Out With The Old And In With The New...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

We can all start this New Year with a clean slate...
We can start each day with a clean slate...

Out with the old and in with the new!

I have always loved a new journal or a new pen,
Crisp and clean.

I have always liked new beginnings...

We have the ability to do and be and give and respond;
Like never before.

Are you a man pleaser?
Or do you want to please God?

This world has turned into a me program;
Beware and keep your heart pointed to true North
The star that has kept many that have gone adrift;

Say no to the distractions that keep you busy with no real direction!

If you know the Lord there will be a leading to what He has for you!

Restored relationships!
Closer walk with the Lord!
Getting your house in order!
Learning a new skill to better your home life!
Being available to your husband!
Learn to take pleasure and enjoy the moment!

Shake the dust off your feet...
Have ears to hear and eyes to see, 

Awake and smell the coffee!
Do not embrace another year to become more like the world;
But rather desire and strive to be the women, wife and mother that will hear;
One day, well done good and faithful servant,
Work while it is yet day!

Blessings to each and every one of you that desire the encouragement
To each other, to be a Godly woman!
For it is truly a worthy calling!

A Little Sadness As Another Holiday Cheer Ends...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog

There is just something about a soft light of a candle;
But my favorite is a string of twinkling lights...

I must share with you a deep sense of sadness that came over me today.
We decided to take down the Christmas tree and decorations;
As we had the thought it would be good to start the 
New Year out with the house in order and fresh and tidy!

Yes, it was a good idea, but the feelings and emotion of sadness
Just came over me, but I did find myself weeping a few tears.

I always feel such a sweet and tender range of thoughts and emotions at
this time of the year...
I know that it is such a busy time of year;
But there are so many memories attached to Holidays...

The house looked oh so lonely with all the snowmen put away
No more jack frost nipping at my nose!
All the red and white and golden tinsel put into a box and put away!

All my old fashion Santas are packed away!
My tree is down and the needles swept up...
Oh, what a very sad day!

One thing I do to console myself and to keep some Christmas cheer
All year round, is to keep two separate strands of the multi colored lights up.
I place one at the bottom of my mantel and the other is on top
of my kitchen cabinets over my stove.

So whenever I need the soft and comforting light, I just turn them on!
My Mother-in-law always had a strand over her kitchen sink.
She used them as a night light until bedtime.

I also have been using those fake candles with timers on them.
I place one in the kitchen window and some on the tables.

I am missing the Christmas songs and presence under the tree!
I must tell you all this;
I took pleasure in every detail of Christmas this year!
I did a bit of sewing and some baking!
I did get a few Christmas cards sent out!

So as we say goodbye to another Christmas,
I pray you all heard the bells on Christmas Day!

We never know what the New Year will hold...
Live each day by taking pleasure
 And holding memories close to your heart...

The Gift...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

The Lord Indeed gives what is good.
~Psalms 85:12~

Our God does give many, many gifts.
And in the course of our lives, I believe many gifts go;
 Unnoticed
Ungrateful
Unappreciated

How different this world would be and I own lives if we started
 Viewing all the good things of our lives

If we would start with the small and insignificant things:
All those things that bring us pleasure!
Start looking at these things as love gifts from our Father.

Dear Lord, may I not have an ungrateful heart!
May my eyes not be blinded to your kindness!

If there was one gift I want to give myself is this prayer...
"Thank you for your sovereign love;
 That is revealed in the little details of my life."


I do not want to go through life being unaware of
Gifts from my heavenly Father...

I think it is the same as when we give gifts to our children,
We do hope that they will tell us thank you!

So we are his children, and I know we are a blessing to Him
when we give Him thanks...

Good Will is a powerful thing...
Give Gifts
Give Thanks
Give...

Much Love To You All

Little Pins And Little Tree And A Little Giving Goes A Very Long Way...


Just a Little...

I am always amazed at how much a little can mean to someone!

Just a little bit of sugar helps the medicine go down!

She was cooking and baking and wrapping all day;
She lives to make her house a home.
She answers the question at ten times a day,
Yes, Christmas is on its way!

