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,

Jesus is our HOPE! A Ketchup and Mustard Saturday!
It's a really needed Ketchup (catch-up) and Mustard (Must Do) Saturday! What a long time it has been since I've written on this blog. My last words here were to remind us of how great God's faithfulness is to us. I believe that more than ever today. According to the sidebar, there was a Plan for the year on this blog, but life had a way of taking over some of my plans the last few months! So thankful for God's grace, patience, and hope!
I grew up as an "army brat", but my dad returned to Fort Carson, Colorado twice. I attended school in the Colorado Springs area in 4th, 5th, 8th, 11th, and 12th grades. That is where my parents chose to stay after my dad's retirement. The fires and violence in Colorado this past month have brought my heart "homeward": 1. For my Colorado home! 2. For my eternal HOME!
Two of my favorite scriptures address what has happened this week in Aurora, Colorado:
2 Corinthians 4:6-16
"For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
7 But we have this Treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to Himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
16 Therefore, we do not lose heart..."
"...Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ."
One of the survivors of the Aurora shooting has posted a blog that is a must read as she gets us to think more on the topic of: "this treasure in jars of clay" and "Christ in you, the HOPE of glory..."
Therefore we do not lose heart.
Oh, the JOY! Be Blessed! Be Transformed!
