"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

Today's Post Will Not be Given an Official Title

Have you ever sat and reflected upon the events unfolding around you, whether in the news or in your life and said, Holy Smokes?

I've been saying Holy Smokes a good deal lately.

At times I have even questioned if I have heard something correctly.  Things seem so insanely surreal that it is hard to process.  I have for the past week or two allowed events to consume me.  I am not proud of this, but it is life.

Today, I shall stop.  I cannot change the nonsense of the news.
I cannot stop the events of the world.
I cannot even stop those that I love behaving one way or another.

I can give things over to the Creator, pray, fast, and study His word.  I can be the person that I am and continuing living the simple life on a little corner of the world called the Double Nickel.
