"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 Week in a Nutshell

Since we celebrated Thanksgiving early we are freeish Thursday.  Now I am waking up very early and making 20 lbs of mashed potatoes, and 60 deviled eggs for a community shelter/church that is hosting Thanksgiving for those in need.  I have never done something like this before and I am happy that our plans made this possible.

Monday~ I put final touches on centerpieces for the reception.  I hemmed clothing for the other daughter-in-law to be, as well as Fourth.

Tuesday~ I painted the signs for the chairs for the special couple.
I also took down Thanksgiving decor and put up Hanukkah decorations.
This is from last year...I will take a few for this year!
I went to town with Fourth as she worked.  I visited with her boss, then ran around town finalizing a few more things for wedding. I did something I have not done in many years.   I bought myself something nicety nice for the wedding.  Oh...and shoes and a purse~new.  I honestly don't know when I have done that last.  I ran to another store to pick up a shirt and tie for Second as he has been working so much.   I met with the lovely to be bride and confirmed things I had reserved for Friday pickup.  I went to the grocery and did something else I haven't done in a while.  I bought frozen rolls, as I have so much going on, I do not think I have time to make 60 rolls for the reception.  Oh and while at the grocery, I ran into an old friend.  It was so nice as we talked Bible in the produce section for so long.   My hurry and worries faded as my final stop in town was closed with calming talk!

Wednesday~I am cleaning the house.  It looks like I am preparing for a wedding!!  Bill is picking up the tux for Third, bringing boxes for me to transport table decor, making sure Second's dress pants are ready to go(or he will bring them home for me),  and spending his final day of work before the holiday.   Lighting the first candle of Hanukkah.

Thursday~waking before farmer's hours.  Peeling a ton of potatoes.  Peeling a bunch of eggs.  Delivering and helping with food.  Meeting with Second and Fourth for something fun.  Relaxing at home.  Lighting the second candle of Hanukkah.

Friday~ Picking up a few items for reception already reserved.  Not in the bustle of Black Friday shopping as it is a business far from the chaotic stores.   Coming home.  Relaxing with Bill and Fourth.  First and his sweetie are stopping by. Lighting the third candle of Hanukkah.

Saturday~a day of rest.  Enjoying family.  Sabbath meeting in evening.  Lighting fourth candle of Hanukkah. 

Sunday~ waking early starting food for reception.  Running to town to set up reception.   Coming home picking up food, dressing, and going to WEDDING!  Having a lovely day.  Lighting fifth candle of Hanukkah.

Well that's the week in a nutshell.  Wait until the following week!!  If this week begins a new season in our lives,  you will be amazed at what the next week brings.  It's so powerful to realize that yes, indeed
 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
 Ecclesiastes 3:1

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
