Today and Everyday, let the tender moments of our Lord’s own family touch our hearts and change our lives.
God, bless our family. Make it like the family of your son.
May our moments of sorrow give way to seasons of joy.
May the memory of harsh words fade, before the warmth of a loving touch.
May there never be pain that a kind embrace cannot lesson.
May the tears of sorrow always be replaced by the music of laughter.
May resentment be banished from our home and forgiveness reign in our hearts today and everyday.
Let the living thing, that is stronger that the love that binds our family together, be your love, Oh God, which makes
all creation one.
Let it be God, until that day when your gentle guidance brings each of us to our eternal home and in your loving arms.
This is a colorful, crisp time of year. Our kids are back in school and order is coming back to our households.
It is a perfect time to clean out the summer clutter and create a renewed home life.
Let’s open closets and restore order in our daily lives.
This time of year is also a perfect time to renew our commitment to motherhood.
Let’s be honest and review our own scorecard. Are we doing the best job we can considering our lifestyle? Do we often make time for our kids? Do we find time to connect and enjoy each other’s company? Are we making mealtime an important time to connect with our children each day? Do we have the ground rules understood in your family life? Are our children learning to reach out into the community? Do we have technology curfews? Are our kids living a healthy life?
These questions are important to review this school year. There is always room for improvement and growth. We set the stage for our family life.Day in and day out, we want to pace our lives in harmony. Decide what is most important to make your family life whole. Set a pattern around your choices and reach high for a stabile, loving home life.
Your kids will benefit from your well thought out decisions.
