A Picture To Inspire Me...

Living from Glory to Glory Blog


Sugar and Cream

Sugar and spice and all things nice

I can truly say that having a few lovely pictures in my files can inspire me!
I think being inspired to write or cook or decorate come often through,
A timely word or a picture or a recipe that makes my mouth water.

I love simple and clean and for things to scream;
Sugar and Cream
Even a plain cup of coffee can become a liquid treat.

We all have another week filled with opportunities before us!
I try to treat each day as a new clean slate;
Spiritually and in the natural!

We can create a masterpiece...

I plan on making a new large batch of granola.
I plan on cleaning the very messy plastic Tupperware cupboard.
All the furniture needs a good dusting with a lemon oil.
My kitchen floor needs a mopping or
 A good scrub on my hands and knees.

I have some lovely Barn photos that need to be cropped;
For a future gift idea.

I can feel the shifting of the sun upon my days.
Sometimes in the late afternoons, I can sit at my kitchen table
And feel the sun beat upon my back.
I need the warmth and the deep feeling of contentment.

We as women long for the deep peace and strength;
That only a heart changed by the Lord!
A HOME that says I am loved!
Children that have been given to us to love and nurture!
A creative heart that loves to create!
God gave us rainbows and a sun;
Blue skies and clouds.

Take the moments of each day this week and
Give thanks for what you have in your hand...

In reading this blog or others you might visit this day or week;
Do you find yourself more inspired to be a better wife, or Mother?
Do you feel a creative heart to cook and clean?
Do you feel you wasted your time?

I remind myself of this;
"Your days are numbered"
May I live them well...

So may I add the sugar and cream please...

  1. I am always inspired here and never feel like I am wasting my time. I do love my home and doing the special things for family and friends...things that turn a house into a home.

    However, I will take my coffee black but I could take the creamer and sugar set with me! xo Diana

  5. This was a lovely blessing to me Rox, I was just needing an encouragement to be reminded of the joy, peace opportunities of what I have in my hand. I was actually just praying about it, and then I read this. What a blessing. So this morning I am going to look at my clean slate and be ready to write something good onto it. Have a great week. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement.
    Love and blessings,
    Pam

  6. I only just discovered your blog a couple of days ago. I do not feel my time was wasted reading this. I too give thanks for all I have been blessed with knowing that it is temporary. The verse is one I say on a regular basis, as well as "as my days are, so my strength shall be." Blessings.

  7. Some very deep thoughts here today... I saw a pin today that was a welcome sign of sorts..."Welcome to Our Home," it said..."We hope you feel cozy and loved." I might have wished it said one thing more..."because you are." Now that is a lofty goal and I think it is one of yours!

  9. Treating each new day as a clean new slate both physically and spiritually is something I love to do and I see this practice as Biblical, after all God's mercies are new every morning! God does not want us to live with regret and I do my best to not look back at what I didn't accomplish yesterday but rather what I can do today with His help. And oh yes, pictures can inspire us. I have an Italian cookbook on loan from the library at the moment. The photos and descriptions of family life at home where cooking is always a pleasure and the family table is so important have given me a new zeal for cooking today. I just had to make bread after browsing the pages!

  10. I am always inspired here and reminded of the "calling" we have as wives and mothers and how we can glorify God through these roles
