"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

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God. Philippians 4:6

This is such a wonderful scripture, and today on Thanksgiving, truly was special. The family was together, and I know that as the children continue to get older, I know that this is something that may not always be so. So the Double Nickel Family had a wonderful meal and special time together. We are so thankful for our salvation. Knowing where we are going is truly a blessing, Praise Jesus.

Our 2007 list of things we are thankful for:

~Bill's health, not the best...but he is still with us. We truly have cherished the last 35 months since he had his accident.

~The children's health.

~My health.

~Having a roof over our heads, never missing a meal, and the love of each other.

~New friends in blog-land.

~The wonderful harvest, from our little garden in the city.

~The Burrito Tuesday business and how it has helped through very sparse days.

~I am thankful for finding so many who have received Jesus as their Saviour. I pray that each of us are used in the way the Lord so chooses.

Well as I ramble on here are a few photos of our Thanksgiving
The server laden with our feast.

Our lovely simple 20th Thanksgiving table setting.
