What Gratituesday Is All About (and how I plan to keep the focus on gratitude)

I began writing Gratituesday posts when my blog was just a baby – I believe back in January of 2008. I loved the idea of focusing one post each week on God’s work in my life – plus it helped keep my thoughts focused on what I was thankful for.

A few months after I began writing my own Gratituesday posts, I opened it up for my readers to also participate in this weekly blog post theme. I added a “Mr. Linky” so that other bloggers could write a Gratituesday post and then link up here. Over time, more and more people began joining in, and soon, we were able to click over and read many Gratituesday blog posts which shared about God’s provision and care. I found it to be inspiring, and a huge dose of God-focused encouragement every Tuesday.

Hey, guess what? I still do. I LOVE reading your Gratituesday posts.

Except for when they aren’t really Gratituesday posts.

I have to say that I can find it a bit discouraging to click on your Gratituesday link and instead of reading about what God is doing for you and your family, I find a tip about how to clean purple sharpie marker ink out of my carpet. As wonderful as it would be to learn this information, this does nothing for my spiritual walk. Nor do your recipe tips or your ideas for decorating on a budget. Again, these are some great posts and wonderful tips, they just don’t really fit with the Gratituesday theme.

Somehow over the course of four years of Gratituesday linking, gratitude got lost. Don’t get me wrong – many of your posts do share what God is doing in your life. Many of you are writing specific posts about what you are grateful for – keep it up!! I love it!

But I’m finding it hard to find the grateful posts among all the posts that tell me how to organize my sock drawer.

I feel yucky writing this post today. I’m not trying to be the mean neighborhood lady who stands on her porch grouching at the kids who are just trying to have fun. I’ve not cracked down on this earlier because I don’t like to be the bad guy. Plus, enforcing that Gratituesday posts remain Gratituesday posts will take a lot of time that I really do not have each week. Do I really want to go in and analyze each post and then decide whether or not to go delete it? No ma’am. I sure don’t.

But enough already of the “how to avoid getting gassy when you eat a lot of beans” posts when Gratituesday is really about giving praise to our Father.  (And for the record, I’m making up these non-Gratituesday related blog topics as I go. I don’t specifically remember anyone posting about gas or sock drawers or sharpie markers – just in case you did and you think I’m picking on you.)

The thought has occurred to my husband and me that it might be fun to add some sort of “Heavenly Homemaking Helpful Hints” link-up once a month, so that those of you who do want to link these other wonderful posts full of helpful hints have that opportunity here on our site. We’d love for you to share these homemaking type posts, when it is appropriate, and if we host a link-up for that purpose.   What are your thoughts on us adding this feature to our site?? We’d appreciate your feedback on this.

In the meantime, I’m asking you to please join me in keeping the gratitude to God in Gratituesday. Write and share about what you are grateful for. And please thoughtfully link back to my blog on your post, saying something like Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers! – because that’s the kind bloggy thing to do when you link up with someone.

If I feel that a post is not in line with the Gratituesday theme that I know my readers are looking for, I will delete the link. I won’t enjoy myself, but I feel that I owe this to my readers. I’d be ever so, well…grateful…if you’d make this deleting job easier and not give me anything to delete. Simply write and link up a post about what God is doing in your life and we’re all good to go! Because I know that God is working all the time in all of our lives, I’m very sure you can think of something each week to share! And as always, for those of you who don’t have blogs, please continue to share what you are grateful for each Gratituesday in the comments section.

So there you go. Can we still be friends? I’ve been needing to, but not wanting to write this post for several months now. I love and appreciate you all and would like to hear your thoughts on this subject, and on the idea of beginning a new monthly feature/link-up allowing us to share homemaking tips.

Okay. Your thoughts? Questions?

    Agree. I don’t have a blog or website, just enjoy reading yours. I’m gonna say it, though I’m afraid some won’t like it. I feel like some people use the comments section of yours and other popular blogs to drive traffic to their website. It may not technically be spam, but it sure feels like it. Thanks for saying this, and keeping the bar high!

    Ditto ditto to what Emma said! I am so glad you wrote this. :)
    And I think having a monthly or bi-weekly or whatever you choose for helpful tips would be fun and well, helpful :)

    Ah, Laura, sorry you had to write that post! Linky parties are all the rage in the blogging world right now. I’m fairly certain you could run a “Heavenly Homemaking Tips” linky every week and get a ton of participation.

    It’s funny to read this post tonight when just this Tuesday I clicked on some of the links and thought “Wow, this is really interesting but it has nothing to do with gratitude.” So for what it’s worth, I’ll say Good job, Laura! Hope you’re not feeling like the bad guy. :) I love your blog (and lots of others I’ve discovered thru yours too). Keep up the good work.

