Publishing My 1000 th Post, And My Name In Lights...

Seeing My Name In Lights...

My sister sent me this picture in a frame many, many years ago
It was a Birthday gift!

Today I am celebrating something special and profound to me.
This little post will be my One Thousand post I have written!
I have taken great joy over these little tidbits of my heart to share.

We all have wisdom to share, and thoughts we must ponder.
I have truly seen so much growth in my own life.
Thinking a lot about these couple words and their meaning.
~Strength and Hope~

I believe God does deposit these things daily.
But we must desire them and press into Him for His direction.

Sometimes we just need to shake off the dullness.
We are called to gird up our loins!

I want to encourage each of you with these words;
You're stronger than you think!

When we get weary, we have things we can do!

Sometimes we just need to rest...
Do not become your own taskmaster...
Choose JOY
Be Prepared...
Spend as if every dollar is precious...
Give when you can...

Realize anything you set your hand to can prosper...
But never compare yourself to anyone else...
Do something small, yet do it well...

I am just so amazed how God showed me to take
what He has put in my hand and use it for His Glory!
I believe He gave me the title of my Blog.
~Living from Glory To Glory~

Many thanks for those that visited my Blog
 over all these years!

I always loved the idea of having a Cafe
Of course I would serve teas and scones!

I have met some lovely ladies through the years.
Some have become dear friends.
And all those heart warming comments!
Blogging is a little corner, I have been given to share my heart!

Inspire yourself!
Inspire Others!

Use your One Talent you have been given!
Just don't bury it!!

Here is the gift my sister gave me years ago!

Blessings, Roxy

Keep It Simple and Cozy...

Little Pumpkins, living From Glory To Glory Blog

Don't Be Overwhelmed...

That's easy to say, but doing it is another matter!

This is the beginning of the holidays;

Make some decisions now to really enjoy them.

By doing things in a less extravagant way.

Being intentional and enjoying the process and not

Worrying about the final results.

I for one can say you can stop spending a lot of money,

 and avoiding stress!

Make it sweet and peaceful!

I would rather do one thing well and not try to do everything!

Pick something that is meaningful to you;

And something you enjoy doing!

Make it real...

We do not have to be like the Norman Rockwell paintings!

Realize that so much is commercialized!

Take time and do the little things!

The stores are mobbed!

So many food items may even go to waste!

Don't get sucked into the Insatagram or Pinterest photos and ideas!

Remind yourself, we still may have some very hard times ahead of us!

Stop the crazy train...

Do what is in your heart...

Reserve your strength...

Count the cost...

Will it create good memories...

Will it be relevant in a months time?

Enjoy it with those you love and care for...

~Be Calm And Carry On~

Blessings & Grace

Hugs, Roxy

How To Do Ribbon Embroidery And A Little Note...

~Ribbon Embroidery~

I was so happy and excited to learn this really easy and fun way to do embroidery.
It is very forgiving in the way it covers and fills in.
I started with some muslin fabric and some ribbons of lovely colors that are a bit thin.
 You will be able to tell quickly, which size needle goes through the fabric.
 And also a large eye needle
 And for convenience, I bought some iron on transfers of some pretty flowers.

You will really enjoy this and it makes some very pretty gift ideas.

After I was finished embroidering, 
I gave it a  finished look by sewing on some lace trimming!
Now, I have a lovely handmade doily...

Dear Readers,
 As we can all see things are a bit unsettling.
So now more than ever we must focus on our homes!

Set your hand to projects that will bring you peace for a little
while each day. This will help balance out your heart and mind!

This is the time of year to buy many items in surplus because
of holiday cooking. Look for those deals and put them back.
We need to keep a deep pantry with this economy!

Look through and find things you can repurpose to decorate!

Wash all those warm throws for keeping warm and cozy this winter!

Make small amounts of soups to enjoy for dinner!

Pull out your winter jackets and wash them to freshen them up!

Buy some shoe polish and make your shoes look brand new!

Be wise and put as much back as you can;
Because you could be paying much more very soon!

Clean out your cupboards and organize!

If you can, buy a food saver with the jar attachment,
For keeping dry foods fresher longer!

Don't neglect reading the Word!

Keep taking care of yourself...

~Do not allow the spirit of heaviness to enter your home~

Please know how much we all need one another!
Encourage each other
Love your family
Love your Home

Hugs, Roxy
