I am participating in "Making Your Home a Haven Fall 2010" hosted by Courtney at "Women Living Well".
The challenge for Week 1 is:
Go buy an extra large candle and light a candle everyday in your home. Each time the candle catches your eye, say a prayer for peace in your home.This is an easy one for me. I already do this every day. Candles are a regular on my grocery list.
I have one in the kitchen:
and one in the family room on top the entertainment center:
Right now they are the same scent: "Cinnamon Bun".
Courtney also asks "What makes a home a haven?" The answer is, we do. She goes on to describe two different types of women who have 2 very different types of homes. Click here to see more about these two homes.
I want to live in Home #2 where the woman of the home is:
1. Engaged in her family.
2. Wise with time management.
3. Has a pleasant demeanor.
4. Is content.
Maybe someday I'll get there. With God's help!
Praying for our families is key. As part of the candle challenge, I am going to pray for my family everytime I see the flickering of the candle flame.
Why don't you come join in as well? Who wouldn't want to make her home a haven?
