Grace at Home No. 255

Today is June 22, and I'm so glad to welcome you to this week's Grace at Home party.

I don't know what's going on in your life today, but June 22 is a special day for me. Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary!

Obviously, we were only 12 years old when we got married {wink}.

As you can imagine, I'll be spending some time today reflecting on the way God has blessed us over the years. So I'm glad that today is the day for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace.

Here are some links from last week's party I thought you might enjoy.

If you're looking for garden inspiration, you should visit with Rita from Panoply! She shares photos of her spring/early summer garden that will have you wanting to create your own beautiful outdoor spaces.

Alicia from A Brighter Destiny recommends books for read-aloud time around the campfire. There are some great recommendations here.

Pattie from Olla-Podrida shared a recipe for Caramel Pound Cake with Salted Toffee Glaze. Doesn't this photo make your mouth water?

Sheila Qualls learned an important lesson about overcoming shame when she received a letter from a concerned friend advising her to lose weight. 

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!
