Revelation?

I realize that (at times) I can be too analytical. And everyone who knows me just said, "At times?" I also happen to love music. There is a contemporary Christian song by Third Day called Revelation, and whenever I happen to have the radio on in the car and that song comes on, I crank it up because I love the music. But, the lyrics bother me. That is the overly analytical side of me coming out. The singer is asking for Revelation "Give me Revelation" and I just cringe because 1) He has given us His revelation (The Word of God) and it is the best and most complete revelation that we need if we would simply spend time reading it; and 2) There is a dangerous false teaching in the church that makes people think that God can reveal things to them personally that are even contrary to His Word; i.e. "new revelation".

So, I decided to write different lyrics for the song so that when it comes on I can enjoy it 100%--both the music and the words. I have copied my new and revised lyrics below for anyone else who may understand how I feel in this regard. I was tempted to provide a commentary on each line of the original lyrics; but will spare my readers--this time (smiling). Here is are three lines of the original text followed by the new lyrics in paragraphs:

"I don’t know where I can turn"
(Now I know where TO turn)

"Tell me when will I learn"
(Now I know I WILL learn)

"Won’t You show me where I need to go"
(Won’t You grow me where I need to grow)

Anyway have fun. Try singing these words along with the song.

My life…..had led me down a road of only hurt’n
And I was all alone with sin unspoken
But, You showed me the way,
and now I have a faith that’s strong

‘Bout time, I know that you are holding all the answers
No longer without hope, no backward glances
Down roads that never seemed,
To be the ones to bring me home.

Your Word is Revelation
It tells me what is true
Cause through it I can find the Way
The Way that leads to You
The Truth is only found there
My heart and soul it moves
Your Word is Revelation
O’ nothin else will do
I’m nothing without You

Your Word…….. now leads me down a path that’s straight, not winding
Through every verse and page I’m always finding
You’ve saved me from all sin
You tell me that Your love will never end

Your Word is Revelation
It tells me what is true
Cause through it I can find the Way
The Way that leads to You
The Truth is only found there
My heart and soul it moves
Your Word is Revelation
O’ nothin else will do
I’m nothing without You

Now I know where TO turn
Now I know I WILL learn
Won’t You grow me where I need to grow
Oh oh
I will follow Your lead
I know that it’s the only way that I will never roam.

Your Word is Revelation
It tells me what is true
Cause through it I can find the Way
The Way that leads to You
The Truth is only found there
My heart and soul it moves
Your Word is Revelation
O’ nothin else will do
I’m nothing without You

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 "…

Custom Doll Trunk with Doll and tons of clothes and accessories now available!

This took forever!  After transforming the 24 inch Bratz Dolls into "Just K.I.D.S" as part of the campaign to help rescue kids trapped in the sex trafficking industry, I got the crazy idea to convert a vintage suitcase into a doll trunk.  After making the inside compartments and decoupaging and hand painting the entire outside of the suitcase (both front and back) the set is now complete and up for auction on Ebay.





















Leave a comment if you want to bid on this amazing doll trunk.  You even get to pick which doll you want to be included.
