Hearts for Home

I'm joining Gae again, for her great weekly meme Hearts for Home.
I've been out of routine with this wonderful little reminder that dear Gae provides us with so faithfully!
So hopefully I will be back on track with it from now on :-)
I have a real need this week to:
1. cull more things around the house and open up some space.
2. start preparing the spare rooms for my family who are coming to stay
3. get to bed at a decent time ie. before 10pm
4. watch my food intake and not indulge so much in heavy wintery dishes
5. pray, pray and pray some more!
6. read my Bible consistently and 'religiously' at the set times I need to have in place to bring balance into my days.
Gae suggests we look at 4-6 very do-able things every week that enhances the peace, organisation and care of our homes and families.

Cultivating Our Hearts For Home ♥


  1. Excitement that you are working towards a goal dear friend. May this week be truly blessed!


  2. Enjoy your family visit!
    I love the simplicity and harmony of your list!

  3. Dear Trish,
    I too feel the need to cull things in our home. One area is the clotehs that no longer fit me after a few years. I wll be looking at re-using some of the dresses into skirts for summer especially.
    Some of the toys for the children need to be put away for a time to allow more imaginative play with out too much distratction.
    I too have been trying to get to be earlier, but I ma not sure it helps my rising time, lol.
    Thanks for joining in again and I hope your routine starts to improve for you
    God Bless
