Grace at Home No. 34--Welcome!

Welcome to this week's Grace at Home party!

Recently I've had a several people ask me what I mean by "grace at home."  The answer is simple, really.  We're all recipients of God's grace.  His grace is the source of all that's good and beautiful in our lives.  And now we have the privilege of extending grace to everyone around us.  This party is a celebration of the all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Don't misunderstand me--you don't have to write a post specifically about grace to join this party.  My purpose here is to remind us all that, in truth, every good thing IS about grace--God's good gifts to us and our reflections of His grace.

Inspired by her mom's example, Cyndi from Walking in Grace and Beauty wrote a post called "Finishing Is More Important than Starting."  This will bless your heart and spirit.

Geneva at My Heart's Song created a wonderful Thanksgiving banner.  It's not too late to add something like this to your decor.

Jenn from One Thrifty Chick wrote a tutorial for a great gift idea: simmering spice packets.  She gave these to teachers for a Halloween gift, but they'd also make great little Thanksgiving or Christmas presents.

If you'll be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, you might need a lovely centerpiece for your table.  Check out Leslie's tutorial for this gorgeous pumpkin centerpiece!
