"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

Friday Night Gathering

We gathered together Friday night to celebrate Third's birthday. 
At times I am so shocked at how fast time passes.  This is the first photo of Third and his brothers after he came home from the Kinder clinic (Kind of like NICU in Germany). 
Here was Third Friday night.  I made a tank convoy cake.
I know he is a married man with a child, but he is still my bubboo and I was making light of the very serious occupation he has enlisted in.  Yep, those are plastic army guys behind the tanks.  For the gun(or whatever it is called) on the tank, I cut a chopstick.  

To Third: Oh dad and I love you so much.  It was so nice to gather and BBQ with the entire family as we visited, laughed, and celebrated another wonderful year with you among us. 
Be strong, walk with the LORD, and never forget that your wife and son are a blessing.
Love you oodles and oodles,
Dad and Mom!