She makes every effort to put a twinkle in each person's eye.
She smiles and wonders how she will make it through another day!

The joys of being the one who makes Christmas special...

Oh, how I pray for all those special women who have the bare
Minimum to make their Christmas cheer.

Life is not easy for many,
 they feel the stretch and the lack and some cupboards are bare.

I have prayed that someone out there will become aware 
and give a special gift to someone unaware of a little help coming
Their WAY

If you can be a little bit of help to someone near you,
It is not too late to give a gift and little help...

A little given in much love;
Is better than many with little love!

I am reminded of the widows mite;
She gave all she had!

Family Circle...



Good Morning...

Christmas each and every year seems to come more quickly,

Yet, I have found a deep sense of peace in the process this year!

It really goes back to not allowing the worlds commercialism to rule.

We have the ability to stop and do what is important!

Every Christmas has a great potential to teach us the real truths!
God and His Son, given to us as a gift, a babe wrapped in a manger!

Why do we blow it all up and try to act super human?

Taking two lovely, godly young mothers out to lunch today,
I want to give them a moment to breath and relax...

Helping each other to do things in a way that breed love and family!

Is your Husband feeling the comfort and joy coming from you?
Is your home peaceful and Christmas softly playing in the background?

Do you have a few sweets in the freezer?

Have you watched Christmas movies as a family!

Have you read the Christmas story yet?

Well, no worries...
Just enjoy this most wonderful time of the year!

Give Your Husband what he really wants for Christmas
YOU...
Give Your Children what they really need for Christmas
YOU...

We are a family, because God put us together!
We are part of God's family if you are His child!

Blessings, to each of you!
Take a deep breath and sing;

JOY to the world, the Lord has come!

Just file away all those  wonderful Christmas ideas for next year!

Merry Christmas

A Cookie Formula...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

 Sugar and Butter And A Few Cups Of Flour + Love = Cookies

Just A thought from my heart to yours today!

Cookies and gifts galore, or very simple and quaint...
I think many of us have looked at the simple and sweet things
 That makes Christmas special!

Spend time in the kitchen baking and decorating is so very therapeutic;
We need the warmth and the feel of dough in our hands...
Stirring and cracking and measuring and rolling out the dough
Then bring out the cherished cookie cutters. So many shapes 
Stars and Bells And Angels, And Christmas Tree's
 Can bring comfort and a sense of HOME...

This world was created accurately and with form. No element missing.
We have a recipe for cookies that bring a few simple elements together.
That creates a very sweet and simple enjoyment that gives joy.

We can lose sight of what is really important!

Give, and it will be given back;
In smiles and awe, saying this is so good...
Thank you so much for thinking of me!

It is in what we had to everything we do that makes it special!

So many of us together really do change the world;
Maybe for me it is one cookie at a time...

I am what I am by the grace of God!

One cookie One step in His direction daily
Makes a woman very wise!

Okay, it is time to share the name of your favorite cookie that you 
"Bake This Time Of Year"

Thank You ALL for coming to my Home

The Candle And Preparing To Be A Homemaker...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog


The Candle Stick

A candle placed within a candelabra, or a simple candle holder.
Can cause a soft and loving atmosphere.
It has always been a very visual and symbolic picture of being the source of light!

Years ago these were the only source of light used as it was carried from room to room.
I think the use of those tapered candles for the home lighting, were very simple.
Yet they were a major item of a home.

The making of these candles was a very big job and needed to be completed
In a timely fashion. It did take a long process to make them.
They would have to use quality ingredients.
And to also make enough to get through the long winter nights.

I believe when a young maiden fills their Hope Chest;
They know that they will need a strong and sturdy candle holder!
Having the actual candles will be an ongoing need.
But the holder was something that needed to be unbreakable,
Yet, lovely and functional!

And as a contrast
We are carriers of the light as lady's we must shine with love.
We will need to be strong;
And not easily broken or haphazardly put together.
One thing we can be certain of as we walk and live out our calling;
We can either be a bright and happy light that fills a room with joy.
Or a dark shadow of doubt and worry.

