On such a Glorious day...

My hopes were high, as I awoke
On such a Glorious day--
Your Victory to celebrate
The Truth, The Life, The Way!

I looked around with hope to find
A light, a spark, a glimmer
But all I saw were lifeless forms
O’ could it get much dimmer?

Apathy has filled Your house;
But, I will worship You
Blank, bored faces and empty stares—
In almost every pew.

I often wonder, “Why do they come?”
“Why do they sit for an hour?
Is it because they like the form of God
But have never felt Your power?

Why do you come? Why not stay home?
Is this a wasted hour?
What should be sweet, to your soul
Just seems to leave you sour.

Protect me from the awful plague
Don’t let my heart succumb
The world, the flesh, the dull routine
Is that what makes them numb?

Forgive me Lord, if I am wrong
Dead bones is all I see.
O’ breath Your life into those bones
And set the captives free.

Apathy has filled Your house;
O’ shake it with Your might
So when we gather in Your Name
There is Joy, and Love and Light.

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!

Living Room will come with the floor to ceiling oak wall unit, the Faux Fireplace Heater, the floor lamp, and the large framed mirror.

Kitchen includes a new refrigerator, new Range Top, microwave, toaster oven, and a wave oven.  If you want the built in desk that can also be arran…

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!
