The Healing Benefits Of Lemon Balm Tea...

Lemon Balm Tea, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Lemon Balm Tea

I have discovered that I truly enjoy a cup of Lemon Balm Tea!
Some Herbal teas are just a bit tangy or strong; But this is mild and light!

I have been drinking it for quit a while, and I have not looked into
The benefits of drinking it. So I decided to look into it!

What I found was a pleasant surprise!

It's great for your nerves, it was once called a nerve tonic.
Helps improve your sleep patterns and quality.

Lemon balm is also believed to treat a range of medical disorders affecting the digestive tract, nervous system, and liver.

Today, lemon balm is used in traditional medicine as both a sleep aid and digestive tonic.
 Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a lemon-scented herb known for its calming and anti-inflammatory effects.

But, I am sure there can be some side effects also!

Once again, everything in moderation, including herbs and supplements.
And of course, all the different food groups!

I really think the best course of action is to know your own body!

Some foods will wreck havoc on your system,
Everyone is so different!

Getting on the bandwagon for any one thing has never been good!

A little here, a little there!

Just like caffeine, it can be really tough on your system,
But a small cup also has great benefits!

You can make any kind of tea time special!
You can make your morning coffee the catalyst to get moving!

I always have a large array of different teas and coffees,
To enjoy myself and to offer friends and family.

I also enjoy having many different designs and shapes of mugs;
And of course teacups...

Irish Breakfast Tea is one of my very favorites!

Make even the small moments special...

May you all take the time to sip your tea or coffee and enjoy your day!

Sunflowers Follow The Sun...

Sunflowers, Living from Glory to Glory Blog...

Sunflowers follow the sun...

The other morning as I was coming home very early,
I had one of those moments where you just realize something
 That has been happening for years!

These amazing wild flowers follow the sun;
Their little faces all look to the East;
As the sun comes up to brighten the whole earth
With a blazing warmth and light!

Then they turn their big, bright, happy faces slowly all day long!
Then, once in the early evening comes you will see 
They have all turned their heads to the West...

I started telling this amazing little fact to everyone;
Some people were really surprised and a few said
Yeah, I knew that!
One said an old farmer had told him that! And he thought 
He was just old and didn't know what he was talking about!
But the next day he watched and watched all day long
They did just that, turned to follow the sun.

One man told me when he leaves for work every summer morning they
Are all facing him has he drives, but as he returns home they are
Waving goodbye.

Even Nature Follows The Son. Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

I guess the point of this little story and my own revelation;
Is this...

What is going on around you that you are not even aware of?

God is working little miracles each day in our behalf.
We are seeing nature groaning for His return every season
 Even Nature Follows Follows The SON...

We all have things that will cause us to have a face that bears the struggles!
We can have worry lines upon our foreheads,
We have dark bags underneath our eyes,
We can have wrinkles around our eyes,
We can have a mouth that is turned down.

We must look to the Lord and worship Him with all our cares and worries,
Why take on a face that looks troubled and worried and worn?

 We can have a face that follows the SON...

Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in his wonderful face,
And the things of this earth will grow strangely dim
 In the light of His glory and grace.

Wake-Up sleepy heads!
Look around and see all that He is doing in your life...

Living from Glory To Glory
Down those Long country Roads...
 To all my fellow travelers, even if you never leave your HOME!

The Steps Of A Good Woman Are Ordered Of The Lord...

Your Steps Are Ordered Of The Lord, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

~Your Steps Are Ordered Of The Lord~

Some days it just seems that nothing goes according to plan!

As much as we may plan and try to get our ducks in a row!
Making a list and checking it twice;
Things have a way of going its own way and in its own sweet time!

When we finally can  realize that we are not called to be in control of everything!  
But rather to allow the flow of Gods plans and timing!

The scripture that helps me with this train of thought is this;

"The steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord"
And He delights in his way...
Psalm 37:23

By God's grace and the Holy Spirit, he directs our thoughts and affections
Of those that lean into Him!

As women we tend to think we can do it all!
But a woman after God's own heart will realize this one thing;
God holds our hearts!

I believe in the Providence of God,
So He can overrule any plan I may have made.
For I know He cares about the events of my life!

He will whisper to your heart
This is the way, walk in it.
He leads us step by step...

Being a homemaker and a wife, I have learned to be flexible;
And to trust the Lord to arrange my day; according to his plan!

