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."

IN CHRIST ALONE - I STAND BY MY MAN


This summer has been quite different for our family. Over the course of 5 weeks, Steve or I have been gone from home without the other. In Genesis, when God said that it is good for man and woman to have each other -He knew! Marriage is a difficult proposition for anyone entering into it... especially if both people are extreme opposites in personality and style. The journey often starts when opposites attract. Then, the journey often comes to a halt when opposites attack. For us, it has been a long road. Yet, here we are, married for 36 years and really missing each other when we are a part!
.
I've thought a lot this summer of what it would be like to be without him permanently. I would not like it! I've thought about the concept of "standing alone" as a single person or widow/widower. I wouldn't like it! My only solace would be that I can stand alone in Christ.
.

How thankful I am that God said that the two should become one! I am so thankful for my godly christian husband who allows for me to stand with him as one in Christ! His old cell phone used to have a ringer when I called him. It was the song: Stand by your man! I miss it! It's a reminder for me TO STAND ALONE IN CHRIST WITH MY HUSBAND!

This summer Steve traveled to Nebraska to see his parents (and 2 of his 12 siblings) and then spent time in two parts of Missouri with two of our sons and their families (which of course includes 2 and 3/4 grandbabies). Last week he was able to "get away" on a trip to Canada planned for our Life Group men. Here are a few of the hundreds of pictures he brought back from his adventures:
