"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Dear Blog

I am sorry I have not spent more time here.  Well more time posting, as I have written a good deal and then just saved the post in the drafts.  Too many things going on and my world is in a period of readjustment.

I will return to a more scheduled blogging pattern, but for now I will play catch up over the next few posts.
I thought I would close with a photo from the desktop.  I have no idea who took it but it gave me such a smile.  Never underestimate those that think differently than you.  You may not get why they do things the way they do, but that does not mean that they won't accomplish things.

Happy Mother's Day

To my mother Dee 1938-2011, and to Bill's mom Silvina.  We are the people we are because of you.
Oh and the wee ones in the photos? Bill and I!

To the man that changed my name to Mom...thank you as it has been a wonderful life all because of that name change.

I went to Albuquerque yesterday

and as I was looking for a street, I remembered this meme and I began to laugh.  In the city, in heavy traffic.  It was so funny to think about how things were before our phone became everything.

The Wise Man


Matthew 7:21-27
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

We must understand that everything in the New Testament must be built upon the Old Testament.  
Everything.

Sometimes

life is not easy.

Sometimes you feel gated.

And even the majestic views seem dull.

Sometimes.
You see, with ups there must be downs.  

Dear Delta Airlines

ENOUGH.
What happened this this young family is WRONG.



Delta is full of bs.  They rewrite rules depending on the situation...as the family flew on Delta one way, but when the flight is overbooked(not this man's problem), it is against the rules for the child to be in the carseat. The airline took his money knowing all the details of the people~as we live in a post 9-11 world, and they sold the ticket to the man.

ENOUGH.
I am really sick and tired of living in a world where truth and rules are defined in the moment...instead of having Truth which allows for all to function.

An apology is not enough.  If it is against FAA rules and regulations for the child to be in a carseat in an independent seat, and the airline took the money twice, once on the way there, and once on the return~then Delta should also be charged by the FAA~I know, I know, nothing will happen.

If we as a nation stopped flying Delta for 7 days they would start serving the people again instead of being a bully company that overbooks and forces the customer to be punished.

Bee-u-tiful Day on the Farm

Last Sunday we had an enormous turnout to the farm.

Usually just the kids that aren't working and their loves
show up.  Last Sunday a good deal of buzz was going on
about the farm. 

Pretty awesome isn't it?
Oh and they were not aggressive and remained for three days.
