Where The Roses Never Fade...


Where The Roses Never Fade Hymn, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Everything can be but a passing faint memory;
Or it can be something we hang onto with grace!

Some things in this life we must release and let it go,
Some moments in time are etched in our minds and hearts!

Forever is a long time, but eternity is without end...

When we learn to relax and breath from resting in what will last;
We will become more thoughtful and a stronger commitment to truth!

I love flowers, but a Rose is symbolic of something we may not be
Able to describe, but the fading away that happens, we all feel it.

We want to hang onto those beautiful moments and days and years.

Some days you are not even aware of the fade;
But other times it's almost an ache within.

Children grown and now grandchildren grown;
You may not be needed by others that once depended on you.

You even get used to the dull ache of remembering when.
You even become comfortable in your own skin.
The rhythm of your days is slow and purposeful...

"But we will always long for when the Roses will never fade."


The Hymn called Where The Roses Never Fade...

Here is a very sweet, very old hymn that I love...


I am going to  a city Where the streets of gold are laid,
Where the tree of life is blooming, And the Roses never fade.

In this world we have our troubles, Satan snares we must evade;
We'll be free from all temptations Where the Roses never fade

Loved ones gone to be with Jesus, in their robes of white arrayed.
Now are waiting for my coming Where the Roses never fade

Here they bloom, but for a season, soon their beauty is decayed.

~I am going to the city Where the Roses never fade~

Never be sad for too long for all the bygone year's;
For we have a promise that will never fade.

Enjoy and totally embrace the here and now and know the future
Will be blooming with beautiful, fragrant Roses that will never fade.

Blessing to each and every one of you, dear saints,
For we will one day meet on that beautiful shore!
Hugs, Roxy

Hope this inspired you and gave you a bit of JOY

This Covid Virus May Leave A Nasty Trail Of Side Effects...


Storm Over The Water, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...



This Covid virus has a nasty trail of side effects for some;

We all have done one of two things, totally extreme or nothing at all!
We must find the solution that works for you!

The guidelines we have been given are a small price to pay;
Have you heard of the group called the long haulers?
 This group of well meaning people is trying to make others
realize the huge range of symptoms that have lingered for them.
These symptoms are the after effect of having the Covid virus!

I believe we will be experiencing a storm of side effects!

These people are trying to get the word out, so others,
will realize this virus can have long reaching, life changing problems.

This virus is not as simple as either having the flu
for a couple of weeks or being high risk and dying.
"There's so much about this virus that our medical field,
knows nothing about! 
There are many things that we don't understand,
This has been in our country for only about six months,

My point is this, there are many people already living with
long term effects that we are just learning about.

Staggering List Of Symptoms
Cough, chronic fatigue, memory issues
Vision problems, chest heaviness, drastic heart rate,
Oxygen changes, reflux, nausea, dizziness, vertigo,
Joint pain, mild fever, tremors, dry mouth...
Many more according to the site,
I believe you can find the site through Facebook;
I do not have Facebook, so I found what I could to inform myself!
Just thought I would share, just in case you or someone else;
May be going through this 

I have a dear friend in this situation and its very hard to function!
Maybe I only know of one, but that's enough for me!

How long will these people suffer?
Well, I do not think they really know that now!
Struggle.

Wear masks, social distance and look out for each other!

But, please don't forget to live as normal as possible!
Enjoy your loved ones using some caution;
The big deal is this, there truly is no known pattern,
For how this might affect each person with their own health issues,
Or their body's response!

I for one, believe I had the virus late January;
I have experienced a few long lasting effects myself.
Vertigo and fatigue.

I am using essential oils and have added some supplements!
Building up my immune system!

We must all Plod On and Persevere...

Enjoy this day and time in your life!

Beware Of Seeing Only The Faults In Others...


Ocean, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Having Eyes For Beauty

Or, Seeing Only The Faults...

I still believe so many men and woman walk this earth,
That are radiant people with gentle and kind character.
Their lives shine with bright and shining qualities;
They are filled with the Holy Spirit!
They have a desire to think the best of others!
Seeing the goodness and the life flow of Christ of true believers;
This is a quality that pleases the Lord.

