Verbatim...


Verbatim, Living from Glory to Glory blog



I must say that unless it has been recorded, we cannot be sure of
Exactly what someone may have said.

We talk so much in just an average day, that sometimes
we can forget a name or time or date.
And even some very pertinent facts of a story.

My heart goes out to so many people;
And we need to try to get the details straight.
But, we can be in danger of repeating things that should not be repeated.

I want to be slow to speak and quick to hear;
But I think it tends to be the other way around!

I sometimes think of that very disrespectful saying that goes,
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
Now, would that hold up in the courts of this land?
Well, maybe...
My point is this we must realize we can really add our personal
Feelings or thoughts on something
 And at times it can be perfectly fine.

But we mostly can be adding fuel to a fire!

Have you ever been so sorry that you opened your mouth?

Speaking is a privilege, not the freedom we make it!
Freedom of speech is something God has given us!
But it comes with responsibility!

May we all try harder to get our facts straight;
Or tell someone I don't want to answer that.
Maybe you should talk to the source.

We all need auto correct;
Oh wait, that could also get you into trouble,
As even with that we cannot be certain of what is really trying to be conveyed!

Well, you must all really want MY opinion on every matter!
After many years of being a bit different!
I have learned that this world is not waiting to hear what I think!
My opinion is just that;
MY opinion!

But we need to speak truth in love;
I have been trying a little experiment,
When I am giving what I believe is what the situation calls for,
I have not been looking into the person's face, but rather speaking
 Slowly and gently and looking at my hands or out a window.
 It has seemed to stop some of the confrontation that sparks!
May our words bring light!

This world is just looking for a fight!
Our battle is not with people, it just seems that way!

Choose your words and battles wisely...

I think the only Verbatim we will see is when God looks at
Every word we have spoken

Shortcomings...


Weakness and strength, Glory to Glory Blog



Weakness And Strengths


You will never be transformed by continually looking at your own shortcomings,
never !
Nor will you ever be transformed by looking at the weakness of
your fellow christian.

"You will only be conformed by continually looking upon the glory
of the Lord Jesus-"

For they who live looking and beholding , though they know it not,
are being"changed from glory to glory by the spirit of God"

God will use both your weaknesses and strengths!
We are beautiful and with a purpose He has ordained!


When a trial comes hard and fast;
I feel the axle of my being wanting to tilt.
But I have been practicing to stay upright.
Remember those Weeble people?
They might weeble, but they won't fall down.

Do you feel more aware of your shortcomings?
I have had to ask myself, is this the enemy taunting me?
For I know the ways of the spirit, gently woos and shows me!

When I am in sin, He convicts me strongly;
That whisper that shows you are wrong.
Obey quickly...

I get tired of the enemy pointing out my shortcomings!
(Like I am not already aware of them)

My Hubby and I need to re-connect after we were slam blasted
with trauma and worry!

But, God is gracious and has helped us once again!

Sometimes we need to just go out for a meal together!
Hold hands, and count your blessings.
Pray for all those who are in need of prayer!
Do a kind deed for someone!

I desire to be a kind and gracious women;
But we all can feel the strain and stress of life's struggles!

Do we give up?
No, we never give up!
Keep looking into His word;
Lay your burdens down!
He knows we are but dust...

We must remind ourselves that we are just passing through!
We can't live in the short stop;
But rather the long haul!
From Glory to Glory


Be beautiful inside and out, as you are a special treasure!

Love Letters...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog

Seasons will come and go as we are all very aware of this!
But sometimes we just need to hang on to those words or memories.

Can you just close your eyes and see those sweet faces or places;
Of the past of days or years.

People and places and even a song;
can trigger a memory that can still captivate your heart!

We need new eyes each day to explore the gifts just waiting for us!
Yet having a treasure kept in the back of a drawer;
Or a pressed leaf or flower in the pages of your Bible!

May we not become blind and deaf in those sights and sounds,
Of our children giggling and playing.
Or your Husband sitting in his chair saying the evening grace.
These are powerful gifts God has given us!

These glimpses of the days that have come and gone;
They are treasures for us to pull out and to ponder.
As Mary did with Jesus.