"That does not mean I don't plan out my days or weeks!
But rather when I get too focused on my plan;
He will show me He has a slight detour!

As we lead our children, He will lead us!
And I have learned it's not being able to see far out into the distant future;
But rather walking it out step by step...

God steps will be according to His own will, not mine!
That is why it will delight Him.

I want my steps to please the Lord;
So each day I give my best and trust that the Holy Spirit will guide me
In all truth and to run my household in a way that pleases Him!

Enjoy the plans He may have for you!

Can you look back over any given day and see His hand and plans at work?

As Always...

One step at a time as He leads...

We Are Called To Defend Our Lentil Fields...

Defend Your Lentil Fields Ladies, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Defend Your Lentil Field

But he stationed himself in the middle of the lentil field,
Defended it and killed the Philistines.
"So the Lord brought about a great Victory"
2 Samuel 23: 11-12

A parcel of ground that is full of lentils;
 Was it worth fighting for?

We are all given a resource and we must make it last!
Each pod has only two little lentils in it!

This lovely Bible story is a great Word picture for me.
This one thing is worth fighting for dear ones;
Because the lentil field is worth life or death!

What does the lentil fields symbolism in our lives today?

The lentil field is our estate
No matter how large or humble

Your Position
Your sphere of influence!
Our marriages
Our fruitful vines
(Children and Grandchildren)
Our Health

~Stand Your Ground~

Defend your field...

He expects you to defend what He has given you.
Why- So He is given a Victory and a good return out of the field,
He has given you charge of!

That Old serpent the devil drops in and slithers through our fields to cause,
Friction, contention, dissension and division, discontentment!

To destroy or devour our goods or our lives!

Give NO place to the devil Ephesians 4:27
Place means (foothold, opportunity)

We need to watch our emotions, hurt feelings, anger, resentment.

Take a stand and don't give up...
What the Lord has given you, take care of it...
We will one day give account for how we defended His property.

The Battle is tough; But He will give you strength!

Take up the weapons of our warfare...
The Word, Prayer...

A Man Needs A Godly Helpmeet...

Bing A Godly Wife, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Being a wife is an amazing ministry; It's not something
That is going to be easy, but it's also not that hard either!

I have not lost my own identity being a wife and a mother!

I have grown from being able to help keep things running smoothly.
I do believe as a new bride I was rather strong willed;
And definitely self-centered.

We learn very early in this modern world to seek your own good.
But God has a different plan if we will just realize He wants us to have Joy!

Learning to find delight and a sense of fulfillment of what you accomplish
is a good thing,

All these works to love our husbands and children will have eternal worth!

Every load of laundry, every kind word, everything you do!
Is a good thing...
Putting your husband first is something that can bring great peace!
And trust me it really only takes a small bit of time each day.

Our modern culture has made being a godly wife silly, or unnecessary.
But, A Home, with A Woman that desires to serve her Husband and Family
Will be a Rare Treasure...

Psalm 128:3-4
"Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine
by the sides of thy house"

"A man needs a godly help meet
for earthly felicity.
He that findeth a godly wife
findeth a good thing.
A wife keeps the home,
her chief faithfulness
is in the inner of the dwelling
which she adorns.
She keeps at the home
and so keeps the home.
Fantastic blessedness 
comes from the Lord,
and to Him alone we
must look for it.
The Lord's chosen 
find rest and quietness.
They shall have peace
from the God of peace."
Charles Spurgeon

Fortified For The Day...

The Holy Bible, The Word, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Some days you can just run out of steam!
Also, I can truly say that some women just seem to have so much energy;
Compared to me at least...

But A long time ago I had to learn to resolve the issue of thinking;
Why can't I do more?

But truly once I realized that the strength I have been given each day,
Is something I need to use wisely!

Learning to relax and enjoy the day as it sometimes just rolls out!

I like to start each new day with a cup of tea or coffee and Read the Word!
I enjoy writing in my journal so I always write something daily!
Even as I have gotten older I am even reading some scripture
Before I go to bed in the evenings.

If you can do only one thing each day; make it count!
 Baking or cooking yields high dividends.

Once again it is summer here; and so I will use my crock pot!
If I am going to bake I always do that very early in the morning!
When its winter time its no big deal to turn on the oven and heat up the house
 and fill it with an aroma of freshly beaked bread or cookies.

Freshly Baked Bread, Fresh Eggs, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Wisdom to know what you can and can not do is very important!
I am not saying we should never push ourselves;
But not straining that causes discomfort and unable to do your
housework or things you love the next day!