Let us all strive to be one of those that look for the goodness!



But, sadly we have many that only see the faults in others!
They have no eyes to see these lovely qualities.
But for every fault and blemish, they have the sharpest eye.

Maybe because it may be easier to have a fault finding character.

Why we must be watchful about taking part of having a
Self righteous, critical spirit!
Or rehearsing and remembering every wrong or hurtful word
Spoken to or about you.
Don't allow others abuse you!

Beware of this also;
 Do not spin words or lies about others!
They feel they can do this, because it's easy to be self righteous!
Or maybe anyone of us can get caught up in the moment
 Of a good gossip session!

For many years, I have prayed to not be self righteous;
See your wrong and confess to God

But yet we are to judge between evil and good!

It is how we do this, without destroying someones character or life;
Which is the most important step in looking for the good.

Having grace for others, when they do make a mistake in judgement,
Is a sure sign of a maturity that only comes through trials.

Treat others the way you would like to be treated!
Verify the truth...
Be slow to anger and judgment!
Remember, he said, she said, is a very slippery slope!

Dear Wounded:
Remove yourself from the ones that cause the Pain!
Beware of being lulled into thinking all is okay, when they are on better behavior.
Once or twice is human;
But once you see their pattern of abuse!
Stop and do not expose yourself to their manipulation!

(You will never be able to overcome their view and control)
"It's their way or nothing
They will always get the last word in
They will always call you what they really are
You will never be able to change their opinion of you
They always remember things that happened in their version of the story"

So anyways, if you have been living in this cycle;
Stop and get out or off...

Insanity= doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result

Learn to take your own life under control
Manage your own life and keep only relationships;
~That are biblical and healthy~

As Always, Living From Glory To Glory

An Additive That Can Make You VERY Sick...


Milk Additives, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...



What's this additive?

Well, firstly let me state this personal fact;
Every time I drank certain lactose free milks,
My stomach started rumbling and hurting.
It got so bad, I just knew there was some additive in these liquids that
Were making me so sick!

It took me a long time to realize that Carrageen made my stomach hurt.

Then other things started, my stomach hurt;
Alas, I have now found the culprit;

Any stabilizer made from these products that have been
Grown as fermented became in the same family of acidophilus.


Guar gum
Xanthan gum
Gellan Gum
Gum Arabic
Carrageen

These are a stabilizer used in many foods

One reason that food additives like emulsifiers may be potentially dangerous is because they can alter healthy levels of intestinal bacteria, which may contribute to chronic, low-level inflammation that promotes changes in cells in the digestive tract, It is like drinking a super cocktail filled with bacteria.

This can cause SIBO... 
(Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)

Guar Gum has shown to cause digestive and abdominal stress.

Xanthan Gum is a product of bacterial fermentation.

Gellan Gum is an exopolysaccharide produced once again by
 Bacterial fermentation.

Gum Arabic acts as a powerful prebiotic, which stimulates the growth of bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.


Carrageen can cause inflammation in your digest track!



I am now drinking Rice milk which contained none of these ingredients.

Also The Brand Lactaid 2% has none of this stuff in it!
But, the Calcium enriched does!

Do you have any of these issues?

I am finally free of tummy issues related to the prebiotic addative!

I do hope you are all doing well!
I am still being very cautious because of the Covid,
But, I am still living and enjoying my life!

It seems we are always dealing with something, but it will keep us humble!

And it always keeps me drawing near to the Lord!

Happy Summer!
Drop me a comment and tell me how you are doing!
Hugs, Roxy

To The Republic For Which We Stand...


American Flag, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


To The Republic For Which We Stand

We have fought many battles to keep our Country Free...

But, I never really knew how many anti Americans lived in America
I thought everybody loved our flag, and what it stands for!

But as we can see so many think we should erase all of its history!

I never thought I would see the day of the land of the free and brave;
Be terrorized from within!
They want to rule and reign and to hold us captive!

We are citizens of another better country; HEAVEN
We are told to protect life and to build and not tear down!

