"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

I Believe

That one can re-purpose old curtains into a braided rug.
I believe that clothes dried on a clothesline smell amazing.
I believe that a woman that does not know how to sew can make
her own skirts.

I believe teaching children to work alongside you should be done
from the time they are small.
I believe that love should be shared every single day.

I believe that work doesn't always have to be tedious.
I believe that the simple life and feeding animals is priceless.
I believe that a family should work together as the wood brought home 
warms everyone.
I believe that cooking food for your loved ones isn't a job but 
something to take pleasure in.
I believe that teaching children to work while working with
them at an apple farm creates habits that will last a lifetime.
I believe that learning that all life has value and respecting it 
all the while providing for the family is important.
I believe that when an opportunity to rest is offered that one should
take it.  Hard work earns one rest.

 I believe sometimes things happen. 
 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, 
to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 
I believe. 

I believe that one need not have the newest gadgets or even the 
exact ping pong table to enjoy a game of ping pong.  I believe
necessity is indeed the mother of invention.
I believe that traditions of the annual photo aren't easy to maintain
but are precious memories to look back upon and see the changes 
of all.  I believe the photo triggers memories as well thinking
upon all the outtakes each year required to get the final photo!
I believe that little girls should remain little girls as long as possible.
Innocence and childhood are not hand and hand in this world. I 
believe that we should do everything possible to ensure that our children
and their childhood innocence is protected-and a good way is by turning
off the television, game systems, cell phones and such.
I believe that young men should stand and serve.  I believe
that character, honor, integrity and patriotism are traits that 
we need to grant to those that will be fathers to the next generation.

 Although this is not the first image I know it is the most important. 
I believe that the Bible is the word of the Creator,
and that life is because of Him.  I believe that the 
basic instructions before leaving earth are indeed in the 
Bible and that I should study to show myself approved.
2 Timothy 2:15

I believe that a gift from a child can never be given
a monetary value.  I believe that this gift is 
priceless in so many ways. 

I believe that making a child and their childhood is through
simple things most often not requiring anything but your 
time, love and willingness.
I believe that nearly 28 years later I feel as newly married as I did
in 1988.  I believe that I do feel as in love or more in love now and
I am ever so thankful for getting the wrong belts put on the car.
I believe that this young couple had faith even before they understood it
and that all because of this they are the parents of four seven(with all the daughters-in-law)
and grandparents of two.  All~ Because.
I believe in happily ever after.  I believe in this not because it is a mushy love story every day. No.  I believe in happily ever after because with Bill, we rolled up our sleeves and united to walk through everything life has given us.  I believe that joy is a choice.  I believe that we can choose to be miserable or choose to be happy.  I believe that after working at it for several weeks it becomes a habit and then joy is.  

I believe.
