Grace at Home No. 401

Hello friends! Here we are at the end of October—can you believe it? For so long this year seemed that it would never end, and now it's nearly Halloween!

Not only is it nearly Halloween, it's nearly Election Day. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I got to vote early. I don't think I've ever been so ready for campaign season to be over; how about you? 

I am 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 highlights from last week's party.

Are you looking forward to Thanksgiving? Ours will be different this year, because no one will be traveling to be with us. So I was glad to see this Thanksgiving tablescape from Lori at Dining Delight. Lori lives in Canada, where they've already celebrated Thanksgiving, and she has inspired me to make our table beautiful for the four of us who will be together!

Also looking ahead to Thanksgiving, I just loved this craft from Carol at Blue Sky at Home. She used wood blocks and stencils to make her own cube puzzle. Wouldn't this make a fun coffee table decoration? 

Our Halloween will be very low-key--we don't usually get many trick-or-treaters, and I'm thinking we might not have any this year. But just for fun, I was glad to get this recipe for baked pumpkin donut holes from Kimberly at LouLou Girls. Wouldn't they make a good Halloween treat?

If you want to go full-on old fashioned, you might enjoy this recipe for toffee from Jen at Cincy Shopper. It sure looks like it would be worth the effort!

On a very practical note, I was so glad to see this tutorial for padded headphone covers from Condo Blues. I spend a lot of time on Zoom calls these days, and the pads on my headphones are growing thin. What a good idea to sew new padded covers for the ear pieces instead of purchasing new headphones!

So many of us are going through really difficult times right now. Dr. Michelle Bengtson helps us reframe our thoughts and offers hope. 

If you'd like some help in talking with God during these turbulent days, I'm so glad to offer you a free resource. It's called Daily Prayers for Uncertain Times, and you can download it here.  

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

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!

  1. Richella, I have to agree with you about the election. I will be glad to put it behind us. No matter how it turns out, we need to pray for our nation. We desperately need to turn back to God as a whole. I love your features this week and have already checked out a couple of the linked posts. Fall blessings to you and yours!

    1. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

  10. This juicer is small and very quick and easy to take apart to clean, it’s quiet and the juice is much better quality and flavor vs using a spinning kind of Best Black Friday Deals for Juicers. Worth every penny!
