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."

MERCY CAME RUNNING... TO GRACE....

MEDITATION MONDAY . .

When I gave birth to my four kids, Steve and I chose to "give each one back to the LORD". I don't believe that I ever considered that in that act, we would be signing up for a journey of LONGSUFFERING.

.

Three of our four children have physical conditions that are often at their very worst this time of year. God hears my cries... He sees my tears... GOD HAVE MERCY!

.

This past year, we've come to know the name of one of Jessica's disorders, as more research has been done and a foundation has been established: Intracranial Hypertension.

.

For many of the approximately 25,000 in the US who suffer from IH, it has been years of procedures as the search has continued for answers. For us, it has been close to 16 years.

.

FIVE things that I have on my mind specifically right now:



  • Our daughter has been in her bed most of the last 3 weeks as the barametric pressure has done it's work on the weather system and on her pain level.


  • Our friend Grace, who went into surgery 1/2 hour ago in Bloomington, IN to have a shunt put into her brain to drain her spinal fluid -in order to reduce the pressure.


  • A friend's niece, Meghan who had the same surgery done last Thursday for her IH.


  • All those with chronic pain who cry out daily, hourly, and by the minute... GOD HAVE MERCY.


  • The BLESSINGS that come with such suffering... as I listen over and over to the new song that I heard this past week. Please pause the playlist above to watch these brief videos. Then, go over to the right sidebar and listen to the new song entitled BLESSINGS (as sung by Laura Story - in the third video).
