Redeeming The Time...

Never Give Up, Living from Glory To Glory Blog

 The Time Is Now

Redeeming the time, Because the days are evil.

One thing I am always amazed at is how even in trials and unrest;
Our God will give us times of rest. Free from pain or lack of sleep.

Redeeming the time is something we can do every single day!
We will not always even be aware that we are redeeming the time.

It really is always on God's timetable!
I believe even those little prayers we breath out can change a situation.

We must refuse and resist the urge to give up!
I am always filled with wonder when I see someone who
overcomes and keeps planting a certain flower seed.
Believing it will sprout and give her a beautiful flower garden.

We are drawn to the scriptures and the stories of those that,
Did not give up and persevered in hard times.

Some call it pure grit;
I call it pure Grace...

I believe this country has a divine destiny USA
I believe each person that is part of Gods elect will fulfill
All that God has given him or her to do!

Fill your heart with fuel to travel far!

But there is only a gap to stop and reflect on what is important!
The future is certain, you are part of His plan!
He will use us if we are willing!

Let not your heart be troubled...

All Lies And Deceptions Will Be Exposed...

Sweet Plum Blossoms, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

 What's Real?

We are so blessed to be able to enjoy what is real...

Don't be fooled by lies promoted by so many times to dull your senses!

The sky can have many different colors;

After a rain storm, or a storm moving in.

 And when the sun is rising in the early morning!

Or when the sun is setting in the west.

But ultimately we will all know the sky is Blue.

True nature will not change!

The blossoms on a fruit or flowering tree will smell sweet.

The true fragrance can not be denied.

Don't walk around in a cloud or a haze of indifference.

I always have loved being convinced in my own heart of what scripture says,

About everything...

If you study the real artifact or painting, you will be able to

spot the imposter or fake one. But even in that there are such

perfect imposters if it were possible you could be fooled.

But I choose to believe that all the lies and deceptions will be exposed!

Some have even tried to take a Rainbow and make it to represent

something other than a symbol of God's promise to never allow the Earth

To be destroyed by a flood ever again!

Stand On The Promises Of God Your Savior...

Learning To Hold Your Post...

 

Flow Blue Antique Bowl, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Pretty In Blue

A pretty simple blue bowl can make me happy!

I have learned to stop allowing the weirdness of this culture and world;

To make my life miserable!

We must live with purpose and impact!

There are more plots to destroy your peace than ever before!

But just ignore most the chatter and get busy living!

Is there ever a day that goes by that you were not able to do something?

It truly will be the little things that bring comfort!

Do not give up the fight to be at peace and keeping your home a refuge!


My advice to you today will be to be mindful of being frugal!

Do those little remakes and upcycle of your goods!

Spray painting my outdoor decor and painting little wooden items!

Go through your drawers and cupboards and rearrange some of your decor.

~Do not allow yourself to become weary in doing good~


Refuse to be a part of the woke weirdness,

Be strong and courageous in your homemaking and family.

Keep your haven clean and tidy.

Turn off what brings disturbance to your mind or heart!

You can learn to be content and rich with really very simple living!

Many women are still holding their post!

Just don't survive; But overcome...

Keep your heart tender and strengthen your hands!

Always dear Ones, Kindred spirits...

Hugs, Living From Glory To Glory

Blue Flax Flowers, Living from Glory To Glory Flowers...
I love these flowers called Blue Flax

I do hope you are enjoying the flowers blooming everywhere!

Remember to stop and smell the Roses...

Beware Of The Dangers Of Engaging In Gossip...

Beware Of The Dangers Of Gossip, Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Beware Of The Dangers Of Engaging In Gossip


How wonderful it is that the Holy Spirit will convict you of your sin!

If you love the Lord and you want to please Him, He will have to teach you 
Many things as you live and grow in Him daily!

If you have been a Christian and have read your Bible often;
You would of read many scriptures about gossip.
But many times we just skim over a certain passage because it's
Along side words like murder or adultery;
As these sins may not be anything you have done.
But tucked along side these words are the words like gossip or malice and slander.

So I am grateful to be shown the error of my ways;
Maybe it was not done with the intent to cause harm, But
It's still wrong for me to engage in this behavior.

Beware of the danger of Gossip...

We can still get caught in a trap of our thinking or words we speak.

When you think of sin, it's usually something really bad;
So we can be unaware of the sin of Gossip!

Gossip can start out just repeating something you saw or heard,
And can quickly turn into a terrible wave of lies and malice and
Just plain old strong imagination or evil intent.
Or just not being mindful of what is coming out of one's mouth...
So I am grateful that I have recognized this sin creeping into my speaking!
It started out small, (speaking my opinions, or speaking too quickly)
We must strive to not allow gossip to rule our speaking!
Getting caught up in the moment going to cause too many words spoken,
That may not be going through your filter!
The one God gave you!
 So use it and ask Him to convict you of this sin often!


Gossip can ruin a marriage, cause someone to lose their job or ministry!
Destroy a friendship, cause discord in a family.

