Grace at Home No. 384

Hello, friends! I hope all is well with you.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I've had a big week. My husband and I just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary!

35 years is a long time to be married, y'all. I must say I am deeply grateful that our marriage has weathered many ups and downs over the years, and I love my husband now more than ever.

I'm so glad you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some links from our last party I think you'll enjoy.

July 4 is fast approaching. As imperfect as this country is, and even though there are some real changes that need to be made in American society, I am still grateful to live in the U.S., and I am proud to display the flag. So I love this flag craft from Carol at Blue Sky at Home.

As the weeks of pandemic turn into months, you might need a little inspiration about keeping your home. If so, you'll appreciate this post from Melissa at A Virtuous Woman.

Working on your yard this year? You'll be glad to see these tips about growing beautiful hostas from Lois at Walking on Sunshine.

If your weather has been as hot as ours, you'll be glad to get a new crock pot recipe--who wants to stand at the stove or turn on the oven at this time of year? Carol at Comfort Spring shared her recipe for Lemon Garlic Chicken that sounds delicious.

Need a little encouragement from God's word? Check out Soul Survival from Donna Reidland. I loved her reminder that pride can lead us into dangerous waters.

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 difficult times, it can really make someone's day!
