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. 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 your 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.God Bless you this week.
So, here are mine for this week...
1. I commit to turning off the t.v. in order to interact with my children more.
2. I commit to making a genuine effort to get up earlier so that I can spend that time in personal prayer.
3. I commit to some kind of exercise everyday so as to treat the "temple" that my soul lives in just a little bit healthier..
4. I commit to reading my Magnificat every day.
5. I commit to examining my conscience and going to confession this week.

2, 3, and 4 are my ones as well (on top of all the other things I want to do) I must remember not to overload myself.
God Bless
