As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Coming in October...

I am gearing up for my third 31-day series!

Two years ago, I joined Nester and a gazillion other bloggers who wrote every day for the month of October. My first series was 31 Days to Make a House a Home.  Last October I was back at it and wrote 31 Days of Hospitality: Not to Impress, But to Bless.

It is quite a commitment to write for 31 days straight, especially if you tend to procrastinate and stay up late for a whole month getting posts ready to publish for the next day.  (Not that would know anything about that.) I considered omitting the 31-ness this year; I didn't think that I had another topic about which I could be enthused for 31 days straight! But over the summer an idea came to me...and I am totally excited about sharing my thoughts with you again this October!  

Yes, we'll be celebrating!  I'll be chatting away about holidays, birthdays, milestones, and everyday occasions. I'll be sharing recipes, a tutorial, easy tips, and a fun little giveaway...all with celebrations in mind!

I invite you to join me. 

Every day in October. 

It will be a celebration!
