"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

Sometimes Life Takes Over


I have been missing from Blogland due to unplanned and planned events.

First~computer issues. If it is not something, I suppose it is another applies here.

Second~the kids (correction young adults) continue to take steps forward in life...which is exciting and time consuming.

Third~the farm. Each year takes us closer to what we foresaw when we moved to a sorry piece of land overlooked for several years by many. That sorry piece of land will never be called sorry ever again. It is my corner, my piece of America that holds all that encapsulates what I value in the American Dream. Oh and it is NOT free, and the price has been the sweatequity of every member of the family.

And with this I also have had the heaviness of heart with mixed emotions upon surgery my sweetie will have this week. It has been something we have prayed about and know is what can make life better but with surgery is of course the bottom line in life- it comes risks. I have been failing miserably trying to carry myself strong and be supportive. I love my husband far more than I could ever adequately express and cannot imagine life without him. He is who I think of when I laugh, when I cry, when I think of something, when I see an amazing sight or when I just wish to sit alone with him near me. Who would think it? I know when I married I was raised to be my own person...be independent and strong and never really need a man. Sigh, what a sad way to raise women. The fulfillment and joy I have experienced for these past 23 years reaches beyond measure and had I given in to the bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan nonsense I would have missed out on the Universe so I could have the Earth.

I pray for my readers if they have a moment to pray for my Bill. Pray for the surgeon's and staff that work on him, and pray for our family. The power of prayer is magnificent. It is power in unity.

oh and in case I haven't shared in a while-I live and am comforted by Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Tower of teens...Second on far right, Third is second from left.

Not related to post, I just like the photo.

Hello World! I arrived on the 15th of February around 1 am.

I think the new kid on the block looks a bit like Bambi, but this is a girl, so perhaps...Flower?
Oldies but still goodies...No name male, and Petra! I guess while before we sell the male he could be named. Any ideas? He has the most beautiful blue eyes ever!
