Grace at Home No. 232

Happy new year, friends, and welcome to this year's first Grace at Home party! After a few weeks away from my computer, I'm so glad to welcome you here today!

As the name of my blog implies, my great passion is to impart grace to others. Although I'd always known this in theory, a few years ago I learned anew that the first place I am called to impart grace is right here in my home.

The Grace at Home party is a place for you to share the ways you make your home a place of grace and beauty. There are so many ways to do that, and I'm excited to see what you're up to. Nearly every week I choose a few features from the previous week's party so that even more people can benefit from that inspiration.

I've met so many of you directly through your involvement in this link party, and I'm so grateful to you for participating. Could I ask you a favor? If you know a blogger, could you invite them to participate in Grace at Home? I like the fact that this is a small party. I've been tickled over the years to see that some of y'all have met one another through this weekly gathering. But I'd love to have a few more grace-filled (or grace-hungry!) participants. Would you help me spread the word?

Now for this week's party!  As I said, 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!

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
