"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

While I was looking for WET pics,
I came across this CUTE pic of Ana!
She was about 4, and was playing
"Anne of Green Gables"-
I just had to include this!

Natty & his cousin Noah......bathing after a
particularly messy meal at my Mom's two months ago.

But, the following picture represented something HUGE for me.
Ana has gone to Bible camp every year of her life.
Family camp with her daddy & I.
In July of 2006, we got Ruth's referal 2 weeks before camp.
It was important to me to have some *part* of Ruth there.......& I subjected everyone there to pictures of her in a plastic sleave.

To me, this picture represented a HOST of dreams on the verge of being fulfilled.
(a sister for Ana, another little girl for us.......prayers we had fervently prayed since Ana was 2-we were FINALLY seeing the answer to)
It was like........I KNEW she would be there the next year, IN PERSON.
& she was!!!!
(she was super crabby & sick her first week of camp, but in 2007, she was there!!!)
Ana was playing in the Gasconade River here.
I know many of you have pics like this-
that capture such signifcant times & emotions.
I would love to hear about yours!

Take care,

I love that first photo of Ana- I knew exactly what was going on =) Charlie and his brothers have never seen Anne of Green Gables! But Lorien and I are going to change that (for Charlie at least).

Kim & Dave said...

Anna!!!! Super exciting!!! Praying for God's perfect timing!

Sara-Well, in some ways I'm not too surprised Charlie hasn't seen it! Maybe you & Jenny could have a movie fest with your hubbys & at least have two of the brothers covered!!! :D
