Grace at Home No. 484

Hello everyone! I am happy to be here today, sitting in my house with the power on—which was not the case over the weekend, thanks to Hurricane Ian. Although we lost power for three days, we didn't suffer any real damage, so we are thankful. And our hearts go out to all those who suffered dreadful losses. Were you affected by the storms?

Now it's my pleasure to welcome you to the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some features I think you'll enjoy.

Have you decorated your home for Autumn? Here's some inspiration for you!

Need to get your kitchen organized before the holidays (raising my hand!)? Tracy from Declutter in Minutes has some great tips for us.

Thank you to everyone who linked up! Now on to 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 space 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 or sphere of influence 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!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Oh wow! Three days is a long time to be without power. I’m thankful it’s back on now and you didn’t get any other damage. We didn't get anything from Ian at all.

    I really enjoyed Jan’s post about grumpiness.

  2. Richella, I am so glad your power was restored and I continue to pray for all that were impacted by Ian. Thanks so much for hosting and have a wonderful day!

  3. Richella, I'm so sorry you were without power for 3 days but rejoicing with you that you did not suffer any damage. We have friends in many of the affected areas and are praying for the long recovery.

  4. Glad to hear things are settling! We are in Central Florida, and got so lucky this time not to lose power or water. We lost some limbs from our trees, but thankful no damage. Around town, flooding was horrible, and while settling now, some are still suffering. A lot of apartments and homes flooded this time. Keeping all in my thoughts.

  5. Glad you are okay, and hoping this finds your husband 100% well!

  6. I have never experienced a hurricane but I'm sure it is terrifying. Glad you are OK and that power was soon restored.
    I am honoured that you have featured one of my posts again.

  12. Hi Richelle,
    I'm glad your power is back on ☺️we were without power for a week a few years back door for to horrific storms & flooding.
