How Important Is It To Be Content...

Be Content, Cranberry Vintage Lamps, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Be Content

We have all known people who all their lives are discontent.
They are never satisfied with where they are in life's seasons
Or what they have acquired in their lives.

Never enjoying the time that they are living in!

There is a tension of wanting adventure, but desiring the familiar!

But we can spend our whole life never feeling like we fit in;
Or never doing that one big thing!
A chance of a lifetime, but you secretly are glad!

I think at times that a few are called to wander and do the daring things.
But once again, I may watch it on television, but to climb huge rocks,
 Or dive off a cliff, or ski the swiss alps.

Well, my adventure is quite tame in comparison.
But being a daredevil is not my forte.
I prefer the quiet space and listening to nature in the quiet.

Being a homemaker has allowed me to enjoy the peaceful life..

I am not sure how much longer I can think of things to say too
Ladies that desire to be at home...

It can become lonely if you always need to be stimulated.
But if you enjoy a peaceful home and can take pleasure,
In having simple and nutritious meals, and a clean home.
And a few close friends that will be your friend for all your days.

Being a wife and a mother and knowing it is the highest calling!
You have learned to be content...

I ask the Lord often, Keep me in that secret place,
Give Your Angels charge over me!

If your tired and worn down, take a break.
Revive yourself with God's Word
Speak life to yourself!
Quote scripture...

As you age as a saint of God's chosen (His Elect)
It will get harder, not easier;
Because the Devil knows His time is short...

A Fully Mature Peach In The Making...

Maturity not Rebellion, Living from Glory To Glory Blog...


~Peaches~

 They can be so delicious when they are picked fresh and when they are fully ripened.

Everything in Season

Sometimes when we try to eat something that is not fully matured;
As we might say "green"
We will  be very disappointing, as it will be hard and tasteless.

This is where patience has its perfect work...

When we do things out of season we will not be able to enjoy its full potential.
Fruit is only one example of being mature.

What does being mature look like?
What qualities might it have?

Now. Look, I am not talking about peaches here.

Being mature is something that develops over time!
Learning and desiring maturity seems like we are having a crisis,
Why, would you not want to be mature?

We all start out as children and not knowing much;
But over time if we will watch and wait and desire to learn.
We can become wise and mature in things.

We have too many know it all and very few teachers on one hand,
Then again we have way too many supposedly teachers, and no students.

"Don't tell me what to do"
Don't even suggest it!

Does that sound a little bit like rebellion?
Did I rebel as a child?
Yes, rebellion can be an outward act, or an inward attitude.

Look, if I am going to want to eat a peach, this is what I want.
A mature one that is juicy and delicious,
A peach that is grown mature, no longer green.
And so I may have to wait for a little longer!

As each day passes, we have the responsibility to mature.
Learning how to do things well, and consistently.

I wanted to learn how to play the piano, I needed a teacher.

I had a dear friend teach me the basics and now I am trying to learn on my own.
(Having a good teacher or student is hard to find)

Take the time to learn, be patient with those you are teaching.
Life is a give and take process...

Righteousness will have its perfect work...
But rebellion will leave you ignorant and not useful to anyone.

So if someone might call you a good peach;
That in my opinion is a compliment!

As Always,
Living From Glory To Glory

Reflect And Grow Content...

Mental glider, Living from glory to glory blog...


Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me?

Random thoughts that were profound to me!

Everyone will go at their own speed.
Trust is something that must be earned.
Fear is an ugly emotion.
Your heart really can feel broken.
Priorities are something a wise person will implement.
Strength is from the Lord.
The cycle of being born and dying is hard to perceive.
A wise woman will stop and contemplate; but not for too long,
As she will become sad and melancholy...
We are told to plod on, I feel like a race horse at times and other times;
I have been put out to pasture.

Desire to make your life a haven; as it is the only place we have
The right to pursue happiness!

I choose to be kind, to enjoy the little things!
Look for the best in others!
Enjoy the home and family and friends that have been given to me!

Reflect and inspire yourself.
Never throw in the towel.
Give yourself room to grow and to heal.
Some people come into your life for a short time.
Look for what is beautiful.

Life will throw you a curve ball;
No worries God saw it coming.

What was that??

You will not understand everything that happens to you;
Or to those you love...

The pain will get your attention!

Concept; then there is the reality.

Another day, another chance!

Every day can be a gift if you will just unwrap it slowly and savor it!

Don't Use That Tone Of Voice With Me...

Kind Words, The Tone Of Our Voice, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


I can remember my Mother saying to me;
You better change your tone little girl!

I probably had my hand on my hip giving my opinion!

Well, I would like to think I have come a long way baby.
But sadly at times I can still see that attitude in me;
Even if it's in a more subtle way.

I remember having my own little girl and at times she would open her mouth;
And some of the things that came out;
Truly most of them were the truth, just not done respectfully.
As we say out of the mouths of babes.
They can be so forthright...
Like wow, what a big nose you have
Phew, you stink
You're fat

As her mother, I was mortified and embarrassed!

But as an adult  in our marriage and even with our Heavenly Father,
We can have our hand on our hip and use that tone of voice;
And not realize how disrespectful we truly are being.
And that condescending tone is so not considered a gentle quiet voice.

I so wish all my words could be...
~A Sweet Smelling Aroma~

Did you ever get your mouth washed out with soap?
Well, I did!

