Tammy Tangent Tuesdays – The Hot, Hot, Hot 3 C’s Girls Club!

Psstt… Have you heard?

Blameless Girls 3 C's 1.1

There’s a new Girls Club in Town! 

It’s HOT, HOT, HOT and it’s ruled by the 3 C’s!

Blameless 3 C's

Hello Beautiful!  I pray you’re having a blessed week so far enjoying life this side of heaven.  It’s that time again; it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!  This weekly challenge costs you nothing but change and the freedom it brings through being H-O-T, H-O-T, H-O-T, you’re going to wonder how you’ve lived without it! 

Blameless 3 C's 1.1Connect † Celebrate † Contribute

If you dare to be hot, dare to care, have the courage, and are willing to be challenged, then I welcome you to an environment to connect, to celebrate, and to contribute!  Yes, this community is solely focused on celebrating the Beautiful Beloveds God designed us girls to be while bringing unity back into our communities.  It started all the way back to the early church formation reflected in the Book of Acts and somehow or another it got buried and forgotten.  After much digging and cleaning of the musty-dusty dark corners, the treasures of Acts 2:42-47 emerged!

Extra, extra, read all about it!!!  Today’s Headlines:  The girls are coming to town and they’re sizzlin’ hot!  I don’t care how old we are, young or old, we are all looking for a place to connect and belong, a safehaven and atmosphere that offers us acceptance in embracing the Beautiful Beloveds that God so intricately designed that is anything but boring when it is based on treasured darlings who believe in the H-O-T, H-O-T, H-O-T community: Being honest, open, and transparent!!!

H ~ Honest

O ~ Open

T ~ Transparent

As Neichelle Guidry reminds us, “If you are going to seek the kingdom of God — you must overcome your addiction to comfort.”  The only way we can embrace all that God has in store for us is our willingness to change through being H-O-T!!!  The Bible never said living a life in being a Beautiful Beloved would be dull and boring, quite the contrary; God said it would be an exciting journey filled with joy and blessings if only we would approach each and every day with great expectation.  This can be accomplished through the richness that relationships with others can bring while bringing Him glory.  There’s so much life to live this side of heaven; it’s time to embrace it while shedding off the old!

I don’t know about you, Beautiful Beloved, but I dare you to care enough to take on the challenge in being the courageous Beloved God designed you to be.  Then you’ll be able to live by the 3 C’s rule which will allow you to connect, celebrate, and contribute to our communities all the while knowing just how Beautiful and Hot you were designed and created to be!

Come on, I dare you to take on the challenge to…….

Connect, Celebrate, Contribute

Acts 2:42-47

While Being Hot!

This challenge is for the courage to care and to change!

We all have a choice to express caring through the courage and challenge to make changes in our character and conduct through the celebration of contributing and connecting.  Phheeeewww… that’s a lot of C’s!  Let’s make it our weekly challenge this week by starting the 3 C’s Club in being H-O-T by connecting, celebrating and contributing with those in our communities.  Let’s celebrate it by expressing at least “three encouraging words” a day through courage and kindness.  Encouragement breeds beautiful change!

We need each other to share our lives through honesty, openness and transparency; how else are we going to learn how to be better and stronger at being who God designed us girls, women, friends, daughters, moms, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, you name it, to be!  We need each other!  We need the wise to share their experiences of failure and victory; otherwise, where will the youth learn from.  How about the value that the younger generation brings through their innocence and purity, it can sure teach us old dogs a few new tricks found in the secret joy of great expectations.  Their gift of technological savviness and their unprecedented determination for justice is needed!  We all contribute to the successful unity within our communities.  When we make the decision to connect with a pure heart, humility and conviction, then we’re able to celebrate and contribute to other people’s lives.  That’s what the gospel is all about; loving through H-O-T relationships.

Let’s start opening our tender and bleeding hearts to God’s direction.  We need each other and two are better than one; and three is definitely not a crowd, it is a community!  Where there is community and care, we are able to contribute by sharing our testimonies of great strength and desires and then our connections will turn into great communities of celebration!

Thank You For Being Beautiful You!

Tammy Tangent Tuesdays ♥ Dare to Share and Care

Blameless Beautiful You

Dare to Share & Care!

Hello Beautiful!  I pray you’re having a blessed week so far.  It’s that time Blameless Flower 6.6again; it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!!  This weekly challenge is easy, yet so powerful, it’s the clearest and most effective way we can share and express our beautiful beliefs this side of heaven:  Love through the words of encouragement and affirmation!

I pray a lot of you received the blessings and freedom found through the power of forgiveness from last week’s challenge.  I know I did; with a lot of purging, praising, and praying!  One thing I heard from some of you was that a lot of apologizing was going on, too!  What a healing testimony of the power of prayer and grace!  Thank Blameless Flower 8.8you for sharing the beauty in claiming victory through your stories and emails.  That’s the purpose behind what Tammy Tangent Tuesdays signifies, trying to stimulate unity back into our communities through loving on one another as we dare to share and care!  We need each other to flourish and beauty truly thrives in bunches. 

Since we’re dealing with lives that are messy, our actions and reactions tend to create environments that are anything short of bursts of fuel leading to love and restoration.  I know I don’t have it all together and life is really hard at times, so simple tokens of love and recognition often brightens the navigation through the densest fog so we can see the beauty that lies ahead!  There is nothing more beautiful or better than authentic love daring to share and care! ♥♥  May we never forget, we are all under construction this side of heaven!  Plus, we learn and experience what it’s like to tap into the deep well of living water; you know, that mother struggling to hear good news about her child or that wife who longs for intimacy, simple words of acknowledgement will weave and infuse love into that pain and loneliness!