We must try to be a positive light for others to see the love of Jesus in us!
For He has asked us to let this light shine…

Keep your candles and candlesticks handy!
For as soon as the sun starts to set we will need them to make
All the rooms of our hearts bright and filled with light.

I have always loved how the word tells us to expose the darkness!
Allow the Lord to work in your heart to keep the flame flickering brightly!

He is our only HOPE…

Doing Life Together "I'll Be Home For Christmas If Only In My Dreams"...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Doing Life Together...

We all know that doing things with another is so much easier and enjoyable!

It can even be a very simple task or even the hard things;
Doing it with someone we love or care about is so much better.

When we have someone to talk and perform a job with just makes the
Burden lighter or easier!

We were not created to be alone!
But rather to do life with our families...

Just having another person in our homes can help drive the quiet away.
And believe me, I love my peace and quiet!

But when you have someone to eat with or to do some baking with;
It just makes life special!

When you are young and your children are young you never even think about
Being alone or by yourself for hours or even days at a time.
But trust me as you become an empty nester or just are in a new season.
Or the worst emptiness is the loss of a loved one!

We need our loved ones close or to live close!
We need holidays spent with our multi-generational families.
We need each and every generation;
They all bring a dynamic that is needed!
Strength
Wisdom
Laughter

God told Adam, It is not good for man to be alone;
So God created him a helper...
Look, we all need to be a helper and to have a helper!
I am not just referring to husband and wife here...

I say this because this is the time of year that loss and loneliness is at its peak.
When we are alone during the most wonderful season of all;
That loneliness can be so heavy and profound!

I might not be experiencing this myself, but I can assure you all of this,
Someone close or far is experiencing this...
And if we are not receptive to this in others lives, we will become cold!

Just because your days and lives are busy and full, does not mean
Others are not feeling lonely or forgotten about!

I love that song that sings this chorus
" I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams"

Some people have lost their dreams and spunk for life...
We need to be aware of those that are in loneliness!

Also, learning the fine art of helping others!

It is as easy as a phone call...
A letter or a funny card...
Asking them to come over to bake...
Or taking a small token or gift to them...
Praying for them...

Ignoring them is not an option!
Being too busy is not an excuse!
Look, we do not have to do it all, but we all need to do our part!

Singing...

I'll Be Home For Christmas Song
If Only In My Dreams

Home For The Holidays

Merry Christmas

The Famine Of Hearing God's Word...

Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Everyone is looking for truth and meaning to their lives!

Well, I will tell you this that you will not find the true answers
in this old world!
Yet God will use this creation and all our situations to bring us to the truth.
I believe He is always tenderly calling...
I told my Hubby this morning I am pretty sure we don't live forever
 in these old bodies.

I found this and I thought I would share it with some of you!

John the Baptist was such a powerful light that God chose to use!
Check out this link below and save it to your favorites!

We must learn to feed ourselves as the church is suffering
from a famine of the Word...




We live in a day in which there is a famine in the land for the hearing of God's Word. This famine has produced a generation of starving Christians who greatly desire the presence of the truth of God's Word in their lives.

Reassuring Those We Love...

 


Greetings...

Sometimes, as the women, we need to reassure our husbands!

And as a woman you will have times you will need to reassure many;
You know when you go through a stretch of trials or tribulation,
We can become fearful or unsure!

And it is very good to quickly respond to our loved ones;
To say yes, we are going to be okay...
Even during a difficult time, we can get pressed!

Even when we do not think we are stressed our bodies can and will
Still respond in a fight or flight mode!

Fear when dwelt upon over a crisis has its own problems!

When worry creeps up over a bad report or situation;
I remind myself of this
Worry is sin...

No, it does not just stop it!
But it puts me in the overcoming defense!

In this life we need to have a plan of defense.

Learning to respond correctly quickly is a powerful antidote for many things!

Even when things happen slowly, there is still a response.

We are to be good stewards of our bodies
Our finances
Our relationships

Being a good steward requires action, 
Prayer
Exercise
Keeping Busy
Can be so powerful in times of unrest, or sickness.

