Grace at Home No. 287

Hello, friends, and welcome to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace.

I don't know about you, but I've experienced all kinds of mixed emotions over the past 24 hours. Yesterday morning Billy Graham died. I am so sad that such a faithful man is no longer living on this earth, but I am also so happy that Dr. Graham is now face-to-face with Jesus. Just imagine how many people are welcoming him, people who came to faith in Christ because of his preaching!

We can't all be famous evangelists, but we can live our lives in faith. We can impart grace to one another. We can all be lights. Know what I mean?

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

Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea created this wonderful kitchen art from her family's old hand-written recipe cards. What a wonderful way to preserve a special memory!

Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine re-did a powder room to be oh-so-glamorous! Check it out for lots of fun inspiration.

Many Christians observe the season of Lent, and some abstain from eating meat on Fridays. Marilyn from Marilyn's Treats has done us the service of publishing 10 ideas for meatless meals.

Pam and Butch from Everyday Living shared some wonderful thoughts about loving and being loved; you'll be so glad you read this!

As for me, I shared a much-needed organization project in my home. Here's what the cupboard under my bathroom sink looked like:

Can you believe that? I'd love for you to see how it looks now: click here to see my DIY bathroom organization!

  1. I too was saddened by Billy Graham’s passing but rejoicing because he is not “home!” Thank you for including my glam bath, it is actually one of the bathrooms in our new home we built and moved into 2 months ago. I love that My Mr. let me have a girly bath in the house, lol. Have a wonderful day!