    Good for you for writing this post, Laura. It can be so hard to say things like this but it needs to be done sometimes to keep things rolling smoothly in the bloggy world! I think your new tips linky is a great idea and I bet a lot of people would join. I have only done a couple of Gratituesday posts but I am eager to participate again.. Thanks for all that you do, I don’t comment much but your blog is one of my favorites and you make me laugh so much!

    Oh, I bet that was hard to write! (you did a great job with it)
    I look forward to Gratituesday every week. I have linked up a few of my thankful posts in the past, but always felt guilty because I didn’t write them on a Tuesday! :) so I stopped. I’m such a stickler.
    I would click on more linkys if I knew they were in fact gratitude posts, though. So I’m glad you addressed this. Thank you!

    And I would love exploring the links connected to a handy/tip link-up if you decide to do that!

    Laura Reply:

    Ha! It definitely is okay for you to write your post on a day other than Tuesday and still link up – as long as you wrote about something you’re grateful for!

    I will admit that I had stopped checking out other blogs in the link up because they were random post. I would still click on them from the comments because they seemed more genuine. It is such an encouragement when you find a few spare minutes in your day to sit down and read other’s gratitude post. You inspired me to post a Gratituesday post every week. It is a great reminder to pause and be thankful. I’m looking forward to reading more!
    Thank you for addressing this issue even though I’m sure it was very difficult.

    If I have ever done what you have described I pray your forgiveness. I don’t remember ever not posting an actual gratituesday but I am old, so perhaps I did.
    I too have clicked on links and have found no gratituesday button on the site so I just click out. I stopped clicking on links. I have my hands full like you do. I know this post must have been difficult but you did it with much grace. Love you

    This is one of the reasons I love your website, because you are not afraid to do or say what God is calling you to do, even when its hard. There are so many things, even “good” things that can distract us from being truly grateful for all God is doing in our lives and I’m so thankful you are adament about keeping the focus on Jesus and how awesome He is. That is what life is all about after all! :) Have a great weekend and thanks again for all the recipes and encouragement you give. I always enjoy coming to see whats new on your page. Don’t ever get discouraged or overwhelmed, but just focus on what God is calling you to do and relax and rest in His grace. Take care :)

    I appreciate your integrity on this – none of us has time to waste, and if we are looking for inspiration and find homemaking tips instead, it IS a waste. I love the idea of allowing people a way to share those tips – and then I’ll know where to go looking for those when I need them, too. Thanks for the hard work that you do, and for saying the hard things as well.

  21. Lana says

    I had been thinking the same thing so do not feel bad at all about bringing it up! BTW-we DO have a mean neighborhood lady. She puts notes in our mailboxes when she wants to speak her mind! You certainly did not come across like she does!

    I like that you want to keep Gratituesday a grateful to God day. I also like that maybe a monthly helpful tips section would be a good addition. Its always nice to be able to reference little tips when needed. But just to go to the other side for a minute. I don’t exactly have my own website with tips or mom things, it’s quite unrelated. (that aside) I wonder if those that maybe have lost the meaning of Gratituesday really realize it? Maybe they are grateful that they got that stain out and want to shout it from the rooftops but don’t feel comfortable saying it so freely “thanks be to God for giving me the strength and elbow grease to get that sharpie Mona Lisa off the hallway wall” You know where some folks feel great and comfortable giving Him all the praise and some aren’t quite there yet, maybe that could be the case? Just giving another perspective and I too have raised an eyebrow about how sometimes other things related to the theme. But I thought to myself “hey maybe I’ll be thankful for knowing that next week”
    The integrity of your site should stay exactly the way you want it to always. It’s your gift to many and believe me I am grateful for you.
    And I have to tell you that some Tuesdays, for some odd reason, leave me not feeling all that thankful for one reason or another and it is so nice to see your posts then because it makes me stop, breathe, and think, “hey I have a lot to be grateful for”

    [Reply]

  23. says

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me! I think it’s good to keep things focused. If it’s not on topic, it can be shared with some other link-up!

    [Reply]

  24. says

    I’m one of the guilty party…sorry! I didn’t realize there was a specific kind of post you were looking for. I took it as these were things I was learning in the kitchen around the home, etc which is one way God is working in my life and I like to share the tips/posts with others. So,I misunderstood and apologize. It might help to have some very specific criteria for linking in Gratituesday listed in your link-instructions box to help clear up any other confused bloggers like myself. :)

    No prob! I simply haven’t been as specific about it and decided to fix that. No worries at all!

