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."

HE'S ALIVE! HE IS LIFE AND LIGHT!

.
What do the following have in common?
  • celebrating Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection?
  • a baby girl born in Chicago?
  • someone's husband being honored at the Pentagon?
  • a gift of 1200 turkeys in South Jersey?

.

I'm overflowing with thankfulness for them all!!!!

.

1. Although I believe that my life is to be lived out daily as a celebration in honor of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection AND that every Sunday I gather with christians to take communion to focus on remembering what Christ has done for us...there is still something very special about Easter. Spring has sprung! There's more hours of light! Jesus has indeed risen! Thank you, God, for the signs of resurrection and NEW LIFE all around!
.
2. Last Thursday, our oldest son's wife gave birth to their first child...our first grandchild: Chloe Mae... Thank you, God, for this NEW LIFE!

3. Today, transformed mom, Vanessa's husband Brad will receive an award at the Pentagon from a 3 Star General! The award?
.
Civilian of the Quarter
for the Headquarters of
United States Air Force
Deputy Chief of Staff
for Logistics,
Installations
and Mission Support
.
This means that in the midst of working with many much older than he is, Brad has shown a superior committment and service via his 32 year old Christ-like servant heart. We're SO super proud of you, Brad!! Thank you for modeling your life after the chiefest of servants. Thank you, Vanessa, for going way over the top in supporting Brad in this appointment to DC for the past two years.
.
We've been studying Christ's "Be-attitude's" on this blog. He follows them up by saying that people who live the "Be-attitude's" are salt and the LIGHT OF THE WORLD. Thank You, God, for the LIFE of Brad and the LIFE of Vanessa. Thank You, God, for allowing Brad and Vanessa to stay plugged in to You, so that they can be salt and LIGHT to their world!

4. Turkeys in South Jersey! A distributor had 1,200 to give away to people in need. The Pitman church of Christ said, "Bring 'em on! We can give them away to people in need!" I'm not sure what the final count was, but someone said most of the turkeys weighed 20 lbs. I carried a few and they were heavy! How many tons of turkey is that?!??! Thank You, God, for the opportunity for us to be salt and LIGHT to an impoverished world! May each LIFE that is touched by this gift come to know You and the NEW LIFE that You give!