We are told we are not tolerant!
Now, that is a lie, because this is a melting pot of the whole world;
But, one wants to dominate all...

I feel so sorry for our children and grandchildren!
Teach your little ones well, they are not born intolerant!
Someone else is teaching hate!

I have traveled and lived in this great country, and all I have
Seen is love and concern for one's neighbor very kind people!
Willing to help!
But as we all know one bad apple can spoil the whole basket!

If you poke a hornets nest while its just doing what it does,
I can promise you will get hurt and even innocent bystanders.
We must be able to defend our America and love our country!
No one has to stay here in the USA...
Go, Leave us alone!!

Who are these people that incite others to kill and destroy?
There is an agenda to wipe out everything...
They only want you to see, hear and do what they think is acceptable!
"Think One World Order"

That sound like control. Marxism, not freedom!

If there is another outbreak of Covid, we can blame those,
That have protested and have not followed the social distancing,
And wearing masks, and washing their hands!

Oh wait, they don't follow our rules in our country.
They have immunity to do whatever they want!

They say we are not accountable to no one!

Foolish and heart breaking...

Do not bow to this tyrant of a wayward child...

We are not suppose to kill, steal, and destroy...
We are told to obey and to build each other up!

Every election year we see this kind of behavior!
Ask yourself, who is behind this?
Who pays these to kill and destroy?
Is this normal behavior?
Who benefits from this disruption?
Who is really behind this evil smoke screen?

Sometimes just ignoring a problem, is not the responsible thing;
Pray and fly the American Flag...
Somebody better stand or all our rights and History will be gone!
Once something gets a foothold, things never get better.
~Only Worse~


Stand up and do what is right, sit down and pray!
Set your hands to build!
Live and Love this Wonderful Country
~ God Bless America~

Blessings, Roxy

Why We Must Teach The Younger Women...



Cozy Kitchen Corner. Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Who Wants To Be Trained?...


We definitely have seen a decline in younger Women being willing to learn;
The art of Homemaking!

I believe we are seeing the fruits of training not being given or received.

The world marches to its own set of rules, And the need for income or just more!

I feel that the older women do not have the willing participants;
Because many empty nesters no longer have those that are at home or are willing to learn!

Maybe, we just keep sharing resources when we can and they just learn on their own.
And in my opinion that is fine also!

But, we must continue to teach through our own life's actions.....
It's in our willingness to encourage with words and to cheer them on!!

May we hope that we will have a movement that draws them HOME

I think most women still desire to take homemaking as a privilege;
And embrace all the joys of HOME

 I have learned and I'm still learning;
To be a wise homemaker in times of plenty and want.
In times of world upheaval and drought,
Trials and tribulations
Rain or shine, storm clouds and storms!
Sunshine and Warmth...

Some time we have tough seasons and other times smooth sailing.

Learning to live on a dime, yet being extravagant in some things in a time of plenty!
Keeping our homes, furnished and filled with resources is just wise!

Trusting the Lord in lean times!
Sharing when we have more!

If you're a young woman, keep your heart open to learn a skill or two!
If you're an older woman be willing and watchful to share a bit of wisdom!

But also a reminder to myself and to you dear readers;
We can all learn a thing or two from each other



That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands,
 To love their children, 
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home,
 Good, obedient to their own husbands,
 That the word of God be not blasphemed. 
Titus 2:4, 5


We are doing well, yet have been feeling a big hit in the aerospace market!
Remember, many of us are still reeling financially from this world pandemic

As my husband said slow down and put on the brakes!

"This all happened after we bought all new windows and flooring"
Great...
Now, I just stay home and enjoy my home more than ever for the duration.

Always, Living from Glory To Glory

Don't Rain On Someone's Parade...





 Sometimes we can finally find something that works for us!
What I mean is that life is not really very easy;
~If you had not noticed~

Some days and seasons are much easier,
But when you are struggling with something;
That has caused distress, it can be a challenge!

It might be something just small and annoying.
But, it can cause you distress!

Many times I have had to find an answer to theses dilemmas!

And when I finally found an antidote that worked for me;
There would always be something said to make me feel
Wrong, sad, unworthy...

