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."

SO LONG SELF... DOWN TO MY CORE...

MEDITATION MONDAY
.
.
It's all about God! It's not about me! I want to be like that from the inside out... down to my core...
.
Jesus had a few names for people who were religious, yet underneath it all had selfish motives: white-washed tombs.... hypocrites...
.
I had a visual of this again this weekend, as I took down our Christmas tree. I apologize for the fuzzy nature of these photos. Since getting a new cell phone last fall, I seem to have gone down in camera quality.
.
1. Our artificial Christmas tree was waiting to be taken down after yet another season of keeping our allergies away by not having a live tree:
.

.

2. Ornaments were taken off:

.

4. The top came off:

.

5. Branches on the right are off:

.

6. Brancehes on the front are off:

.

7. All branches are off:


.

Wait! If all branches are off, what is it that we see? Well, I'm sure with more camera clarity, you would be able to see that this is the artificial decorative tree that stands in my living room all year long!

.

In fact, after workers put in a french drain in our basement, I have never gotten my basement storage back in order. I cannot find the "insides" and the stand of our Christmas tree. Therefore, I chose innovation... I used what I had to create a Christmas tree. Visitors to our home did not need to know that the inside was not a Christmas tree at all!

.

For today, as you listen to our theme song: SO LONG SELF and meditate on this post, ask yourself...

.

DO I BELONG TO JESUS DOWN TO THE CORE?

I love the pictures that you posted here. It is a great visual. I really need to work on "so long self." I am just having a rough time and I daily say my verses so I can meditate and surrender to God. Thanks for your encouragement!
