Tax Day!

Romans 13: 6
" This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. "

I never understood why some people hated tax day until the years that my family owed taxes.  Let me tell you, we waited until the last possible second to file them. And, talk about stress! Fortunately, we have not been in that situation for a number of years.  My husband actually is a public servant, so the taxes that we pay help to support him and those in positions like his.  We don't just need to support them with our finances. We need to support them with prayer. Pray for those who serve us as law makers, those who represent us in the government, and most especially those who serve and protect us in law enforcement, in the military, and in fire and rescue services; putting their own lives in peril. Thank you for paying your taxes.

Are you getting a tax refund this year? What fun thing are you doing with your refund? New clothes, new furniture, a renovation? Comment below and let me know (I need to live vicariously through you!). Now please go and file your taxes...Momma needs a new pair of shoes!

Paying taxes doesn't just support local law makers. Remember, it helps support those who serve and protect!
