Grace at Home No. 100! A celebration and a special giveaway


Welcome, welcome, welcome!!
Grace at Home

Today is special around these parts.  It's Thursday, so it's time for the weekly Grace at Home linky party, and that's pretty special on its own.  But today is the 100th Grace at Home linky party, and that's worth celebrating!

Grace at Home is a party for celebrating all the ways we make our homes places of grace.  We are all recipients of God's grace.  We are dependent upon Him for everything!  It's a privilege to honor God by making our homes reflections of that grace in big and small ways.

So today is a party for a party.  Along with our regular linky party, I want to celebrate with everyone who has ever participated in Grace at Home.  How shall I do that?  Well, how about a giveaway?  It seems to me it would be good to mark this this 100th party occasion with a $100 GIVEAWAY!


No sponsors, no gimmicks, just $100 cash to celebrate this 100th party.  I hope you'll join the celebration by entering the giveaway!  (If you're reading this post in an email, click over to my blog to enter.)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Next week I'll share some favorites from two weeks' worth of parties, but for now I just want to say a special thank you to everyone who has joined this party over the past couple of years!  I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week.  After all, it wouldn't be a party if no one participated! 

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!  And don't forget to enter the giveaway to win

Congratulations Richella!! Blog link ups are a lot of work. Thank you so much for always being the most gracious hostess. And, thank you for such a lovely and generous giveaway.

By the way, your kitchen makeover is coming along beautifully. I love the updated looks and the island is stunning in that gorgeous color (teal?).

Best wishes for a week filled with extraordinary God moments!

Erica Layne | Let Why Lead said...

Wow, I didn't notice a sponsor, so I'm guessing you are offering 100 of your own dollars - that is so sweet! Thanks for the chance to win! I need to say that I sincerely appreciate being a part of this linkup most weeks. It can be hard to find a place to share thoughtful content, and I love that your linkup encourages it and that your community is interested in it. You are the epitome of grace in my book!

Liberty said...

I have loved each and every one of your parties - even though I've not been able to participate recently.
Also - what I love about linkies is::
I love having everyone's ideas in one place to peruse/glean ideas from.

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

Wow has it really been 100 weeks? Good for you, I always enjoy coming by your parties!

Valerie said...

Congratulations, Richella! So good to be seeing you at the Renovare conference. One of the things I do to create home is to keep mine picked up and vacuumed so that it is always ready for anyone who drops by as well as for me when I come home from a full day. I like coming in to peace and order and I think it makes people who drop by feel less like they are intruding if they come into a house that is basically in order (vs. a wreck). At least, I feel that way in someone else's home when I come in unexpectedly and it doesn't look like I've caught them at an embarrassing moment.
