Do You Have The Right To Say What You Think...


I Say What I Think, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

I Say What I Think

There are many people that think and boast that this a fine quality!
They call this being honest, and feel they have the right to fling words,
around like they were spreading fertilizer on their spring grass.
With no thought of whom they might wound or harm...
Did you know that even fertilizer can kill a wild grass or a tender new shoot?

Saying what you think can be downright cruel!
Our thoughts and words are not to be used as a reckless means of communications!
Be mindful of the words you speak;
Be not like the lion seeking to whom he may devour!

There are ways to say and speak our minds, with tack!
And also will bring a sweet balm...

We have no right to leave a trail of;
Bad Humor
Jealousy
Critical Words
Miserable with oneself

Speaking our evil thoughts and hurtful words!
Beware...

I have heard it said, I have earned my right to speak my mind!
NOT TRUE

We are told to grow in wisdom and grace.

I grieve when I remember a few times when a women spewed her mind,
(And they said; "what's her problem")

Her problem is this;
She is mad, has not learned self control, is abusive with her words!

Learning to take every thought captive is what I desire to accomplish!
Even if it requires biting my tongue!

Because bitter words, never produce good!

Words lovingly and softly spoken will bring a better outcome!

Sometimes, this is just not always easy;
This is why it is important to be well rested and eating well,
So you do not become a grumpy person!

As always sharing with you what I am learning or have learned the hard way!
Hugs...

Do You Allow Your Struggles To Define You...

Living Life, Living from glory To Glory Blog...


~What Defines You~

I have seen so many people who have gone through a struggle;
And they are having such a hard time with it,
And they have become the struggle...

What happens is everything is on the timeline of the struggle.
Trust me, I know this to be true in my own life;
And I have seen it consume the life of many.

Look the struggle does not ever go away;
Even if you get through this struggle, another one is on its way!
I have always loved the scripture that Joy comes in the morning!

Because if you will take each day in the struggle and purpose,
In your heart to live life even if you're dying or very sick.

Look mortality rate in at about 100%

But, I figure if I am going to live my days out;
I have purposed in my heart to pray to not allow anything
That is bad to define me.

I have learned the hard way to not burden everyone else with my woes!
I share with only a few people that we have the love and privilege
To help one another, but even then after a while it will become a weariness!

Each day is a new day with the chance to have a new beginning!
As humans we get a picture of what we hear and read in our heads.
I do not want to be known for my woes and sickness or troubles!

So even in my stage of life I want to be a joy to be around;
Not my woes and pain or struggles!


We all have them and as a Christian it has seemed to be a battle going on!
But if there was no battle we would not have any victories!!


Please pray about this word of wisdom;
I wrote it to encourage you!!

Do Not Allow The Battle To Define YOU...
Do Not Allow Fear To Define YOU


~MAY THE TRUTH OF GOD DEFINE YOU~

As Always...
Hugs and a Blessing to each of you that may read this letter!

Learning To Adjust And To Wait While In Transition...

Yellow Rose, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Sometimes we will find ourselves in the middle of two seasons.
Then again we will find ourselves in the middle of two situations.

Many times we will not have an immediate transition;
But rather a slow process...

It gives us a chance to adjust
We learn patience, as we wait for the completion.

We will find ourselves in the process of waiting most our days!

When we are in the end days of winter, we can hardly wait for Spring!
When we are in the dog days of Summer, we look forward to winter!

Adapting to change is a powerful witness!
We will say as good Christians;
God's timing is perfect...
But are attitude and actions speak a different story.

There are ways to make the best of our time and response to
all the waiting we will do in our lifetime!

Time to be born and a time to die...

Firstly, we must pray, look to your Father and tell Him your concerns!

Take the opportunities given to say something that holds truth!

Stop complaining...
Lord, set a guard over my mouth!

Find peace in staying put, till God moves you!

When I leave the house, I take along a pretty bag;
Keep this bag, by your purse!
Content Ideas
 Note cards to write little encouragement cards.
Keep a good book or magazine in your bag.
Always have a snack of nuts or power bars to eat.
(When you're hungry you can get Hangry) (Hungry) (Smiles)
Keep bottled water in your bag.

I  always try to be prepared to wait...

Are You In The Process Of Change?
Have You Learned To Wait Well?

Blessings,
Always...

Redemption...

The Cross, Living from Glory To Glory Blog...


Redemption

In Him we have redemption through His blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
Ephesians 1:7

Redemption in Christ because His blood is the ransom price,
that was paid!

The work of Christ by which we are freed from eternal separation,
from Him and eternal life and glory.
And to be able to repent and ask for forgiveness of our sins!

Please remind yourself that coloring eggs, chocolate bunnies,
And a feast prepared is not the focal point!

But, rather believing in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ!
He Is Alive...




Spring Flowers, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Wishing you all a pleasant and beautiful Springtime!
And all that makes life beautiful...

Why it is so important to grasp hold of the powerful reason,
God gave us seasons...
We would be uninspired if all days and months were the same.

As Jesus arose from the dead,
 We can see new life all around us each spring time!

Make each day special
Encourage someone
Be a ray of sunshine towards another
Preach the Gospel by the way you live your life...


Bunnies to sew, Living from glory to glory blog...

I enjoyed making a couple springtime bunnies for my 
decor along side a springtime platter.

It is truly the little things that make a difference;
And it is usually the little things that people remember us for!

Bigger and more expensive is just that
Big and Expensive

~Small and meaningful goes a long way~

Blessings;

Concept And Reality...

Beauty, Living From glory To Glory Blog...


