Grace at Home No. 44--Welcome!

Welcome to today's Grace at Home party!  We are all the blessed recipients of God's grace--"in Him we live and move and have our being" (Acts 17:28).  This party is a place to celebrate all the ways we reflect the grace given to us by making our homes places of grace--for our families, for our friends and neighbors, and for ourselves!  

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

Can you believe that January is over?!  Time is flying!  To help you prepare for the first big February occasion, check out this post by Barb at Second Chance to Dream.  She rounded up lots of great Super Bowl party ideas.  Love this!

Hard on the heels of the Super Bowl we have Valentine's Day, of course, a lovely bright spot in the wintry February landscape.  There were some lovely Valentine's Day decorations linked up last week, including this I Corinthians 13 canvas from Doreen at Hymns and Verses.  She includes printables and instructions to make your own.

Another of my favorites is this "Bee Mine" banner from Geneva at My Heart's Song.  Lovely!

For a yummy Valentine treat, check out these cute marshmallow pops from Marty at Marty's Musings.  Aren't they adorable?

One way we make our homes places of grace is by creating special spaces for our children.  Last week's party included two wonderful rooms for daughters.  Check these out!

Girls' Attic Bedroom from Lisa at The Pennington Point: lovely, functional, and cool.

And a beautiful room for Eva from Laura at Our Prairie Home.  So lovely!

If you're in need of a bit of personal encouragement, check out this post from Alana at Domestic Bliss Diaries.  It'll help you combat style indecision--but it'll also help you grow in knowledge of the love of God!