Grow In Wisdom, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

I always like to treat myself with some rich and delicious chocolate!
Keeping a little stash of the sweet stuff works well for my needs!
Chocolate Bars, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

I no longer want to spend my energy complain about what I can't do and just
Enjoy each portion that I can do!

When you walk into your home after being gone all day,
Can you just feel and sense that this place is called Home 
Because your heart is there?

Make each day a day of rejoicing!
Give Thanks!
Don't be robbed of the pleasures of each day given to you!

Love your Home and it will bring you comfort and Joy...

Happy Day,
Always Love, Roxy

Singing In The Fire...

Singing in the Fire...

We have all heard the phrase singing in the rain;
As sweet and enduring that little phrase is,

The reality is that as we live and walk this earth till our journey ends;
We must learn to sing in the Fire...

It's so easy to sing when all is calm and the sun is shining!
It's easy to sing when everything is right in your world!
Is is easy to sing when you know the words;
But sometimes, we will not know the words or understand the circumstances,
We must sing from our hearts without knowing the harmony at times.

Good Morning
Good Day
Anyone of us may be in a different place in our days...
Our lives truly are very brief...

I now know how easy it is to slip over to the other side;
I could of died resulting from a bowel obstruction this last past week!
I guess I can now truly say "you can die from constipation"
I was very sick and I truly can say I was Blindsided!
I was in the hospital for a week.

It seems these are they very things that teach us to sing;
While in the Fire of pain, weakness, and sickness!

I can look back and can say that any trial, whether physical or emotional
Can teach us many things!

In our lives, we suddenly can be overcome from a sickness!
These things just happen as we all are living in a sin fallen world.

But, what I hope to get across today is even though these things
Can and Will happen, how can we walk through these trials?

Learn from your experience!
Try not to be fearful
Pray that you do not become bitter!
Realize everything takes time!

Everything will change!

We must never allow these trials to define us!

Every trial will have a new song, you must learn to sing!

Outside my bedroom window is a bird that sings all night long!
Even when there is no moon, even when the wind blows!

I am grateful to be alive!
I made Sunday dinner yesterday,
(Easy Beef Stew in the Crockpot)
My Son said Mother, your not making Sunday dinner are you?
And I said well I'm not dead yet!!

I so appreciate all your sweet 
Get Well Wishes on my last Blog Post;
You are all very kind and I did feel so many prayers
Lifting me UP...

Much Love;
Truly Living From Glory To Glory
And Learning To Sing In The Fire...
Hugs, Roxy

How To Be The Best House Guest...

How to be the Best House Guest, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Are You A Wonderful House Guest?

We read and talk a lot about being a wonderful hostess;
But, I think we hear very little about how to be a thoughtful guest!

Times have changed, as years ago, it seemed like there was more company.

 And I might ask when was the last time you had
Overnight guest in your home?

Do you even have a guest room, or just a comfortable space
For someone to stay in?

 This post may not interest some of you.
But, I always like to think that when, after my husband and I leave
Someones home, they will say; Now, that was a very nice visit!

The goal is for them to one day to want to invite you back!
Or to want to come visit you at some time!

You probably have all heard that saying;
"Company is a bit like fish, after three days it begins to stink"

So firstly, I will open with this thought.
Do not overstay your visiting!
Short but Sweet...

That is, even if you are just having dinner in someones home!
The host may need to get up early the next morning.

When staying overnight in someones home,
 Always let your guest be aware of how long you plan on staying.
To make sure it does not impose upon their life and plans.
Give them an idea of your schedule for what is in the plans for each day!

Ways to be a great house guest!

Be aware of their schedules.

Show some interest in their home and their design and style.
Their hobbies and their family and even their work!

Keep the bathroom clean!

Help clean the kitchen, dishes and such!

Keep the room you stay in clean and tidy, make the bed!

Help with the meals!

Buy some of the groceries!

Give the hostesses some personal space;
Everyone needs a little bit of that!

Just relax and enjoy their hospitality and home.

Leave a note thanking them! 
Or a small thank you gift!

Clean up what you have used while visiting.
(Take the sheets off the bed)

Don't forget to take some pictures!

Showing Hospitality is a wonderful thing!

It's always nice to create memories and see new places and
Spend time with old friends and even make new friends!

Do you have any tips for being The Best House Guest?

Blessings, Roxy