    I’m glad you’re doing this. I posted one or two Gratitude links…but then stopped reading this feature because there were so many links that were off topic.

    I find this to be an issue on other blogs too – mom blogs, hobby blogs, and finance blogs that I read. Other bloggers DO list their rules. It doesn’t stop everyone for mis-posting, but it at least cuts down.

    It’s YOUR blog – you don’t have to feel a bit bad about enforcing some rules. :)

    Hi Laura,
    I found your blog several months ago and saved it to my favorites list, but then I deleted it because I am not religious and didn’t feel comfortable reading about religion and God. I came back to your blog and saved it to my favorites list again because I find this blog very interesting and informative. Even though I’m not a religious person, I feel that I can still learn many things without focusing on the religious part. I’ve never felt like you discriminate against non-religious readers and I appreciate that. I’ve even saved some of your recipes and would like to try some of them in the future, especially the recipes for homemade butterscotch, chocolate, and white chocolate chips. This really is a great blog and I hope to learn a lot from you. I watched your video on how to grind whole wheat flour and I really want to get myself a grain mill. I’ve been eating more white whole wheat flour, but I want to grind my own. Thanks for all the great articles on your blog.

    I’m grateful to God that he’s calling me back to himself. I had strayed from him for years and made half-hearted attempts to get back to Him. I’m disabled & it’s very difficult to make it to church or to sit for an hour or more for a sermon. I’ve been so blessed to find blogs like yours that encourage me in my walk with God and in keeping my home. Keep up the good work! You’re helping so many people in so many ways! God bless!

    Thank you. I find it discouraging to take part in link ups where some (sometimes many) don’t hold to the rules/topic at hand. I want to read related content, not try to help someone get more traffic.

    Thank you for saying it so gently.

    I have wondered about this as well.. sometimes when I am done reading the Gratitude’s Day post, I want to read more like it. Don’t get me wrong, I have read and even subscribed to several of the bloggers who link to your page and I really like them. I think that it is wonderfully gracious =) of you to allow other bloggers to link to your page. So I think that adding a different day to link up – like household tips (like you suggested) would be great!!

    [Reply]

  33. Erin says

    Now I realize that I’m not very technical because I have no idea what a link-up is and have never seen any of these or at least been aware of it at the time. I went to the “Links” tab to find but I don’t think that is is. Hmmm. . . . thank you for the great blogging and I am always grateful for “truth in love.” As Christians we need to be able to receive it always looking for ways to please our Lord and we also need to know how to share truth in love always looking for ways to help one another in our walks with the Lord. Good job and maybe one day I will figure out this linkie thing.

    Good for you for writing this though I know it was hard. I must say, all of the non-gratitude links have been a bit dis-heartening. Most people just get caught up in the blog-link craze, I think. I linked for the first time last week. :) You blog has been such a blessing for me and my family. You’re a gem!

  38. Lauren says

    I just hope that the people this post is about (those posting non-gratitude related links to get traffic) actually do read it. From the looks of the comments, most people that responded are those that are considerate and did actually take the time to read this. I have a feeling that the people that usually put their links up when they’re unrelated are often the ones that don’t bother to check the guidelines.

    I think you were 100% right to write this though, and I echo the comments of others saying I stopped clicking the links when I realised people weren’t playing along – which really isn’t fair to all the people who did take the time to write a lovely gratitude-related post!

  44. Michele says

    I have quite a bit to be thankful for…but one in particular. A week ago from today…I was coming back from getting gas at the gas station to fill up my rotortiller. I had my Choc. Lab with me and two dogs from down the road were in our drive. So I thought I would walk our dog down there to scare them. DUMB ME to think I could walk a dog, an 80 lb dog towards other dogs. I did fall and was dragged across gravel but I do not have broken bones, a dislocated shoulder or anything serious. I had a hard time being thankful on Sat. when I was hurting but I do have so very much to be thankful for as I heal.

    I’m am greatful for how God has used all things, both good and bad, in my life to teach me how to be more like Christ. I am greatful he has blessed me with two beautiful daughters and a loving husband.

    I have been feeling so blessed lately. I am a wife and mother to two energetic and funny boys. When I got married I knew I wanted about 3 kids. My husband said he wanted 1. We kind of agreed (reluctantly on my part) to have 2. Over the past several months he’s commented about “if we were to get pregnant…” or “if we have another…” I feel very excited that God’s worked on my husband’s heart. I know he wasn’t close to his siblings. That being the reason he was fine having one child. We’re trying to get pregnant and it is such a blessing to me. I am honored to be a child of the most high King. Thank you Jesus! Even when things don’t go my way I still feel blessed to call you Abba Father.
