SWMBO! showed me something that seems particularly appropriate at this time of bail-outs and porkulus.

It's from Mini-Moments for Mothers - Forty Bright Spots to make a mother's day by Robert Strand.

Ten Cannots

We are familiar the the TEN COMMANDMENTS . . . let me share with you the following "TEN CANNOTS."

I. YOU CANNOT bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
II. YOU CANNOT help small people by tearing down the big people.
III, YOU CANNOT strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
IV, YOU CANNOT help the poor by destroying the rich.
V. YOU CANNOT keep put of financial trouble by spending more than your income.
VI. YOU CANNOT further brotherhood/sisterhood by inciting class hatred.
VII. YOU CANNOT establish financial security on borrowed money.
VIII. YOU CANNOT build character by taking away initiative and independence.
IX. YOU CANNOT help people by doing for them what they could do for themselves.
X. YOU CANNOT have a meaningful life with god.

The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we are, but in what direction we are moving (O. W. Holmes)

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
(Josh. 1:8)

It's kinda funny, in a sad way. This book was first printed in 1996 and SWMBO's version, the 8th printing, was printed in 2001. It was new when she received it.

To read it without that context, one would think Robert Strand wrote it for today's headliners.

God Bless Ya'll !
