"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 reflect on the life of The Cure of Ars and particularly this beautiful quote of his in regard to my own motherhood: "I owe a debt to my mother, virtues go easily from mothers into the hearts of their children, who willingly do what they see being done."
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 work at being consistant in the important things that matter.
