Welcome to Altogether Lovely!
My name is Patricia Newman. I am married to a wonderful man, Steven, and we have been greatly blessed with five children two of whom are on the autistic spectrum.
All praise be to God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit! My all-consuming passion is Jesus, my Lord and my Saviour. For me, to write is Christ. To speak is Christ. Christ is life. Christ is All to me.
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
How about you? I pray that you are an earnest seeker and lover of our Lord Jesus. If not, I encourage and I plead with you to pursue truth. I pray that God will grant you a love of truth. The Bible says that people perish because they have not received a love of the truth (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Life is a gift and time is short. Friend, I pray that you know closely the One who not only made you but who sustains you daily. You were created for His glory.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created"
You must know God's will for your life and walk in it. This begins with knowing God. You can only know God as He has revealed Himself in the Bible. May the Holy Spirit of God guide you as you study His precious word preserved for you.
Because I was made for His glory, the purpose of this blog is the honour and glory of God. Blogging, for me, is one way of voicing and spreading the glorious message of salvation through repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ alone. It is also very much intended to be an avenue to encourage and edify fellow believers with the most powerful and life-changing message on earth.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
I believe that it is God's will that we make God known to our children. We must teach them the truths of God's word diligently. It is a high calling indeed to be a Christian parent. So help us Lord God. Accordingly, I will be uploading many Christian family and educational resources that I hope will be a help and a blessing.
My prayer is that you will find this online Christian resource a place of biblical inspiration, encouragement, warning and exhortation along the blessed and narrow path ordained by God. My prayer for you, friend, is that you enter or have entered by the "narrow gate" and that you remain on the "narrow road."
Finally, through this blog, I also share some of the devotional songs that I write by His grace. To God alone be the glory!

May the Lord God bless you abundantly as you live a life of obedience to God.
In Christ, my exceeding joy,
In Jesus Name
In me the love of Christ
In me the Spirit of Christ
In me the light of Christ

In me the righteousness of Christ
In me the servanthood of Christ
Christ in me the hope of glory.
