already amazing

This challenge was issued from “Heart to Heart with Holley”.
Take a moment and write a post on your blog, your Facebook or even a 140 character love note to a woman that you admire. Tell the world why she’s so amazing. More importantly, tell her. This may be the very encouragement that she needs to continue to be the #AlreadyAmazing woman she is.

And so, that is what I am doing today.

Kristine Tennant….truly, you are already A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

generous.  delightful.  honest.  forgiving.

From the first realization that we are SO different (black coffee and a sweet, creamy mocha something), our lives have intertwined.  In spite, or should I say because of the differences, we have become the best of friends.

loving.  committed.  passionate.  true.  genuine.  authentic.

Time has become irrelevant and oh so pertinent.  You have been in my pit(s) and still you remain faithful to me.  You bring me back to the feet of Jesus, always.

my friend.

To know that God has brought our life-paths together so that we are now joining with each other on this journey, will always amaze me.

Knowing that you are a constant in my life, reassures me.

Believing in your love for me, challenges me.

Seeing you live out your love for God, inspires me.

You, Kristine, are already amazing!
I constantly witness your love for God, and for Jason, and for your family – and the ‘amazing’ things that God accomplishes through you!
I really do want to be like you when I grow up! 🙂

It is my absolute privilege to call you my friend, and to take this time to honor you as being ‘already amazing’!
I love you!


My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love.

This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality.
It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even there is something to it.

For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.

And friends, one that’s taken care of and we’re no longer accusing or condemning ourselves, we’re bold and free before God!

We’re able to stretch our hands out and receive what we asked for because we’re doing what he said, doing what pleases him.
Again, this is God’s command: to believe in his personally named Son, Jesus Christ.

He told us to love each other, in line with the original command.
As we keep his commands, we live deeply and surely in him, and he lives in us.

And this is how we experience his deep and abiding presence in us: by the Spirit he gave us.
