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."

PRAISE YOU IN THE STORM.... BECAUSE JESUS YOU ARE OUR FIRM FOUNDATION...


God, thank You that Your Word is TRUTH! Thank You, that we can stand... put our whole weight on JESUS CHRIST... The Way... The Truth... and The Life... FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH!

.

On Sunday, our church family had an amazing worship service at our local high school (see yesterday's post). Then, we drove out to our new building site. We enjoyed eating lunch together on the grounds. Then, we gathered together for a "family photo". As we stood there waiting to pose, a bald eagle came up out of the trees and began soaring in front of us. What a sight! Another BLESSING from God! Again, our God was in the mix. This magnificent bird symbolizes hope for future generations of God's family here at this place:
.

Isaiah 40:30-31

"Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
.
There is a little fleck on the next two photos that is this magnificent bird. Of course, my cell phone does not do it justice.








.
Then, we spread throughout the new building and began covering the "foundation" with scripture. What a project! Yep! That's our church family: an extremely diverse group of people who have come together, as a body of believers, to be THE FAMILY OF GOD.
.

.
There were people in every nook and cranny. Transformed Mom, Melody, and daughter, Cassidy, headed for the electrical closet to write scripture on the floor there. Hmmm! I think it may have something to do with what happened that morning at services! (See yesterday's post!)
.
I camped out in my hubby's office, writing his favorite scripture(s) and mine.
.

.
Here are two of ours - both from 2 Corinthians: Steve's is in blue and mine's in black.
.
.
To walk over, as Steve enters his office each time will be the Be-attitudes - a reminder of how to live a BLESSED life!

.
Members of our family and friends also sent scriptures for us to write. I'll share them throughout the week. Crystal, our daughter, wanted to remind her daddy that she still remembered the scripture she put to memory in the second grade. Her friend, Shane, sent the verses from Philippians.
.
Crystal, also sent others for me to write for her daddy. Interesting that the first one is a verse in the same chapter as the eagles' verses:
.
"He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart."
Isaiah 40:1
.
“These things I have spoken to you,
so that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you have tribulation,
but take courage;
I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33
.
"I have set the Lord continually before me;
because He is at my right hand,
I shall not be moved..."
Psalm 16:8
.
"God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change
and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.
The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah."
Psalm 46:1-3

.
.
Other people came and went from Steve's office while I continued to write. Glynn wrote in one corner:

Transformed Mom, Kat , used her artistic skills to encourage Steve:

"Mr. Steve" has many young people who are his friends. One wrote:


.
I wish I could tell you what was happening in every room. All I know is that I am grateful to the believers who, this week, have chosen to proclaim that THE WORD is the foundation for their lives!

.

"For no man can lay a foundation
other than the one which is laid,
which is JESUS CHRIST."
1 Corinthians 3:11-12

.

Oh, and BTW, there were other sightings of bald eagles in the state of New Jersey on Sunday!