For instance;
An Example
When I became lactose intolerant, I could not find a
Coffee creamer I really liked, because I like it to be creamy!
I tried every natural brand and did not enjoy the taste or texture.

So when I finally tried Coffeemate, its lactose free;
I was so happy!
But we all know its not a super healthy product;
But, it sure tastes good LOL
So as you can imagine others had to make me aware of the
Down side of this product!I felt like everyone turned into the coffee police.

Sometimes the answer to a problem is going to carry a downside!

But sometimes you just got to go with what works!

So, Hopefully I have learned to be thoughtful;
And not always give my opinion on what someone else is doing!

So, I guess my one liner is this today

Don't rain on someones parade;
Let them be happy and enjoy the answer to their struggle!

Be the one to encourage today!!
Pray for others to succeed and to excel!
Be not jealous of others!
Use the means you have to help and honor others!

Try not to find fault, but to help them to strive to do better!

Has someone ever rained on your parade?
How did you overcome?

Hugs, Roxy

Covid19, Riots, Humidity, My Thoughts...

Delphinium Flower, Garden, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Covid19,  Riots, Humidity,

~My Thoughts~

Many have completely forgotten about Covid19,
But many will remember it's devastation forever!
Loss of life (But it has been just old people)
So what the heck; so that makes a difference?
The older generation was the backbone of our society for
As long as many of you have been alive or were a toddler!
This nasty virus could kill anyone!

Covid 19, taught me to stay home and enjoy it
Covid 19 allowed me to get some new clothes after gaining weight!
Covid19 showed me that everyone spits when opening one's mouth!
ICK...

Covid19 reminded me to wash my hands all the time!

Covid19 has caused so much destruction in our financial world!
Everything will be different or a struggle!

After being home for two months;
 I now am using my good camera again; The photo on this blog,
Was a photo shoot in a friend's garden.

The aerospace industry is really hurting;
Who wants to sit in a metal space with a hundred;
Other people breathing the same air?
To be honest, If the price was cheap I just might!
Look flying is wonderful; they just need to take greater precautions.

These riots remind me of my childhood in Detroit;
Civil Rights, Vietnam protest...
Abortion advocates...
Some things never change!
"Want to be heard?"
Write a Book
Start a Blog
Don't burn down your own town or city!

Just finished watching the series Jericho;
Makes you think!
God Bless America


Humidity is brewing early this early summer;
So hot its hard to sleep at night!
We are talking about getting central air in our home.
Besides, when you have COPD, it's hard to breathe in humidity!
At least if you are at home, you get a break!

Our greenhouse is doing amazing!
A garden is a wise way to work and see a bountiful harvest!
All hard work has profit!!

Well. I have taken a little break from blogging to just enjoy
My Home, My Life, My Family

Just had my entire Blog put into a book,
Can't wait to receive it in the mail!
I will share it with you!

So get on with your life;
Live today and enjoy it all!
Whatever you set your hands to may it do well!

How To Make Straight Paths, And A Long Stem Rose...


Rose, Livng From Glory To Glory Blog...
"New Growth On A Long Stem Rose"


Please share with me if you have ever had a cut
Long stem rose grow new leaves and a bud?


Make Straight Paths For Your Feet
Farming, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Have you ever watched a farmer plowing a field?

In order to get his rows straight or furrows;
He must look straight ahead and fix his eyes on an object.
Like a fence post or a tree on the far side of his field.

Because if he looks side to side or behind him, his rows,
Will be crooked or a zig-zag pattern.
So looking behind to see if he's straight will not work.

So if we want to make straight paths for our feet,
 We must look ahead!
Do like Paul did and forget those things which are behind!
Press forward...

Go forward and look straight ahead while planting.
"Remember everyday we are planting seeds"

These seeds are filled with life
Just water, weed and fertilize,
To receive a harvest!

Happy Days
Hugs, Roxy

Single Serve Blue and White Teapot




Working Hard To Keep Busy Around The Homestead!

Planting bedding plants in my flower beds.
Planting our greenhouse!

Encouraging ourselves is sometimes a daily must!

