"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

This Makes me Smile, for Some Reason......


She starts 3rd Grade today.
Happy & sad-all rolled in together for her mom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are you good at establishing traditions?
I grew up with a lot.
But, I haven't been so good at starting many of my own.

So, as I got ready for today,
last night as I was preparing for today,
I remembered last year’s first day of school.

& I dug out the pancake mix.

I’m so glad I did!
She’ll be thrilled to see the words
“3rd Grade” spelled out on her plate when she arrives at the breakfast table,
don’t you think?

I’ll report back later on for how she did on her day-
I’m super excited as her teacher!!!
We have a lot of fun things planned for tomorrow!
