"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

Thursdays Before the Throne: (Peace......What Does it Mean to You?)

(Two posts in one day! Scroll down for some cute Natty pics!!!)

Both of the following verses were part of my Bible reading yesterday.

Coincidence???? I think not!

I will hear what God the LORD will speak,

For He will speak peace To His people and to His saints;
Psalm 85:8

Jesus is speaking here:
Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27


Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?

The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?

To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round?

On Jesus’ bosom naught but calm is found.

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?

In Jesus’ keeping we are safe, and they.

Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?

Jesus we know, and He is on the throne.

Edward Bickersteth, 1875


Do you know this kind of peace?

Do you know the Prince of Peace-Jesus, Himself?

Yes, it IS perfect PEACE, isn't it, Anna?

Hope you all are feeling better.

Now I'm a bit sick....so I'm off to bed!
