"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

Thankful

Thankful post part 1.

I am thankful for the Word of God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, 
and the Word was God.
John 1:1 
For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.
Psalm 119:89 

I am thankful that my country still believes this. 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. 
Bill of Rights
1st Amendment

I am thankful for this young couple.  

They learned how to become one.  It wasn't always easy.
But it has made all the difference that these two decided to become one.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall
 cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Genesis 2:24
