Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
Arise and Shine, Beautiful!
Hi Beautiful, guess who? ♥♥ I pray you’re having a great week so far. It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays! Thank you for your patience and concern in understanding I needed the time and opportunity to grieve the death of an old and dear girlfriend. Life is so fragile and loss is hard. It’s hard to let go and walk through all of our responsibilities while we are grieving, not to mention push and somehow plow through the numbing effects that death casts upon us. This one hurt!!! What a hard reminder to love on those while we can.
This weekly challenge is going to be simple and easy, yet full of blessings, by acknowledging some of the amazing people who grace our lives with sunshine and beauty! Pick two rays of sunshine and affirm the joy and love that they spread and grace the world with their lives by blessing them with words of gratitude and encouragement, thanking them for their lives and how much they mean to us. Let us never forget that we are not guaranteed any tomorrows so tell those you love and appreciate today just how much they mean to you. This will not only brighten up their lives, but because of the joy and beauty they will be exuding to others they come into contact with due to their excitement for being loved on and acknowledged will be spread and paid forward multiple times! We all love to hear how loved and appreciated we are, I know I do, and what a better way of starting that domino effect of love being poured out.
Words of affirmation are huge and oftentimes presumed and assumed that those we love and hold closest to our hearts know this; but after losing a 40-year friendship through an unexpected death recently just reiterates how fleeting life is and how we need to open the treasure chest of our hearts more often to those that we hold in the highest regard and share how important and integral their life is to us. Let’s spend more time cultivating and acknowledging those relationships that build up and help aid us in being the Beautiful Beloveds God created and designed us to be! Muah!!!
Isaiah 60:1 says, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” This way we will have more Beautiful Beloveds who are shining so brightly making a difference in this dark world while bringing unity back into our communities which glorifies and reflects the Love we receive from our Lord God Almighty (Matthew 5:16). Never forget what an amazingly Beautiful Beloved you are!
