Time to get my act together!

This summer has been tons of fun, but it is over.¬† BUSY season coming and I need to¬†be responsible.¬† I spent a lot of time in Proverbs 31 this Summer and I really feel God has wired women in the house to order the house.¬† It is in our job description (and not men’s so don’t be mad when they can’t coordinate a side dish with dinner).¬† Sooooo back to being the woman of this house.¬† I am woman hear me roar!!!

Those who know me know that I take DINNER TIME as numero Uno priority in this house.¬† I truly feel that Dinner time HAS TO be eaten as a family!¬† If we can’t have one time of the day where we all sit and hear each other talk and share, then we have to evaluate our schedules BIG TIME.¬† Sooooo Back to Meal Planning.

So come back if you want to see some of my Monday Menus back on the blog.

Metamorphosis

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Sanctification! (and yes I said it in my head like an old time preacher).  

Transforming power of the Spirit.¬† I love this one because it says “being transformed”.¬† I am being transformed.¬†¬† We are BEING transformed continually.¬† Into HIS likeness!¬† With Increasing Glory which comes from the Lord.¬† Well, if that doesn’t come full circle what does??

The transformed in this texts is the Greek: metamorphoo.  Which of course made me think if metamorphosis, which of course made me think of a butterfly.

A caterpillar into a butterfly.  Wow! Now that is a transformation. 

I have spent the day thinking about the contrast between a caterpillar and a butterfly and the amazing process it takes to transform from one to the other.

And I just love the parallel!¬† The “before” was so….., well,¬† I don’t want to hurt the caterpillars feelings, so I will just leave it alone.¬†¬†¬† But then, the transformation begins.¬† It spins a¬†cocoon, and that cocoon is like God’s Word; it ¬†surrounds the caterpillar, shielding it from all outside worldly factors that could harm it.¬† The cocoon lets the once caterpillar grow, and change, into something so beautiful, that it truly is a work of God.¬† A masterpiece.¬† Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!¬†2 Cor 5:17

In that tranformation¬† comes out probably one of the most beautiful things ever seen, a butterfly!¬† It’s not a minor alteration! It’s a New Creation.¬† I am a new creation.¬†
