Hearts For Home ♥ ♥ 1st December

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 1st December is ♥ ♥

1. Just getting through the week.

2. Being patient with ALL the children as we cope with the stresses of this week.

3. To help Kynan and Braedon in their needs as they adjust to a week of long physical labour.

4. To offer a home that even in trials and stress is a refuge. This means keeping my own heart open to the needs of all.

5. DO NOT panic or think I have been unfair to the children if we don't achieve much this first week of Advent.

6. To take every opportunity to pray, including our Novena's and to offer our own difficulties for those special people I am praying for.

I'm trying not to panic right now. We had the WORST first day back after the long weekend. I'm kicking myself for letting the kids go so many days without math and reading. They lost a few thousand brain cells:)