Blameless Bloom 1

I don’t know about you, but have you ever heard of anyone complaining about being loved on or encouraged too much?  ♥♥♥ There’s just not enough time to share and pour out our love on each other or to even receive too much love!  Everyone we encounter is either arriving, thriving or surviving; and sadly, the majority of Beloveds are just surviving.  ♥♥♥  When we dare to share and care, we are sprinkling love that nourishes the soil (our hearts) for us to grow and bloom where God has planted us.  This is done through the tender care and nourishment that love promotes.

Blameless Flowers Bunch 11What an easy and effective way to spread some love to those close and near to your heart, along with those you don’t really know well, like your neighbor or pastor’s wife or even your child’s teacher, and just tell them how beautiful they are and how much you appreciate them for their life, their service, their dedication, or for just being the beautiful selves that they are!  We all love to hear how beautiful we are; I know I sure do!!!  ♥♥♥  I pray we never forget how beautiful and unique we all are and how our lives contribute to the beauty of the bunch!  Beauty is only skin deep!

This week’s community outreach challenge is: 

Pick a handful of Blameless Beautiful You 3people and send them an email, a card, or even a text that tells them how much you love them and thank them for being beautiful, just because!  Heck, just click on one of the flower pictures and tag it and spread the love of beauty.  Let’s start spreading some love and cheer around our communities.  What a great way to brighten lives!  There’s never enough time and love to share with others.  Let’s love more.  All we need is a little more love.  Try something new; spread the cheer of love!  ♥♥♥  Most of all, Beautiful Beloved, never forget,  Love Never Fails (1 Cor. 13:8).

Never Forget

Blameless Beautiful You

Perseverance – Romans 8:25

Blameless Shackles Tammy

That defining moment when you glance side to side after losing all perception of reality and time due to the relentless hours spent on your knees begging and pleading with the Lord to take away all the haunting and violent pain.  You catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror as you quickly adjust your shirt and appearance in an attempt to pacify some sense of control and order.  That element of control has always stimulated the very neuron that alice-coopersparked the appearance of the facade and the mask you once wore and hid behind concealing the actual hot mess you were, exposing the real dark and broken parts caused by pain.  As you gaze deeply into the mirror, you realize buried underneath all the thick layers of black teardrop stains permeating your face resembling more of an Alice Cooper visualization at his best suddenly announces the arrival and introduction of the Beautiful Beloved that God created you to be!  There’s beauty in the pain!  God’s will is unfolding!

Blameless ReflectionSuddenly through all the fear and disbelief, you peel yourself away from the glue that has held you captive for so long when you realize this old mindset that has brought about nothing but pain and rug burns that caused golf-ball size holes in your favorite jeans, is all due to the pain caused from believing the lies of the enemy.  It not only kept you from community and closeness, but it also cut you right in half exposing your bleeding heart.  That just needed the love and mending through open heart surgery which could only be performed by the Great Physician.

With the disbelief that the shackles that had held you captive for so long had been released, you look back into the mirror and wonder if the person looking back at you is the result of the faith thatBlameless bucket_of_a_well has equipped you with this bohemian strength to endure and which has sustained you for so long or whether it’s a faith breakthrough of the very words that you have clung to found in the Book of Living Water, the Bible; “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1 NIV).

In eager anticipation, you cautiously take another step towards freedom, you know, that wide-open door where the words loudly proclaim “Follow Me” into that unknown and unfamiliar territory, what God calls His Promised Land, that you have been praying fervently for.  You quickly scan the Blameless Door of Rest Follow Meenvironment you are leaving behind because you know you’re never going back.  You try and process what this whole “perseverance” thing means when you hear, “But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.  In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” (Romans 8:25).

Tender heart, let us remember that the Lord never fails to fulfill His promises.  We may feel His lack of timing supports or insinuates that He doesn’t care or He doesn’t hear us or that He isn’t real, but His timing is ALWAYS perfect.  Perseverance is to endure until that door opens!  While our salvation may be secure once we believe, His transformation process is being worked out through each and every second of our lives, often through painful trials that keep us on our knees in prayer.  Sometimes trials come specifically designed “because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us” (Romans 5:3-5).

Blameless BetterMy friend, I know what deep suffering feels like.  I also know what years of faith has brought about; beauty at its darkest hour!  Before I even knew it, God not only restored my heart’s desires, but what He has blessed me with is something I dared never dream of, nor could have even imagined.  The pain was brutal, but I hung on, I cleaved into, and I never let go of the Only Promise that is worthy of our faith and perseverance; Jesus Christ!  He is Real, He has Risen, and He Rocks the very core of our being.  Hang onto the promises of “things hoped for” while giving over your concerns to the Lord because He truly does care.  He just wants you to trust His ways and His timing because what emerges at the end of the storm is not only better, it’s far more beautiful than you could ever imagine. 

Take a look in the mirror and examine the woman looking back while pondering God’s loving words: “You are beautiful just the way you are, and there is nothing you can do to change that.  Embrace it!  Thank me for it!  I want you to bloom exactly where I have planted you.  I love you.”
