Learn To Know Your Limits...

Tea Time Or a Coffee Break, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

 We Must Learn To Know Our Limits

We are all aware of Speed Limits
They are posted in plain sight along every road!
We don't have to guess at what it might be.

I think it is wise to learn to know what are personnel
limits may be in our physical strength.

Allowing yourself to get burned out daily;
Will cause havoc in your life.
Of course there will be times of a crisis where it is required!
But I believe these are times where God gives us His strength.

What I am referring to is not pushing yourself all day long.
We do need to push a little bit to get an extra chore or task done.

Living in a constant hurry up mode is not healthy!

Learning to stop and take a breather,
Allowing a coffee or tea break;
Does a body good...

The word tells us to aspire to live a quiet life!
1 Thessalonians 4:11

I must use my strength wisely,
To take care of the needs of my husband, family and home life!

We are not suppose to go go go...
We must take time to reflect and ponder.
We are just to quick to speak or to volunteer.

We are all made a bit different, and we all have different
degrees of strength levels.
That is why you must learn to know your limits!

Wisdom is a powerful tool and once we learn something;
We can apply it and be the better for it.

I know some people that can live a fast pace life,
But many more need to go at their own speed.
Being fast or the first is not as important.
As being consistent and doing a job well.

So remember resting or taking a rime to relax is very important!
Don't allow the world to dictate how fast you have to drive;
Or how much needs to be done every day.

I realize the work world will have a quota, but that is different!
I am talking about in your home and your personal time frame.

Learn to do those things that revive you!
Reading A Book
Enjoying a Good Movie
Working on A Craft
Praying With Someone
Taking A Little Nap

Then you will have a better outlook and can carry on!

So rest and refresh yourself as often as your body needs it!

Once again sharing what I am learning.

Blessings, Roxy

You Can Be A Proverbs 31 Woman At Any Age...

 Proverbs 31 Woman, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Hold On! You Can Do This With Grace

~In her hand she holds the distaff and grasp the spindle with her fingers~


Hymn to a Good Wife

10-31 A good woman is hard to find,
and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve,
and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously
all her life long.
She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
and enjoys knitting and sewing.
She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
and brings back exotic surprises.
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for her family and organizing her day.
She looks over a field and buys it,
then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,
rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work,
is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,
diligent in homemaking.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need,
reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows;
their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing,
and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things,
but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Adorn her life with praises!  Message Version

Strength and Dignity Are Her Clothing

Remember She Always Speaks With Kindness...

Remember Charm can mislead and beauty fades!

Learn to shop for your best deals and price.

Always organize your day

(Just do Something)

You don't have to sew your own clothes;

But get dressed for your work day;

"But look nice"

Ask YOURSELF

Can others trust you?

Hold your tongue, just because you thought it,

Does not mean you should say it!

She opens he mouth with wisdom,

and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue!

~Let your words be like honey, for you may have to eat them~

"The woman to be admired and praised

May we all strive to be this kind of woman at every stage of life.

Looking For The Beauty In Life...

 

Red Birds, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Looking For The Beauty In Life

We are all living in days of trials or untraveled territory.

It may be a personal trial or it may be sickness.

But the truth is everyone is being tested!

Trials and pain are just apart of being alive.

But there is just something about those special ones that just stick out!

They just seem to handle difficulties better and keep a sense of composer.

When I was a young woman I would pray this prayer;

Lord as I grow old help me to not be old and cranky.

I want people to say that old lady is so sweet!

So how do we become sweet little old people?

We have trials and pain and disappointment,

So we can learn to rely on Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit!

We become less self-centered and more Christ centered.

Our face will relax and our smile lines will increase.

Why because we are being pruned to look at the beauty in life!

And this something you have to earnestly look for in your days.

This just means that storms will come,

But after the dark clouds recede we will see the beauty in the

 stark brilliance of His provision and the testing.

Remember this is not the New Heaven Or Earth!

Joy comes in those little simple things...

