It is GOD who BLESSES and TRANSFORMS...
This is a blog for women who:
(1) Desire to be transformed by JESUS' LOVE, HOLINESS, AND GRACE; (2) Believe that GOD'S WORD is the true Spirit food for HIS HOLY SPIRIT who lives within us; (3) Submit to GOD and walk this journey of life with HIM transforming us more and more into HIS likeness.
It's a blog about the POWER OF TRANSFORMED LIVES. Let's begin with yours and mine and pass it on... 1 + 1 + 1...
Since God's Holy Spirit lives inside a christian, let's choose to be nurtured and transformed by feasting daily on Holy Spirit food - God's Word - The Holy Bible..
Once in a while I take a hiatus from writing, but I have begun again on Easter Sunday 2013. Usually, there will be multiple blog postings each week. You are invited to use it as part of your daily quiet time. Topics may run for several months at a time. The current topic is posted over on the right side bar. Each week, I will try to connect to a song or two that goes with our current topic.
Each day of the week follows a special format: Sunday in the Son; Meditation Monday; GratiTuesday; Women in the Word Wednesday; Transforming Thursday; Family Fellowship Friday; and, Ketchup and Mustard Saturday.
There's a whole lot here! Take your time to browse. Please come back and visit often. Welcome!
Because of Jesus, we can be family,

I am not in control!
You and I have dreamed big dreams over the years....especially when it comes to dreaming for our children....but, we are not in control. Many of you have prayed with me for my children's health and wellness. This week as two of my children called me to tell me their stories I was reminded once again that I am NOT in control.
Caleb has some health issues that require him to be on medications. We have petitioned the Lord repeatedly about this but are very aware that the meds are needed. This past week with some glitches between his doctor and a clinic Caleb could not get his meds. In the past, when that has happened, Caleb has ended up in the hospital or with a huge relapse. It's been a rough week for Caleb and his bride...but they have survived and are better for it. Mama Patti didn't have any control over that situation...but God did. Thank You, Jesus. Thank you Jesus also that today is the first year wedding anniversary for Caleb and Krista...7-7-07 to 7-7-08.
Jessica has had a really rough week with her 24/7 migraines. She's called the weather in Indiana this week as the PERFECT STORM for migraines. She's spent alot of time sleeping and has missed some work. Sometimes when she comes in her house she'll leave the keys in the lock or just forget to close her door because she's in so much pain. Monday night, after getting the mail from the mailbox, she did not relock the front door and forgot to turn on the alarm. About 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning Jessica heard people talking in her living room. She opened her bedroom door to find two drunk men there. Her words were firm and strong, "This is my house! You need to leave now!" They did! Mama Patti didn't have any control over that situation...but God did. Thank You Jesus.
Proverbs 16: 3,4,9
Commit to the LORD whatever you do,
and your plans will succeed.
The LORD works out everything for his own ends —
In his heart a man plans his course,
but the LORD determines his steps.
Have you committed your children to the LORD?
Do you trust the LORD to determine their steps?
