Hearts for Home ♥ ♥ 10th August

In today’s busy and aggressive society mothers at home are not given much encouragement to be committed to their role in being home.

In my weekly 'Hearts for Home' post I am encouraging myself and others to commit to thinking about what 4-6 things we can do each week to bring our thoughts, prayers and actions to keeping our 'Hearts for Home'.

I am praying that a spirit of gentleness, generosity in thoughts and time along with loveliness and grace would lead us to be all that God wants us to be.

I pray also that each person involved in 'Hearts for Home' would also pray for any others involved as well.

May you be blessed by this initiative. I pray it brings you and your family many blessings.

So each week list 4-6 things you will commit to that will keep your "Hearts for Home'.
Please leave a you name and a link to your blog (if you don't have one just leave your list in the comment box)and perhaps a comment so we can all see and encourage each other.

If you would like, add the 'Hearts for Home' logo to your side bar as a reminder of your goals.
God Bless you this week.

♥ Please leave a link to your Hearts for Home Edition on the Mister Linky at the end of the post, so we can all come and visit. ☺ ♥♥

I also have decided I need to print out my list so I can constantly refer to it and therefore keep it in my mind. I also need to have it put up where I can see it constantly.

My list for the 10th August is ♥♥

1. To concentrate on the NEEDS of my family and to respond to them.
2. To always keep my voice in the Gentleness range, but also filled with love and patience.
3. To be relaxed about perhaps not sticking to the lesson plans with sick children.
4. Just spend time with Stephen and the children whil he is home for these few days.
5. To tell each of the children( and my Honey when he is home) how much I love them and appreciate the contributions they make in our home each day.
6. To focus on the good things that happen and not let the reminders of past failures or unpleasent things feature in my thoughts.
