to follow Jesus”. Komt het daar een beetje bij in de buurt? Ook vroeg ik mij af of men bij uw werkgever nog behoefte heeft aan vertalers/meelezers/etc.. Je weet ten slotte nooit hoe een koe een haas vangt.

    Met vriendelijke groet,
    Irene FO, Taaldiensten Limwierde,

  2. Dag Irene. Bedankt voor je reactie en voor het mooie citaat van Adrian Plass waar ik inderdaad veel in herken (ik ben een fan van Adrian Plass en een struikelende volgeling van Jezus).
    Mijn Nederlandse blog (VRIJSPRAAK) kun je vinden als je op de link hiernaast klikt.
    Stuur maar een mail naar p punt abspoel at arkmedia punt nl over eventueel vertaalwerk (dat is mijn werk emailadres)

    Groet (en zeg maar geen “meneer” – ik voel me zo al oud genoeg, ha ha)

  3. Hi Paul,
    I found this blog via your dutch blog. I am also Dutch and writing blogs in English and Dutch. (mcmellow dot wordpress dot com)
    I think this blog is a very nice blog with your beatifull pictures. The night pictures of Amsterdam.
    I am very impressed by your dutch blogs about Jesus. If you can you should rewrite them in English and post them on this blog also.
    Greeting Mello Lorier

  4. Dear Paul, thank you for your blog and writing the old hymn. I found it while I was preparing to teach the Sunday School lesson on 1 Peter 4&5.
    God has wonderful ways of bringing Christians together.
    God loves you and so do I, Ken
