Welcome to The Table

Welcome to the TableI shared this post on Facebook, and then it dawned on me that I didn’t write about it here first!  So…. here it is….

I’m so excited!!! My brain has been going a million miles a second….flooded with ideas….

I shared a video on Facebook about the book “The Turquoise Table” – it’s all about creating community in our own front yards by reaching out & loving others….

In case you haven’t followed recent posts on my blog, I started writing and sharing a bible study based on the Love Dare book (you can read about it here: https://celetac.com/my-love-dare-with-god/ )…..and yes, it’s about loving others!

And then, a friend at church invited me to join a group…. Fighting dirty…loving big… it’s all about getting out of my comfort zone by physically reaching out to love on others…

Well…. I’m not really out and about daily, and lately cancer challenges have really been a pain in my backside (literally! 🤣) – I’ve found that when I am out, lingering to reach out is much more difficult physically than emotionally

Notice a trend????

Well….as I read the book (The Turquoise Table) I’ve been thinking, “where can I put MY table???” I live at the back of my complex & my cottage gets very little traffic 😏….down the way, a neighbor sat out chairs, but that didn’t seem quite right either…

As I was engrossed in the book (thank you Amazon Prime!), I kept asking God, “where’s my table?????”

And then…. as I was preparing to work on the Love Dare with God study, it hit me…. THE CRAFT ROOM!

My complex has a room designated for crafts, but it’s rarely, if EVER used! They also have a COFFEE ROOM; it’s on the 2nd floor… the BEST part???? They are both near me!!! The main activity room for the complex is at the front of the property & a bit far for me to walk on a regular basis, let alone carry beverages or crafts… notice a ‘God Thing’ happening here????

No Strangers HereHonestly, I was so excited that I just had to walk over for a visual of each room 🤓….. the only thing it didn’t have was a billboard saying,

you asked Celeta, here it is…..love God

Yes indeed….. I found “my” table….first things first though….finish the Love Dare study, and THEN leap out of my comfort zone again and watch God show off 🙌🏻

Happy Friday!

For those of you following the study, My Love Dare with God, I wanted to post a quick update…  I am diligently working to catch up on audios – yes, I’m still behind, but steadily making headway!

So hop on over to the study My Love Dare with God or click on the Video/Audio link Video Links

imageimageToday is a really good “feel good” kinda day so I’m trying to get as many in as possible – they take a bit to upload, but by the end of the day I hope to post at least through day 21 (week 6)

 

Thank you again for your patience!

Testing of Faith

For weeks I’ve known it was time to share personal news beyond family and still putting it off! Thank You Chrystal Evans Hurst & P31 for sharing words on my heart! Click here to read Chrystal’s devotional.

October 15, 2014 might be seen as one of those “terrible-no-good-very-bad” days….as the doctor’s words floated across the hospital room…”aggressive stage 4 breast cancer….” and my response? “Well, darn”

Yep…tough news is…well…tough! The great thing? God is in control and I am surrounded by loved ones & covered in prayer literally across the country!

 The thing is…we never know what tomorrow holds and we each have a choice…I choose to believe God holds me in the palm of His Mighty Hand and find tremendous comfort in knowing on days when this body aches, He is my faithful healer and providing a way!

From my last post, it’s obvious there’s a lot of backfilling to the story…bear with me as I attempt to share where God has me today, as well as all the lessons learned in 2014.
