Shrimp On Angel Hair Pasta Quick And Easy Meal...



Easy Shrimp Dinner, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Shrimp served on Angel Hair Pasta

I always like to keep a bag of frozen raw shrimp in my freezer;
You can get a bag at the super market for under eight dollars.

It's really handy for a quick meal when the day has gotten away from you!

I did make this last night and it was delicious!
The angel hair pasta cooks up so very fast and is light.
I always like to add onions and garlic and olive oil and butter,
The sauce is mostly butter, so You can a dash of sweet and sour!

Or just add more olive oil and garlic salt!

Delicious and you can make and serve this in a flash...

I made a clip to share with you!




I am enjoying using Bloggers Video Clips!

I am not sure I want all the things that go along with YouTube Channel!

Still researching the pros and cons...

Should I Start A YouTube Channel...


Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


I have been trying to decide if opening a YouTube Channel is for me??

What are the benefits?
Would I enjoy having to create a video clip for it?
I guess I could just experiment and see where it goes!
I did not even realize blogger had a place to do this on my blog!

Well, welcome to a new decade...
Do you have any suggestions or comments!

The quality of this video is not good at all;
But once again, I would be entering a new learning curve!

I have to ask myself if this is a good way to use my time;
And will this reach more people?
Also, Maybe I should just use Blogger and not bother with YouTube!
I could sure use some feedback!
Thanks so much!

I guess everything is really trial and error,
It is how we learn and overcome the things we do not know how to do!

Why We Should Start A Grateful Journal...



Why We Should Be Grateful, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Starting A Grateful Journal...

It is never too late to start a grateful journal;
But maybe starting it at the beginning of a New Year,
We do not have to implement all our ideas for the new year on January 1st!
Sometimes it takes time to do the very things that will bless us.

But this idea;
Could be a great way to practice being grateful!

I found a journal that I have had for years and much to my surprise,
It was filled over a decade of time of things I was grateful for!

So do we have to learn the art of being Grateful?
Yes, I believe we do!
It is so much easier to just be busy in any given day;
We can become distracted and often overwhelmed.
In many seasons we can be what I called a survival mode.

But once you start taking the time and look for those things,
 That come from our sweet heavenly Father;
 You will want to start treasuring those little things and big things!

We need to make time for journaling things that can give us joy;
Because In times of trial or lean days we can find hope.

Being grateful is one of the most powerful weapons!
We can ward off discouragement and anxiety!
And bring us back to a peaceful state of mind.
Because we can look back and see that the Lord has done to bless us!

This simple thing can bring you great joy!
Because we can feel lonely or forsaken at times.
And it's truly just not true...

Train yourself to look for the things in everyday life;
To be grateful for!!

I have picked up that very old grateful notebook,
And I am adding things often that I am grateful for!

I think this will be a legacy of the sweet gifts from the Lord...

Blessings to you all!
Hugs, Roxy

The History Of the Twelve Days Of Christmas...


Twelve Days Of Christmas, Two Turtle Doves, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


The History of 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
 Jesus Christ on the Cross!

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.


The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.

Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.

Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.

The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.

The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.

The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.

Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit--Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.

The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.

Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control.

The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.

The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.

As a young Christian I have always wondered about how long it took the wise
Men to come to the place, where Baby Jesus was!


The 12 days of Christmas is the period that in Christian theology marks the span between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi, the three wise men. It begins on December 25 (Christmas) and runs through January 6 (the Epiphany, sometimes also called Three Kings' Day). The four weeks preceding Christmas are collectively known as Advent, which begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on December 24.

It can all be a bit overwhelming; But I think sometimes it
Can help us realize there is more to the story!

I also learned some of these facts from wikipedia.com,
I remember as a child many of the families in our neighborhood,
Always left their Christmas tree and decorations up well into
January...

Most of my friends were from the Catholic or Lutheran Dedominations.

I just heard my grandson say its so weird that right after Christmas,
It all just ends!
Well, I guess we find that after we have had our Christmas stuff up 
Since right after Thanksgiving, we get tired of having it up!

Personally, I always feel a bit sad that it all ends so quickly!

I may just leave it all up for a while longer this year!!

This is all really quite interesting, But we can take it or leave it!

Just A Thought...

Can We Re-Gift A Gift We Have Received...


Gifts, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Is It Okay To Re-Gift?

I remember the first time I found myself giving a gift;
That I had received from someone that was not what I needed!
I must of had two of them.
That was when I had to decide whether it was a proper thing to do!

I did end up giving it as this other person would enjoy it,
And get some use out of it!
Where I would not be doing that at all.

You must always be aware of who gave it and never,
Give something away that would hurt the person's feelings,
If they ever found out!
And always keep those things that a child or an old friend shared a treasure from their hearts!

And in some circumstances you can even say;
Hey, I was given two of these ______
And I thought you might enjoy having this one!


But if you are given three sets of something, or double;
Then I believe there are times we can re-gift...