I can remember years ago a lovely older woman reminding me that
What I had just said to her was probably gossip, because I did not know all the facts!
Second and third hand information is dangerous to repeat!
And my opinion is faulty at best!
Only Gods Word is without fault!

This is why we must repent daily of our sins!
We must be teachable!
We must be able to take correction from the Holy spirit!



~Stop and look both ways before you speak~
Living From glory to Glory Blog... Do Not Gossip

Sharing this portion from Bible Study Tools.com

Bible Verses about Speaking Gossip and Slander

Everyone has experienced the harm of gossip before. Whether the people talking didn't mean direct harm, the result of gossip is always broken trust and hurt feelings. Gossip can be defined as information about the behavior or personal life of other people, often without the full truth revealed or known. God's Word warns us to stay away from people who gossip and to guard our words when we speak about others!

Scripture also uses the word slander which means making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation. Slander can destroy someone's marriage, job, wealth, and family. The tongue has power and we must be careful with how we use our words. The Bible tells us what words we should speak and which we should not. If you are struggling with gossip or know someone who gossips a lot, study these Bible verses and choose to help put a stop to it.



2 Corinthians 12:20

For I am afraid that when I come I may not find you as I want you to be, and you may not find me as you want me to be. I fear that there may be discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder.

Romans 1:28-32
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

How I Make My Version Of Minestrone Soup...


Minestrone Soup, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


~Stay Calm And Make Soup~

These are the days for making soup for your family;
Even if you are feeding just yourself or a whole family!
Soup is nourishing and economical to make.
Soup is easy to digest
Soup can be made with so many different ingredients!
It can be served in lovely soup bowls or
your best china bowls!

We think of soup as a meal for cold and wintry days,
But soup can be eaten in every season!
You can make a hearty soup or a very light one.
Served with a slice of bread or crackers!

In a very fine restaurant you will even find a cold soup,
Such as vichyssoise, its a delicious soup made from
pureed leeks and potatoes, cream and chicken stock!
Also Gazpacho soup, this soup is spicy,
made with raw chopped vegetables,
Such as tomatoe, onions, peppers, and cucumbers.
This is delicious...

But this Minestrone Soup is wonderful!

This little clip, is one I did a long time ago so I thought,
I would add it to this post!




Minestrone Soup

This is a wonderful hearty soup filled with good things!

You can make this soup in your crock-pot or on top of the stove.
It has simple ingredients you will mostly have them in your kitchen,
Except maybe the zucchini, so pick up those fresh, 
They will last in the fridge for about 4-5 days.

Ingredients Needed

Start with 3-4 cups water or beef broth
If using water, add some beef bullion for your broth
Italian sausage, 
About 1 pound cooked
(Brown it up nicely in a frying pan)
1/2 cup lentils
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can diced tomatoes
2 small zucchinis


On the side have some angel hair pasta pre-cooked!
You can use any type of precooked pasta
(Don't add this to your crock-pot)

After the soup is done, lentils are soft;
Add; Sliced zucchinis
Cook for another 45 min or less till zucchinis are done
(Don't let the zucchinis get mushy)

Serve; In a bowl, add a handful of your cooked pasta,
Ladle a scoop of soup onto the noodles.

The Waiting Process...

 Stay Calm And Wait, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Enjoying The Last Portion Of Winter

It's not quite spring and we will surely get some more snow,

But I have faith that the crocus flowers will appear again!

One thing that has always brought me calm and peace;

Is my HOME

Sometimes cleaning and meal preparation,

Even washing dishes, or tidying up a room

is a healing balm to my soul.

Sometimes we can get anxious in the waiting process.

But actually it is in this waiting process, we grow.

We can keep busy and occupy while we wait:

As a homemaker, I can get a job that needs attending to

and get busy and as they say getter done (smiles)

Some days it seems the term puttering around the 

Home is a bit more accurate.

The world appears to be in a stage I do not recognize.

Keeping oneself calm and at peace can be challenging!

Watching too much news is not wise;

Don't talk about politics or world affairs with people

who do not agree with your belief in Christ?!

As it seems to lead to almost a verbal lashing.

Yet, we can talk to others about our faith and Christ!

Remember the government is on His shoulders!!


Here are a few quotes we have all heard or read before;

Home is among the holiest words.
A true home is one of the most sacred of places
It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world's perils and alarms.
It's a resting place to which at the close of the day,
The weary retire to gather new strength,
For the battles and toils of tomorrow.
It is the place where love learns its lessons,
where life is schooled into discipline and strength,
Where character is molded.

By J.R. Miller 


As the years pass, I'm coming more and more to understand
That it is the common everyday blessings,
Of our common everyday lives for which we should be
Particularly grateful.
They are the things that fill our days with comfort and our hearts with gladness.

By Laura Ingalls Wilder

Keep watch over your Heart and Home...
Blessings, Roxy

Do You Observe Lent?...


Lent Season, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Observing Lent

I have never observed Lent Season before,
I took the time and did some interesting research;
I found it all very refreshing and rich.
And with a sincere heart motive I am participating.

