Thank you for visiting A Common Life.
I am an early 40-something wife of 17 years, married to a godly man who is an excellent pastor to our family. The Lord worked it out so my soul-mate and I met at a home Bible study during our college years, which is when we both surrendered our lives to God. The Mr. was studying chemical engineering and I was studying forestry. Shortly after graduating, we wed.
We home school our three children who are rapidly approaching adulthood. Being outdoors as soon as spring nears is akin to breathing to me. Our yard houses four bunnies and eight chickens, and our indoor/outdoor cat fearlessly protects the vast lands within her domain. I love it all.
I hope something you read here will be a comfort, will challenge you to improve your life, or will help you draw closer to the one true God.
Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. “If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:12-14
