"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

A Glimpse

Hanging on my wall

Three baskets.
Each one bought by my husband at a different time.
Each one bought for me because he knows I love them.

Three baskets that give a glimpse to the heart of a man that loves his wife.
Three baskets that are so simple yet speak the eloquent words of the finest poet.
Three baskets that are more aromatic than the most expensive bouquet of flowers.

Oftentimes we miss out on life because we expect something and then are blinded by our expectations. Perhaps it is time to look around once more.

I am sharing this with the 'on my mind' theme hosted by Rhonda Jean of Down To Earth.
