Do You Want To Be Transformed?

God changes lives.  I am living proof. 

We have been set FREE so that we no longer have to worry if we are good enough or if we have done enough good works or deeds, or if we have kept enough laws to be acceptable to God. 

Wow...I don't know about you, but that is such a relief for me.  Knowing that Christ fulfilled the law for me so that I could live my life with FREEDOM brings me such peace. 

How else would I have been able to count 85 butterfly sightings?  Yes, it's true. Yesterday was an amazing day and if I were stressed or depressed about life and all the things I "had" to do to please GOD, I would have missed this incredible milestone.  On May 17th, I counted 36. I surely surpassed my record. Lol

I know it sounds crazy, but what can I say?  Butterflies are attracted to me :-)

Galatians 5:22-23
God Changes Lives:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no law." 

With freedom comes peace. YAY!

Love for a great Sunday!

Wow- Butterflies are truly attracted to you.
And yes - He does transform life and I often ask although I don't want to know the answer: If it hadn't been for the Lord who had been on my side, where would I be?

Enjoy your evening.

I'm with you sweet sister...I don't even want to know. One thing for certain, I wouldn't be a blogger. I'd be so overworked that I wouldn't have the time, energy or passionate for it. :)

You get some rest. After Tuesday, sleep will be a distant memory :)

However, I love to babysit. Lol

Much love

I meant to say that I surely wouldn't have the PASSION for blogging. :-)

I like stopping by your blog, especially on Mondays when I'm sluggish and halfway asleep, cause I know there will be a post that inspires and motivates and leaves me feeling very appreciative of my blessings (promises) in life.

Can't complain about that.

Loved the post.

Thanks Don.
My blogs have picked up where my seventh grade diary left off. I used to write all my thoughts and feelings in it. Unafraid of what anyone thought. At the time, that was the safest way of expressing myself. I was writing from an authentic place inside of me.

Then came the struggles and disappointments of life.

Now that my life has been transformed, I'm back to my roots. Writing from the core of who He created me to be. Expressing myself in hopes to make a difference in the life of another.

If one person is inspired, motivated or encouraged, then exposing my vulnerabilities was worth it. After all, this life is not about me.

Love, peace and blessings
