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."

SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME... BLESSING THROUGH THE STORMS OF LIFE...

This week the fall colors are at their peak in South Jersey. I understand the transformation of the seasons, but I do wish that the brilliant colors, this time of the year, would stay a bit longer. Our neighborhood is vibrantly alive right now!

.



My 50+ years of life on this planet have found me living in some simply gorgeous places:



  • I used to look out our windows at the purple mountains majesty in both Colorado and Utah...





  • Steve and I took many foliage treks through southern Indiana and famous Brown County...



  • I rode the school bus, as a young girl, through the hills of Nancy (Lorraine), France...


  • I stood in our yard in Okinawa, in my pre-teen years, and watched the waves of the China Sea lap up on the beach...

  • on three different occasions of living there, I looked out at fields of wheat and head high cornfields from the maple tree lined streets of York, Nebraska...
    And, yesterday, in spite of the storms in South Jersey, the beauty of the street we live on screamed through my rain soaked car windows. God, once again reminded me via His creation, that the beauty is there... I just have to change my focus... my perspective, in order to see it when the storms of life come.
TRANSFORMING THURSDAY

"From the fullness of His GRACE

we have all received

one BLESSING after another.

For the law was given through Moses;

GRACE and TRUTH

came through JESUS CHRIST."

.

The truth is that in the storms of life, counting our blessings IN CHRIST is the best policy. They may not be seen, but they are there - He's made sure of it!

I have been through many storms and I have always seen God's blessings on the other side.
