Caring for Myself Body and Soul 21:
Grace at Home Party


Welcome to the Grace at Home party!

This month I'm writing about taking care of myself body and soul.  Today I'm caring for myself by opening my blog to you so that I can see the ways you make your homes places of grace.  I don't feel that I've accomplished much over the last few days, but I can celebrate your accomplishments!  I can relish the fact that there are people all over the globe who are working hard to make beautiful, gracious homes for themselves and their loved ones.  That inspires me!

Here are a few of my favorites from last week's party:

Shenita from Embellishments by SLR turned her dining room into a beautiful, inviting space for Fall:


Marty at A Stroll Thru Life worked the same kind of Autumn magic in her breakfast room:



These Fall dining spaces are so inspiring to me!  And just look the cozy and warm homespun table setting created by from An Extraordinary Day:

Dollar Store Table Setting :: Day 10 of #31Days :: Homespun Table Setting :: AnExtraordinaryDay.net
Last week's party included some good food for the soul, too.  I was particularly challenged this post from Let Why Lead called "Surprise! I Was a Lousy Wife!"

The Marriage Diaries at letwhylead.com
And in this season when we're all so busy,  I was really glad to read "10 Practical Ways to Show Love to a Perfect Stranger" by Abby at Chapter 37.

Those are just a few of my favorites.  Thank you to everyone who joined the party!  I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured this week (or in a previous week), feel free to grab the "I was featured" button (the code is right over in my sidebar).  I'd be so proud if you displayed it!

 

Now for this week's party!  Grace at Home is a place for you to share anything related to making your home a place of grace. I invite you to link posts about
  • DIY projects
  • decorating
  • recipes
  • hospitality
  • homemaking tips
  • parenting
  • marriage
  • faith
  • self-care
  • soul care
Whatever you do to make your home a place of grace, I'd like to hear about it.  Here's what I ask of you.  Please include the permalink to your post, not your blog's home page.  Please let people know that you've linked up.  No more than three posts per person, please.  And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!
