"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

"Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming"

1.Lo, how a rose e'er blooming, from tender stem hath sprung.
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
As men of old have sung;
It came, a flow'ret bright,
Amid the cold of winter,
When halfspent was the night.

2. Isaiah 'twas foretold it, the Rose I bear in mind,
With Mary we behold it,
The virgin mother kind;
To show God's love aright,
She bore to men a Savior,
When halfspent was the night.

3. O Flower, whose fragrance tender, with sweetness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious splendour
The darkness everywhere;
True man, yet very God,
From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.

Another one of my favorites. I've been doing Christmas hymns through the week myself ( think I already told you that). I have the exact same one ready with same You Tube link ready for tomorrow.
Merry Christmas to you all. Enjoy your time with your mom & dad when they arrive. Trusting your dad's neck is mended and good for the travel.
