True Love is the name of this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up. With all the talk of love in the air, from the recent holiday, I appreciated Sherry's reminder of our greatest example of true love.
Sherry writes at, The Charm of Home. If you haven't yet had the joy of visiting this lovely blog, let me tell you, you're going to want to fix yourself a cup of tea and prepare to sit down and enjoy yourself for awhile. Her beautiful words and images are a treat.
Thank you for sharing your post with us last week at Grace and Truth, Sherry.
And now...it's time to link-up!
There's a need for boundaries when it comes to social media. I love this week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up because it gives us some ideas on how to do this. It's called, Social Media and Boundaries, by Ally, who writes at The Speckled Goat. I also love that she wrote about this sensitive topic in such a sweet and non-judgemental way. What the right boundary line is for each of us will look different- but we all need to be intentional about this our approach, particularly in these contentious times. I hope you'll go say hello to Ally and be encouraged as I was.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, Showing Off: A Purpose in the Choosing, by Sue Moore Donaldson, who writes at Welcome Heart. How can we show God's excellencies today? I love this question. Sue asks this and provides some great suggestions. I also love to think about being intentionally chosen by God. This post was such an encouragement to me. I hope you'll go say hello to Sue and enjoy her sweet words.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is by Rachel Britton. It's called, Simple Steps for Recharging and Recovering. There are so many great and practical suggestions in this post. I'm really trying to be more intentional about both my prayer time and my exercise time this year, so reading this was perfect timing. I think you will be encouraged, too, so I hope you'll go check it out and say hello!
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is called, Learning to Release Fear and Embrace God, by Jenn, who writes at Embracing Life. Fear is something that I’ve been learning to let go of for most of my life. I love what Jenn wrote about letting go of the things that aren’t good for us so that we can embrace what God has for us. It's an encouraging post. I hope you'll go say hello to Jenn and be blessed by her words as I was.
This week's featured post for Grace and Truth is called, Razzle-Bright Blessing, by Pam of Apples of Gold. I felt so peaceful after reading her words…and the photos are beautiful. There are simple wonders all around. We just need to pause and notice. Thank you for this wonderful reminder, Pam.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link-up is called, Under Construction This Christmas. It's written by Angela Howard of No Ordinary Days. I loved the simple yet profound truth in this post. We must always remember the hope which we celebrate each Christmas is found in Christ alone. I can certainly relate to the feeling like I'm in a perpetual state of construction. I hope that you'll take a moment to visit Angela and be blessed by her words as I was.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is called, A Prayer for Peaceful Expectations by Sarah Geringer. This prayer is beautiful. I felt myself exhale and I felt more peace as I read her words and agreed in my heart. I hope you'll take a moment to read and be encouraged by Sarah's words as I was. Thank you for sharing and for linking up last week at Grace and Truth, Sarah.
This week's featured post for the Grace and Truth link up is called, The Joy of Showing Hospitality at Christmas Time, by Belinda Letchford, who writes at, Live Life With Your Kids. Showing hospitality, all year round, but especially at Christmas, is a good way to show our kids that it’s not all about us, but rather, Christ in us. I loved the sweet stories she shared about her family's experiences with hospitality over the years. I hope you'll pop over, say hello, and be blessed by her words as I was. Belinda, thank you for linking with Grace and Truth last week.
