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.
May 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.☺ ♥ ♥
My list for 17th of May is ♥ ♥
As with last week I am focusing my heart and soul upon our family circle.
We have had a few people 'keyed' up in preparation for the arrival of our blessing and this can put them on edge.....a little like waiting at birthday's or Christmas but at a 'higher key level.'
So based on this I am especially trying to make more time for the children.......just being with them and enjoying the time spent with each one of them.
We actually have Stephen traveling interstate for Wednesday and Thursday this week, Wednesday being my actual due date, so my own anxiety level about Stephen being away and the baby coming is ~well just a little high. So I would appreciate any prayers for this and the arrival of our baby prior to or after he returns home...please!
Having said this I have our last Dr appointment on Thursday and if our little dumpling hasn't arrived by then I believe we will be induced on the Friday.
Seriously, I am finding it difficult to focus on anything that isn't baby related and focus on other priorities and am just enjoying these last days with life as it is now.
To this end our lives are revolving around reading, playing and I along with the children are crafting as well. Some of our little ones are learning new hand craft skills and making presents for the baby, all of which is very exciting.
Praying you all find peace and joy in your own homes this week,
