Hearts for Home 4th May ♥

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 4th May is ♥ ♥

1. Enjoy teaching and singing the same old favourite nursery rhymes and songs with our little ones and remember that these are new for them if not for me.

2. Try to keep up the daily lists for Moran so she can know where she is with her daily tasks and routines. I struggle with this one as she goes well and then stops.

3. Get some of the house selling strategies moving. Come on guys let's do this!

4. Plan a birthday celebration for Rogan this coming weekend.

5. Do more sewing with the girls. I enjoyed the time on the weekend with them (not that I got any sewing done though)

6. Find something light to read, not Mothering books or Homeschooling or Special Needs books.
Any suggestions??

Blessings,

#1 is a good reminder for me Gae!
Thank you! Sometimes my exuberance for a certain story or song is a bit waning after having read or sung it for 25 years!!!!

As for light-reads, here are some of my favorites:

A Lantern in Her Hand, by Bess Streeter Aldrich

Angels of Morgan Hill, by Donna Van Liere

The Mitford Series, by Jan Karon

The Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Orczy

Enjoy!

Dear Gae,

To make cookie bouquets:
Choose cookies (I prefer sugar cookies that we decorate) insert a wooden skewer right after baking while the cookies are still soft.
Decorate and wrap each cookie top in cello paper or use a little treat bags.
Arrange desired number of stems to make a bouquet, add ribbon a or other flower bouquet decorations.
Last year we made a bouquet with chocolate dipped marshmallows.

I will use some butterfly, hearts and tulip cookie cutters for our bouquet.

Hope this is not too confusing! :)
Many Blessings,
Melanie
