Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Taxes

Need I say more?


Well, I will!


Hubby and I did our annual sit down, go through stacks of receipts, bank statements, you know the drill! Every year we say we are going to do better, but guess what....WE NEVER DO!!!! We vowed AGAIN, that this year is going to be different. Yeah right:) He said he likes it this way.......WHY WOULD ANYBODY WANT TO TORTURE THEMSELVES THIS WAY? We do, apparently. It was a task that couldn't be put off any longer......seeing that our tax appt. was THIS MORNING! Love you....dear;)



As we all make the annual pilgrimage to the infamous tax office or if your the savvy kind and can do it yourself, let's keep in mind that Jesus befriended the "tax collectors" and left in His Word from Matthew 22:19-21 (KJV), "Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."



I'm thankful and feel blessed to live in such a wonderful country. Even though I don't always agree on the amount of taxes that are taken and what they are being spent for. I will do my civil duty: vote and pay taxes!!




Now hand over heart and repeat after me:

I Pledge Allegiance

To the Flag

Of the United States of America

And to the Republic

For Which it Stands

One Nation

Under God,

Indivisible,

With Liberty

And Justice

For All

God Bless America!

I feel better now:)

Thanks for the reminder! (I think, ha). Sorry, but I had to laugh about your posting ahead. I'm a new blogger too and that happened to me also! :) I just learn as I go!
