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."

LOVE THE LORD... FAMILY FELLOWSHIP FRIDAY...


Sometimes good intentions don't get the job done!  After injuring my knee further and spending most of the morning in water therapy and at the doctor's office, I now am walking with a cane AND a boot.  This is really gonna slow this girl down!  But never fear... I've got FAMILY and FRIENDS!

Brenda arrived at my house to clean.  While she did that, I was able to make my list of phone calls and do school work on the computer.  Then, I got to sit and be encouraged by reading my daughter-in-love's blog about our 2 grand-girls.  Afterwards, Brenda chauffered me to the University where I had a meeting and office work.  A professor friend helped me gather my files for an hour and a half to prepare for the testing I'm giving all day tomorrow.  Chauffeur Steve arrived just in time for my friend to carry my files to his truck while I hobbled along.

As I thought more about being "Poor in spirit!"  I knew that I was being taught today in multiple ways.  I cannot do life on my own strength!  Humility!  Non-resistance!  Service!  Love!  Those were all in my face today!

Also "in my face" today was my GRANDdaughter C.  Oh, she is not here!  But some things she has done/said recently remind me of the "poor in spirit heart of a child". 

"C" story #1 remind me to BE poor in spirit, BE mournful when things go wrong, BE meek enough to be moldable:



When "J"  commented, "Sad,"  "C" piped up, "What's sad, mom?"


"J" said, "I was just sad the ice cream place had closed, but it is fine." 

"C"  immediately said, "We need to pray for it. And then maybe it can open back up."

"J" and "J" smiled. Then they prayed. And they thank God for this moldable little heart and the ways He's already working in it.










 
 
"J" has begun to work on the ABC Scriptures with 2 year old "C".  Here is "C" story #2:
 
When they did the "A" verse, "J" wrote:  It's week 2 with the verse, so we made a craft today.
"As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."Joshua 24:15
 
 
Later, "J" wrote, "Last week we were supposed to finish B. We read the story of the Good Samaritan, and talked about how he built another up. When I finished, "C" asked me, "Can I give the Good Samaritan a hug?" Sweetie! 

First, we wrote ways that we can make others feel love, or build them up.

"C" came up with
a)play with them
b)be a nice friend
c) make them something with cute things
d) say something nice
 e)share
f) give a hug.
 
We wrote each inside of a heart, and she colored it."
 
WHAT A HEART FULL OF JESUS' LOVE
LITTLE MISS "C" HAS!
 
If you would like to get yourself and
your children started on this spiritual
journey of understanding and  memorizing God's word,

Blessed are the meek...
 
OH, THE JOY!!!
