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."

MY DELIVERER... EXTENDS GRACE...

.

You might find her praying with a group of christian sisters...

.


You might find her listening and learning more about her God and His will for her life...



.
You'll often find her somewhere among a group of her christian sisters... just like you see above at our ladies retreat or below at our recent trip to Women of Faith....
.
.
During the week, you'll usually find her in our church offices, serving as our church secretary. She's beginning her 26th year in this position!

.

This quarter of a century mark has brought big changes to her "job world". She is a woman on the move... a woman in transition. When our church building sold before our new building was finished being built, the church offices and everything in the building had to be moved and either stored or put in our new temporary church offices in downtown Pitman. Just like the cabinet in the picture below, many things moved or changed in her world.

As I have often noticed, in the three years that I have known this wonderful christian sister - I see grace! Dottie cares deeply about her LORD and others. She truly loves! That compassion drives her to expect the best in others while reaching out with mercy and grace to the rainbow of people who come to her each day. Dottie knows who her Deliverer is and she makes every effort to be His heart and hands as she extends His grace.

.
Yesterday was Dottie's birthday and the celebration of her 25 years with the Pitman church of Christ. She was showered with cards... FB messages... and surprise on top of surprise as she and her husband John make plans to get away soon for a week in Williamsburg, Virginia.
.
I found a picture that I took two years ago on her birthday. We bought her a crown and a wand... Dan and Steve enjoyed the moment and gave her honor!


You know what? It's not hard to give honor to this transparent child of God. She has many roles in life and she fills them well - as only Dottie can. She's a very dedicated wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, and friend. She's a transforming, transformed lady who knows where her strength has to come from to survive this life. She's part of THE FAMILY.. who have claimed:
