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 22nd June is ♥ ♥
1. Treat this last week as the last 'holiday' week as we prepare for Stephen starting work on the 1st of July.
2. As I am able, to start to get into an exercise routine. I will try not to over plan this one and therefore end up not doing it.
3. Continue on with my preparation for
St. Louis de Montfort's Way: Total Consecration on the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel 16 July.
4. Look at all the different activities the children would like to do now we are staying in Tassie and value them according to our family priorities.
5. Make some of the lovely Fruit Bread Teena made while she was here and re evaluate how much 'comfort and homey' cooking I am doing for our family. Am I showing through this medium how much I love and appreciate them?
6. Enjoy the family time we are blessed to have now and re develop our old night time routine:
