ICB 12: Retrieving Joy

Drawn by Moi

This week I present to you ICB 12: Retrieving Joy (8:38)

I wish to thank Jodi @ Joy Discovered AND Kristen @ Halfway To Normal for inspiring and uplifting me when I truly needed it!

My Gratitude Poem:

I love how he (hubby) drops in just when I need him
the laughter T produces with his funny antics
the art sessions Jojo and I share
a clean and well maintained stove to prepare dinner
Anzan gently playing in the background
re-assurance of a roof staying over our heads
the resources to grant the wishes of four loving mothers
the sight of beautiful glitter markers and sharpened color pencils
a new love affair with doodling
finding my voice through art (who would have imagined)
Comfortable sleep and refreshed awakenings
knowing I am held safely in my Father's arms
the strength and wisdom my daughter possesses
Joel Osteen's uplifting words
the joy of our ministry thriving for 2 years and many more to come
new growth and empowerment
No need for doubts or fear
NEW Peace (it's renewed daily)
the gift of knowing joy from DEEP within

  1. Great podcast Tabitha. I'm sorry you were feeling overwhelmed and yucky. I'm glad you have made it through this time.

    PS I just LOVE your voice!

  2. Thanks for stopping by on my SITS Day!!

  3. "New peace..."

    Tab, I come here to get snippets of stuff to take with me through my daily rounds...things that make me think of the rightness of things instead of what may be 'wrong'.

    And, that which you wrote? A very new thought for me...imagine peace being renewed each day and that I can ask for that.

    I love coming to visit with you.
