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 pray intentionally for the things in my household and home that I want to improve on, reminding myself our best and lasting changes have always come with fervent, consistant prayers for it.

2. To re-focus on the beauty of a well ordered household.

3. To keep working at thinking before speaking, to break the habit of responding to quickly, to carelessly. "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment." Matthew 12:36

4. To develop and work upon balance in all things.

Thank you again Anne.
I wish I could have more faith at the moment about fervent and constant prayer. Struggling with some issues here.
many blessings
