Hearts For Home ♥ ♥ 10th November

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 would also appreciate you linking back here too.☺ ♥ ♥

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 November is ♥ ♥

1. To help the children in their writing they are doing for The Young Writers Division of NaNoWriMo. They are still very enthused by this and I wan to continue to encourage them in this.

2. To finally visit the lady Father asked me to visit a few weeks ago.

3. I plan to make Laundry soap using this recipe

4. To ENJOY the planning for our Advent Plans.

5. To really focus on spending play time with the children, especially the little ones and make time for big kid play time ~ aka: talking.

6. Start to plan and make Christmas presents for the children as we do a super cheap Christmas this year.

Gae, I really appreciate what you say about playing with the children. That is the language they understand. How can we ask them to listen to us and do all of the work we assign if we don't take the time to play with them and listen to them? I am convinced that you can't "spoil" children with too much time and attention! They may think they want toys or playthings, but what they really want is time with their parents!

Hi Gae,
It's so important that we spend quality time with our children, as all too soon they will be grown up with families of their own.

Is my blog page quicker loading now? Hopefully it's fixed.

I like this list very much!
It seems we both have "chatting" with our teens on our minds this week!
And I LOVE how you say "enjoy the planning of the plans"...that's GREAT!
We have made laundry soap for two years now and I think it's great. I did "up" the measurements of the dry ingredients a bit from the recipe I use. I didn't look at your recipe, but don't be afraid to "tweak" it if you feel the need!
Have a blessed week and thank you for this meme!
P.S. I also love what your visitor (Cross Stitching) wrote about the importance of playing with our children!
Thank you ladies!
