About Common To Moms

There are many common life experiences we share as women, and sometimes life is less than glorious. That’s when we need a little inspiration to get us through the day. Welcome to Common to Moms, where we find motivation for meaningful living on our every-day journey as women, wives and mothers.

Whole. Complete. Who is? Not me. To be whole is to be joy. Incomplete is sadness, loneliness. There is a being that is Whole. A creator. Oh the Creator of this universe! I cannot even comprehend "wholeness" since to be Whole is something I am not, and the God who is whole is so much bigger than my capacity to understand Him! I keep thinking of the universe- the stars, the galaxies- as a picture of His wholeness. There is beauty and form and thoughtful intention in the grandeur of His creation and in the minute details; the dust, the dirt and the atoms that make us up. We are creation. We are a part of His whole. Only by God's grace do we have an understanding of Him and how full He has made all things that are living to be.


Oh Geeze. Those thoughts were so beautiful in my head- there was a word picture happening and five minutes of stream of consciousness left them a little hard to follow as an outsider. Oh well! It was fun and a challenge. Oh yeah, why did I do this? I found this idea for a "Five Minute Friday" topic here. So I decided to link up with The Gypsy Mama for this exercise. You can do it too if you feel so inclined.

Here's how to link up (Gypsy Mama's Guidelines)
  1. Write your words without editing them.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to come and share their unedited stories too.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and compliment the person who shared right before you.

Easy peasy. OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:


So are you going to try it? You can link here too- I would love to read yours! :)

Love, Rachel


  1. Beautiful! :) I can see the picture you are painting- and it is beautiful- and oh so true!

  2. Hi Heather! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment. This was my 2nd week of doing this writing exercise and I am hooked. You are so right in that God Himself is the only one who is truly whole. But I am so thankful that He is making us whole!

    I am your newest blog follower!

  3. Hi Barbie! I'm so excited to have you as a follower! It's nice to "meet" you! :)


  4. Hi Heather! I'm glad you could see where I was going with that. I wasn't sure if it translated. :)
