Grace at Home No. 497

Hello, friends! What a momentous week this has been for me. This past weekend I took my son back to his home—he'd lived here with his dad and me for three months, but now he is recovering well and started back to work this week. Praise God! And thank you to all of you who have prayed for him over the past few months.

Our house is very quiet now. For the past three months we've had not only our son but also his dog and cat living with us. But I'm hoping now to get things organized for the new year.

And now I'm glad to welcome you to 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 working on getting your home organized (I'm raising my hand!)? Diane from South House Designs gives complete DIY instructions for creating this overhead storage system.

Need to get very specific with your organization efforts? Regina at Saved from Salvage has great ideas for organizing your guest bathroom.

Do you like to decorate your home for St. Patrick's Day? Mary Jo from Master"PIECES" of my Life has some inspiration for you.

Last but not least, I think you'll be both challenged and encouraged by this post from Cami at InstaEncouragements.

Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!

Here are the Grace at Home party, you can link up any post you've written that demonstrates how you're filling your life with truth, goodness, and beauty. For instance, I invite you to link posts about

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 to your site's home page. Please let people know that you've linked up. No more than three posts per person, please.
