"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

What does "GREEN" Mean to You?

I have been going to Turkey Hill Ranch Bible Camp every year since I was 8.

It is in the Ozarks in Missouri, & ,man, is it green there in the beginning of August.
(& HOT......& HUMID.......but, for now.......
it's easy to forget those two parts of it! Ha!!!! Ha!!!)

Colorado just seems to always be BROWN.

Don’t get me wrong……I love Colorado & I think it’s beautiful…….but that GREEN…..it’s almost so beautiful it hurts. (especially when you only see it a few weeks out of the year!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
But……the green there also signifies all the growth that THRBC has produced in my life.

Countless messages from God’s Word.

Summers spent as a teen/early 20’s serving others there.

Times of fellowship with other Christians.

Such a special place-know what I mean?
I’m sure some of you have places like that-they almost “speak to you”
when you see a picture of them……
But……I’m the most excited that GREEN means SPRING is on it’s way!

So……since the kids have been too sick for us to enjoy much spring yet THIS year,
here they are almost a year ago!
Aren’t they all so little!?!?
Can't get enough "GREEN!?!?"Winky

I can't wait for spring either. We had a few spring like days this week. I wish spring weather was here to stay.
