Welcome, friends! Hope 2019 is treating you well so far!
In January, almost everything I read encourages me toward an attitude of "out with the old, in with the new." Does anyone else feel that way?
Yet there are some "old" things I don't want to dispense with. One of those is hosting the Grace at Home party. It's definitely "old": I started the Grace at Home party way back in 2012.
In explaining the purpose of my blog back then, I wrote: "There's one thing that ties it all together for me: grace. That's the thing I prize most. My blog's purpose is to do what the title says--to impart grace. I want my home to be full of grace, too. I want it to be a place where my family, my friends, and my guests feel special and loved and welcome. I'm betting you feel the same way about your home."
So the aim of this party has always been to celebrate the ways we make our homes places of grace.
Now there are hundreds of link parties. Perhaps there's no longer any need for one that focuses on grace. But I still need the weekly time-out of thinking about this goal: I want my home to be a place of grace.
I hope you feel the same way! If you do, I invite you to join me here every Thursday to link posts about