Seeing a beautiful bird in a leave less tree.

Seeing a smile returned even with a mask on your face.

Seeing the provisions of Gods hand.

Seeing a sunrise or a sunset

Seeing an elderly couple who has been married for years,

Still holding hands...

~Open your heart and your eyes and you will see beauty~ 

Onward and Upward

How To Sew Little Hearts ...


Sewing Little Hearts, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

A Little Sewing Makes The Heart Happy

Wanted to share a little craft you can make and give through out the year!

This craft is super easy and inexpensive.
Using up little scraps of fabric is a great way to be frugal.

I like making these so they are available so
 I can tuck them into any packages to my friends or family!
A little added bonus that they can remember me by.
Plus they look so cute, and you can hang them anywhere!

All you need is
 A heart shape pattern you cut out
Scraps of fabric, or you can buy what you really like
Scissors
Fiberfill for the stuffing
Ribbon or lace for hanger
Little ribbon flowers or buttons
Glue for adding flowers or buttons



I did sew mine on my sewing machine,
 but you could sew it also by hand!

You could also make these out of felt material,
And you would do a stitching by hand around it.

So cut out your pattern
Pin pattern onto material
Cut heart out.

Sew both pieces right side out but leave a little gap to add your stuffing!
(Don't fill it really full)
Sew up the little gap

Now hand sew on your lace hanger or ribbon
Glue on a button or flower.
Ta Da
You now have a heart to keep or give away!

Keeping a small project to work on can help you stay creative;
And keeps your hands busy!

I like to pray while working on these kinds of projects,
They can inspire you and keeps you calm.

I have always loved seeing pictures of a homemaker sitting
In a chair and working on a sewing project.

Find peace and joy in the small things!

Blessings, Roxy

~Let me know if you try this sweet little craft sometime~

How To Make Each Morning Beautiful...

Making Each Morning Beautiful, Living From Glory To Glory Blog
 


Every Morning Is A New Day To Make It Beautiful...

I think we can all relate to this idea;

Because I find my self by the end of each day feeling exhausted,

A bit overwhelmed and spent.

So when I have completed all that I possible could do in that day.

My day is done and I need to stop and do something to relax my heart and mind!

Having a bedroom that is clean and uncluttered and clean sheets,

May help in getting a good nights rest...

If we have not learned to shut out the world's noise and confusion,

And to relax our brains it can be a problem!

Learning to let go and allow yourself to sleep without worry!

I know its easy to say, but truly if you have been alive long enough,

You know worry changes nothing!

So this little post is about starting each new day when you open 

Your eyes is to aspire to make this day beautiful!

Each day as we all know will have challenges, but how we react to them

Is totally in our ability to respond well!


How to make each day beautiful is as unique as each reader is;

We all have the ability to say kind things to others.

To be able to ignore someone causing friction.

We can make our kitchen table look lovely and inviting.

We can ignore our phones every time the ding.

We can work on some craft or a special meal preparation.

We can stop listening to news.

We can look for little ways to make our lives pretty.

We can enjoy a cup of tea and look through a magazine.

We can pamper ourselves!

We can concentrate on new ideas for rearranging a room

 or changing out some furniture.

Sometimes it is as easy as a bookcase or a picture.

I believe if we will make an effort God will supply the energy and creativity!

~Read~ Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,

 whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-

If anything is excellent or praiseworthy-

~Think about such things~

~Truly the state of your thinking can make your day beautiful~

Blessings, Roxy

Social Media Or Finding Better Things To Do With Your Time...

 Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


It is so much better for your heart and HOME,

To do something beautiful and productive.

Warning: If you spend to much time on your phone,

Or computer you just may wind up being unaware

 of what's really going on in your life...


I have had the sudden urge to throw my phone across the room;

For no apparent reason other then its a distraction.

Yet, we are looking at it at all times, all day long!

You can't even leave it in another room!

Most people carry it in their back pocket!

What we can do on our phones is ridiculous

We can watch movies, watch YouTube videos, we can write Emails

send messages, send quick texts!

