Hearts for Home

"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. "

Last week went well, the only commitment that I didn't follow through the way I wanted to was spending time with the children in the garden. The first and main commitment of gentle tone, less frustration is a work in action, I have improved, I have a way to go, I will continue to work on it and take it to prayer for the grace I need.

1. To be patient in all things, talk with a gentle tone.

2. Pray for this grace daily and consistantly.

3. We are travelling all this week. I want to work on making the trip an enjoyable one for dh and the children. I want to stimulate the children's sense of wonder while seeing new scenes and places.

4. Be efficient with travelling, neat and tidy in the car and where we stay, make the effort to keep that order that makes everyone feel happy and contented.
