"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

Come Quickly Spring

Come quickly spring, we need your lovely flowers to brighten our wreaths!

Come quickly spring, we need you awaken and green your branches!

Come quickly spring, I have worked hard this winter.

Come quickly spring, so we can be harvested!

Come quickly spring, so the wood can go back to the woodpile, and the dried desert flowers can be refilled with blooming flowers.

Come quickly spring, so I can go back to my old job, of watering lovely gardens!

Friends, I am ready for the color of the desert to return. To many the desert always seems drab and gray, as this post seems to give the impression. Even in the desert southwest where temperatures were in the high 70's yesterday we long for the change and the blooming of the desert that spring brings!
