Is it any wonder?

Is it any wonder that the lost world views "Christianity" as a joke?

Case in point: The Christian community at large is heralding Miss California as a hero of the faith and I have even heard Christian reporters go as far as to claim she is being persecuted.

Let us look at this: A professing Christian enters a Miss America beauty pageant; signs a contract stating that she has never had nude or semi-nude photo's taken of herself; has breast augmentation surgery paid for by the pageant; then answers a question about her views regarding same-sex marriage with this response:

"I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage,” Prejean answered. “And you know what? I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

First, I might point out that the same statement could be made by a Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Muslim, White Supremest, or anyone who holds traditional moral values.

To make matters worse, we have now discovered that she has posed semi-nude and her response to that expose was, "they are bringing out those photo's to belittle my Christianity".

Young lady--might I suggest that it is YOU who have "belittled" Christianity.

Please don't get me wrong. If a young woman is stupid enough to lower herself to be paraded around like cattle at an auction and to undergo an elective surgery to make her breasts larger at the rip old age of 21; that is entirely her business to do so. To drag the precious name of Christ into this arena should be unimaginable for anyone who cares one bit about His Glory and His honor.


Her stand on same-sex marriage does not make her an honorable ambassador of Christ and for the Christian community to herald this woman as a hero of the faith for taking a stand on same-sex marriage is simply feeding into the world's misconception of what Christianity truly is.

Next time you are tempted to make someone out to be a poster child for Christianity try to first imagine them saying, "Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ."
1 Corinthians 11

So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

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 "…

Just a few more projects...like 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!
