Well, this Autumn just presents our family with one adventure after another. I'm so sorry that I missed last Thursday's party, but we were back at the hospital for yet another complex procedure for my husband. We're hoping that this will be the last hospital visit of the season for us, but we're learning to take one day at a time and to trust God more and more for the outcomes.
Meanwhile, y'all have been busy! And I'm glad to have the chance to share some of what you've been up to lately at today's Grace at Home party, where we pause to celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty. Here are some highlights from last week's party I think you'll enjoy.
Do you ever find pieces of furniture at a thrift store that seem like they might work for you but they just aren't quite your style? You should take a look at this amazing side table remake from Regina at Saved from Salvage.
Do you want your home to be decorated for Thanksgiving but you just haven't gotten around to it (I'm raising my hand!)? Carol from Bluesky at Home shares nine tips for creating a Thanksgiving mantel in just 30 minutes.
And if you need some Thanksgiving decor to use, check out these free printables from Julie at My Wee Abode.
I'm betting you like to read. Do you read mostly fiction or non-fiction? (As the author of a non-fiction book, I'm hoping you read at least some non-fiction!) Lisa from Lisa Notes on Seeing God shares five ways to get more from reading nonfiction books.
In the week leading up to Thanksgiving, I'm always looking for new and different dinner ideas—nothing resembling turkey and dressing! Kimberly from Loulou Girls shares a recipe for Creamy Lemon Pork chops that looks delicious.
Are you in a season of needing to trust God more fully? I certainly am, so I appreciate the way Dr. Michelle Bengtson shares her wisdom in recognizing God as her protector.
