"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

My weekend

was lovely.
Bill and I went to an appointment for him on Friday and then we enjoyed the rest of the day being together.

We went to church on Saturday and Bill presented a very interesting Bible lesson on Psalm 103.
Sweet Sofia and her family came to church and then we had them out to the farm.  I am so thankful that Sofia is recovering so well and she as well as her sisters are so kind and sweet~Fred and Sharon you are doing a wonderful job!

Sunday we woke up and repaired the sheep pen, took out a mesquite bush, and repurposed an old bench into a new and improved feeding trough.  Then Fourth, Bill and I went up the mountain and picked up our horse trailer (we had loaned it to a friend), and hitched it up and picked up four ewes from a small farm north of Alamogordo. 

Sunday ended with a gathering of the family at Second's house.  The only one that could not make it was Third who was at work, so at the end of the gathering, Second made a plate for Third, and Bill and I delivered it to him at work.
Grandest of grands! Third's son on left, Second's on the right.

The weekend was lovely.  I repeat myself because when Bill and I have an opportunity to visit with all of our kids~life is amazing.  When we get to visit with all our grands~life is amazing.  When we all visit together~and cousins play and giggle with each other~life is lovely, and I am ever so thankful.
