Grace at Home No. 393

Hello friends! It's the end of August—can you believe it?

I think most of us are ready for 2020 to hurry up and be over—January and February seem so long ago, don't they? And yet when I think about the fact that Christmas is just four months away, I feel a little bit panicky. Do you know what I mean?

Anyway, I'm delighted to see that so many of you are doing wonderful things as you work to make your homes places of grace. Here are some highlights from last week's Grace at Home party.

Looking forward to decorating for Autumn but not quite ready to pull out all the Fall decor? Coco from The Crowned Goat gives you lots of ideas for easing into fall.

Struggling to stay organized now that school is back in session? Serena from Thrift Diving shows you how to make a huge white board--I can just imagine how useful this would be!

Wish you had a bag for carrying essentials when you're out and about (and one that you didn't have to set in a cart)? Helen from Hello Sewing provides a complete tutorial for making your own!

And in a separate post, she gives full instructions for making a carrying pouch for your face mask. Good idea, right?

If you're interested in reading book reviews, I heartily recommend Michele Morin's blog Living Our Days.  Recently she reviewed Soul Care in African American Practice, and her review is insightful and wise, sure to make you think.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party! 

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!

  3. I love decorating my home, or I'd say, moving things around. My dear God keeps me happy and sane in the middle of all that's happening in the world what with this COVID-19, that yes, thanks to our dear Lord Jesus Christ hubby dear and I came out of this horrible virus free from it and didn't suffer serious consequences.

  8. How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr  Aluya   can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr  Aluya Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at:  or whatsapp him on:  +2348110493039