So grateful I can get outside and get things done in my yard!


~But here is a little video clip I did share a few thoughts~

I am so enjoying beautifying my yard and home;
Last week it was very chilly out, so with some help
 We changed around the Living Room!

Taking time to do all the things we need to do to stay
Healthy and motivated!

What color themes do you have in your living room?

Also, keep an eye out for a single serve teapot for yourself;
Or it would make a lovely gift for someone!

Thanks for stopping in for a visit!

Where Are All The Whistleblowers...


Whistleblowers, Expose The Lies, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Where Are All The Whisle Blowers?

Definition of a Whistleblower;
A person who exposes secretive information or activity within
Ones own private or public sphere!

These things are either illegal or immoral, fraudulent or corrupt;
Other words not correct, wrong doing!
How about just plain old UNETHICAL

Have you ever exposed something of this nature?
It can be a very scary situation;
As we mostly do not want to get involved or to be a trouble maker.

But yet these things can become threats to all our well-being.

The Word tells us to expose the darkness;
Yet, so many times the retaliation from those in power can be scary!

Are these people really getting away with these things?
It may seem to be what is happening; 
But all things will be exposed one day.

Maybe because the truth is now subject to your own interpretation?

Have you heard in these days,
I don't know what to believe?

Who is telling the truth anymore?!?
 I received this comment last week and I thought of just deleting it,
But then I decided to just share it...
Because it is disturbing and yet it is in the heart of someone.

"Anonymous Commenter"
Shall I----
Publish, Delete, Spam

As soon as boomers die off in mass, we millennials will vote for socialism. Within the next 5 to 10 years, as more and more of you boomers die off, 
We are going to turn America into a socialist country, 
And we are going to STOP giving 80 billion a year to Israel. 
Everything you boomers worked to create, we will destroy.

Look you can say what you want, but you are just a steward
Of the time allotted to you!
I advise to use it well...


So many are hurting in our world today,
Can we just do nothing?
We can pray, we can encourage,
We may even be able to shed some light on a wrong!

Sometimes we just need to do something!

Blessings, Roxy

Preparing A Pantry With Food Staples...


A Well Stocked Pantry, Livng From Glory To Glory Blog...


We Can Always Have A Full Pantry...
Even if it takes you 3-6 months, 
By buying 2 extra items each time you go to the store!
Always buy them when on sale!!!!

Watch for the sales and go to one of those stores that have
 Off brand canned items.

But, I will say this I only buy what I like and will eat!

(Because if you don't like it, You will not eat or use it)



Pantry Shelf, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Some items have a longer shelf life;
Start with the staples first;
Then start adding some items that add flavor!
Have items to make quick breads!
Pastas that you can make meals with and to add to soups!

I think when a tough time or a crisis hits;
We can have enough foods in a pantry to buffer a blow.
Having a full pantry year round can help you or someone else!
Having extra to share is a blessing!

When you always keep your pantry full, you will not 
Feel the need to start the hoarding mentality out of fear.

I also try to date foods and rotate them!
Then you shop from your pantry and replenish them as you use them!


What Are Food Staples...

Rice
Quinoa
Flour
Oatmeal
Dry Beans
Canned Beans and Vegetables
Canned Fruit
Applesauce
Vegetable Oil
Shortening
Baking powder
Baking Soda
Peanut Butter
Tuna
Canned Chicken
Chicken and Beef Boullion
Gravy Packets
Sugar, Brown and powder sugar
Carton Milk
Canned Milk
Mayo
Ketchup
Spices

Also keep your freezer stocked the same way!
Buy on sale double wrap the meats in smaller portions!
Rotate all items and keep a list of what is in the freezer!

Also, you must shop and cook from your freezer;
So items do not get freezer burned!

So may I encourage everyone that having a pantry well stocked;
Is like having money in the bank!

Even in a difficult time you can start slowly and get it going!

As Always, Living From Glory To Glory

Why Do Some People Refuse To Wear A Face Mask ?...

Wearing A Face Mask, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

This Is My Question?

Why are some people refusing to not wear a mask?

I am confused about this topic!