There have been times I have given gifts
 I have gotten from an antique store.
And even Goodwill, I may have had to repaint or fix!

I even buy simple things that are on sale and save to give later!

So have I re-gifted?
Yes...

But trust me it was a blessing to another and I enjoyed sharing!

Just use wisdom and never do it if it could damage,
A relationship or friendship!


And beware that one day you may find yourself on the receiving
End of the re-gifting line.
And so if you find yourself with hurt feelings.
This will help you decide re-gifting is not acceptable to you!

We all have so much in a world of stuff...
I think that is why so many are even asking others to not bring a gift;
But rather donate to a worthy cause...

Also a homemade gift is always so sweet and a treat to eat!

Do You Have A Happy Home...

Happy Home, Living From Glory To glory Blog...



Home...

Sometimes we can become so overwhelmed with life...

That is why it is so important to make a place where we can rest and keep;
Ourselves and our loved ones safe and happy!

Have you ever experienced this;
When out driving in the evenings after it has gotten dark, and as you drive past,
Many homes, I can almost feel which homes are Happy Homes...

They have a special look or a warmth that just permeates the darkness!

Everything takes work, but some types of work just bring a
Greater JOY...

I know some people do not celebrate Christmas, but I do!
There are some things we can do with our family's  that just keeps
Their hearts at HOME

We always try to gather here in Grandmas Home to eat,
And enjoy a Sunday dinner!

We always try to have the Christmas Eve dinner here also!

I love all the twinkle lights all year round;
I always keep a strand that is at the bottom of our mantel.

I believe there is magic in a woman's heart that desires to do
All the little and big things that make their homes special!

And cozy and warm and comfortable and filled with a gentle, quiet in your heart!

I believe winter is the time of year we can rest and recover!
It gets dark out so early and we can enjoy the quiet of the evenings.

In the years long ago, it was good to get a good night's rest!

I can't control the world, but I can at least monitor my home!

When we learn to enjoy the little things and desire;
To live in a way that allows time to enjoy your food!
Enjoy the moments to read the Word.
Calling a friend or mailing a letter to encourage!
Move slower and enjoy the aroma of the love of HOME...

I love having the Hope and Joy and Peace that comes from being content!
Beware of watching all the commercials that tell us how bad we need it!

I must say I so enjoy those Hallmark commercials;
Someone always starts tearing up.

May I encourage you all to stop and enjoy the little things in life!
Learn to stay away from things and people that want to push your buttons;
As we must stay in peace, I use to say this'
Do you want to keep the peace or do you want to be right?

Please remember the reason for the season!

Blessings Dear Friends
Roxy

A Woman's Place Is In...


White Teapot & A Rose Teacup... Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


~A Woman's Place Is In~

Being in the right place at the right time...

Being in a quiet place with sweet fellowship with her Savior
"Jesus Christ"

Being a woman that desires to invest in her family.

Being loyal and showing respect to her husband.

Being happy and taking care of yourself.

Being fruitful in her spiritual growth
(Become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ)
Ephesians 4:13

Being aware of the needs that the Lord shows you.

Being able to turn small talk toward something deeper.
(God Talk)

Being able to protect those that she loves.

Being willing to learn and to be flexible.

Being kind is a character trait we need to aspire to!

Being able to STOP and assess a situation!

Being able to value what the Lord values.

Being able to rest and enjoy Gods Blessings...

The woman is an incredible gift to our families and homes;
We have so much to give and share...
We nurture and help others to grow and appreciate Life...

Learning And Loving each and every day...

Why We Must Take The Right Path In the Right Boots...

Spiritual Boots, The Right Path, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


I love a good pair of boots!

As the old saying goes until you have walked in their shoes;
Or may I rephrase in their boots.
We never really know the road some must travel on.

But when we see so much walking in the wrong direction;
Or walking upon a slippery slope, we only can hope they
Can perceive the Danger Zone just ahead!

Or maybe so many are just zoned out and not tuned in!

But I write this Blog to encourage those that have hearts that love Home...
We all know that in order to live the life that brings contentment;
Is going to take some work and endurance...

Everything does not have to be a chore, but more of this feels good!
Look at what you have done to keep things running smoothly!

One thing you can count on is an uphill battle.
But when we are prepared for the long haul in life.
You will be able to keep on trucking...

When you think about all the different kinds of material and styles for our feet!
I always can see the spiritual side of most everything.

Ballerina slippers are made for a specific job;
Pretty and light with a tough toe...
So they can twirl and go about as a ballerina.

Now, Combat boots are for rough terrain!
Stones, mud, cold, heat, but they are resilient.

Take a pair of slippers, comfy and cozy,
But no real support!

High heels look fashionable, but you could break your neck!

Sneakers can be used for sports, walking and everyday wear!

But boots, are required spiritually to get the next thing done!

Where you set your spiritual feet upon what path;
Will matter and can change the course of your life
Eternal and the now!

I always loved the saying;
~You Can't Keep A Good Woman Down~

Blessings, Roxy
