Yours Truly

The creator of this world, the Big G as my son would say, created me to create. When I was (not so much) younger, I use to wish I was made to be a brilliant doctor, or something more useful. But I've come to learn that being who I am, brings joy to God; and who am I, that I should question Him, my creator? Do my creations question me?

I live in Cedarburg, WI with my 1st husband (wink, only husband) and have been married since 1986. We have two children, a daughter born in 1988 and a son born in 1991, two dogs (Skye and Tucker) and a rabbit (Shamrock). The critters may be the subject of some interesting photo shoots I hope to put together soon.

I'm a online shop owner with Etsy ( and love photography among other things, such as knitting, gardening and hanging out with friends.

With joy,
Lisa Wood

Facing Hard Circumstances?: How God can use It for Good
The link above is to the testimony Patrick and I gave at the end of October 2010 after I lost my job and Patrick sick and unable to work.

Although things are not perfect 
Because of trial or pain Continue in thanksgiving 
Do not begin to blame Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow God is forever able Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love Joy would cease to be Keep thanking Him for all the things Love imparts to thee Move out of "Camp Complaining"No weapon that is known  
On earth can yield the power Praise can do alone Quit looking at the future  
Redeem the time at hand Start every day with worship 
To "thank" is a command Until we see Him coming 
Victorious in the sky  We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high  
Yes, they'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but..
Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

Unfolding the rosebud

It is only a tiny Rosebud,
a flower of GOD'S design;
but I can not unfold the Petals
with these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly;
when in my hands they fold and die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
this flower of GOD'S design,
then how can I think I have wisdom
to unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in Him for His leading
each moment of every day.
I will look to Him for guidance
each step of the pilgrim way.
The pathway, that lies before me,
only my Heavenly Father knows
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
just as He unfolds the Rose.
