Seven Days of Gratitude… Tammy Tangent Tuesdays

Gratitude Wall

Seven Days of Gratitude…

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows (James 1:17).

Hello Beautiful! I pray you’re having a blessed week so far and are enjoying being a member of the H-O-T Club; you know, doing life together with other Beautiful Beloveds that operate under the conviction of being honest, open, and transparent. Talk about building community! 

Oh, how our Lord smiles with great joy knowing His Beautiful Beloveds are coming together to connect, celebrate and contribute while being honest, open and transparent.

It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays…

With all the raging storms filled with heartbreaking tragedies affecting our world today, it’s challenging to keep our minds focused on the beauty, life and peace that our Beautiful Jesus offers us.

If only we could keep our minds focused on our Beautiful Jesus and be grateful, we would sojourn this side of heaven knowing:

We’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven (Matthew 5:14-16 MSG).

Life is all about our Heavenly Father, you know, and the glory we bring to His amazing name. That requires being grateful and not lives filled with groans and grumblings.

Blameless Matthew 5.16

This weekly challenge should be fairly easy to do, but it will require some dedication and determination, especially if life has brought on unexpected challenges or tragedies due to the effects from natural disasters, disease, or even the tragic death of a loved one.

We can always find items we’re grateful for that deliver the blessings that a cheerful heart being great medicine offers so our crushed spirits won’t dry up our bones (Proverbs 17:22). 

Writing down items that we are grateful for in our journals or on a piece of paper (journal wall) and posting it to our refrigerators where we frequent often, even taping it to the bathroom mirror or better yet, copy it to the wallpaper on our cellphones (♥♥) , as a great reminder and a gentle way to help transform our hearts and minds to a place that transcends all understanding.

Being grateful is powerful medicine and a great healer. Also, it’s great medicine for our souls, you know, the antidote that keeps our attitudes in check that acts similar to an accountability partner.

Blameless Community of Light and Love 1

Weekly challenge:  Write down seven items each day on your journal wall that you’re grateful for daily for seven consecutive days. They cannot be repeated again once you’ve listed them as an item you’re grateful for.

At the conclusion of this challenge, you will have a tangible reminder of forty-nine reasons to be grateful for and it will help rejuvenate your downcast soul. 

Come to the Grateful Wall and start documenting your items by listing what you’re grateful for. Remember, give thanks to the Lord, for His love endures forever (Psalm 136:1).

Sweet friend, one thing our tender hearts must never lose sight of:  We are not here by mistake. There is a plan for our lives and we are woven together to radiate our Papa God’s light this side of heaven.

If we believe in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our future, which is our eternal destiny, is built on the most amazing and solid foundation that can never be shaken, destroyed or taken away from us (Hebrews 12:28). 

James 1:17 reminds us, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” 

That means… We have a lot to be grateful for!!!

Until next time…

Thank You For Being Beautiful You!

Any Flower Will Do; Thank You! ♥ Tammy Tangent Tuesdays

Blameless Just Because Beautiful You 1.1

Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!

Hello, Beautiful!  I pray you’re having a great week so far.  It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays!!!  When the manager from WalMart shared and thanked me the other day for pouring blessings into her life with the flowers months ago, I felt it was time again to spread the love throughout our communities with flowers.  “Any flower will do; thank you!”  So this weekly challenge is to spread the beauty throughout our communities with flowers “Just because…”  Everybody loves flowers and they brighten up lives!

I challenge all of us this week to go out and share the beauty and joy that simple flowers bring.  Let’s show the world by sharing how a simple gesture of handing a stranger or someone we don’t know well with flowers or even just attaching them to a car’s windshield or your neighbor’s front door.  Just think of the joy that will be illuminated across the world and bring a smile to someone that will pay it forward with their joy resulting in the domino effect!  And we all know, when mamas are happy, everyone’s happy!  ♥♥

Blameless Flowers Beauty in the Bunch 1

I challenge all of us to go out this week and buy a bunch of flowers, $4, $5 a bunch (and if finances are tight, buy one flower or cut one from your own beautiful garden ♥♥) and attach an anonymous note that just states:

“Just because……. Thank you for being Beautiful You!  Pay it Forward.”

Find that neighbor that you don’t know and drop them off on their porch, give them to your pharmacist, a nurse, your barista, or the cashier of any Blameless Smile Reasonretail establishment, or how about that waitress that serves you.  You will be amazed at the reactions to what people say and do and remember!  Let’s get back to the innocence and purity of childlike motives and conduct; flowers bring such joy and sunshine that radiate even the darkest recesses. That smile and reaction will bring joy to a darkened world.  Come on, let’s emulate and spread the love of Jesus to a world that needs a bright spot.  We are all a part of our communities, a member of the body of Christ, and act as His feet and His love!  This is a byproduct that reflects and radiates the fruit of our spirit; love, joy, kindness and goodness, to name just a few ♥♥ (Galatians 5:22).

Share this post on your FB page and let’s get this circulated.  Every time you receive a bunch of flowers, take one flower and give it to someone else. I would love to hear how this simple token of love is brightening up others’ lives!

“Embrace that beauty within you and let it shine!!! Remember, we may be different in color, shape and style, but without each other, there is no beauty in the bunch!!!” ~ Tammy Ingram
