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... LEADS TO SALT AND LIGHT...

You often come to this blog and read wonderful things about my church family. Well, I won't deny it! It's going to happen again today. This group of people are over the top sacrificial in love offerings of themselves... their time... their possessions...
.
1. Dan's sermon on Sunday was "START ONE TO HEAVEN IN TWENTY ELEVEN." In other words, he challenged each of us to share Jesus with enough people in 2011 that at least one would make the decision for Jesus and eternal life. Each of us had a sticker to write one or more person(s) name(s) on. The name(s) that we each wrote down would be who we'd be praying for this year. Each of us came forward to affix our stickers to a poster. As you know, my cell phone camera is having some challenges, but I think you will get an essence of how powerful that quiet / somber time was as we dedicated ourselves to being LIGHT AND SALT to our friends and family.
.Sherri's high quality camera took this picture of Matt placing his sticker on the already almost full poster of names. It was a powerfully thought provoking experience!
2. Then, at the end of the service, the congregation once again gave some wonderful gifts to their ministry staff and families. We are so humbled and grateful!
.
3. We closed our service with the elders reminding us that we are sending people to Haiti for the 3rd time, in the past year, this week. Part of the nine member team came forward as the elders blessed them, read scripture, laid hands on them, and prayed for them.

4. Then, yesterday on FB, I read this post by someone else about my wonderful church family:
  • ‎400 chairs unloaded from the back of a truck, stacked ten chairs high, wheeled from the back of a truck into church building, unwrapped, un-bundled all the straps, cardboard, and plastic wrap, then carried junk back outsided to the dumpster; then everyone posed for pictures. Total elapsed time=1 hr. 15 minutes. Men, women and children helped. What a fantastic church family.

Thank you Pitman Road church of Christ for leading the BLESSED LIFE that shines and flavors Jesus in this dark world!

.
I'm grateful that we have the freedom to study Christ's sermon on the mount this year on this blog. I invite you to come back and join us daily as we study and internalize His powerful teachings.