I truly don't get it...

Everything has to have some underlying meaning.

Is this just because I think I look unattractive?  
   (Seriously)
Or they are too uncomfortable to wear!

I surely think its a small price to pay for another person's sense of well-being.
And for your own if someone just happens to sneeze or cough.

I think it's all part of a deep seated rebellion
No One Is Going To Tell Me What To Do

The protesters held signs saying
Don't wear a mask and be gagged;
Oh, really I can still speak and say anything I may need to!

There has been times in history that by wearing a mask,
Just may have saved lives!

First, we were told not to wear them;
(That NEVER made sense to me)

We just need another LAW
To tell us what to do;
As we see others screaming, I won't put up with this!

It just seems to be getting weirder by the day!

If by wearing a mask I can go into stores and business;
And they can open!!!
Why NOT?

If you want to leave your 2 cents;
"Leave a Comment"


Give Us Wisdom
Give Us Freedom to do what is right...

We Are All Ready For This Stay At Home Order To Be Lifted...




I'm a little teapot,
Short and stout,
Here is my handle
Here is my spout
When I get all steamed up,
Hear me shout,
Tip me over and pour me out!

I'm a very special teapot,
Yes, it's true,
Here's an example of what I can do,
I can turn my handle into a spout,
Tip me over and pour me out!

~A Video Clip For You~


Hello, I think we are all getting antsy
 And wanting this stay at home order to end!

We need to get our workers back on the job!

Let's get America back to work!

I do hope we have all learned some valuable things;
Washing our hands!
Being mindful of spreading germs!
Wear a mask when you are sick or traveling in a plane!

These may become our new normal...

Can't wait to visit my craft store, and visit my friends!
"What's The First Thing You Are Going To Do?"

This Is Your Chance Ladies...


Woman Are Told To Come Home, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


This Is Your Chance Ladies

Do You Want To Come Home

This thought just hit me this morning;
So many women for the first time are told to stay home...
Because of this COVID

Just maybe this is your chance to make a difference;
I think if you really step up and engage in your womanly ways.
Such as being the light and the heart of your home!
Cooking meals or breakfast where everyone can just sit and eat and relax!

Changing the different rooms around, deep cleaning
And making the rooms clean and fresh and very cozy!
Having a clean bedroom for a child will help them feel safe and special!

Clean out your pantry and really make some yummy easy meals!

Read together as a family
Pray together!
Go outside and throw a ball around to each other!
Bake some cookies together!
Work on a puzzle together.
Rub each others backs!
Throw a tickle in there while your at it!

So many families really do not even know what it would be like;
To have a Momma home full time!!!

Trust me, if most kids, or Husbands were asked,  is it a benefit???
For the Mother or Wife being at HOME...
Many could not even answer that one.

Don't let a crisis of being told to stay HOME go to waste!
Step-up and be the light of the HOME...
Be the one to comfort and assure all that God has this!

Hopefully we have all learned a little something here!

Show yourself and everyone else all you do for the household and family!

Do not make everyone think that having Mom HOME all the time is a drag!

In times of trial and struggle or just everyday stress;
Having someone HOME is a wonderful blessing.

Also, even a single Mom can really stabilize the home working full time.

The point is to show the value and our worth!
Everyone needs HOME...

Blessings, Yours Truly, Roxy

Sheltering In Place...

A Teapot, Flowers, Livng From Glory To Glory Blog...

Sheltering In Place

Or you can call it the Stay At Home Order

But I choose to look at it this way, Sheltering in Place!

I feel that staying home is the best place in a world that is fighting
A very scary virus, that can change a life and a family.
They call it the ghost, they can't see it and many are infected with it.
But, they don't even know it!

If you have seen all the hype, and all the lies and the rebellion;
You know this has been a fire of the battles of my rights to just fake news!

But one thing I know for sure this is real and has hit the heart ,
Of our country...

I do not enjoy the political rally cry
My Rights and anti-government!

But, I will once again sit this one out and do as I am asked to do!
But wait---- I did all they are asking us to do before they ever said anything!


If you don't like this country then move
It's your right!

