Hearts For Home ♥ ♥ 2nd 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 2nd February is ♥ ♥

1. I really want to focus on helping the children get back into a 'schooling' frame of mind. So this means I need to concentrate on them and not my own distractions or interests.

2. To be really organised at the end (that means for me, being committed to this goal) of the day so our new "night time routine" will flow. We had good success with it last night and hopefully it will be successful long term.

3. Be conscious of tension that may result from keeping on track. Especially from those children who are more easily stressed by adjustments.

4. Allow time for the OT exercises with Arwen and Moran. I have them built into the day but my focus can easily be shifted by other more' important' calls on my attention.

5. Take time for my own spiritual growth as well as some relaxation time. Make this a priority!!

6.To prayerfully consider our situation and to allow God to direct this, perhaps without my insisting on what the outcome should be. This is a tough one for me, please pray for some resolution to be shown to us.

Has Arwen had her assessment yet? Have I missed it? How did it go?

I will pray for you in these worthy commitments Gae...especially that last one...I had a priest/retreat master tell me once, "The results belong to God and God alone"...Ohhhh my, that was a tough one to get my head around...after all...when we are faithful and keeping our focus and center as it should be...then have we no right to expect a certain outcome? The answer was, and is: "No...we really do not have that right"...took me some time, but I am coming to understand it better...I will pray that you do as well:)
