"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 Playground

This is the little ram playing on top of the sheep barn.  The lambs love skipping and jumping off of this, as we have a ramp to the top.

 Laura the lamb playing in the trough! Note the ramp behind her...as the lambs use this to climb.

Here a lamb is on the top...
And here he is sliding down the ramp!
 I would never have believed that the lambs would do this, but they run up and then slide down many times a day, as well as skipping and jumping off the top!
The newest kids on the playground jump from the stumps to the tires, then loop and run through the tires! 

Life on the farm for the wee critters is simple~play hard, sleep, eat, then repeat.

You my friend with the life on the farm, are blessed abundantly from on High so many truths in God's Word can be manifested through the natural experiences of your life on the farm....Romans 1:20 ...

I would be hopeless as a farmer. Every furry and feathered thing would become my pet, with a particular weakness for goats and chickens.

I didn't realize sheep were so playful as my Daisy is pretty mellow. I would be entertained for hours (this coming from the lady who sits watching chickens peck the ground).

My package arrived....thank you, thank you!! :)
