Beauty in Our Homes

Autumn Flowers
Beauty comes from the Lord
He makes ALL things beautiful
Scripture tells us He makes all things new!
I have been praying for creative wisdom,
there are so many amazing and
beautiful things, just waiting
to be created.
We as woman have been given a nesting instinct.
We want to surround ourselves with beauty.
It can be simple and cozy,
or crisp and sleek.
But it must...
Have warmth, and be welcoming!!
Let authentic kindness be its main focus.
Let charity grace its rooms
Let beauty fill its halls.
Beauty and charm ,
comes  from a heart filled with HIM!
Blessings, Roxy

Room for More

 The Rolling Prairie

This is our backyard!
Have you ever driven through a place where
you did not see a person for miles?

It is really hard to believe we abort babies!
There is more then enough room.
What happened to Momma's?
Where have all the children gone?
We need our babies and our children!
Life and Liberty for ALL
Blessings, Roxy

Fiesta Fall And Anaheim Chili's...

Fresh picked Anaheim Chili's

Breakfast For My Man
Autumn time means: Green Chili's!!
We go to one of the many farms in our area and we purchase
around 2 to 4 bushels.
They roast them in a huge rolling roaster bin,
and the fragrance is so unique, it makes your mouth water.
We bring them home with a 10lb. Bag of fresh pinto beans.
Now we put them up by placing them in freezer bags,
Maybe 7 per bag.
  Then put about 5 bags together in another gallon size bag.
We put them in a box and place them in our big freezer. 
I like to put these in casseroles, and in my salsa.
I also make chili rellonos.
My hubby likes them in his omelets.
Now the pinto beans are the most delicious tasting beans ever,
You just rinse and soak them overnight,
Then you put in your crock pot and cover with water 2-3in.
Add a TB. Butter (no salt)

Cook most the day till tender,
 Then now add salt, cumin spice and garlic salt.
After you have had some with your dinner,
 Place extra beans in bags or tubs and freeze.
Learning to buy while in season or on sale and putting back will
save you time and money.

In the house of the wise are stores of choice food
and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.

Blessings, Roxy

A Mothers Heart

My daughter Ashley and Daughter in law Amy
My oldest grandchild Naomi

My precious grand daughters:
Naomi and Hannah

                       Today is a very special day!
                       It is my daughter's Birthday!
         I  just wanted to take some time and celebrate the amazing gifts God has given me,
My girls and my grand daughters.
I speak a blessing over each one of them that they will
be all God has placed in their hearts, and they will
be wise women, and will continue to build their houses.
Her children arise and call her blessed:Proverbs 31:28
I was thinking what words of wisdom could I speak into their lives?
Did I live my life as an example that they would want to follow?
If I had a single flower
for every time I think about you,
I could walk forever in my garden.
In raising my children, it seemed like the days lasted forever,
It was the years that went fast.
Blessings, Mother

We Are The Apple Of His Eye... His Provisions

Living From Glory To Glory Blog
Thank you for apple peelers

Living From Glory To Glory Blog
This fall, we really made the applesauce, it was a lot of work but the rewards
Are worth it all...

My daughter in law and I made 20 pints of applesauce, and 20 pints of apple butter.
 We were blessed with 4 bushels of apples.
 We had so many that we were able to give some away to our dear friends Pam and Steve.
 We really love the apple butter, it tastes so good on toast!
I believe making your own jams and jellies are so rewarding.
I want to really make canning and putting back a big part of our food pantry
~ Also it looks so nice to see it on your shelves~

I know it is tempting to want to put it where everyone can see it,
But it is much wiser to put in a pantry where it is cool and dark.
For the quality and longevity will last much longer,
 if you will be careful as to how you store it.
We also put some up with spices and flour for apple pies,
and put them in the freezer.
We have plum juice made up and in the freezer, and very soon we will
be making our whole families favorite Plum Jelly!
Be encouraged
Be wise
Be frugal
Be prepared!!
Our barns shall be filled with every kind of provision.
Blessings, Roxy

Boots In The Lord's Army

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.
and he delights in his way.
Psalms 37:23
I love this scripture, it fills me with great peace,
and comfort.
Our Father has an amazing journey,
planned for each one of us.
We must keep our hearts focused and diligent.
Be careful to stay on His path.
For He is faithful
Our part is to keep our lives free from the distractions,
so we will be able to run our race.
As the Holy Spirit directs our steps.
Keep your boots strapped on dear ones,
possible rocky trails ahead.
Watch for large rocks,and pot holes.
Keep your eyes opened for bandits.
Just never ever give up!

Granchildren Our Inheritance

Our precious one!
Here is a sweet picture of our 7th grandchild.
His name is David 
He is 4 months old now.
I have yet to hold him in my arms,
For he lives far away from his Grandma and Papa.
He looks so much like his Momma when she was but a baby.
I know that there are many Grandma's who know the heartache
of having their precious grandchildren so far away.
But we as parents all know it it part of our job,
to raise our children to have roots.
Bur also to have wings to go wherever the Lord
leads them.
Blessings, Roxy

Unique Days

Live this Day Abundantly
All of our days kinda line up just like this row,
of pumpkins.
They all look alike, but they are all very different.
Look more closely!
May you see all there is to see.
From the rising of the sun, to it's setting in the west.
May the light of Gods word, be illuminated
for you.
Make sure you have enough oil in your lamps,
for today's journey.
May you go about doing,all there is to do.
And in this doing may it all be for
God's glory.
So as the sun sets in the west you will hear,
Well done good and faithful servant.
The wise virgin took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Matthew 25:4
Blessings, Roxy
