Welcome, friends! I'm so glad you're here for this week's Grace at Home party. Every Thursday, week after week, I host this little party to celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace.
At this point I usually feature some of my favorite posts from last week's party. But last Thursday, none of us had any idea how tragedy would pierce our hearts the very next day. Last Friday's shootings in Newtown, Connecticut cut us to the very quick. Our hearts are broken at the deaths of the precious children and school staff members.
As I reflected on the horrors of last Friday's events, I realized afresh how much we need God's grace, and what a privilege it is to try to make our homes a reflection of that grace. My prayer is that this little party can encourage us to persevere in that effort.
Now more than ever, we thank God for his grace.
What are you doing to make your home a place of grace? Share it with us!
