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."

MY FATHER'S EYES... FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION...

MEDITATION MONDAY



.
Yesterday we honored those who are fathers. Specifically, we honored those who have done well or are attempting to do well in their roles as fathers. As mothers, we are so aware of the role(s) fathers have.
.
I sat nearby as Steve visited in our home with our daughter, Jessica... our 3 other children on the phone... and his 83 year old father on the phone. Before that, at noon, Steve and I ate at Don Pablo's with Andrea and 2 of her 4 sons as they missed daddy Chuck who was captaining his boat in the Atlantic.
.
Earlier in the day, Steve preached a powerful Father's Day sermon to our church family. He challenged fathers to:

1. Protect
2. Provide
3. Be the spiritual leader
4, Model how to live love
.
I thought about the many times that I've seen that done in our home over the years. It was a common sight to see Crystal or Jessica sitting on daddy's lap as they shared love and laughter. I'm so thankful for the hearts and eyes of compassion that all 4 of our children have developed... they have their "father's eyes".
.
I thought about being with Caleb a few weeks ago and seeing one year old Perry outstretch his arms to his daddy. I remembered Caleb as a young boy walking around the house in his daddy's cowboy boots and standing at the door waiting for Steve to come home. Then, I thought of recent pictures of Jordan and Chloe and I meditate on God's wonderful words in Psalms 103 :
.



"But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD’s love is with those who fear Him,
and His righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep His covenant
and remember to obey His precepts."