Listen to music,

Twitter accounts, Facebook...

We receive pictures and calls through these devices.

But, suddenly they have become the instrument of censorship!

They know who you know

They know what you watch and listen to!

They have a trail of everything!

They have decided what is expectable...

For not only you but us as a nation!

Freedom of speech is no longer free;

It will cost you something!

Let's face it...

We got a huge problem!


I have heard so many people being kicked of every platform.

We know have Facebook jail;

Our phones were suppose to be a device to communicate.

Not spy on us and take away our right to listen to someone;

We might even find a personal picture taken off our phones!

Who is storing what???

Social Media is it a friend or foe???

Can we overcome our addiction to fake news and propaganda?

I doubt it...

It's on the internet, so it must be true!

Use your head and be careful in the day the earth stood still

Learning To Simplify Your Life...

Simplify Your Life... Living From Glory To Glory Blog

                                                                             

I do believe we are all in the class room of learning to simplify;

When we stop to think about what really matters it's easily condensed,

To a few things...

We have all learned to do less, go less, and yet we are better for it!

It is a great thing to happy and content with the portion God has given you!

You would never be happy with what the world can give!

Firstly, because it's fleeting!!

No one takes their stuff to heaven or hell.


Being quiet and at home is a pleasant place if you turn each room,

Into a Haven of simple and clean, organized beautiful abundance!

We all really have so much in regards to things.

I enjoy cleaning and making each little corner of my home pleasant.


Take some time each day and thank God for His provisions.

Then go about arranging and using what you have!

Remember He wants you to feel His love and enjoy His provisions!


Learning the fine art of gratefulness and using your talents is a must!

I never want to be the one who buries his talents.

We are to use our fine china plates and pretty vases.

Pull out the stash of goodies in those tubs and rearrange a room!

Find ways to change out your curtains, Try covering end tables with those

Beautiful lace doilies or pretty fabrics...

Encourage yourself through prayer and reading the Word;

Then encourage those in your family. and close friends!

May your spirit, soul and body prosper.

And may you put forth the effort in making your house a HOME

To have a gentle quiet spirit is a good thing...

And when your HOME is in order you can think clearly!

Turn off the news and make a simple, yet tasty dinner!

~Pray for those who are suffering, those prayers are heard~

Never Give Up

Your HOME is a reflection of your heart!!

Blessings, Roxy

Stay On The Right Road...

Stay On The Right Road... Living From Glory To Glory Blog

 ~Stay On The Right Road~


We must learn to  be able to know when its time to take a break!

I felt very strongly that our country was in an uproar about everything.

In the last few months, so I chose to be quiet!

And I personally was fighting Covid and was very sick.

I don't l care to share all the details, but I can assure you it was dire.

Many times the Lord will allow you to stop in your tracks;

Many can continue to go on as if nothing like a world Pandemic has hit.

Much like a two time decimated Hurricane to hit a small underdeveloped country.

But really we can't take it all in and we are really not suppose to...

These are times that must be fulfilled,

Yet we must stay close to home and pray and overcome the onslaught.

I have never been so comforted and filled with peace as I stand!

I am very sensitive to things that cause unrest;

So I usually will draw close to the Lord and rest and pray.

One of the reasons we are to make our homes and families  a refuge,

Is because there are very few safe harbors in a world of unrest!

Some people are never bothered by much;

But I do believe we are seared and unaffected

 because we have been conditioned.

Many are called to cry out for justice!

But there is only one righteous judge

The wheat is growing along side the tares;

Only God can distinguish the difference between the two!

You can no longer befriend the apostates;

You can be kind and yet we are told to not even have a meal with them.

But wait we are suppose to love and except every wayward way of thinking?

I think no...

Narrow is the way

Broad is the road that leads to destruction.

I am not sure what the future holds;

But I do know who holds the future...

Take these days and hide yourself under His wings!

Comfort and Joy only come a heart fully given to Christ!

Blessings, Roxy
