Beware Of Empty Conversations...

Light Upon Our Words, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Empty Conversations

I have been thinking a lot about the time I use every day in my
conversations. Now, that being said, what I am thinking is this.

Are my words in my conversations considered;
Shining sparkles of truth and joy?
Is what I am hearing from others considered worth repeating?

There are many people who talk incessantly and never say anything worth repeating.

We need to ask ourselves if our conversations are built on
Empty, idle words, not even worth remembering.

We all know of at least one person that just talks and talks!

But when you walk away or hang up the phone;
Do you feel comforted?
Do you feel like a word of encouragement had been given?
Can you repeat what you have heard?
Was the conversation considered noble or good?

Life is short and the days are even shorter;
So may we all be mindful of our conversations!

We all laugh over the quote
Blah, Blah, Blah!

But truly are we doing the same thing?
Do we just talk to hear ourselves?

May our words be few,
 But chosen like a beautiful ripe piece of fruit
Or flowers that smell heavenly!
If our words cannot equate to a bowl of luscious fruit!
Or make a lovely banquet of flowers.
Be still and ask the Lord for His Words!

Blessings To All Of You;
May This Letter Inspire You To Use Your Words Well!
For as always I desire to live from Glory To Glory

Hugs, Roxy

What Kind Of Mother in Law Are You? What Kind Of Daughter in Law Are You?

What Kind Of Mother In Law Are You, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

What kind of Mother in law did you have?

I feel very strongly that so many women have missed out;
On one of the most valuable relationships!

Why do these relationships from both the son in laws or daughters,
Turn so sour and hateful anymore!

To allow the enemy to rob us of another member into our families;
from either the parent or child that has gotten married!
This is so rampant anymore!
I have heard so many young ladies say that their Mother in laws 
are just so mean and terrible to them!
Undermining them, and their child's choice of a spouse.
Then the child is torn between loyalty to one's wife or mother or father.
We are told to leave and cleave, but not to cut one's heart out!

Does this all stem from our selfish, controlling motives?
Like a two year old that will not share!

Now, grant you there are a few of these relationship's that looked
good and healthy, but once they married, Then the wolf appeared!

So many have identity crisis, and have come from broken homes!
Many look upon the Mother or Father as old fashion!
They are afraid we will take some of their children's affection away!

Controlling and causing an uproar at every opportunity!

The pain and sorrow that these individuals have cost a God fearing mama's heart!

It's shameful...

Let me remind you of even in the book of Ruth;
She told her friends that her daughter in law was worth more 
then seven sons!!

We must stop this horrible cycle;
So may we all encourage others to look at their in laws and also
the sons and daughters, we give away to their chosen spouse differently!

Look, no one is perfect and no one is going to look or do the things
you do or even enjoy, we all have been raised differently.

If you do not, at least for yourself to decide and with the Lords help;
To be the best Mother In Law you can possible be...

Love is a choice!
Do you always have to be right?

I was given a little plague from my Mother In Law
and it had the sweetest poem written on it!
I loved my Mother in law so very much, I wanted her around!
She loved me and taught me many good things!

Now, My daughter in law has been given that same plaque!

It truly breaks my heart for all the confusion and hurt that
comes from this kind of behavior!

If I can, I will try to always lead someone to reconcile the best they can;
But, If there is none to have, stop calling or trying!
Just Pray And Keep Away
Leave them alone, and just maybe they will come to their senses!

Always learning...
Hugs, Roxy

Here is a picture of the poem that was given to me almost 40 years ago!
I still miss my Mother in law...

The Goodness Of Honey...

Honey, Living From Glory To Glory..

If you are looking for all the values on honey;
This is not what this post is about!

I just feel that honey is so rich and is made by little bee's
That work so very hard to produce a rich amber sweetness!
Liquid Gold...

Honey Jars, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Honey comb you can chew with the wax in it (yummy)
Royal jelly for strength and endurance!
A teaspoon in a cup of warm tea or coffee.
A teaspoon taken for a scratchy throat!

But, oh on a biscuit or cornbread!!
Now, were talking.

And it looks so satisfing sitting on your counter!

Buying honey from a local source is the best for your family!
Have you ever tried Bee Pollen?
I love that stuff...

Honey Bee, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Hello Little Bee
Are you afraid of Bees?

A Field Of Clover, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Every different flower makes a very unique tasting honey!

With all these things in mind, I think you might want to have some
beautiful liquid gold on hand!
Enjoy The Little Things

Blessings From Above, Right Here On Earth,

Pretty Fall Tea And How Fall Is A Time Of Transition...

Fall Tea, Living From glory To Glory Blog...

Fall Tea
Fall Is The Time Of Transitioning...

I often think how gracious our Dear Lord is to allow us this season!
The transition can be a hard time if it happens too quickly.
It is so much easier to be able to change slowly.
Like the leaves on the trees, they take their time changing!

Sometimes when we think of it when the suddenlies happen,
We can be in shock and it causes great stress on one's self,
And the home life, even children feel the stress and tension.