Lent Season

Repentance and understanding Christ sacrifice for us!
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of this season.
But I know you can start it any time as long as it is
Before Easter or shall I call it Resurrection Day!

When we sang this song on the evening of Ash Wednsday;
It was something that touched and stirred my heart!

It is only God who can grant us pardon from our sins!
And the prison we are captive in!

I always wondered what the Ashes signified?
Ashes are really just dust.
After Palm Sunday, they take the palms and burn them!
These are the ashes they used for the service.


 Ecclesiastes 3:20
All go to one place;
All are from the dust,
And all return to the dust.

Genesis 3:19
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And dust you shall return.

All I can say it has a very rich meaning,
if taken to heart and not done as some ritual.

Sometimes when I pray that phrase has been used,
 I am but dust...

Life is so fragile and its good to be reminded of that.

I can truly say I have never given up anything for Lent!
Wasn't even sure if I wanted to.

This line in the song convicted me;
We are jealous, proud and impatient,
loving over much our things;
may the yielding of our failings be
Our Lenten offerings.

So as I have chosen to give up something for 40 days
I will pray to consecrate myself
 in my thoughts and words and deeds.
Even the 40 days are symbolic!

Have you ever given up something as onto the Lord?

I have so much to learn!
So thankful for God's grace to learn for eternity...

Blessings, Roxy

We Are Being Transformed From Glory To Glory, And Why Don't She Write...

 

Being Transformed, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Why Don't She Write...

Sometimes I just need to be quiet and reflect,

Especially when you are blind sided, by a friend,

Or a death of a loved one. 

And with all that is going on in our world!

One thing I have been seeing is a thing I will call projection;

Not fully aware I can explain what I am talking about.

When we are the target of someone's rejection that they feel,

They will project it on to you!

The saying goes like this

What they are accusing you of is what they are doing!

I have seen it in the media and it may be just good old fashion

Brainwashing folks!

I will just say I believe the attacks will continue.

Either from someone you trusted, or

A world leader gone mad...

When we are the object of wrath from someone or something;

I will stop and reflect, pray ponder, repent.

Being in a place of peace is profound!

Everything we are or hope to be is from the positional place

We will walk and live out, once we are saved is all...

IN CHRIST JESUS

The miracle of transformation.

Grace will be a subject of eternal revelation!

We will be learning forever and ever!

God will be the teacher!

And the school term will be Eternity!

When someone tries to teach you something in anger and superiority;

Beware, it comes from a different spirit!

His Kindness towards us in Christ Jesus!

May we be kind and forgive all those who have trespassed against us,

Only after we have asked forgiveness of our sins and trespasses.

The Lord has told us He will forgive us as we forgive others!


Make time to be refreshed!

Start A New Project!

I shared with you in the top photo some,

 pretty stickers and Washi tape.


Blessings, Roxy

How To Make Fabric Coasters For Your Home...

 


I Have enjoyed Using These Homemade Coasters...


Sometimes we just need a new idea for using up extra fabric!

How I made My Fabric Coasters

Here Is The Blog Post With The How To Video

Click For Video Link


I was thinking about how popular coasters use to be!

And the reasons we used coaster!

We used them on our coffee tables and end table so we

Did not ruin or damage our furniture!

I have also had someone put either a hot beverage and literally ruin the wood.

And if you put a cold beverage on top of a magazine it will sweat and leave a 

Ring that does not go away and can ruin the cover of your magazine.

And it's not I am super picky, it's just that when I get a lovely magazine;

And it gets ruined and it no longer looks inviting to read (smiles)



This is a great sewing project to use up some of your smaller
Pieces of fabric!
Or you only have to purchase a small amount;
You can decide to make only a set of two or as many as you want!
I like them because they are not very high wear a cup or glass can tip off!



Here are some of the things I used to make mine!
I also added the video to help!

My goal was to make some for every season!
I made some to give to my family and friends.
They really make lovely gifts...
These are also a very Frugal Gift Idea You can Make!


Cut out the fabric out in the size of 6x6


Cut your batting out the size of 5x5
You can use a thin batting or slightly thicker.






Use your straight pins to secure batting to the fabric,
Pin each corner and leave an opening to turn it inside out
Once it is completely finished!
Now you will sew all around the batting!
Remember to stay straight and even;
Because this will determine the shape of the square!




Once you finish sewing all the way around;

(Keep and inch opened for turning it inside out)

You will trim off the excess on the corners so it is not bulky!


Sew straight, Leave an opening to turn, Cut off excess tips!



I usually cut out the fabric and batting to size,
And place batting in the center and pin them on.
And I leave two pins straight up and down to remind me
To not close up the opening for turning it!
Then when I have them all pinned and ready I will start sewing them!




I took a photo of a few of the different ones I have made!

I do hope this will inspire you to try your hand at making

Something for your home!

Sewing

Cooking

Baking

All things BEAUTIFUL...

Blessings, Roxy
