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,

Patti



TRANSFORMED MOMS:MOMS TRANSFORMED

Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

THE GREATEST GIFT A MOTHER CAN GIVE...IS THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING...





.

I'm so grateful for christian parents who make the committment to live lives for Jesus.
.
I'm so thankful for christian parents who give their children the knowledge of the LORD.
.
When parents pass Jesus on to their children, they give the gift that keeps on giving and giving and giving...
.
I was blessed to be a part of a wedding this past weekend of two young adults from two different races who both have given their lives to Jesus. Their daddies and mommies prayed for them to marry christian mates. God answered their prayers.
.
Here are Antwan and Chelsea the night before the wedding as Antwan sings for us "I'm a Hard Fightin' Soldier on the Battlefield". It was a wonderful evening of sharing from the heart...

As you look through the following wonderful pictures of Saturday's wedding of Antwan and Chelsea on Amelia Island, Florida...please know that you are looking at pictures of two families who dearly love the LORD and want to please Him and only Him...they are passing it on to children and to children's children...

.

Steve officiates a beautiful, God centered ceremony.






.
Antwan's parents look on with the confidence that Chelsea is the answer to their prayers for a spiritual mate for their son.







.

Chelsea's parents sit with grandkids on their laps as they watch their youngest daughter vow to love, honor, and cherish the man who they have been praying for for so many years.
.

Then, there's the gift that just keeps on giving...Jesus living inside family and friends...



.
Here are some of Chelsea's friends. The three in first picture are of Chelsea's York College friends who came to the wedding: Alanna from Colorado, Ashley from Texas, and Bryanna from Oregon. All three young women, who also come from three sets of parents who love the LORD, joined Chelsea while in college by putting tattooes on their feet that say: Romans 10:15 ("And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings of good things!")




.


The gift keeps giving and giving and giving... pass it on...









.

On Saturday, I posted about how Steve and I got to know Antwan and Chelsea in the first place. You may scroll down to that post below.

.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember to come back by as I continue to post for the first half of this year about Christ's Sermon on the Mount. We're on Be-Attitude 4 this week: "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled."
