Hearts for Home - June 15

I've decided to join in with Gae and others in the endeavor to commit to fostering our Hearts for Home. Here is what it's all about:

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.

For this week, I will endeavor to:

1. Tend to my garden so that I can bring a little loveliness to the yard and inside the home.

2. Keep the dining room table clear of clutter.

3. Devote more prayer time in meditation of the Sacred Heart.

4. Listen to uplifting music that nourishes the soul and brings serenity.

Dear Lisa,
How lovely. What type of music do you plan on listening to? I adore music.
God Bless

Hi Gae - I plan on listening to more contemporary Christian music or even some classical music while I'm doing my chores around the house. In my car, I've been listening to a chant CD - very nice. It sure stirs my soul! Thanks for stopping by!

Music really does much to set the mood while doing chores or just hanging around the house. I love your new initiatives.

This looks wonderful! I like your ideas very much. I am planning on getting the garden weeded this week too actually. It's an ongoing work in progress that project for me ;)
I will try to keep up with this when I can though. Very motivating!

Good luck with the keeping the clutter off the dining room table. Summer vacation just started and already mine is covered with kids' stuff and laundry! I do have a vase of flowers in the middle of all that stuff though. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!
