Preparing Our Heart and Home for the Holidays – Music Time
Thank you for joining this months series, “Preparing Our Heart and Home for the Holidays.” To prepare in advance for the an enjoyable holiday, join me each morning (Monday-Friday) as we cover at least one task that we want to accomplish. Start any time and share your journey in the comments!
Last weeks challenge from Women Living Well was to light a candle each day and pray for peace in your home. I absolutely loved this challenge! It helped me get in a better routine for praying for my family and my home more often. The candles scent also filled the house with such a beautiful fragrance that even my husband enjoyed it! I even caught him lighting the candle himself a couple times. So I know he enjoys the scent that fills the house too.
Today’s challenge is just as fun. It’s time to turn on your favorite music and play it throughout your day. I plan on playing music first thing in the morning until we go to bed each night. I hope my family loves it too!
I was amazed at how nice it was to have soft music playing to wake us all up! As soon as 7 am rolled around this morning, we were in the kitchen listening to Christmas music and making pumpkin pancakes.We have our friends staying with us, so it was a treat to make them breakfast and listen to music together! There is just something about candles and music made our morning so nice! Oh and I can’t forget the yummy pumpkin pancakes that filled our bellies! They were scrumptious!
I hope you all have a fantastic day today! Here is today’s verse and task.
Today’s Bible verse:
The Lord appeared to him from far away. “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” Jeremiah 31:3
- Each day this week, continue lighting a candle and pray for family and home.
- This morning or as soon as you read this post, turn on your favorite music. (Pandora is a great option if you have a smart phone.) Each day, for the next week play your music daily or all day in your home. Ask your family what music, they would like to hear in the house when they come home from work or school.
- Review your personal goal list for the item you need to accomplish today to prepare you for the holidays. At your most convenient time today, set the timer and do that task.
