Grace at Home No. 117

Welcome, friends!  I'm glad you're here for the weekly Grace at Home party.

God's grace is the stuff of life--not just for forgiveness, but for everything.  Every good thing is a gift from God's hand.  So each week we pause here to give thanks for all His gifts and to celebrate the ways we make our homes reflections of that grace.

Here are a few links that caught my eye last week.

LuAnn at Lovely Livings Blog made her front porch a gracious and welcoming place.  Don't you just want to sit a spell?

One of the most charming gallery walls I've seen was shared by Jenise at Do-It-Yourself Fun Ideas: all clocks and frames!
Amy at Home Remedies shared some wonderful ways to dress up faux flowers using dollar store finds.  Frugal and so pretty!

Heather at Encouraged at Home shared some hard-earned wisdom with us in her post about coping with a tough diagnosis.  So helpful!

Many of us are looking ahead to Autumn, and there were two recipes shared this week that I'm tucking away to make this Fall.

First, this Beef Ragu from Bernadette at Barefoot Hippie Girl:

And this yummy Apple-Pear Crisp from Theresa at Shoestring Elegance.  Amazingly, it's gluten-free!

Last, I shared the story of our pilgrimage to Normandy, and I'd love for you to see it.

These are just a few of my favorites.  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 (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!
