"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

Bloggy Break!!

As much as I hate to, I need to take a bloggy break.  Life is super crazy around here!  (imagine that-w/ moving, Dave going overseas for two weeks & a major road trip-all in the next 5 weeks of my life!)

Feel free to browse around my blog-I recommend our adoption story if you've never read it (links on sidebar).

Next time I blog consistantly, I'll be in our new home!  (but, I am putting major miles on our van the middle of July-the begining of August.  Who knows?!  I might get really bored & decide to blog from my mobile.  Aww, who am I trying to kid?  I probably will.  So, check back every once in a while-or better yet, subscribe to my blog!)

I'm Taking TIME.....

For things like picnics.....reading books.....taking pictures & cuddling w/ my kids.

Any other good ideas for me? What would you take time for while you have so much on your plate?

Something to ponder...

O Christ, in Thee my soul hath found,
And found in Thee alone,
The peace, the joy I sought so long,
The bliss till now unknown.


Now none but Christ can satisfy,
None other Name for me!
There’s love, and life, and lasting joy,
Lord Jesus, found in Thee.

I sighed for rest and happiness,
I yearned for them, not Thee;
But, while I passed my Savior by,
His love laid hold on me.


I tried the broken cisterns, Lord,
But, ah, the waters failed;
Even as I stooped to drink they fled,
And mocked me as I wailed.


The pleasures lost I sadly mourned,
But never wept for Thee,
Till grace the sightless eyes received,
Thy loveliness to see.

Bountifully Blessed....

Answered Prayer.....
For years I had been praying for energy.  I had been needing a nap every afternoon-no matter how much sleep I got.

But, the other day, as I was looking/praying over my prayer list-I realised-Hallelujah-energy is something I no longer struggle w/ on a daily basis! 

I am so thankful to my Father that He revealed that it might be celiac dragging me down-& I'm so thankful to be off gluten!

Any blessing from our Father you care to share today?
