Maintain the Difference

 
Every Knee Shall Bow 
 
I will make a difference
between My people
and your people
Exodus 8:23
 
The Lord has put a division;
see to it that you keep up
the division in spirit, aim,
character, endeavours
and company.
 
Pharaoh has a people,
and the Lord has a people.
 
I always want to speak my heart,
As a women  that desires to please the
Lord.
 
I must in keeping with a good conciense
say that anything done
on hallows eve, that looks like even an alternative
to trick or treat, makes me wonder
if this is being just like the world??
 
Blessings, Roxy

Pressure Canning Chicken

 
Fruits Of Our Labor
 
Here is a picture of some of the chicken we
pressured canned.
It was so easy to do, it just takes a long time
to process.
The class we took at our extension office
was really profitable.
Also, to learn to not be intimidated by pressure canning:)
 
We are hoping to become well stocked in meats.
It is so convenient to just open a
jar of chicken or beef and add to your,
soups or stews.
 
I am so blessed to have learned the love
of home keeping,
from my own Mother.
 
In all labor there is profit
proverbs 14:23

Mondays


Monday
I have always found it to be wise to try and keep my Mondays
free from any added appt. and such.
Then it allows me time to get my home in order,
washing caught up. Some meals planned out,
and maybe something sweet for the week.
But, I also realize Mondays can be the very beginning
of many a women's busy work week.
And my thought is this:
You all are amazing!
What I have seen and heard from many women
is this:
There hearts our at HOME...
Just know this, that just because you have to work or want to work,
your still a keeper of the home.
Your loving touches and concerns for
each person, is what make a
House a HOME.
May you be blessed and just know that your family
will know where your heart is!
Blessings, Roxy

Everyone Says Glory...



The voice of the Lord...
Strips the forest bare;
And in His temple everyone says,
"Glory!"
Psalms29:9
A fresh glimpse of His Glory!
Be still and know
He is God.
I awoke to our first dusting of snow this morning.
It is time to be ready for shorter days,
And longer nights.
A cozy fire burning, and a longer time to spend
With the Lord and study.
I also got to check out all my favorite blogs,
and leave a comment on most of them.
I have found a sweet kinship with these
gals, seeing a part of their lives and homes.
How it must please the Father,
that we desire to be the home-keepers
 He spoke about in His Word!
I am thankful for each woman who has
inspired and encouraged me!
Thank-You
Blessings, Roxy

The Great Pumpkin

Harvest Pumpkins
 
I just love pumpkins!
And I  relish Autumn's harvest
 
When you see the amazing array of God's colors,
you can know, He loves beauty.
 
Who doesn't love a pumpkin sitting proudly on a table.
adorned with autumns leaves and pine cones.
I think decorating with the bounties that come from nature
are the sweetest.
 
Pumpkins are so good for you,
filled with rich (Beta Carotene)
 
One of my most favorite things made with pumpkin
puree is Pumpkin Bread!
 
Pumpkin soup is amazing, light and so delicious.
But let us not forget the pumpkin pie,
my hubbies very favorite.
I also make fresh whipped cream just for him!
 
Also, don't forget to roast your pumpkin seeds!
 
Next year let's all grow a larger pumpkin patch:)
 
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Psalms 34:8

Midlife Make-Over

A Cup Of Tea
 
I have now entered into the midlife kitchen make-over...
(Twilight music playing)
 
Now during this make-over no one has offered us a mini vacation,
while a whole crew comes in to do everything!
 
No,  just ourselves and our son and daughter in law,
also our oldest grandson.
 
We have the ceiling painted flat white,
 and most the walls done in bright yellow.
Sanding and painting my cupboards, a very pretty color
 called Chinking. But my island is done in a fresh
green color called Laurel.
All the side of the cabinets are done in a wains coat.
The top rail is in a satin Red color.
The style is really a French Country look.
 
This is a huge project,
 but it will be warm ,and have a cozy feeling when done!!
 
Ok, the moral of this story is this:
When in the thick of things on the first day of
this make-over. I was so exhausted and overwhelmed...
My sweet Amy brought me a cup of hot steaming
delicious Earl Gray tea, with cream and sugar.
It just about brought tears to my eyes.
I needed to be refreshed.
 
Let me encourage all of us,
We are our brothers keepers!
A cup of tea and and a encouraging word goes a long way.
 
We are blessed to have a son who can do all the precise cutting
and fixing almost everything:)
Blessings, Roxy

Needing Fellowship

Sharing
 
Life would be lonely,
If only you had no one to share it with.
 
Needing fellowship,
as much as I need air.
 
Christ is the head,
We are His body.
 
We come together,
He is in our midst.
 
Take time to love and share.
Show that you care,by actions and words.
Moments of understanding
are worth a thousand words.
 
Precious indeed,
is the understanding
of a friend.
 
Friends: a blessing to cherish for life.
 
Blessings, Roxy

Beauty in Our Homes

Autumn Flowers
 
Beauty comes from the Lord
He makes ALL things beautiful
 
Scripture tells us He makes all things new!
 
I have been praying for creative wisdom,
there are so many amazing and
beautiful things, just waiting
to be created.
 
We as woman have been given a nesting instinct.
We want to surround ourselves with beauty.
 
It can be simple and cozy,
or crisp and sleek.
But it must...
Have warmth, and be welcoming!!
 
