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."

LAY DOWN THE BURDEN OF YOUR HEART... FOR YOUR SISTERS...


Our sister-in-Christ, Dottie, is a listener. She is a person who seems to have a pulse on many people in our church family. She understands mourning. She is a burden bearer. She lives out the first 10 verses of Galatians 6:
.
"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin,
you who are spiritual should restore him gently....
... Carry each other's burdens,
and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ...
,.. for each one should carry his own load...
... the one who sows to please the Spirit,
from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time we will
reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity,
let us do good to all people,
especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
.
Dottie plans, organizes, and leads our Secret Sister ministry. Of course, Dottie does a myriad of other things to serve and bless her church family, but the Secret Sister ministry is huge to her. Her desire is that we truly study each other and go about meeting the needs of the woman's name that is drawn. Each year she makes an afghan for her own secret sister. Everyone wants Dottie to draw her name.
.
Last Saturday, our Secret Sister revealing party was at Jackie's house. We had a surprise for Dottie. Everyone who Dottie had ever made an afghan for brought hers to show. Amazing!


Then, there was more! Melva announced that it was time that Dottie received something made just for her. Open it Dottie!


For Dottie, the bunny lover, Melva and Tammy had pieced together and quilted this amazing bunny quilt.

Our church family knows how to bear each others burdens and to encourage one another. On Saturday, we had some serious Family Fellowship!!!
