"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

Days Gone By.......& why I love them.

My love of history is a bit overwhelming to my hubby at times, I think.

I mean, on our honeymoon, I drug him to the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse on the continent.

On our honeymoon!!! (how mean, right?)

So, the other day, when I had a whole night & a day off, I decided to visit a restored ghost town here in CO-while I didn’t have anyone else to keep happy/entertained!

It was delightful! About 40 restored buildings with a mini-museum in each one. Heaven for a history buff like me!

I wandered around & looked at everything & stopped to read every sign that struck my fancy!


I have thought a good deal about this, & I think part of the reason history fascinates me so much is that I covet some parts of those simpler times.

I mean, when I am forced to go without many modern conveniences (once each summer I am without any cell coverage or internet accesses) , I prioritize better & enjoy my family more.

Can anyone else relate to this? Talk to me……. :)

A few other pics from my "get-away!"