I think of times past, someone is always in a crisis or coming out of one.

Taking and making the time to reassure ourselves and others,
Every time a crisis comes we learn to readjust and overcome
So if any of you or your loved ones have been struggling
With sickness or a bad report my heart goes out to you!

I have many friends going through trials!
I also have had high blood pressure out of no where...
I started exercising and changed my diet to less salt
And taking a few supplements;
But still landed in the ER
The doctor told me I was not dying...
That was a relief... I needed to be reassured!

I still feel really weird, I go to the doctors again tomorrow!
I DO NOT want to have to take medicine for it!
(What are your thoughts?)

P.S. Now that I think about it all, I started feeling terrible after I had a
Flu and pneumonia shot in the same day...
My arm got all red and swollen for a week!
Did my body have a reaction from them?
I think so...

Christmas Spirit Of A Child...

 

Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Christmas Spirit Of A Child...

The wonder and excitement and glee!

Simple is always the better choice!

We do not have to spend a ton of money!

We do not need a ton of Christmas decorations!

Just watching Christmas movies and drinking hot chocolate,
Can bring comfort and warmth...

Exchanging Christmas ornaments is easy and affordable!

You can always give gift cards!
(coffee or burgers)

I am looking for fa la la la la...

I want to awake to the joy and excitement of what
Christmas is really about.

I heard that Christmas is about kindness;
And I thought, wait a minute, I think something has gone astray!
Christmas is about the birth of Jesus our Lord and Saviour...

So my JOY comes from this;
I will still hang a red bulb on the tree
I will still bake cookies for those I love
I will sing
JOY to the world the Lord has come...

Merry Christmas

Help Your Husband...

 



When you become self absorbed in things and self;
And forget to be the helpmate that is needed.

I have seen lately, many relationships that seem strained.
I can't help, but to look at some of these people that we know and love.

But I always really must go back to the basic of a healthy relationship!
Men were created to rule and protect!
But when the one they desire to love and protect, seem aloof or contentious.
This brings a weight that just kills their purpose.

Sometimes it is not the huge battles that break them.
Rather, it can be the accusing tone in your voice.
When they are tired we continue to push them with our words.

Sometimes it is just not meeting the simple needs of good meals,
And rest and a hug...
Men feel the weight, dear ones!

Helping is really very easy and when done with a word of encouragement!

If we really believe God is in control;
Why do we always try to rule and control things?

Spend quality time with your Husband!
Make the choice to truly help them...
(The benefits are huge)
Peace in your heart and home...

The best way to show love to your children of any age;
Is to love their Father!

Our Husbands are the treasure and gift to keep our homes
Safe And Together!

Do you always want to be right
Or
Keep the peace...

As in the picture above, even a sheet of ice can break a stalk;
But the frost can stifle growth and movement!

Be his greatest cheerleader and supporter!
Remember that his job can be so demanding as ours can be also.
But giving love and support is what gives us purpose.

Let This Be A season Of Giving...

Winter Woe's...




After Winter truly sets in we all need to pull out our thermal underwear
Warm socks 
Lined gloves
Boots with warmth, and not just cute!

So you get the picture;
During this last week I thought I might just fill you in on a few 
Happening's around here...

Well, it snowed and has been freezing
I completely lost my voice for three days
I watched every Hallmark movie in a movie marathon.
My brain completely seized up...
As a girl has to use her words, or it is very possible that
She just may explode, I tell you!

Well, after 2 days of that I was determined to get moving and do something!
So, I cut out two Christmas aprons and as a no surprise; I was short on the fabric.
So, one of the aprons would fit an elf!
So if you know any elves that need a new apron, let me know!

Then after a very long day...
My Hubby comes in and tells me last evening
Honey, I need to move the dryer out as it is spewing lint and moisture 
all in the back mud room.
(Living out here you need a mud room)

I tell him I will help, so he gets the dryer pulled out and of course
the dirt under those appliances are always so dirty,
We get it all fixed and we used the all purpose homeowners
Duct tape to complete the job....

So as we are putting the duct tape away...
I watched as a can of PVC glue purple gunk falls off the shelf and splits open.
Now it is all over my hubby's arm and now on my white floor.