Concept and Reality

Life is filled with this very dilemma;

Let me explain what I mean, when I look at this phrase.
~Concept And Reality~

There is these amazing ideas (I will call the concept)
Then when I go for the gusto, in these concepts,
 this funny thing will happen (I will call the reality)

Examples

Lets buy a camper and explore our great state CONCEPT
We almost go off a very steep cliff
 (imagine The movie Cliff Hanger) REALITY

Lets get some lovely fake nails CONCEPT
They look great for a few days, till you realize there a pain,
Then you try to remove them and you ruin your real nails. REALITY

Really I could go on for many more examples;
But I will spare you...

Truly this is a a real thing that happens to us all!

Look, I want beauty and adventure like the next gal;
But I have learned to sometimes hold back and look at each
decision with a bit more depth of cause and effect.

That's why even commercials spend what they spend to draw us in.
I watched this infra commercial last night that had this little
air spray gun for applying your face make-up!
I would have all my flaws covered and I would look 10 years younger!
~CONCEPT~

I kid you not, I wanted it so bad and it was only $19.95.
But, I could only envision spraying it in my eye and looking like 
a zebra in streaked lines all over my face.
and looking like I was having a very bad make-up day
~REALITY~

So there you have it;
 I am trying to be better in making decisions and choices!

I could write a book on this very subject.

If I have learned one thing in my life it is this...
There is a huge difference in the way things go in the real world;
My concept
And the real reality...

We laugh and yet we learn that things are not always as they seem!

Learn, and Live and Laugh
Life is to short not to try a few new things,
Just don't be to disappointed when it doesn't work out...

Living from Glory to Glory
And living from concept to reality

Listen For The Bird Song In A Season Of Affiction...





Bird Song

I am so happy to be hearing the first spring songs being sung from
some very happy birds within our yard!

I have been so needing some cheer!

If their is one thing,I am so blessed to have and to be able to give;
Well, it's encouragement!

There are so many different ways we can encourage others.
And as we know we can even encourage ourselves in the Lord!

Have you learned yet to sing when in a trial?
Or when adversity hits right between the eyes?
Have you learned to sing in the fire?

I believe this day that we have a choice;
I have not always made the best choice on some rough days.
But, glory to God, I get a chance to do it right today.

Do you feel that you are a square peg?
Well, I know that I am so different as each of you are!
The enemy always tries to take our peace;
But, we know that if your a round peg, you will fit right in!

Don't give up, plod on and lean in to what is good and holy!
Don't buy the wares of a world that is perishing.

Make time to listen for the birdsong that is singing this fine day...
Have you stopped to be in the moment of praise and a thankful heart?

Are you just going through the motions in this season?
Well, if that is all you can do, hang on!
For remember JOY comes in the morning!

Once you come through the trial or season of affliction;
I can say this one thing;
You will be more humble and filled with a new wonder.

When you go through trials and just live a long life
YOU LEARN

What will you do with this knowledge?

Choose to be an encourager to others...
Stand For The Truth...
Take pleasure in the simple things...
Read the Psalms...
Be content with WHAT you have;
Trust the Word,
 money will not buy you love, or contentment...

Whatever my lot, the Lord has taught me to say;
~It Is Well With My Soul~

Growing in Grace
Praying For Mercy
Living From Glory To Glory

I appreciate each and everone of you that take the time to read
This blog, that has been a joy to write and share from my heart!

Thank You...

Keep Your Private Cares To Yourself...

When you feel like giving up, LOOK UP... Living from glory to glory blog...

Everything seems large and unmovable...

But, On the bright side some things are meant to be unmovable!

Have you or a loved one been tried in your body or emotions this last season?

When we are tried from every side;
We can only go up!

We all feel like giving up once in awhile;
But it is a fleeting thought because we are able to change,
Our thoughts go in the direction we tell them to go in a way that lifts us up.
~This is called self-control~

I have learned so much in these last few months!

May I share a few of them with you?

Keep your private cares to yourself and spouse and a very few trusted friends!

Never give in to the lies of the enemy!
~The only way you know if it is a lie is by knowing what the Word says~

Be your own advocate in health matters, social matters
~Remember, you know yourself better than anyone~

Do not allow a problem or issue define who you are!
~Thanks for those wise words, dear friend~

Beware of all the health craze diets;
Trust me it can cause much harm, eat sensibly;
~All things in moderation~

You do not have to be friends with everyone you know!

Be kind to yourself...

When things get stormy make up a Battle plan;
~This will help you so much~

I want to add one more thought here on a completely different subject;
I had a very dear older lady friend that told me that it
Is becoming very apparent that the woman no longer desire or care to learn
How to be a Titus 2 women.
~Now that does grieve my heart~

Blessings, Roxy

Having A Faithful Friend Is Becoming A Rare Treasure...


Safety First, Friendships, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Three...

Remembering to enjoy the company of others.

I think having good friends is very healthy!
We were created for fellowship...

When I was much younger, I had many so called girlfriends!
But my family was always front and center;
Yet, so many drifted away.

Do you find that maybe you are staying closer to your family unit?
Having a faithful friend is becoming a rare treasure.

What has changed?
Technology tells us we are more connected!
My heart tells me this is not so...

My Husband's place of business stresses this motto
"Safety First"

We must look at this for our homes also;
Opening the door to strangers has proven to be unsafe.

So maybe as I look at with whom I may fellowship with
Is getting smaller...
~The circle of trust~

Have you ever encountered a con man or women?

Well, let's just say that this is what they do.

"A man who cheats or tricks someone by gaining their trust

  Persuading them to believe something that is not true."

 I am not a suspicious person;
But let's just say being alone is better than opening
Your heart and home to something that is not true!

Will you be diligent and watchful?
Just because they seem so nice;
Cover your loved ones with prayer
Asking for discernment in their lives!

Be The Rare Treasure Today...

As Always, Because He Lives;
I can Face Tomorrow...
All Fear Is Gone

Living From Glory To Glory
Together As He Leads
