"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

the sunflowers that the men's recovery home grew took judges choice award!!  They earned a grand prize ribbon and a first place ribbon for the sunflowers!

In addition, they received I believe three more first place ribbons and three second place ribbons!

I am very happy for them, and I was trying to find the newspaper article to share but it is not posted yet.  I put Bill's number as the point of contact~and when the flower show judge called Bill~immediately Bill called the head of the recovery home!  Let's just say that this was a boost for the entire recovery house.

I will add photos soon!