Let authentic kindness be its main focus.
Let charity grace its rooms
Let beauty fill its halls.
 
Beauty and charm ,
comes  from a heart filled with HIM!
 
Blessings, Roxy

Room for More


 The Rolling Prairie
 

This is our backyard!
Have you ever driven through a place where
you did not see a person for miles?
 

It is really hard to believe we abort babies!
There is more then enough room.
 
 
What happened to Momma's?
Where have all the children gone?
 
We need our babies and our children!
 
Life and Liberty for ALL

Fiesta Fall

Fresh picked Anaheim Chili's

Danny's Breakfast
 
Autumn time means: Green Chili's !!
 
We go to one of the many farms in our area and we purchase
around 2 to 4 bushels.
They roast them in a huge rolling roaster bin,
and the fragrance is so unique, it makes your mouth water.
 
We bring them home with a 10lb. bag of fresh pinto beans.
Now we put them up by placing them in freezer bags,
maybe 7 per bag.
  Then put about 5 bags together in another gallon size bag.
We put them in a box and place them in our big freezer .
 
I like to put these in casseroles, and in my salsa.
I also make chili rellonos.
My hubby likes them in his omelets.
 
Now the pinto beans are the most delicious tasting beans ever,
you just rinse and soak them over night,
then you put in your crock pot and cover with water 2-3in.
Add a TB. butter (no salt)
Cook most the day till tender, then now add salt cumin spice and garlic salt.
After you have had some with your dinner,
 place extra beans in baggies or tubs and freeze.
 
Learning to buy while in season or on sale and putting back will
save you time and money.

In the house of the wise are stores of choice food
and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.
Proverbs21:20

A Mothers Heart

My daughter Ashley and Daughter in law Amy
My oldest grandchild Naomi


My precious grand daughters:
Naomi and Hannah



                       Today is a very special day!
                       It is my daughter's Birthday!
 
         I  just wanted to take some time and celebrate the amazing gifts God has given me,
 
My girls and my grand daughters.
 
I speak a blessing over each one of them that they will
be all God has placed in their hearts, and they will
be wise women, and will continue to build their houses.
 
Her children arise and call her blessed:Proverbs 31:28
 
I was thinking what words of wisdom could I speak into their lives?
Did I live my life as an example that they would want to follow?
 
If I had a single flower
for every time I think about you,
I could walk forever in my garden.
 
In raising my children, it seemed like the days lasted forever,
It was the years that went fast.
Blessings, Mother

We Are The Apple Of His Eye

Thank you for apple peelers


 
 
This fall we really made the applesauce, it was alot of work but the rewards
are worth it all.
My daughter in law Amy and I made 20 pints of applesauce,and 20 pints of apple butter. We were blessed with 4 bushels of apples. We had so many that we were able to give some away to our dear friends Pam and Steve.
 
Danny and I really love the apple butter !
I believe making your own jams and jellies are so rewarding.
 
I want to really make canning and putting back a big part of our
food pantry.  Also it looks so nice to see it on your shelves.
I know it is tempting to want to put it where everyone can see it,
but it is much wiser to put in a pantry where it is cool and dark.
For the quality and longevity will last much longer,
 if you will be careful as to how you store it.
 
We also put some up with spices and flour for apple pies,
and put them in the freezer.
 
We have plum juice made up and in the freezer, and very soon we will
be making our whole families favorite Plum Jelly!
 
Be encouraged
Be wise
Be frugal
Be prepared!!
 
Our barns shall be filled with every kind of provision.
Psalms144:13a

Boots In The Lord's Army



The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.
and he delights in his way.
Psalms 37:23
 
I love this scripture, it fills me with great peace,
and comfort.
Our Father has an amazing journey,
planned for each one of us.
 
We must keep our hearts focused and diligent.
Be careful to stay on His path.
For He is faithful
 
Our part is to keep our lives free from the distractions,
so we will be able to run our race.
As the Holy Spirit directs our steps.
 
Keep your boots strapped on dear ones,
possible rocky trails ahead.
Watch for large rocks,and pot holes.
Keep your eyes opened for bandits.
 
Just never ever give up!
 
Blessings,Roxy

Granchildren Our Inheritance

Our precious one!
 
Here is a sweet picture of our 7th grandchild.
His name is David James
He is 4 months old now.
 
I have yet to hold him in my arms,
For he lives far away from his Grandma and Papa.
 
He looks so much like his Momma when she was but a baby.
 
I know that there are many Grandma's who know the heartache
of having their precious grandchildren so far away.
 
But we as parents all know it it part of our job,
to raise our children to have roots.
Bur also to have wings to go wherever the Lord
leads them.
 
Blessings, Roxy

Unique Days



Live this Day Abundantly
 
All of our days kinda line up just like this row,
of pumpkins.
They all look alike, but they are all very different.
Look more closely!
 
May you see all there is to see.
From the rising of the sun, to it's setting in the west.
May the light of Gods word, be illuminated
for you.
 
Make sure you have enough oil in your lamps,
for today's journey.
May you go about doing,all there is to do.
And in this doing may it all be for
God's glory.
 
So as the sun sets in the west you will hear,
Well done good and faithful servant.
 
The wise virgin took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Matthew 25:4
 
Blessings, Roxy
