"My heart is ready, O God – my heart is ready. I shall sing and make music.
Awake, my glory!"
From Psalm 107, Lauds
This verse was actually part of yesterday's (Nov 14, 2018) Morning Lauds and it really spoke to me. I am awake Lord! And my heart is ready! Ready to serve You with my renewed yes!

God is just filled with unexpected surprises!
Would I ever have guessed that it would snow before Thanksgiving? ❄😄 Nope!
But I also never would have thought the Lord would have been faithful time and time again to shower and provide my family with his love and grace. Even when we have majorly screwed up (and believe me...I have had a bunch of these), he never left us alone.
So my prayer for you today is that you take each day as a chance to see the joy in the unexpected surprises the Lord gives. You never know what gifts he has for your heart and soul.

Answering the question; “Is there a particular law or command of God that you find hard to obey?” 🎄🎄
Two of us answered: Love your enemies.” 🎄🎄
But I love what Jesus said about loving people. ♥️ ♥️
If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
There may come a time when it will be possible for you to humiliate your worst enemy or even to defeat him, but in order to love the enemy you must not do it... The Greek language has another word [for love]. It calls it agape. Agape is more than romantic love. Agape is more than friendship. Agape is understanding, redemptive goodwill for all men. Agape is an overflowing love, a spontaneous love, which seeks nothing in return. And theologians would say that it is the love of God operating in the human heart. When you rise to love on this level you love all men, not because you like them, not because their ways appeal to you, not because they are worthful to you, but you love all men because God loves them. And you rise to the noble heights of loving the person who does the evil deed while hating the deed that the person does. And I think this is what Jesus means when he says, “Love your enemies.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

My superpower; I’ve got some crazy analytical insight. My kryptonite; when I see something’s not working I’m quickly on to the next thing
Some might see this as being agile, adaptive, but we can move on from a place that requires effort instead of an exist and miss the miraculous
In the book of Judges we find the account of Samson’s life. Several wrong choice and he has seemingly missed his chance at a purposeful life. But not so
With some help Samson realizes that he has one more shake left in him. The bible records that after a period of being out of alignment with his purpose (true self) and being held in a pit as a slave, Samson shakes the foundation of the building God’s enemies were in and accomplishes a major assignment in his life by bringing down the building and killing more that day than he had in his glory days
Have you walked away from something prematurely? Business, Marriage relationship, job, idea, etc... Sis, you’ve got one more shake left in you
Today is the day you pick yourself up, brush the dust off your shoulders, and get back in alignment with WHO you are, so you can accomplish what you have to do
It's been about 5 years since I've seen these beauties. And I'm blown how much Noelle has grown!! 😮 So glad I was able to see them while in Huntsville and meet the beautiful babies! #KingdomLife#SistersInChrist
"Prayer activates your faith and God’s power." @michellelmyers

So glad to have you join us on the Posture of Prayer Challenge!😘
I was seriously lacking best friend time! These crazy work hours have me a tad stressed. So glad we got the kids together and had adult time. And by adult time I mean we sat at the kitchen table drinking our coffee and talking about life, while being interrupted by toddlers 🤣
She's my person! There is your spouse who is your other half and bestfriend that you want to spend every day with until you grow old, raise your family with, share your dreams and love unconditionally in the most romantic way. He is your person in a different sense....and then you have your crazy best friend who you can always lean on, who totally gets your woman issues, the kind your husband just won't fully get. She's your go to gal for all of life's crazy advice. She's the person you can talk to about your husband's Christmas gifts, because welll duhhh we can't go telling our husbands what we are buying them! Lol
If I'm lucky enough one day we'll be sitting in rocking chairs on one of our front porches talking about our Grandkids one day♡
It is so important how we need other people around us. How easily encouraging words, post card or acts can lift our minds up? ~
One of close friend of mine once send me this postcard including psalm 91.
Today, 14.11., went to Christian fellowship meeting and met wonderful new friends as well as loved seeing old friends. One simple ask "may I hug you?" really made my day. It made me realize how I want to see us to spread love more around us - even if we have known each other for an hour or two.. 💕🙏😍✨😇
"God will give you wings, not visible, so that no one will hurt you" - said The Old Lady (who I visit) of being evangelist for example abroad✨💕
'Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. To him alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. Who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever. Who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever.'
- Psalm 136:1-6
When you surrender and give ALL of you to a God that loves ALL of you. When you are AL IN, and know there is power in surrendering...GOD can show you his power! .
Matthew 22:37; Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. #allin
~ Week 29 ~ 2 Chronicles 7-27
I am reveling today in the knowledge that I am loved by the King of kings! There isn’t a day that goes by that my own actions or thoughts don't remind me of the pit from where I came.
Yet my Creator spoke my name and shattered the darkness. He reached down and lifted me up, washed me in His own blood and pulled me into His eternal embrace.
I am, and will remain until I cross the Jordan to be with my Beloved; a flawed creature —prone to wander, prone to elevate myself above others, prone to seek to live my life unto myself, prone to grumble and complain—and yet He continues to lavish me with His love and endless grace.
How could this sparrow NOT rejoice? How could I NOT sing?
Celebrate with me today: sing, dance, and blow kisses to the One whose adoring eye is on YOU!
INTRODUCTION: Temple for the KING ~This week’s reading treats us to a virtual tour through the building of the glorious temple of Solomon. From the ornate carvings on gilded furniture down to the design of the finely appointed furnishings, we see perhaps the finest example of 🍃"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”🍃 Colossians 3:23
Yet even Solomon’s Temple with all of its opulence was a dim reflection of the eternal Sanctuary in which our King is enthroned in unimaginable glory.
INSPIRATION ~ As you read this week, I invite you to enlist your imagination. Read (or listen to) a small portion, close your eyes and picture every detail in your mind.
Let your reading be an act of worship. Allow the Holy Spirit to usher you into the Holy of Holies that awaits our arrival.
🍃At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that Shone like an emerald encircled the throne. ... From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing.🍃 Revelation 4:2-5
PRAYER ~ "Father, draw us into to your presence and close to your heart. Help us to walk worthy of your name."
KEEP READING ~ In His Love, Tabitha🍃💕
This little girl & I hit the road early this morning after taking Luke to school & we painted the town red! 💃🏻

#TRADERJOESTUESDAY with Friends 👯♀️💕
Who else loves to go grocery shopping with their friends?!?! I got to join my girl, Flerida, on a trip to Trader Joe's to stock up on all the good, good stuff for my Thanksgiving cooking this year. Along with my normal cooking/meal planning for Thanksgiving, this year we are having a pie contest! And I for one still have no idea what to bake 🤷🏻♀️ Solution? A trip to Trader Joe's to get inspired and check out all the exciting things to make for Thanksgiving. I love that Trader Joe's has items I can use to cook with that can boost the nutrient density of the meal and not sacrifice flavor! Today the blog, is a list of ingredients that I plan to incorporate into my Thanksgiving meal; such as Butternut Squash Pizza (I am Italian), Delicata Squash with DIY Tahini Sauce, Mixed Green Salad with Almond Buttah Turmeric Dressing, and Cauliflower Stuffing.
What are some recipes you’re excited to make this Thanksgiving?
