"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

I'm ashamed to admit it,
but before my grand "Touch everything in my house & find it a home" mission,
(which I began in January) this is how our entryway often looked.
Now, it consistantly looks like this:
(& please no one remind me that part of the reason may be due to putting away winter gear!)
(oh, & if you are wondering, that is our front licence plate from our accident in January. I want to always remember how the Lord spared our lives......& seeing this every day helps me!)
This area is where I started on my mission to take back my house,
& now my tip is,
WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED WITH YOUR WHOLE HOUSE,
GO BACK & START OVER AGAIN.
& that's what you see here.

I did have a simple Rubbermaid shelf here,
but I knew I wanted something a bit nicer.
The other day, I found the perfect cabinet,
so I purged even more
(it is smaller than the shelves were)
& now I can look at this every time I come home,
instead of what used to greet me!
In here, you see how the kids each have an area of the shelf to store things that on their way in or out of the house. My area's on top, & Dave has a spot for his computer, too.
Now, I move on to my family room & see if I can purge more.......or re-organize better......or improve the "look" of my room some other way!

Don't forget to leave your tips & I'll link your blog!!!
