There Is Work To Be Done...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog


There is work to be done;
Today is a day that we have been given to Labor;
To work while it is yet day!

It does not matter if you are building a nation.
Or building an army!
Planting a vineyard or planting a cotton field!
We are to Labor;
Guiding and guarding what is dear to us!
Loving and helping our children and families!

Nurturing all those we have been given to us...
They become a part of us, we need them as much as they need us!
In all our Labors it can become mind-boggling to all the
Needs that need attending to!
Our duties are pretty much 24/7

Whether you are a daughter, sister, aunt,wife,
Mother or Grandmother!
There is work to be done...

Pray for a renewed vision for your family!
Start this new day and chapter with this;
A Prayer
A devotion to Him and a plan that is in His hand!
We are not of a fairy tale material;
Like" Once Upon A Time"
We are rather of the book,
"In The Beginning"

Be not AWOL
Report for duty, set your hand to the task!
Do not look behind you, but look ahead to the lovely sunset,
When the day is done!
And you hear well done good and faithful servant!

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
(Psalms 18:32)

Zote Soap
Have you ever used this soap?
It is so good to get out stains from clothes!
I had such a ball this last spring doing a little photo shoot!
Thought I might share a few of the pics with you!

Please feel free to PIN them on Pinterest if they might
Interest you!

I use these cloths pins really all the time!

Do you ever hang your clothes out on the line?
I still like to hang my towels, then I still pop them in the dryer
To fluff them up soft :o)

Lovely Memories...


Living from glory to glory Blog

Lake Michigan in all her glory;
No Salt
No Sharks 
No Worries


Living from Glory to Glory Blog

Truly the handy work of a mighty God!
Dew in the morning


Living from Glory to Glory Blog

Fresh fruit to fill our bowls to overflowing!
Taste and see that the Lord is good!


Glory to Glory Blog

May the wind blow;
And the waves of His Love cover you!




May you live and move and have your
being in Him!
Every step I take I take in YOU...


A game of shuffleboard anyone?
Fun and games in the sun...

I am saying goodbye to another summer season...
I have had so may changes in my own life,
And I believe this is a season for many changes in your
own lives!

We must always be flexible so we will not break when a new
and wonderful change does come about.
When we stop to realize God is the potter and
we are the clay...
Girls were going to be so beautiful!

We had a lovely vacation this summer!
We had our 8th grandchild born!
We left our old church, after 12 years with them!
We have joined a new very small independent Baptist Church!
We saw so many rainbows this year!
We had a few hard trials.
I have noticed I am getting older and a bit slower.
I prefer my home and a few close friends over crowds.
My Hubby is my dearest friend...
My two closest friends are moving away soon.

My heart is heavy and glad all at the same time!
His mercies are new every morning...

Tell me about a new change in your own lives...
Where may this next season be taking you?

I pray each and every one of you who visit this humble blog;
Be blessed and filled to overflowing with His Word!

A Path to No Where...

Living from Glory to Glory Blog
Why would someone take a path that leads nowhere?


Why would someone take all the time and cost,
to build a path that leads nowhere?

This walkway really had me stumped!



For the life of me, I was just thinking,

What was this person thinking??
This brick path just stopped!
And it was leading nowhere...


As we all know we have seen or experienced this very thing.
Some, pathways have no profitable destinations.
So, I ask you this;
How can becoming a Godly woman be worthy and profitable?

A woman who will choose the right path can change a life,
and turn a country around!
Daily she can take steps that lead to a known destination.

A woman who keeps the home fires burning.
Keeps the home alive...
Our world needs women who will choose this path!

 Homemakers who love God! 
Living from Glory to Glory Blog

 Who will lead the next generation of Young Ladies?

Who, will desire to take the path that will keep our homes set apart!
 and for bringing Glory to the Lord!

May becoming a Homemaker never be looked at, as a path
that leads to nowhere!

 I have noticed a trend on how married couples, have put off having children!
 They have made the decision to save enough money till they can afford children.
Others do not ever want to have children!

Or;
They are just waiting...


I do not want to be judgmental or critical in any way;
But I can't help but wonder if being a Mother or Father has
lost it's appeal for this generation?


I have purposed in my heart not to be a Christian woman who does not
 Just blend and fit into a culture of friends or family.
 In other words, to not just rock the boat!

Being a light, sometimes can annoy others!
We are called to be set apart!

I have always admired the pioneer spirit of women and men who
would be willing to travel the path less traveled!
Do you think we should be more willing to not just go along
with the crowd?
The Lord has said that His path is narrow...
But Lord help us to discern those paths that lead to
KNOW WHERE!

We are all looking for more freedom and self expression!
At what cost may I ask this generation?

The Lord said to multiply;
We are not even replacing ourselves!

I do understand the problem with most the worlds problems
Come from a three letter word!!
Sin...

May we ask the Lord to show us His path of righteousness and holiness
Living and looking for that narrow road in life's situations!

Invest In Things With Eternal Value...


Living From Glory to Glory Blog


When I woke up this morning I felt such a sweet sense of memories!
Feeling the expectation of what a day might bring.

Seasons will come and go...

But we are all looking for bedrock relationships.
Some things require more of us;
Are you willing to invest in things with eternal value?

Let's face it ladies, we all live in a world with more distractions,
Then Carters got pills!
(My Mom always said that, I had no idea what it meant)
But it must of meant way too much!

Well, here goes;
Do you want to be right?
Or keep the peace?

Are you so Bossy even your dog runs away?
Who fears you?

When you get a phone call if they say something like this;
I was bored so I thought I would call you.
(Sure sign something wrong with that relationship)

When was the last time you got a sweet card in the mail from a friend?

Okay, here is the other side of this thought,
When do you stop investing in relationships with friends,
That seem to use and abuse it?

We all have a few cracked pots for friends
But lets face it, we all have a few quirks about us!

I am in a place right now that two very dear friends will be moving.
We just left a church we had been at for a dozen years.
We are going to celebrate another wedding anniversary.
The dog ran away!

Now I just realize summer is almost over!
What....

Okay, back to what I was getting at!
Be wise in who you invest in!

All the time you spend reading the Bible will bring profit!
Every smile you share brings hope!
Every cup of cold water offered in His name,
He says you shall surely not lose your reward!

Invest in your man...
Love him and feed him and be there for him!
Be the cutest, sweetest secretary in the world!
I always liked that song;
~Your not women enough to take my man~

If you have girlfriends that challenge you in the right way;
To grow in Christ, to be a better homemaker,
And makes you laugh, she is probably a keeper!

God has put all things in His timetable,
We all have the same amount of minutes per hour.
May we inquire of the Lord for all we set our hand to...

Notice that picture at the top?
Well, it was an anniversary gift many years ago, and the very
first time I used it for a pot of tea;
To my shock it cracked, I cried!
Yet I still display it in my china curio cabinet!
She is a treasure and a keeper even if she is cracked!
Not perfect, but beautiful to me...
