Hearts for Home

My fellow Aussie mum, Gae, from Cherished Hearts at Home has started this beautiful initiative for centering our motherly hearts for home, this is what Gae has to say:

"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."
My List for this week is:

1. To think before I speak...just think and make good choices from that.

2. To continue working on the home in creating the haven I love when I resume schooling next week.

3. To ponder the meaning of hospitality, thinking about my strengths and weaknesses and to dwell on the examples of wonderful hospitality I have met in my life.

4. To focus on each child this week with greater care, spending the right amount of time with each child when they need correction, when they need praise.

Dear Anne,
I am always looking for ways to increase my hospitality. I have always been influenced by Emilie Barnes in this area. I also think that the Hearts for Home is my way of extending hospitality into our homes and daily life with those who are most important to us.
