Motherhood and God: Planting the Seed of Faith, Breaking Ground, Cultivating, Gathering
Home is the first place we experience the love of God, the love of family and a place of rest and refuse.
Many of us wish to have our home and motherhood reflect the home we remember, or the one we are called to create.
For some moms home was not as nurturing a place and they wish to bring into being a home quite different than the one in which they were raised.
Some feel their childhood home was fine but still want to “improve” on the childhood experiences of home, and others wish to conceive a home that is both “holy” and “lived in”.
As moms we know that home is a paradox, it can/should/is the source of consistency but is always in a state of flux; and it’s that flux that makes it important to try and have a time for the sacred everyday.
And the sacred includes care for and nurturing ourselves: Body, Mind and Spirit.
Spiritual Direction can help you balance Body, (Are you taking care of yourself?), Mind, (Have you prayed about it?), Spirit, (Is it true to your calling?), together to help you achieve your calling from God as mom and woman.
Nurture Your Important Inner Life
Are you taking care of yourself?
|How does care of your body help you create a home that is a Sacred Space?aaaaaasssssssssssssssssssssssss
If we can not care for ourselves we find it harder to care for others, create an atmosphere that is fulfilling, and a life that is more in balance.
Scripture: 3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
Have you prayed about it?
|Prayer helps us discern what we are being called to do in any situation.aaaaana
Prayer helps us “keep our calm”
Scripture: Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Is it true to your calling?
|Bring both your body and mind into focus by Living Loveaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
You bring to the world a greater sense of connection and create a world where love rules over hate.
