Hearts for Home - 16th August

 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.☺ ♥ ♥

Enjoying our lives on the 16th August by doing ♥ ♥

Hello Dear Friends,

1.  I am looking at styles of Deb dresses for our darling Autumn, as she will be making her Debutante in October. We will  probably be  making her dress as buying a ready made one seems almost impossible. So lots of preparations for this over the next few weeks, to avoid stress for Mummy and family.

2. We seem to have a household of sickies still. I am convinced we have two different strains of sickness. A hacking cough/cold and some other vomiting and aching body that has debilitated my squad of workers. So we are on maintenance mode, just trying to keep food and washing under control while looking after our bed bound children.

3. I have started a sweet little knitted gnome which I will be sharing on Yarn Along tomorrow. I am really enjoying this quick knit ( my other projects are on the back burner so I can simply enjoy this)

4. I have a request for lots of hugs for the sick ones so will try to do this along with snuggles and reading for those who need it.

5. I also have come to the conclusion that Trahaearn has a reaction  to dairy when I eat it. BOO HOO for me. So I have experimented and he is fine if I have milk in my coffee and cereal but anything more than this including my favourite, custard and butter on homemade bread are out. The medication helps him but it is obvious that the dairy makes it worse even so. So adjusting my eating habits this week for my little dumpling.

6. Try  to continue to rely on God through out all my day, keeping my heart open to His leading and my heart soft to all circumstances that come my way this week

Praying you all find peace and joy in your own homes this week,

Oh Gae, you have an awful lot on your plate right now!
I hope your family gets over all that sickness soon!
It must feel good to discover what Trahaearn's trouble is, but I understand how much you'll miss your dairy things.
I'm sure the Lord will help you through all the adjustments you'll need to make while feeding your dumpling.
You are a wonderful mum - some would be tempted to put him on a bottle rather than go without themselves.
I know your mother's heart is to do the very best for your little one - God bless you for the little sacrifices you are making!
Getting a dress ready for Autumn's big day sounds very exciting!
What a lovely thing for you two to enjoy together :-)
I will be keeping you and yours in prayer my dear friend!
love in Jesus..Trish

Oh my, oh my! I am so sorry that your family is ill! Wish I could pop over (or, pop "under", I suppose, ha ha) and help you tend to your little ones and the household chores:)
Prayers for their swift recovery.
I am sure that the dress you make will be lovely!
And "yay" for at least being able to identify your sweet baby's struggles with reflux...sorry that means a further sacrifice from Mummy:( You'll get your custard back one day before you know it:)
Thank you for helping us all become better homemakers.

Sweet Gae,

I pray that your family will begin to heal quickly. Getting to know what it wrong is really the only way to truly become healthy. You are paying attention to your body and hence, your beautiful baby boy is also letting you know what hurts his tummy :)

Praying that everyone begins to feel healthy soon. And that mommie is not overdoing it :)

Be blessed dear friend,

Maria

Oh my goodness I do hope that every one is feeling better very soon. It's not much fun to have a house full of sickies. I will include you all in my prayers.
