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 30th November is ♥ ♥
I was very pleased with my results from last week. I think I actually achieved everything except outside activities for Arwen, my number 6.
This week I will attempt the following~
1. To be diligent in our St Andrew Novena. This is a commitment for a long period of time and sometimes the daily commitment can seem intense.
2. Be consistent in our working through the plans the children made for Advent. We still haven't made daily lists but have a general idea of what we are doing.
3. Finish making our pudding we still haven't finished from Stir up Sunday
4. Help the children with their Christmas making projects.
5. Look at ordering any presents I can online to save 'outside the home' shopping and research any other presents to achieve value for money for the gifts we buy.
6. Our little Arwen is such an outside girl, always pulling me out side for walks and flower picking. I would like to organise it so we do more things outside for her to do, but also for us to adjust some of our more 'moveable' activities to be done outside.
