"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

The Adventure........(& yes, camp with three kids IS an adventure!)


I’m here! I am not here for good, but I thought I’d check in & let everyone know how things are going!

We are having a ball! No one is sick (like last year), & everyone is sleeping through the night.

(I know, I know, my standards for what makes a good time are very low-ha!)

We have done all the things you are supposed to do at camp…..& today I get to tell you all about it!

BUT…..I had all these things I was GOING to share, & they have kind of fallen by the wayside.

Privileged……yes, I am (& the other 250 people here). Just wait til you hear about my week.

2 messages each morning, & one each night.

Messages of encouragement to be more the people God wants us to be.

Anyway, I WAS going to tell you how to camp with kids, but that will have to wait.

The messages have not only been encouraging, they have been convicting.

The speakers have been reminding us that we must be obedient to the Word of God & the Holy Spirit’s prompting in our lives. Especially when it comes to practically loving others. God wants us to love people/relationships more than things, which it is so easy to forget.

These are the verses that the Lord has been laying on my heart:

Titus 2:4&5

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober,
to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good,
obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

I don’t know about you, but for me, it is easy to resent my husband & yes, even my children sometimes…..especially in weeks like this, where before children/husband, I could do whatever I wanted, & get in all the fellowship I wanted. Boy, has the Lord stopped me up short!!!

Anyway, I only have a few minutes (blogging on the free wireless that I had to drive to the top of the hill to get-&leave the kids in the capable hands of my hubby), so I wanted to share a few pics from the week, too.
Blogger is acting up.....so check back later!

Hopefully, I can squeeze in one more post before I go home, so check back over the weekend or early next week!

Its so good to hear how you're going Kim...I miss your posts!

So glad all is going well and you're loving the teaching you're getting. Isn't it great to be able to have the time to just take in some great teaching and get refreshed and enthused again! Sounds like its been very helpful and challenging at the same time.

Have a great rest of your time and look forward to seeing all those pics!

God Bless,

You're good. Getting a blog in at camp!

I'm excited to hear the speaker and what he has from the Word. We are packing up today.

I hope the rest of your travels are wonderful.
