Do you think that God finds this Amusing?

I am driving home from a beautiful time of worshipping the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe and singing praises to my Savior and King. At a stop sign, I turn on KLOVE because (on occasion) they play wonderful worship songs and my CD player is broken, therefore I have limited music choices while in the car.

No song was playing. Instead, I hear the disc jockey laughing as she shares the following news article entitled "Top Ten Reasons to Go to Church" with the listeners. She thought that it was quite humorous and could really relate to reason #7 below. She then recommended that you read the entire list on KLOVE's website.

No, it was not written by David Letterman--that would be understandable. It was written by Bill Shuler, the pastor of the Capital Life Church in Arlington, Virginia.

So, last night I read about how youth are asked to "text message" their decisions for Christ on their cell phones at a "christian" concert and this morning I get to hear this on a "christian" radio station:

Top 10 Reasons to Go to Church

1. It’s a way to get a healthy glow without makeup.

2. Elvis started out in a church choir … so can you.

3. Goodness and mercy will follow you all the rest of your life–which are better than the IRS or FBI.

4. In this economy, it might be good to be hooked up with Someone who can turn water into wine.

5. You can walk down an aisle and approach an altar without having to gain a mother-in-law.

6. The Biblical admonition to “greet one another with a holy kiss” boosts your social life.

7. Hard Times? Kids getting on your nerves? Free coffee and child care at church!

8. The sound of money dropping is the offering, not your stocks.

9. Robes, candles, music…and it’s less expensive than a spa.

10. With April 15 coming, remember, Man does not live by Turbotax alone.

So I ask you, "Do you think God finds this amusing? Do you find this amusing? Frankly, if you do, you cannot possibly know God.

Painted Patio Wall Transformation - Our New "Secret Garden"

Michael and I have discovered a Secret Garden every where we have lived since getting married in 2010.  Whether it was the creek that ran behind our first apartment in Sacramento or the tiny little space of our 520 square foot, 1962 single-wide, mobile home in Rancho Cordova, California, we were always able to discover and create a unique sanctuary to call home.  Even though, in years past, we did what we could to make our surroundings uniquely wonderful, we never had the room to go really crazy until now.

Since moving to our new home in North Carolina in May, we have not only discovered a world of exotic creatures and plants outdoors, but we have also started taking full advantage of the additional space we now have available to add our own touch of whimsy to the new "Wood's Secret Garden".

Our first major project was the Patio which joins the in-law quarters (where mom lives) to the kitchen entrance into the main house.  We have received so many questions about "…

On the Market and Creating Quite a Stir! - Mobile Home for Sale in Rancho Cordova UPDATE: Sold

For those of you who have been following me on, you are already aware of all the work that went into making this 1964, single-wide, mobile home into what it is today.  We have enjoyed living in it for the past two and half years.  However, we will eventually be moving to North Carolina and therefore will be putting our little house on the market.  If you are interested in buying it, please leave a comment.  It is located in Rancho Cordova, California in a gated senior park and the lot space per month is under $700.    Take a look around and let others know who are 55+ and would like to own this little house.   Let me know if you have any questions.  It will come with lots of little extra's!

Just a few more a working shower!

As promised, the following are some "after" pictures.  We have moved everything in and organized most of our things.  We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower.  Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done.  Yuck!

No time to write.  Just enough time to post a few pictures:

and clearly - Monkey is back to normal!
