Hearts for Home

Today I am joining in with Gae from Cherished Hearts at Home . She has a weekly post called Hearts for Home which is open for others to link up with and share some thoughts on home-centred ways. She encourages us to think of 4-6 things to commit to each week to make homelife special and to bless us as keepers at home.

Well, I did get a lot done in the garden this week although it is not yet completely finished.  Everything else I did accomplish except the apple juice.  Unfortunately, due to the time spent getting ready for Thanksgiving/Birthday celebrations I just didn't have time to get it done.
This week I commit to:-

1. Well, after sitting down with my schedule for the week I realized it is actually a very busy week for me so my one goal is to just keep up with the basics.

2. Despite the busyness of the week to keep my focus and heart on the home.

3. Staying focused on the school work that needs to be done.
4. Spend some time with hubby.
5. Our schedule needs some tweeks so I want to get that worked out this week.

  1. Alana,

    It is good to keep your focus close to home. Tweaking your schedule is a good way to stay in touch with what is truly happening in your home.

    Blessings to you and your sweet family,


  2. Alana- If I may be so bold, bump hubby time up on that list of priorities. I learned first hand how important that is, not just for hubby, but for me as well.

    Have a wonderful week.


  3. Dear Alana,
    I pray you are able to keep the focus on home. I found last week with all the business I was easily distracted.
    Praying you are able to tweek the schedule. I find this is a constant task for me to juggle the new and varied committments.
    Enjoy the gardens too, they bring peace to me to be in them
    Many blessing and prayers this week

  4. Hi Alana, caring for your housekeeping, homeschooling and hubby certainly will keep you busy! Bravo for getting all done bar the juicing.Have a blessed and wonderful week :-)

  5. Hi Alana,
    I enjoyed reading your list. I like to read posts that focus on the home...that is so important, and encouraging. I hope you are having a lovely week.

  6. Thank you everyone for the comments, suggestions and encouragement. ~Alana~
