"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

Happy Birthday to My Oldest "Baby!!!"

Ana-my dear girl-
I thought I would just take a minute & tell you some of the reasons I love you!

You are such an interesting mix right now-one minute-mature & seemingly 1/2 way to 21 (insert sobbing sound!)........& the next minute-thrilled to pieces over a new doll! An American Girl doll you have always wanted! (thank-you Grandmother & Grandad!)

The protective way you mother & take care of your sister & brother......
Your creative & immaginative mind! You decided the other day that the playhouse needed a roof-so you built one yourself!
But, mostly, Ana, your Daddy & I love the way you have wholeheartely cared for those less fortunate than you, the way you KNOW that the terrorists NEED JESUS, & that YOU want to go & tell them about Him-Whom to know is life eternal.

You are constantly reminding us of people/situations we need to pray for, & we are humbled every day by your heart of compassion! May you never loose it!

Much love-to our precious oldest gift from God!
P.S. This post is scheduled for 2:22 AM, the exact moment our lives were changed forever in 2001!
