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."

IN CHRIST ALONE... I SMILE...


I was on my way home from teaching last night, after 8 p.m.... deep sighs... exhaustion... a desire to hug my family... a deep need to be alone with my God...

I looked up and there He was...
.

.
My heart lit! Tears streamed! My spirit began to worship in song...
  • "God has smiled on me! He has set me free!"...
  • "In Christ alone, I put my trust... in Christ alone, I put my trust..., In Christ alone, I put my trust..."
God has smiled on me! I am blessed! I'm so grateful!
.
I woke up early this morning with my young adult children on my mind. Life is tough! I wrestle in prayer for each of them. I know they are wrestling in prayer, too.
.
It's before 6 a.m.... deep sighs... exhaustion... a desire to hug my family... a deep need to be alone with God... I just looked up and, above my computer, there He is!

.
.


He's in the 10+ notes that

I have hanging above my computer.

Some are notes of scriptures to remind me....

and some are notes from friends

who allowed God to work through them to bless me...

One is an obituary...

.


My heart is lit! My tears have come again! My spirit begins to worship in song...

In Christ alone, my Hope is found.
He is my Light,
my Strength, my Song.
This Cornerstone, this Solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love! What depths of peace!
When fears are stilled... when strivings cease...
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ, I stand

.

God has smiled on me! I'm gratefully...
