"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

Nine Thousand One Hundred and Twenty Five Days

holy moley!!  Bill and I have been together for almost 9,125 days  as a married couple! 

Now here's a few more numbers.

How many days it took after Bill and I met for him to propose?  2  yep.  I still wonder what took him so long.

How many days we waited until we married?  about 42ish...

Sometimes one must leap to live the life they are destined to live.  

Many musicians have written songs about love and soul mates...

all the while
Bill and I have lived it.

That was fast!

Obviously, God prepared you for one another, and in the last 25 years you've kept saying "yes" to each other!

God's Blessing continue to flow down on you and your children and their marriages and children and their's and so on!

Deanna-fast and sure. Well probably too young to realize but I look back and appreciate Romans 8:28!

Susan-oh so true and that is going to be part of an upcoming August post using Gen 2:24 coupled with Matt19:5, Ephesians 5:22-6:4, and Mark 10 6-10!