I am so glad our Church willingly chose to close the doors!
To comply with our government's request, but to protect us all!

Well, I have not missed running into town or spending the day away!

Being home can be a great way to get things into perspective!

But, now if social media crashes then we're really in trouble.
Because YouTube is just having comments within comments
 Fighting one another, what will they do with their time!

Look, this is America and everyone, including me, has an opinion!
But now days it may be wiser to keep it to yourself!

This is a time to learn what is important!

The Great Depression was something we still can remember;
But most of us did not live through it.

But we all just may need to change our behavior and our
Critical thinking skills.

In my opinion, we should not have to be told what to do!

Just do it, and do it with an attitude that is Christlike.

He even said give to Caesar what is Caesars!

Your actions could cause great harm to others!

I know there is many  lessons in all of this and I hope we are all
Listening!
I hope we come out of this
With a renewed awakening and an appreciation for what we have!
In our Lives
In our Homes
In our Churches
In our Country

We continue to take these privileges for granted!
But I do not see that they have taken my rights away;
The force comes because some people do unsafe things!
Your not suppose to drive drunk, but people still do!

When I was in class many years ago for my hunting License;
I remember they told us this
Hunting is not a right, but a privilege.

You may not agree!

In these days I am so enjoying my Home!
And what I can still do...

Have you Ever Had A Mentor In Your Life ToHelp You And New Blog Design...


Baby Chicks, Living From glory To Glory Blog...


Happy Spring...
Time for New Beginnings

I am very happy and blessed to have been able to have my Blog
Living from Glory To glory
Revamped and updated!

My old blog was starting to malfunction and things were not working;
Weird images just popping up!

So I had this beautiful photo that I just loved;
So with a very talented Designer, she made me a Header from the photo.

If you are needing a little help or a complete makeover!
~She is very professional and talented~
Here is her Link



Have you Ever Had A Mentor In Your Life To Help You Become A Loving Homemaker...

Hope for All Homemakers... 

When I was a young woman, and newly married
 I remember feeling like I was finally
Going to be able to do what was in my heart to do! 
Making a Home filled with things that I loved!
And people who called our house a HOME

I didn’t really know at the time,
 How long all this might actually take! 
But it was in my heart and it was a seed,
 That had to grow and mature. 

I feel a special kinship with others that want the same things. 

But we all know life does not come with MapQuest! 
Everything is a journey and sometimes it’s a bumpy ride. 
Over the river and through the woods to Grandmothers house we go! 

When I was a young girl still in school, we had classes that taught us; 
So many skills to run and manage a home one day!

Home Economics is no longer thought to be important. 
And some of us had a Mother or Grandmother to help
Teach us practical homemaking skills. 
And tips to do things efficiently and cost effective. 

But there is the Biblical sense that we are told in scripture for the older, 
Woman to mentor the younger woman! 
To love their Husbands and their children... 
We all need love and support and guidance to be keepers of our Homes! 

Good homemakers do not come with a booklet with the
Directions and steps of 1-10 ...
But rather live and learn, and with many detours!

But homemaking is rather a recipe that can be changed
Or modified,
To fit your location and budget size!

Because we are all so different, but some things are universal!

Maybe we can all look for opportunities to help,
 Love and encourage each others as being home makes.

We have had this stay at home order for weeks now;
I was just hoping many women would have had a real change of heart,
And the desire to make their homes the best place.
And we would all want to stay close to home,
If even just in our hearts...

May being a homemaker never stop being in style or the most important role!

Pray about being a mentor or even looking for an example to learn from!

 And may you have a new beginning in something good...

Much Love And Blessings

Being Teachable And To Learn to Love, Take What You Are Given And Do Not Be Stiff Necked...


Jesus, The Lion And The Lamb, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Not Alone

Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit.
Looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God,
And Jesus  is standing at the right hand of God.
Acts 5:55

Dear Ones, God loves a heart fully dedicated to Him,
Even when dedication results in deep wounds.
God loves a faithful heart!
I look at Stephen and I think he was a super hero of faith!
Being a martyr for truth;
Not backing down!
How can my life be a daily offering?
I will need extravagant grace and brutal honesty in my life.
Interactions with the spiritual opposition will happen to every saved person!
Remember the Word tells us they hated Him first.