But, I feel an excitement to hear and see with a new enthusiasm!
Do not become bored with your life and those in your family!
Live like today is the most precious day of them all!

Wake up!
Can you just hear with ears attuned to the song that God is
Singing over you...
Why does God say so many times a warning of these words?
"Those that have ears to hear"

I will not be one of those who will not hear the whole council,
Of God's Word of truth!

Stop cheating yourself and see that we are all being lulled to sleep!

Stop taking scripture out of context!
 Yes, God can give you a special promise for a crisis!
(Believe me He is God)
But let's not make a new doctrine from one scripture...

God is a God of providence;
Not chance...

When I look back and see the hand of God in my life;
And how He is orchestrating things!

This is why God always reminded us on how He did what he did for Israel!
Our Hope is in His return.
Find the promises that are for the believers today!
He gave us such an amazing truth!
They are His love letters to us!
Stop reading between the lines;

(That is where the church gets itself in trouble)

Love Letters
Read His today...

First Responders...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog




Being a responder is profound in a world that is dull and seared.
We don't mean to be insensitive to people or things around us.
We have just been bombarded!

 As women in our marriages,
 We must be quick to respond to our men.
They need to feel wanted and important and respected.
Sometimes we can overlook a much needed response to them.

As homemakers we can get so overwhelmed with life;
We can just feel in a slump and not respond as we should!
Keeping things in a organized flow.

Our children can even get slightly overlooked, when
A day can fly by faster than imaginable.

We have so many needs in a world that is lost and desensitized.

"I believe women were created to be responders"

I know that to be a responder will cost you something...
But do we want a faith or a relationship that does not cost us anything?

If you will never put yourself out for another person's well being;
We will be self-centered and not Christ centered.

We had so many people praying for our dear lost grandson in the mountain!
We were just blown away from the outpouring of so many people.

We are all called to be responders!!
It will not look the same for each of us,
 But we must make the effort to meet
The needs of those who are hungry and thirsty
Those who need someone to show some compassion.

We all have been lost in one way or another!
I am praying to be more aware when the Lord gives me 
A glimpse of when I need to respond!

There are well trained professional responders for
Natural disasters and search and rescue.

But we do not have to wait for a crisis or disaster to comply
with the scripture that the Lord gave us!

When we do respond it is as if we are doing it unto Jesus!



Matthew 25:31-46


31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.33 And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,fn you did it to me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Clayton's Reunion And The News Clip...

 
Colorado Greenhorn Rescue, Survival in the wilderness,

Family Bond

We have many bonds in our lives with many people.
The strongest bond is one of a parent and a child;
And a child with a grandparent.
This is family!

But let us take notice of another family bond;
The Body of Christ;
Where your children, become important to us all!

Children and the Body of Christ is the realization that we
All have a heavenly Father who cares and has a plan for each of us!

God asks us this very question;
Are you not you're brother's keeper?

Our entire family wants to Thank each and every person that lifted up a prayer
That
Was given in our grandsons behalf.

No one found our grandson;
It was only God who led him from the forest.
We were told that this part of the forest is referred to as hell,
Because of its dark and dense conditions.
(REALLY)

The search party was not even looking in the right place on this mountain.
Only God knew where he truly was at every moment of every hour;
Of a 27 hour ordeal!

May we all stop nit picking on those we love; and realize that
most irritations are very small in the grand scheme of things!

Wisdom is not usually lofty and high.
But rather God's command to love one another;
As you love yourself!

Only a few brave ones will lay down their lives for others.
We do this in prayer for others!
We do this with actions by helping others!
Just giving a cup of cold water in His name will bring Him Glory!

Here is the TV news clip of his story!

Our Grandson Has Been Rescued...

 



We have witnessed a miracle and answered prayer!
Out Grandson has been found and he is healthy.
I do not know the whole story, but they allowed him to call me!

My heart is full of gratitude and my faith in God did not waver.
Scared and the longest 24 hours of my life.

Rescue workers and dogs and even a helicopter helped in the search!
I will forever be grateful for all your prayers and love you all
extended to myself and our family;
But mostly for praying for our grandson.

Will share more another time!