Not one of us knew what to do!
We tried bleach, we tried WD 40
We used a paint scraper.
I screamed (whispered) call our son!!
(I had no voice)

He is one of those guys that can make or fix anything;
He said use some GOOF OFF...
Hubby says do have any Goof Off?

Don't ask me, how would I know!

Well any hoot he came over and he had some of that stuff and it did take
most of that bright purple color off my floor.

Okay, if this was all  a test I am pretty sure I did not get such a good grade!

Oh, and did I mention I ordered for the first time an organic
Turkey for our Thanksgiving meal?

Well, it was the most bland and tough turkey I have ever served!
I kid you not I spit it out in my napkin,
Just like when I was a kid and my Mother served us liver!
I really did miss my hormone ladened turkey...

I hope I did not leave out any important facts...
Oh wait, one more I turned another year older!



I do feel this is another holiday to remember!
Laughter is good medicine...

The Tablecloths Great Comeback...




The simple elegance of the great American tablecloth's!
I think that when we see a tablecloth it immediately takes us back to the
Days of early homemaking styles.


Living From Glory To Glory Blog
Google Images

They can be very simple or very intricate...
Fine linen to lace
Bright colors to patterns of just about anything.

Red and white checkered says country or Italian.

White linen says your special and company is coming!

Fall festive says harvest and plenty
Christmas says Merry To all 

Why has it become so much work or effort to use a tablecloth?

I know all the practical reasons...

But now days you can cover your tablecloths with a clear plastic if you have
Children, or would rather have the option for an easier clean up.

You can also find many plastic ones with the flannel backing;
With so many pretty colors and patterns.
(But please be careful as those tablecloths can leave a lint film on your wood)

I prefer tablecloths and I also use place mats.

Tablecloths come in about every size you can imagine!
Also, you can purchase them for a very reasonable price;
I always look for them at second hand stores, 
and after seasons change clearance section.



My reason for writing about this particular home decor and its uses!
We can change our whole presentation of either our kitchen or dining room
By using a simple large piece of fabric that is placed upon our table.

Social graces and simple, cozy feelings!

If you simply prefer not to cover your table, may I suggest using some place mats!

I have very sweet memories of being a child in my Grandmother's kitchen,
The old percolator was making coffee and toast was being served,
with fresh butter and cream for the coffee.
But what really sticks out was the fresh tablecloth on the table
Every morning had a new beginning...



Here is a very great tip for keeping tablecloths crisp and wrinkle free.
Wash them and line dry them if possible, as then there is no need for ironing.




A tablecloth can really make the style and a statement...
Home is everything!

The Power Of Saying Thank You...

 


The Power Of Saying Thank You...

I believe it is in our human nature to make an impact in our world.

I may never win the Nobel prize or author a book!
I may never discover something that saves lives.

But I think we all have a word that will change the course of history!

When we tell someone Thank You, it will infuse a heart with gratitude!

We all need to hear and speak these simple words!
I think we may never know the impact of them this side of heaven.

Make it a habit and a joy to tell someone thank you!

May I take this time to say Thank you to each of you kind souls that
Have crossed my path in this humble, yet joyous journey!

I need you and I hope you need me!
All connections are pre-determined...

Never judge someone until you walked a mile in their shoes!

If your road has been tough I offer you a thank you for trying;
If you're hanging on to a marriage that is difficult, thank you!
If you have lost a loved one, thank you for not giving up hope!
If you have told someone thank you, it makes the world better!

Give Thanks...

The Gift Of Hospitality...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Why Simple And Basic Allows Us To Enjoy

We live in a day where we have so many choices;
So when I think about cooking or baking I do try to prepare some
very simple meals. And I also will make extra special foods,
As time or celebrations present themselves.

Right now my refrigerator is stuffed and the counters have
So many goodies, that it immediately overwhelms ones senses.

But we are all in preparation for the greatest food holiday!
So we must take pleasure and enjoy all the goodies!
But we can use a bit of common sense and use a bit of moderation.
Don't Eat The Whole Pie

I think even the smells and aromas are healing in many ways.
Food can bring us together...
Breaking bread and fellowship as families and friends.

I do believe that many women have the gift of a hospitality,
That is really baking and sharing their lovely homemade goods!
Exercise your gift and give thanks and to share with others.

We always think we have to do a huge ministry;
But I think food made with love will nourish a weary soul!

Use the gift of food when you have a get together;
Or take something to your hubby's office or your own work place.
Make a pan of brownies or an appetizer sort of goodies.

I have always felt like a snack offered at a meeting had a way
Of diffusing some stress.

Hungry people can feel a bit cranky!
Did you know most men say that their favorite holiday is Thanksgiving?

I always envision and hope that my home is a happy place!
I am so thankful for the bounty!
So when you have extra time to bake up some hospitality;
Do some delicious goodies such as
Cookies and quick breads and put them in the freezer to grab and serve!

Tomorrow will be busy prepping and preparing
Do Not Stress, but rather take pleasure!

Enjoy!

Little Women And The Comforts Of Home...

 

Living From Glory To Glory Blog


Little Women...

Years ago when someone would come to your door looking to sell the
Lady of the home their wares;
 They might say, is the little women home?

Well of course she was as that is where women were most the time!
But after the late fifties, A thing called divorce reared its ugly head.
Then many women had to go to work,
 To help keep the children fed and a roof over their heads.

But it is no surprise anymore to see the women working!
Many choose to stay working even if they could come home.

Today is different...

So this post may bore you to tears, but I love good books;
A have read Little Women many times;
And I have watched every version of the movie also!

Women, Wives and Mothers,
But a sister can be so special and important in our lives!
Growing up, you may have had your spats, but the memories and laughter!

And I think this book covers the deep things and how the heart
Shows the deep fondness they had for each other!

I love reading books and stories that make one's heart feel strong!
We must keep the sweet thoughts flowing and not become cynical.

If you find yourself becoming tired or weepy in the evenings.
Try taking a warm shower and make yourself a cup of decaffeinated tea
 And start reading something that will nurture your imagination
 and may you be reminded of good things that feed the soul.

A Good Book Is A Treasure...

Why Having Long, Hair Is A Good Idea At Any Age...



Lovely And Long and Beautiful Hair

I remember as a young woman I had long hair all the way to my waist!
It was very long and red in color (auburn)

I always had so many people comment over the length of my hair.
Even as a young lady I just knew that long hair was pretty.

I also remember once having my hair as a very young child very short as my
 Mother had a neighbor cut it off into a pixie style haircut!
I felt naked...
Gone were my ponytails and kiss my curls goodbye.

I find myself always looking at ladies with lovely long hair!
No matter the age I always think they look feminine.
But, as I have aged even shoulder length or just long enough to frame
Your face, looks so soft.

Hair is a gift from the Lord!
We are given it as our glory and a covering...
Long hair is for your husband to enjoy!
Hair is an adornment to allow you to look ladylike.

I will not use this forum to tell you how long you should wear your hair!
But rather a reminder that you can have a bit longer hair at any stage
At any season of your life...

Silver or natural in color can look very becoming on any lady.


Long and flowing...
Curly or straight...


A very pretty side twisted bun is so pretty!


A sweet ponytail is always in style...

Why do women desire to cut their hair really short?
I mean militant short
(Yes, Jamie Lee Curtis can pull it off)

I like big hair and I cannot not lie...

Your hair can make you appear soft and demure
Pretty and fashionable.

I have always just felt a bit more ladylike with a bit longer hair!

Hair bleached or too short can appear harsh on some skin tones...

I know each and every one of us have had a really bad haircut or perm in our lives!

Remember, we were told don't worry, it will grow out
Well, Honey not soon enough for my liking!

So give it a try
Go long...

Or maybe just longer than your usual style or cut!

And ask your Husband if he would like you to grow your hair out a little bit!

Tell me, What did he say?

Really my Hubby says he likes my hair long, but he also
Says wear it the way you like it, dear, because it is your hair and you have to fix it!
