Hearts For Home ♥ ♥ 16th February

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 16th February is ♥ ♥

1. To prepare myself and the children for our Lenten sacrifices. Prepare our hearts to be welcoming to the hardships that draw us closer to Jesus.

2. To encourage the children in these sacrifices by a cheerful attitude and helpful hands.

3. Prepare our Stations of the cross this year as an outdoor setting instead of indoors as we have in the past.

4. Pray for those outside our family, whose needs are greater than our own.

5. To remember to bring beauty and order into our home as a way of helping a peaceful presence in our home ~ a sanctuary form the cares and concerns outside.

6. To be thankful for the love and devotion of a loving husband and caring children and to show them unconditional love at all times in all circumstances.

Blessings,

Beautiful list as always Gae...I love that you compare our homes to a SANCTUARY!
Seems our two families are switching norms this year...we USUALLY have outdoor stations but must "bring them inside" this year due to snow so deep in the woods that the Littles can't walk!
I pray that the Lord will bestow the PEACE that you seek upon your home and family! Thank you for helping us all to create DOMESTIC JOY!
