Hearts for Home 20th July ♥

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 20th July is ♥ ♥

1. Finish the buttons on the dresses for Confirmation/FHC. Start and finish the hand embroidery and make coronets ( I am doing a tutorial on these as well) all by Friday (I hope)

2. Help the children with the last memorisation and reading/chatting in preparation for Saturday evening.

3. Be a happy and cheery hostess for our awaited guests who will be visiting starting tomorrow.
we have been looking forward to this for some time now.

4. Take Rogan and Moran for their First Reconciliation on Thursday. Prayers would be appreciated for them both but especially Moran.

5. Make the Confirmation cakes (these are fruit cakes with Royal Icing on them decorated with ribbon etc) and make First Holy Communion (Dove shapes) Cakes on Saturday

6. Plan a rest after Sunday as we come to the end of a very busy, busy time.
Then get back into a routine for the lessons and everyday life. I can't wait.

♥ Please could I ask for special prayers to accomplish all we need to for this special day on Saturday and for the Confirmation and First Holy Communion itself at 6pm. The children have been most diligent in their preparation and are very excited but want to finish all their own preparations too.
Please pray for peace in our home during this time ♥

Blessings,
