Our Common Ground


Our Common Ground

Mutual respect

cultivates seeds of friendship

our common ground

Wendy /2015


These trees, different from each other, share common ground, and the park is made more beautiful because of their harmony.




Finding where we agree and share commonality is a great way to prepare a field for sowing God’s Love.

I remember people reaching out to me even though my lifestyle was different from theirs.

Love and prayers built a bridge I eventually crossed.

A Fertile Place 

Within our common ground

is a fertile place

where seeds may be sown

of God’s amazing grace.



And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.

But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13


Blessings of God’s love ~ Wendy


What drew you to God? Did someone build a bridge of love? I’d love to hear about it. Feel free to include a link to a blog post where you may already have written about this topic. Maybe you’re still undecided about faith stuff. What puzzles you the most about spiritually?




Have you checked out my latest post on Wendy L Macdonald.com ?

It’s a poignant post about prayer: Will I Still Believe?

See you there.

  1. Well it wasn’t the 4 spiritual laws pamphlet Wendy! It was, as you said, people loving me where I was at and I know they would have continued loving me even If I stayed there in the same place. <3

    1. Diana, I remember reading the 4 spiritual laws pamplet and saying the prayer in it. But it wasn’t until a Christian reached out to me, years later, that I actually began to follow and believe. <3 Love's the key.

    1. Thank you, Diane. I’m finding it helpful with parenting since offspring tend to spring off in all directions as they test their wings. They need to feel accepted unconditionally as they explore.

  2. I loved your poem and photographs so much! I will have to come back and share. The Lord has used so many different people and experiences to draw me to Him throughout my life. I am not sure if I can come up with a definitive answer. Currently you and my other blogging friends are playing a big part.

    Hugs and Blessings,

    1. Thank you, dear Theresa. I suspect there are many people the Lord has drawn to Himself, through you. Your posts and your visits always encourage me to keep looking to Him for my hope. xo
