It’s Monday and another amazing week is in front of us full of opportunities to promote harmony in our home. Our homes might be starting to feel more like hubs as rooms are more multi purposed than before. How are you managing all the changes in your home? Are tensions running high as everyone adjusts to our new and ever changing circumstances?
The “Three H’s of Harmony” are hope, help, and humor.
We can experience and promote harmony if we remember and keep in our sight where our hope comes from and what our hope is in. I shared in Fridays “Fearless Friday” video that in the middle of the Covid-19 toilet paper crisis I had to step back and remember that my hope is in Christ and His promise is to provide my every need; not want. So I choose to trust Him to provide the little things because He has secured the big things like my eternal life with Him in heaven. I also have great hope that our nation will prevail through this current Covid-19 crisis as it has so many other crisis before. (If you are struggling with hope in our future tune into John C Maxwell: Leading Through Crisis, on Facebook, a message from my mentor and friend that is sure to stir hope)
What is your hope in today? How are you sharing it with your family?
Why help? Basically, we are stronger together. We can all provide a little help in our home, in our community, and through our social media connections. I love all the different ways we see people being creative and offering help to one another. Currently, my mother is in Hospice care at home, states away from me, down in Florida. It has given me the blessing of seen helping hands constantly at work in so many ways in their community and through my friends in the area. I started to think about what I could do to help and then I saw a posting from a Military Spouse friend about the challenges she was facing as she worked from home and now was surrounded by her children who now needed to be taught their school lessons. It didn’t take long for me to connect that I had an opportunity to help her and others that were facing similar challenges. I could share an amazing communication tool to help ease the tension and take some of the guess work out of how to improve communication within families and classrooms. So I’m offering a workshop on Thursday, check out the events.
How are you helping in your home, community, and social media connections?
No surprise, right? Humor helps us keep things lite and in perspective. I tend to be a little serious so humor doesn’t come easy to me. Don’t get me wrong I love to laugh and have a good time. I’m just not naturally witty. So I jumped on the idea I saw on Instagram by Fort Bragg PWOC to start creating fun chalk messages in our driveways or sidewalks to cheer those who pass by. You may have seen some of my posts of my sidewalk messages to brighten the day of all the dog walkers and random street traffic. It is the little things. Our family has also limited the news watching and started watching funny movies instead.
How are you bringing humor to your home?
I hope this little discovery of the “Three H’s of Harmony” has been up lifting. I would love to hear your ideas. Please share how you are implementing the “Three H’s of Harmony” in your home and community. I’m sure it will be an encouragement to the others reading. We are stronger together.
I hope you will make plans to join me for the workshop Thursday to learn a new way to connect and communicate with our families that offers the potential to not just build harmony in the home but also increase each student’s success in the classroom. I know I wish I had this tool when I was homeschooling and my children were still in school.
Check out the event for more details and get registered since there is limited space.
May you experience the peace of God as you anchor your hope in Him today and always. Stay strong in the Lord!
