"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

September and we

celebrated our anniversary.  Bill's mom passed away on our anniversary and we changed plans.  Last Sunday, we drove up to the mountains and had a simple anniversary lunch, dance and getaway.  It has been needed as the weeks before Bill's mom passed and since have been emotionally filled.  Quick prayer request for Bill's dad, he is having some pretty serious health concerns, so if you have prayer time, we would love prayers for him.

Here are the photos from our 29th Anniversary...

We had a picnic in the mountains.

Very humble, yet the company was amazing.
We danced for a bit and to take a pic with our height differences
was hard. My attempts were only of Bill's shirt, his~ he had to lean!

Then for a bit of time where we both could just take a breath and not think
about the worries down the mountain, Bill read for a bit.
and I painted.  

Not quite done but here is what it is looking like.

More updates and postings coming.  No new grands yet, although one is due sooooon and the other in two months.  We are very excited.  

Thanks for the emails and such and life happens.
