Random Thursday Thoughts:

1. I stumbled (again) in my eating and (again) I was shown forgiveness. But, most importantly I forgave myself
2. My nephew T is struggling in math class, but he will be victorious (:
3. I am stronger today than yesterday
4. I now know the TRUE direction for our ministry, which includes this blog
5. I've made 5 A's in school so far (Yeah Baby!)
6. Yesterday's post RENEWED me soul deep
7. Last night I cooked baked Talapia fish with Butter and Herb Pasta and mixed greens (yum!)
8. I haven't had alcohol since my Grandma passed away (14 months ago)
9. The sight of it now makes me gag
10. I love who I am and what I'm doing with my life. I couldn't say that 4 years ago.
11. I NOW know that the strength I've been praying for was within me all alone (doesn't that rock?)

I'm Grateful For: Forgiveness, Patience, Strength, Peace, Kindness, Love, Guidance, My Family, Blog Friends (especially those who take the time to get to truly know me), The Ability To See, Hear and Speak, Life's Daily Lessons, His Word and His Promises.

The LORD is merciful! He is kind and patient, and his love never fails. The LORD won't always be angry and point out our sins; He doesn't punish us as our sins deserve. Psalm 103:8-10


  1. God is the King of fresh starts, isn't He? We need to be ever so gentle with ourselves. . . . I love how you express gratitude, Tabitha. I usually fall asleep at night in the middle of my thank yous to God--there's just so much to be grateful for, isn't there??

    (seems funny--it's Thursday where you are, and it's still Wednesday here :)

  2. Good for you! I find that patience and strenght can carry me far! Peace to you.

  3. I don't know if you know this...but you help people just by writing your posts and sharing your thoughts. They help me... Thanks for this.

  4. When we fall off the wagon, all we must do is get up, and jump back on. It's sometimes tempting to fall prey to despair and give up on oneself, isn't it? It rained here today, and that soothed my restless anxiety some.

  5. Love this, Tabitha:

    "I know that the strength I've been praying for was within me all along (doesn't that rock?)"

    Yes, that very MUCH rocks. You rock, because God is rockin' in ya.

    You are a precious soul.

  6. I don't want alcohol anymore either, Tabby. I have seen millions of lives RUINED by the drinking of it, but I have not seen a single life ENHANCED in the same measure by the drinking of it.

  7. Wow! Congratulations on everything!!!

  8. Every day is anew~~ just keep plugging away! Sounds like you have had a up and down week! Hang in there and huge hugs to you hon!!
    Namaste, Sarah
    BTW..I wanna come eat at your house - ymmmmmm!

  9. Hi Tabitha,
    I think it is wonderful that you took a moment to count your blessings and accomplishments!
    xoxo, Jodi

  10. Hi, Tabitha!
    That's so awesome about your A's, and your going easy on yourself with the healthy eating, and I LOVE your abstinence from alcohol. Way to go!

    Every time I read your posts, my heart softens and I find myself being grateful for your good words and uplifting energy.

    I hope your weekend is fabulous!

  11. How wonderful that you forgave yourself, I struggle with that myself. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. 5 A's! SO awesome. I just prayed for your nephew! I hope you have a wonderful day today!


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
