Grace at Home No. 489

Hello friends! I am so grateful to welcome you here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty.

I truly appreciate the many messages of encouragement you left on my last post. My son is continuing to do okay, although it's really hard to wait weeks for a surgical procedure and to be unable to do anything in the meantime. I'm staying busy caring for him and trying to do a little bit of Christmas preparation—so I was delighted to see what all you've been doing to prepare for Christmas! 

Here are some highlights from last week's party I think you'll enjoy.

Want to see a home decorated beautifully but simply for Christmas? Check out this tour from Diane at In My Own Style.

Do you have a small space but still want to decorate? You'll be inspired by this home tour from Julie at My Wee Abode.

Looking for simple ways to set a festive table this Christmas? Carol from Comfort Spring Station has some great ideas for you.

The Christmas season is a wonderful time, but it can be a difficult time if you're dealing with grief. If you're experiencing grief this season, Kathryn from the Dedicated House has some really helpful suggestions.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week'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!
