An acronym for HOME - no laundry allowed!


I look around the floor and see the laundry strewn about.  I am wondering what other homes look like on a Friday morning?    I cannot possibly talk about laundry again.  I just cannot.  It is beginning to define my home.  It is beginning to define me.


H - Honor - I want my kids to honor one another.  Putting other's needs before their own. To look out for them, be loyal, let each other win while playing Big Deal.

O - Obey  - I desire my children to obey God's word as Truth, not becasue of fear of punishment. but out of a love for their Lord and the wanting to please Him. Oh, and ahem, I need to do that too.

M - Me - I am such a crucial part on making this house into a home and so often, I forget that.  God has chosen me to be passionate about these four kids, to be head over heels for my husband, and to bring glory to Him in all I do.

E - Excitement - I want my children to be as excited about spending time at home as going out.  I need to be intentional about ways to foster that excitement and love of home.  If it is a place filled with love, they will love being here. 

Dear God, you are the ultimate parent.  Please help me to make them feel your love today.

Enjoy your MOMents!

Home is a Haven. Thanks for the reminder! And I even thank God for the laundry...because that means there are little people getting them dirty. Still, what a never ending chore, right?! :) Good post.
