"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

2015ish in Review



It's that time of year again. A time to look back over the year and reminiscence about events that happened.  I have captured a few photos from over the years-that came from the month listed to share the year.


January
Bill and Fourth looking well hat-tacular! 

February
Love notes-quite typical for the farmer and his wife.

March

Yep.  March...
April



 
And April...

May
 June
Best b-day cake ever!

July
Exact location of the Double Nickel. 

August 


Marriage

27 years and counting
September


Character is from the inside.

October
 
I have no words...but the snake count this year was 
ughhhhhhh!
November 
 
 8 of the 9 in the ever expanding goof troop!


December
Fashion is still very important to me.





Now I must confess that 2015 was an incredible year.  It was like 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014... all because these years passed by with my best friend, my handsome goof, the father of my children, and my love Bill~
but 2015 did drastically change how I see life~


All because of two grandsons.






Life is different and I am not sure if I can put it in words what I mean.
In a corny way, I feel as though my parents live on through the grandsons.  I feel
as though my dad lives on even though he never even saw me as a baby.  For me, I
am overwhelmed with an emotion I cannot describe.  I will close with this, I am thankful for
2015 because Bill and I are sharing a new stage of our lives.  I am a happy Gigi(my grandma name-combing maiden name and married name initials- GG) and love the life I have thus far
lived.

May 2016 be a year where we walk in the ways our Creator wants us to and love like our
life may end in a moment.  May 2016 be a year where we grant forgiveness as much as when we accept compliments.   May 2016 be a year of awakening and of awareness of the Hope that Our Saviour has granted.

Happy 2016 to all!
