Grace at Home No. 217

Oh, boy! Today is my favorite turn-the-calendar-page day all year--it's September 1!

I'm so glad you're here to welcome September and to celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some posts from last week's Grace at Home party that caught my eye:

Roxanne from The Honeycomb Home took outdated nightstands and refurbished them into farmhouse beauties:

Pat from On Crooked Creektt created this lovely vignette for her entry hall and shared a step-by-step tutorial for how she did it.

I'm always looking for easy dinner recipes at this busy time of year. Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine shared this one for Apricot Chicken made with just four ingredients--I want to try this!

Alisa from Flourishing Today shared some inspiring and helpful insight into how to forgive when you can't forget.

As for me, I've been thinking a lot about how back-to-school time can be especially challenging for some of us, so I've written a special prayer for us. You can read it here.

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!

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.  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!
