"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

"Help For the Home" Harvest of Ideas

Your “Must Haves.”

I’m not sure what else to call this, but these are things you
“must have” to keep you at peace in the space you call home.

For me, they are:

1. I MUST HAVE my bed made.
Making The Bed
2. I MUST not trip on anything when I walk in the house from the garage.
3. I MUST HAVE my kitchen sink clean & my coffee for the next day made before I head to bed.
Coffee Drinker
4. I MUST HAVE the area next to my sink on the kitchen counters clean at some point every day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s it, really.
(Ha!!! Ha!!! You are probably thinking,
“Wow! Her standards are pretty low!”
But, hey, at least I have some standards!!!)

If these things are done
(& each one only takes 5 minutes or less if I have done them the day before),
then I feel at peace.

What are your “must haves?”

The important thing to remember is-only you know what they are.

Leave me a comment & I'll link your blog!

Thanks for your imput:
