Table #6: Simple Elegance

Meet Tina at Table #6.

This is Tina and her husband, Steven.  They are practically newlyweds, high school sweethearts who found each other again after many, many years.  She says thank you to her elf who helped her pull it all together. 

I knew from our very first conversation that Tina knew the Lord.  Every time I talk with her, I get Holy Ghost bumps all over.  Now, I know that's a term that not everyone understands.  The teenagers I worked with knew so well, they'd go, "Oh, she's getting the chill bumps thingy again." It's just one of the ways that God reveals Himself to me and I'm so thankful.

Tina is a hairdresser and unapologetically shares Jesus. I would betcha she prays over every head she touches.  She's very humble and would certainly not want me to draw attention to her.

Table #6 is elegant, not in a foo-foo kind of way, just simply elegant.

To me, Tina's table is like her, not doing-your-good works-to-be-seen kind of thing. 

"You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before man, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:14-16

When I look at Tina I see the example of a godly woman. 

"Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from the outward of appearance...instead it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit which is of great worth in God's sight"  1 Peter 3:1-4
