"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

Thankful post part 2.

I am thankful for my children.  Bill and I wanted  8 children.  We could only have 4.  The four pregnancies and deliveries were of the top hardships in our marriage.  I had First 6 weeks premature, Third 8 weeks premature, and Fourth 10 weeks premature.  My pregnancies included long hospital stays, flight for life, and finally I nearly died during delivery with Fourth.   I was sad I could not have any more children.  I honestly carried that a long time, and then a few years ago as the kids began to date I looked to the children and told Bill, "we will have 8 children, but some will join us because of the 4!" 

Psalm 127: 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Second and his wife.
 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.  2 Timothy 2:1

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28

Third and his wife

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.  1 Peter 2:2

And that from a child though hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  2 Timothy 3:15

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest  by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Deuteronomy 6:7

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6

I am thankful for my children and pray that they walk in His ways always. 

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good.  2 Thessalonians 5:21

Be sober and diligent; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8
