Support our Officers

Starbucks Gift Cards Anyone?

Hello Beautiful!  It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!!  We are finally going back to resuming our outreach service geared towards bringing unity back into our communities. What a great start with this weekly challenge that has us going out into our communities and showing our love and support through acknowledging all these amazing men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day to serve, defend and protect! Blameless Police 3And with the crime, mindset and condition of the world today, please understand how vital it is for initiating this unity back into our communities by constantly rallying around them through love and support.  We can accomplish this by letting them know how much we appreciate them for all they do on a daily basis with random thank-you’s of support and encouragement along with a great cup of java!  Starbucks gift cards anyone!

Blameless Police OfficersWhen a police officer is sworn in, they take an oath to serve and protect the lives and property of others, while defending and keeping the public safe.  These brave men and women are constantly on high alert and live under tremendous stress.  They don’t leave their homes and families worrying they might not make it home, they just pray that their dedication and service can make a difference while defending and protecting their community.  Don’t let bad press cloud the respect and honor these brave men and women deserve!

For all of the wonderful parents and grandparents out there looking for a great summer activity, what a fun craft/art project that will keep everyone cool and happy, is to have the kids make thank you cards and draw up cute letters to drop off at your local police departments; and for the rest of us, to send a simple email, a written card, or personally handing them a Starbucks $5 gift card with a thank you note blessing them with words of gratitude for all they do and that we are supporting them along the way and praying for them!

Blameless Amazing OfficerWeekly Challenge:  Let’s get together and go out into our communities and give a loud and great big “Thank You” to all of our local law enforcement officers.  Let’s start showering them with love and support through gratitude and praise for all they do by handing them a Starbucks Coffee gift card, along with writing out a thank you note, offering hugs, words of encouragement, and a whole lot of praise!  Keep a few in your purse and a few in the cup holder of your car; you’ll never know when you might be blessed to hand one out!  Let them know they’re appreciated.

Grab your girlfriends, your church community, kids and grandchildren and share the love through support!  What a great way to model to our kids our respect for authority and unity in our communities through giving back while firemen tragedyhaving fun by loving on and blessing others with random acts of kindness and cheerful smiles radiating that Beautiful You!

They do so much for us, let’s do what we can to say “THANK YOU.”  We all have a role and responsibility in contributing to our own neighborhoods and communities by helping restore the unity and what a great way to start, through the support and encouragement of our law enforcement officers before it’s too late!  We all need to do our part!

Wanted: People With Courage to be Kind! Tammy Tangent Tuesdays

Wanted:  People with Courage to be Kind

Unity within our Communities

Hello Beautiful!  It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!!  I pray you are all reflecting upon the 49 blessings of gratitude that we get to hold onto each and every day as a gentle reminder of how blessed we are!  We now have before our very own eyes our gratitude walls written by us to reflect upon and ponder on the many blessings we have related during last week’s challenge. That is a token worth holding in every pocket of our beating hearts to remind us just how blessed we are!  Sometimes it’s easy to forget!  Here’s the link to last week’s gratitude wall: http://wp.me/p5vQdf-CS.

I can’t even begin to relate the gratitude and appreciation I have for all the amazing emails, spoken words of encouragement, and inspiration to continue in writing these communal outreach Tammy Tangent Tuesdays challenges!  Talk about being grateful; I even need this encouragement!  I know I have deviated somewhat from the community outreach aspect, but it’s obvious my obedience was a blessing.  Phew……  We Beloveds get so depleted ourselves, it’s hard to pour into others when we need that extra grace required ourselves!  It blesses me to know my wild tantrums and prayers are so receptive.  We all have so much to be grateful for; sometimes it’s just buried beneath all the mud and muck of the messiness that our lives bring.

This weekly challenge is going to require intent and strength, not to mention grace, to scurry up enough courage to be kind to everyone we cross paths Blameless Courage Kind Frog 7with.  Kind of like the picture of the frog with the butterfly sitting atop its head; he would much rather eat the butterfly than extend kindness!  And in the wake of the massacre last week in South Carolina, we have an amazing testimonial of faith and grace that the victims’ families extended and poured out into the killer that took the lives of their loved ones.  I may be blessed with the gift of compassion and can love and forgive easy; but I can actually say to be able to relate forgiveness through love and kindness like they shared right away takes more than a beautiful soul, it takes a life built on, filled with, and immersed in constant communion and relationship with Jesus Christ.  I want to love like that; don’t you? 

We need to start embracing and engaging with everyone that we encounter daily through reaching out and influencing, not living in our bubbles of comfort and seclusion, so our touch will unite and link us all together. This fulfills what Ephesians 5:1 tells us, “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”

It is alleged that the killer stated he almost didn’t go through it because the people “were being so kind.”  That should give us all enough incentive to start embracing everyone we meet in our communities with courage and Blameless Courage Kind Frog 7kindness.  This is the only way we are going to bring unity back into our communities. Simple acknowledgements of affirmation such as smiles, saying hello, hugs, and getting to know those who live in our communities are detrimental to bringing unity back. The victims’ families have stayed surrounded by community and love from others instead of going at it alone.  They are uniting together which is why love is being poured out and not more evil.  That’s how we tap into God’s love and sustaining power of the Great Comforter, the Holy Spirit, that Jesus promised would help us get through the tragedies of life (Ephesians 3:16-21).  That’s the beauty of community and the purpose of the body of Christ!  It’s going to take a delicate balance between prayer (meditation) and practice (action) in claiming the courage to be kind!

Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to be kind to those who have hurt us in the past, but what a beautiful blessing it will be to everyone once we do.  Remember that frog with the butterfly atop its head!  Results bring miracles of healing all because of grace. Take advantage in being as courageous as a lion in making peace with being Beautiful You while extending kindness through the grace you’ve been given.  You are equipping yourself with the courage to let everyone witness the Beautiful You, all because of your kindness!

Unity within our Communities

Every new change and mindset requires courage.  It’s hard to change the way we see ourselves and others and what we think, say or do.  My favorite scripture regarding courage is to meditate on the wonderful words of wisdom written in Joshua 1:9 (NIV) that says: “…Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”  It takes a lot of courage to change our mindset through meditation and action, but we need more kindness to make a change in our communities!!!  Let’s start by being kind to others!

I pray you have an amazing week, Beautiful, filled with love and the courage to be kind!

Thank You for being Beautiful You!
