Grace at Home No. 418


Friends, what a joy it is to welcome you to this little corner of the internet.

I am writing this during Holy Week. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling nearly overwhelmed with emotion. The heaviness of Maundy Thursday, the darkness of Good Friday, the bleakness of Holy Saturday threaten to swamp me. 

In order to be awakened and astounded rather than engulfed and crushed by my emotions, I find myself consulting some old friends: the hymns of the church. I've put together a little booklet of some of these, and I'm delighted to be able to give it to you. 



And now I'm so pleased to welcome you to this week's Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some highlights from last week's party.

Looking for some inspiration for freshening up your home for spring? Check out these home tours!

Niky from The House on Silverado shows us her lovely home all decked out for springtime.


Paula from Sweet Pea is a master at mixing new items, treasured antiques, and DIY projects.


Pam from Everyday Living shares the lovely Easter decorations in her Sunshine Cottage.


But if checking out all this lovely decor tempts you to comparison, check out this post from Julie at My Wee Abode.


And if you need even more help with comparison, I've got you covered. Comparison was the huge struggle of my life, and my journey away from it was arduous. I share what I learned in my book, Mythical Me: Finding Freedom from Constant Comparison. You can click here to read the first chapter for free. 

Looking for a small project to help you brighten things up this spring? Check out these cute fabric-covered pots created by Carol from Blue Sky at Home.

Need a quick treat or dessert for Easter? Kelly from 3 Boys and a Dog shares the recipe for this yummy-looking "puppy chow"!

If you're in need of some soul nourishment today, I highly recommend this post from Amy at Wasteland to Graceland.


Thank you to everyone who linked up!

Now for today's party.  Here at the Grace at Home party, you can link up any post you've written that demonstrates how you're filling your own home with truth, goodness, and beauty. 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! 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  6. What a gift that you are pointing readers to renew their acquaintance with hymns. I have been reading through a hymnal this year and journaling my impressions. It's been a nourishing practice.

  8. I love the subject of comparison, it took me years to STOP. Comparison is the thief of joy, and we all need more joy. Thank you for the varied offerings to ponder and explore. Have a great week ahead.

  14. Richella, I agree with you completely about Holy Week. It's hard to believe that this is the second Holy Week that we have not gathered as a church community to reflect on the enormity of this holy time. We watched Maundy Thursday service online again. Thank goodness, our church is opening for Easter services outside on Sunday. To the church universal, let's us all rejoice in the sacrifice of our risen Lord. Blessings on you and your family.

  15. Such a beautiful reminder of this week, Richella! It's definitely been different than what I expected but I'm thankful for the opportunity to commemorate and celebrate in ways we were not able to last year. I love all the features you chose this week and I hope your Easter season is a blessed one. Hugs, CoCo

  16. I returned to the hymns myself last week. Our church sings mainly contemporary Christian songs, but last week I sat down at the piano and pulled out my dad's old hymnal and played whatever page it opened up to at home alone. It was healing.

  20. Spell to stop brokeup or divorce and bring your lover back even if your situation seems hopeless" I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster dr unity. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..
