Celebrate Your Special Days...

Celebrations, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the juniper, the box tree, and the cypress together,

To beautify the place of My sanctuary: and I shall make the place of my feet glorious.

Isaiah 60:13

~Celebrate Your Special Days~

Keep the spirit of hope and giving alive!

Did you know that celebrating Christmas was rejected?

When: during the times in early America!

The Puritans deliberately passed a law

 that all must work on December 25.

For a time it literally was illegal to cook plum pudding

Or mincemeat pie!

I have seen a trend of people trying to get away from the commercialism,

Of Christmas and other Holidays.

I can understand a portion of this, but as I see a sadness also.

Because even in the Word we see the special days celebrated!

How we celebrate them can be fitted for each family.

But let us not have each day of the year be just the same.

Look for the little things to celebrate...

A Birthday

A Retirement

A Lunch Date

You don't have to do everything elaborate or costly!

We do not want to lose the joy of accomplishments,

Or to recognize a special day!

This life can become dull and nothing special to look forward to!

We are Blessed To Be A Blessing...

I think of the High Holy Days in the Holy Bible,

They were special and celebrated!

The festival of Lights

Let us make some of our traditions a matter of the heart!

We don't have to do just as the world does;

But do something unique and special...

Let's not become joyless in giving and sharing!

Be mindful and tender hearted!

We all need love and tenderness in our lives!

It's not how much something cost!

It's that you thought enough of someone to give a little something!

Throughout the year, even the Dollar store has cute little things,

That could be given as gifts!

This is just my sediment and way of thinking!

Every day can be a day of celebration...

We know that it is more blessed to give than to receive!

He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord!

Romans 14:6

I have been busy doing little projects that are easy yet keeping me home

Where it's warm and safe.

I want to encourage each of you to keep looking up!

Because there is Hope and Joy in everything we do unto God!
Don't be robbed of the little enjoyments given to us!

"Even if it's small be a giver and take joy in it"

As always, Living From Glory To Glory
Hugs, Roxy

Be convinced in your own mind!
Ask God what you should do!
But I do take pleasure in celebrating!

The New Covenant does not advocate the observance of any Christian holy days, but neither does it forbid such observance. Romans 14:5 appears to be the guiding principle: “One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.” If a Christian is going to observe a holy day, he/she should be fully convinced that it does not violate God’s Word, that it can be done to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31), and that it would be spiritually beneficial (1 Corinthians 6:1210:23).


  1. Such wise, encouraging words! God bless!

  2. I completely agree with you. Some Christians make Christianity look like a dismal lifestyle. Who would want to live that miserable existence? Not I!

  3. I agree with you and believe there is hope and joy at every turn if we look for it. Christmas blessings to you! xo Diana

  4. Thank you for sharing these lovely thoughts Roxy. I especially appreciated you sharing Romans 14:5 Merry Christmas to you and your family ~ Linda

  5. Merry Christmas to you and your family Mrs. Roxy!

  6. Exactly what we are doing Roxie! Much love to you and your family! Sherry

  7. I hope you and your family had very enjoyable Christmas celebrations and that your New Year is off to a good start! I am also hopeful that you might be able to post more often in the coming year... there seem to be fewer and fewer places to find encouragement about being a "homemaker" and finding joy in being at home. I love being a homemaker and having opportunities to minister to our growing family, but, doesn't it seem the world absolutely hates that notion... like it's a totally bizarre thought process. Blessings to you for your faithfulness and encouraging us all to keep running the race set before us!


I really appreciate your comments! May they be kind and helpful to encourage my walk, and bless others as they read them. Thank-you!