And I am glad I did!!

I want my tone and words to be a fragrant scent!
This is not easy in a world that needs to have devices that take out all
The nasty words and all the swearing.

We can all have a fragrant scent if we will allow the Word of God;
To penetrate our hearts and cleanse our mouths!

 One thing that has helped me it this;

~Rejoice Always~

1 Thessalonians 5:16

When I am rejoicing, and not having my hand on my hip (smiles)
I can stop the tone of being proud and self-righteous.


Again, I say, Rejoice

When my Mother told me to change my tone; I did it real quick...

May we get a lesson today about this;
Change your tone, watch the body language.
Hand On Hip
Pointing the Finger
Words that are not nice...

As always, Remember your tone speaks volumes!

Hugs, Roxy

What Doesn't Kill Me Makes Me Stronger...

Norman Rockwell Painting, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

What doesn't kill me makes me stronger.

Every Morning when I sit at my desk to read my Bible;
I see this picture and quote in this frame to remind me...

"When I was a little girl I think I may have looked just like this little girl"
I usually get a good laugh and a big smile when I read it!

The reason she is smiling because she finally has had enough!
You might ask; Enough what?

When life or people try to quench the joy or make fun of you;
For being old fashion and just a homemaker...

If you are working within your own home
 And your Husband,
Loves and supports you and It pleases the Lord;
We can more then overcome!


There is a time to defend oneself and your family!

We live in a world where the bullies can do as they please and say as they please.


But, I can see where in my life I did stand and prevailed;
Victory has been the outcome!

Everyone will have different battles, but some things are just,
Worth fighting for...

Most battles will be fought within your own homes.
But if you will keep steadfast and stay the course,
You will win the prize!

Sometimes the prize is 
 An overcoming attitude.
Having a home where peace reigns!

A happy marriage.
A home that is filled with laughter!

You will become stronger if you will just say no;
For all the things that are negative and against God's plan for the home!

You are getting stronger; as you take care of what the Lord
Has given you...

Hugs, Roxy

Teach Me To Manage This Household...

 
Vintage Blue Coffee Pot... Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


~Teach Me To Manage This Household~

We all must learn to manage different things;
For many different reasons, but the main reason is to be able
To know how things function and work!

To be accountable, to be in charge, administer; to run; Control,
Lead govern and rule.
I personally like to have my husband hold this part of managing our home.

But I also have a very important part and place for keeping
Our home in a proper functioning place that runs well!

My favorite words to describe managing my household are these words;
Guide, Preside Over, Direct, Oversee.

I think we all love the idea of a well managed home'
We do not like it when chaos reigns!

That is why I believe we like to read and look at magazines that
Show and portray homes that are lovely and organized.
Martha Stewart is not the only one who can manage a household!


Here are just a few suggestions and comments;

Making ends meet financial for your home is so important!
Do not spend more than you make...
Using a list to organize what needs to be done daily, and weekly.

Firstly, may I suggest that you always make yourself ready
Hair, face and smell sweet!
Make your bed!

"Now, I can promise you this, they will expect dinner"
Get a dinner going early in the morning...
Thaw out your meat or bake a dessert, wash veggies!

Look for ideas often to better learn cleaning tips!
Keep the laundry going, so it does not overwhelm you!

Trust me,
 I do not clean all the time, But I do keep my kitchen clean and tidy!
My bed has clean sheets weekly!

Learn to make small, quick, inexpensive meals!
Buy the staples on sale.
Order online, so you have no impulse buying!



Sometimes we must weather the storms that life will bring our way!
And if your home usually runs efficiently,
 You may not be thrown too far off track!

I think that we all can use advice from others no matter our age;
Or season of our lives and our family dynamics.

Share any advice you might want to with other ladies in the comments.

Always learning...
Love, Roxy

How To Work From Home For Christ...


Working For Christ From Home, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

~Homework For Christ~

What I personally love is being able to work for Christ 
Right within my home...

I must admit that every single day I can find so many things,
That I can do from home and for my home and family;
That it keeps me busy and out of the worlds sight.

Being at home has taught me so many things;
I can serve the Lord with greater clarity and quietness.

Too many women can find themselves worried that they,
May not be doing kingdom work.
But working for Kingdom ministry outside the home or in the spotlight
 Are taking many women away from home.

We must not fret or worry about not finding time;
For outside work, or a public ministry.
Homework for Christ can be much more appealing and appropriate.

The work of Christ is not all found in the things we do in Church.

It has taken many years to realize that what I do in my home,
Is a powerful witness to a world that longs for love and peace.

Many women, once they raise their children will have more time;

But for me it seems I have less energy or time.
So I still focus on my own home.

I like to think that whatever I set my hand to do;
I do all in Christs name.

Let my toil of each day bring grace and a sweet home!
May my prayers cover my home
May the meals I prepare be filled with love
May kindness grow up like a well watered flower garden

The place I want to be "Sactuary of Home"
Good works done in faith...

Unselfish toils within your home may be unseen;
But never un-noticed by those that live there or may come to visit!

I am still a work in progress, but I know that as I strive to do
The homework He has given me, I will take each day and carry
My list of things to do, To the Lord in Prayer...

Blessings, Roxy

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...

Tea Time, Irish Breakfast... Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

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!

Hugs, Roxy
