"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

On the Farm

Yesterday we had a lovely young momma and her baby visit us on the farm! Jovahnni is almost a year(two weeks from today) and is adorable! He could not hold back his excitement over seeing all the critters on the farm.
Jovahnni looking at the lambs!


Jovahnni and Obed the ram and Tim the rooster (Fourth and Devina are also in photo)

Jovahnni was hooing...he kept saying HOOO over and over! I think that hoo means AWESOME! I had to tell Bill(who was not home) that I saw the farm anew today. I was able to see the farm in a toddler's eyes~fresh and lovely and wonderful! I cannot relay how totally invigorating it was to share and witness this little one experiencing a farm for the first time!!
