"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

A window

to my life from the March 2013 files.  Not too different this year...
Well Grizzly Adams toned down the beard~a bit. 


This photo was titled I love New Mexico 2.  That has not changed!

I still have to drive through Border Patrol Checkpoints.
Oh how lovely this isn't. 

I haven't been here in a while.  But I see this often for Grizzly gets his hair 
trimmed on base, across from the PX.
 

One of my Bible teaching tools.
Craft sticks, markers, and tape~easy smeasy.
 

My favorite salad from 2013.
Still my favorite salad 2014
Spinach, cabbage, romaine lettuce, celery, carrots, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
Squeeze a fresh orange on it and YUM!

A Mexican smoothie shop in the mall. 
Mangoes, cucumbers, kiwis, jicama, and more~
all the great stuff needed to 
make some wonderful drinks/smoothies.


Finally a small shop/restaurant in El Paso. 
We went the other day and picked up a lovely pineapple and
some Mexican candy!

Time continues to march on yet things are nearly the same.
 
Life is made up of many moments.
It is truly up to us how those moments are viewed.
One can miss out on so much in the busyness of life...or
one can embrace the moments in spite of the busyness.
