"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Sunshine Streaming in my Dining Room.....

The accomplished feeling of already having been to the gym.

Coffee cup in hand.

Birds greeting the day outside my window.

& this song reverberates through my mind….

“When morning guilds the skies,
My heart awakening cries
‘May Jesus Christ be praised!’
Alike at work or prayer
To Jesus I repair:
May Jesus Christ be praised!”
Edward Caswall

Running to my hymnal to see who wrote the hymn,
my eyes drifted across the page & saw the hymn "Still, Still with Thee.”

Written by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Do you know who she is?

I had my suspicions, & using the ever questionable source of “reliable” information:
Wikipedia, I found that, yes indeed, she was also the author of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”

Who knew? She also wrote hymns….wow!

Learn something new every day, don’t we?
May we use our days to praise Jesus!
Ana's pony ride earlier this week.
Friend Anjali, is looking on!

Not to be outdone by her big sister,

Ruth had to ride, too!

"Ok....I'm too little to ride a pony,

but I'm not too little to eat Cheerios!"

Both babies wearing "smocked" outfits my mom made them.

Ana has out grown all of the dresses my mom made for her..........so hers is from Target!!!

Have a great day, everyone!
