Grace at Home No. 374

Hello, friends. Blessings to you this Holy Week.

Easter Sunday will mark one month since we've been on lockdown here. Some of you have been confined to your homes even longer than that. We're living in scary times, aren't we?

And yet there are still signs of hope all around--in the faces of the courageous first responders and health professionals working extra-hard, in the beautiful spring weather, and in the ways you're making your homes places of grace even while you're stuck in them.

Here are some of my favorites from last week's Grace at Home party.

Want to use this time at home creatively? Julie from My Wee Abode showcases lots of wreaths you can make for yourself!

Need to create some Easter treats but can't get out to buy anything? Linda from It All Started with Paint shows us how to create cute Easter bunnies from paper bags!

Looking for ways to decorate for Easter this year? Check out how Shelley from Calypso in the Country re-purposed her Easter decor from last year!

Have you been planning a baby or wedding shower that you cannot host during lockdown? Jennifer from Satsuma Designs shows you how to host a virtual shower!

Need some new ideas of things to do with kids during this ongoing lockdown? Kimberly from LouLou Girls to the rescue with 52 fun ideas!

Struggling with anxiety in these uncertain times? Then you'll appreciate Donna Reidland from Soul Survival's words about anxiety and the size of our God.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's link-up!

Now for today's party! Here at the Grace at Home party, 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, and during these days of social distancing, it can really make someone's day!
