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."

THY WORD... SUSTAINS ME....

.
A split second can change everything. I had been planning all week to do something special on this post today. Yet, life changes things because God is in control. Yesterday, our daughter Crystal received word that Wyatt had passed away very suddenly. What a shock! Wyatt was a remarkable child who never met a stranger or an enemy. Crystal had set out a couple years from college and during that time, she was Wyatt's one-on-one aide at the elementary school where Wyatt was my student and friend. Wyatt had been diagnosed with Williams Syndrome in early elementary. Here he is being held by Ms. Crystal in a class picture taken several years ago.




.
Please pray for Wyatt's parents, siblings, extended family and the hundreds of children and teachers who will be deeply affected by his passing.
.
As I thought about this into the night... my conversations with Crystal... my memories of Wyatt... I also thought of an inspirational saying.... I thought of how God works in our lives... and of the scriptures from yesterday's post...
.
1. The Saying:

Happy Moments - PRAISE GOD
Difficult Moments - SEEK GOD
Quiet Moments - WORSHIP GOD
Painful Moments - TRUST GOD
Every Moment - THANK GOD!!!

.
2. How God works in our lives...

  • Why had one of my students just given me a book about the untimely death of her young grandson? Why was it laying on my nightstand as I went to bed last night? I found amazing inspiration and comfort as I read the book.
.
3. Thy Word...for every circumstance in life!

  • THY WORD is truly "a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path..."

    Here is a repeat from yesterday's post:
