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,

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