What and who are we willing to die for?
This shakes me to the core...
The world is shaking their fists at God.

All I have been called to be is a keeper of this Home!
But;
He has asked older women to teach the younger women
But when others want to cleave to their own ways,
And are really angry at God and the world!
We loose a teachable heart.
We become stiff necked!
Hardened in our ways and words!
Sometimes the truth hurts...
But the word tells us this also,
"The truth will make you free"
We are going to be held accountable to what and how we lived!

I remember thinking as a very young woman;
I am never going to let someone tell me what to do........
Or how to dress!!
What to read or not read...
Where I can go!
I will NOT submit...
I grew mean and bitter I trusted no one really.


"But it happened in a blink for me,"
 I was presented with a truth and love,
I could no longer push away!
"He loved Me"
I submitted to the greatest Authority!
My heart melted and I truly became
His Child

And this is where the Scripture of the title of my Blog becomes
Life and my walk through this world...

Always, Living from Glory To Glory

Hugs, Roxy

How To Make Home Your Haven...


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

~WELCOME~

The Days Are just Flying By...
The month's are also,
As we all know this year is looking much different than anything,
We have ever seen in my lifetime.

But, once again we must rise to the challenges life bring are way.
Make this a positive experience as much as you can!
This country has seen so many things that attempting to knock us down,
Or to destroy us!
But we keep plodding on, and pray and to place one foot in front of the other!

You all know you can only deal with what comes next!
One day at a time for everyone!

Just do something...
Keep your heart calm and keep your hands busy!

Started my Spring cleaning!

Working on some hand sewing, making some more felt birds;
I will be hanging these on my indoor woodland tree!
I think it will make a nice spring\summer look for my tree.

"Here are a few of my felt birds I am sewing"
Felt Birds, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


I have been making the very use of my time with being at Home!

Just maybe we will have an awakening of the love of home...

We have become such transient people, no one enjoys their homes!

But, if you are a person who enjoys the comforts
 That only home can provide.
It is a blessing.
I never wanted to wander far from my home or loved ones!

We must learn how to make our Homes A Haven...
As we are all in need of a safe harbor.

Maybe this will become a turn in the event,
 That we will realize that good, hard work is a gift!
Maybe we will not be so ungrateful for the abundance we have access to.

Start working in your yard, make your area pretty!
We can all do something productive!

Remind yourself and those we love;
We will overcome!

Blessings, Roxy

Make Your List For Spring Cleaning Inside And Out...


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


These little purple crocus flowers, they have done just what they were created to do!

~They gave me hope, and put a smile on my face~

After many months of no color or flowers in my little flower bed.

They have Burst forth from their little bulb to say.

Spring is coming!!

Even when the calendar says spring, it still takes a while for the soil to warm.

It is easy to lose hope if we don't keep our eyes on what is really important.
For the word tells us to everything there is a season.

Now is the time to rekindle all the promises of the plans He has for us.
These little guys did not fail in their job even if they lasted only a few days!

I want to encourage all of my sisters, don't become weary at the tail end of this
"Winter season"

 Complete the rest and start stretching each day to awake to
The Spring work that we be required of us.

Begin with your spring cleaning,
Look, we have these Homes and bits of land, take advantage

Start with maybe your kitchen.
Clean your silverware drawer,

Give a Good Spring Cleaning to Your teacups and mugs,
Fill your sink with bleach water and put all your coffee mugs
And your tea cups in the water for a good soak.

They can get really discolored and stained.
With all the warm cups of tea and coffee that were required in the cold months.


Make Your Lists...
I love spring and I encourage each of you to make a list of fun things to do.
Of course, there is the list of all the flower beds that need cleaning.

And all the garden area to be tilled and the grass raked out.

I like to try and get at least one thing done each day of my spring cleaning!!
It helps me to get my house in order.


Because as soon as it gets warm out I will be outside!

Ice tea and iced coffee (here I come)!

Blessings,
Roxy
