Hello, friends, and welcome to this week's edition of Grace at Home!
I'm sorry that I've been absent from my online home here this week. I hope you know you're always welcome here, but I've not been here the last few days to open the door.
If you will, I'd like to ask for your help. A very kind reader let me know that she's been experiencing an intrusive "pop-up" ad whenever she visits my blog. The ad covers the whole screen and looks something like this:
If you've experienced anything like that when visiting my blog, will you please leave a comment below to let me know? I have a couple of ads on my site, but there should never be anything that pops up and blocks the screen. I deeply apologize if that's happened to you. Please let me know if it has--I'm trying to get to the bottom of the problem so that I can fix it!
Now on to the business at hand--our weekly Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some posts from last week that caught my eye.
Jolena at While I Linger has been busy decorating her house for Autumn. I love what she's done in her kitchen and dining room--take a look!
Judy from JBigg's Little Pieces showed us the "spooky" Halloween decorating she's done for her grandsons. I like this--a little Halloween fun but nothing extreme.
Susan from The Sparrow's Home gave us great instructions for making freezer apple pie filling. I'd never thought of doing this, but what a great idea! Apples are delicious and inexpensive in the autumn, so I'm going to be doing this.
And Dr. Michelle Bengtson shared great insight on how to walk through the doorway to joy.
A big thank you to everyone who joined last week's party! I'm so grateful for each person who links up each week. If you've been featured, feel free to grab the "I was featured" button. I'd be so proud if you displayed it!
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. Note that if you link a post here, you are giving me permission to share your post, including a photo. And visit at least one of the other party participants--that's what really makes it a party!
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
