After 15 years of arm wrestling, my community came together on a new fire hall project. To rehash. what a fabulous thing. A testament to what can be done by a community that has resolve, patience, and principle. It is not easy to reject the USDA path of fortune. But look what was accomplished: 1) we have proven that a community can fund municipal projects locally. 2) We have not burdened our children with the debt of a 40 year mortgage. Many of us wouldn’t be alive upon payoff. 3) We rejected plans for 2M and 1.5M fire hall and are receiving a larger building for almost half the price. No federal shenanigans attached. 4) We are borrowing money on a term of 15 years from a local bank. 5) there was NO millage required. 6) We have the opportunity for some local contractors to work at home. 7) we are all emboldened and proud that we are doing this in house. It is no small compliment to all involved. Thank you to the folks that stuck with this and made it happen, and Thank you to the folks on the fire team that are gifted with the desire to go out in the worst situations at all or any hour with the attempt at saving lives and property. It’s a good day.

I just finished Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott, I know… how did I miss this read in my life. I loved the book and the simplicity of the time. The story is of four young sisters living in poverty, living each day as if it was the greatest gift from God.
As the Sisters in the book struggle through their own personal struggles, they rely on God for their strength. These women don’t collapse under the weight of their problems, they strengthen the foundations of their principles. This is the answer to the countless problems in our country, “with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” The Declaration of Independence.
Never give up no matter what comes at you in life. Pray God will give you the strength. Our God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Moses, Jonah, and Paul! Our God created everything in this earth. He is our God and He sent His own Son, to be our Savior, if we choose to accept Him. He is the same God we pray to, He is the same God who hears our cries. Why are you afraid of mortal man? Stand up! Let’s restore this country!
So I was watching the movie “A Bug’s Life” last night and I was blown away with this grasshopper’s speech.
Wow! It is amazing the similarities of our current politics to the movie. We, the ants, bring our hard earned money to the politicians. Our money (seeds) are wasted by politicians, who know we outnumber them.
What can we do?
Stand up! Lock arms and let’s start the RESTORATION of our country. Newsflash! We are a lot bigger and smarter than ants. So what are you afraid of? Get to work and save our country before the grasshoppers eat all our food!