We can save ourselves some grief, if we will give ourselves time to adjust!
Yes, some things are out of our control!
But, when we can do things in stages or gradually!
Less shock and more acceptance.

I pray often for God to give me the grace and strength;
needed for what each day and season might bring!

I am always looking for the bright side;
But we must climb higher to see the sun at times!
Everything is work,
 But we can make it fun or rewarding just by our attitude!

Remember, even if you have nothing planned for the day;
Take a shower and get the ugh off!
Get outside and walk around and breath deep!
Take control of your thoughts!
Be your own advocate and make wise choices!

Start making a list of activities and things to create to keep
yourself moving and growing!
Being flexible, so when the changes come you can bend and flow!

Always, Roxy

Taking The Road Less Traveled And Enjoying The Journey...

A Country Road, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

It is more blessed to give...

This road is a road less traveled...

Life is filled with many back roads, some have had the most
amazing things to see and discover!

We just had the privilege to have our dear friends Lydia And Stanley;
Lydia@ Home Living Blog
Came for a few days to visit our home and stomping grounds.

I tried to get a picture of us girls together,
But the camera was not going to do us any favors.

Living From Glory To Glory Blog, Friends

My plan is to get into my Fall mode of shorter days.

Getting outside for a walk even if the weather is not perfect.

Spending more time in the early mornings, praying and reading the Word!

Using the crockpot for those easy, delicious dinners!

Watching more sweet movies that make me happy and cry!

Writing more emails and letters to those I miss!

Being kind to myself

Being more aware of what is the better choice in foods and company!

And to remind myself to create something beautiful every day!

And giving myself the freedom to rest and relax!

Remember so many are stressed and are living with the
consequences of making bad choices;
But I truly believe we all just want to be loved...

Life can be so very hard!
Just think, If we did not have all these trials we would be bored!
Hold Steady
Remember when you have done all you can do;

Hope some of you tried making that creamy Pumpkin Soup,
Because it is super delicious!

May each of you be strong and courageous!
Much Love, Because the love of Christ compels me.

Hugs, Roxy

1 can unsweetened pumpkin puree
1 can evaporated milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white black pepper

Heat oil in a heavy stock pan over medium heat, so it does not burn.

 until onion is tender, about 7 minutes.

Add pumpkin puree, evaporated milk, salt, and pepper.
Bring to a boil, Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 5 minutes
to blend flavors.

Garnish with parmesan cheese and croutons.
I prefer my own homemade croutons made from French bread.
Drizzle with some sour cream.

I make this soup almost every Fall Season!
It is rich and very elegant...

This is one of those all time keepers for a homemade soup!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...

The Heavens Declare The Glory Of The Lord, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

I have been really thinking a lot about how we as Christians are silenced!
We do not speak up because we do not want to offend others;

But truly if we are called to be the light of the world;
It is not something we have to do, or make a conscious effort to do so.

It is like the stars, they do not have to be told to twinkle or shine;
They do it because it is what they do!

It is not my desire to try to go around offending others that believe a lie!
But, I am tired of walking around being silenced in the little things.

It should be natural to say:
 Praise The Lord
Thank You Jesus
Jesus is Lord
Saying grace
Bowing My head
Quoting Scripture In Day to Day Conversation

This Little Light Of Mine, I am going to let it shine!

A very tiny light can be seen in the darkest night!

I have lived long enough to see so many supposed Christians;
Turn their backs and Hearts against and away from the truth!
The Great Apostasy!
They never truly believed...
Sad. but true!

They are always learning, but never knowing the truth...
Deception is something that looks right or important!
It's once again the syndrome of look at me!
I am religious
I know the deep things...
I studied this for a long time!

I will no longer be silenced!
I will be like the stars that shine every night without being told to!

Your Home Will Reflect Your Style And Heart...

Country decor, Living from Glory To Glory Blog...

Country Charm

I think it is the little things we have in our homes that give it charm.

I know that when I go to a home that has its own unique style,
I like to take notice of what they used and how they have arranged it!

Everything does not have to be magazine beautiful!
But, rather inviting and welcoming!

Many ladies will go through different phases in decorating.
I like changing colors for my curtains and throw pillows.
I also like to change out my rugs!
But mostly, I enjoy changing and rearranging my little things.

I have so many little country and farm looking decor.
The look may be a bit vintage with a bit of country!
I adore classic lace and roses galore.

But a bit of this and that and balancing the colors make it homey.

I am also drawn to birds that just fit in small areas.
A little blue bird and cardinals, and even a few brass ones.

I like to change out table toppings and doilies to freshen up a room!

Your home can reflect your mood and style.
Being aware of keeping things clean and washed like your curtains.
Cleaning and washing the nick knacks can make a room shine!

I enjoy washing the throws and having them clean smelling.
It always feels so nice to climb into a bed with fresh clean sheets!
I will even, in the middle of winter hang our sleeping pillows on the line.
They smell so fresh!

Little home; how I love that you keep me safe and warm.
Cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
I have a place to call my own!
May I always keep you clean and tidy;
And keep you filled with prayers and treasures!
For Home is where the heart is...

Blessings, Roxy
