Hearts For Home - 20th December

 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  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 20th December by doing ♥ ♥

I am trying to be thankful for all the blessings that I have each day as well as to look for them in more difficult circumstances, as I seem to be affected more than usual by the tensions  and stress of others. I am contemplating the use of a Blessings book, but am worried I will not use it daily as I want and then feel pressured by not doing this.

Finish our Christmas shopping for gifts. I am so behind and have only started yesterday.

Bake our Christmas cookies together and to let the little children enjoy them by not trying to do too much at a time.

Prepare my heart this week for the joyous occasion of the birth of  Our Saviour on Christmas. Focus my thoughts on those I love and be willing to put myself out to  serve them in this special time.

I am reading  Lessons at Blackberry Inn: Adventures with the Gentle Art of Learning (again) and find myself refreshed and encouraged by the thoughts contained within. There is nothing like a good 'mother culture story' to help me strive to be all I would like to be in my vocation.

May I also say that I wish you and your families  a most blessed and joy filled Christmas this week, may you find the love of Christ to be overflowing in your celebrations and in your time together.

May you all have a blessed week and thank you for being a part of Hearts for Home,

Oh Gae, this season is always so hectic, but your words are very calm my friend, as I read them :)

May your Christmas be joyful and filled memories as you enjoy all of your children.

Be blessed my friend,

The images in your "header" are simply LOVELY! So peaceful and exquisite!

I am SO excited that you are reading one of the books I've been longing to read! "Pocket Full of Pine Cones" is one of my favorites...and I have always wanted to read its sequel.

I hope you will post a little about the book and the insights and ideas you glean while reading it:)

Enjoy your wonderful home and family in this final week of Advent! How terrific that your little guy is healthy and strong for the Christmas season!
