Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong.
It is amazing what you learn from Sunday School songs. This song is in my heart today. Today was the day that I set aside for taxes. I hate taxes, and this year with so many different things to do, I was not going to do them myself.
I made an appointment with a person who specializes in estate taxes. A few months ago I had done some research into what I would have to do this year to take care of my Mother's taxes and her estate taxes, as well as my own. Even though I have always done my own taxes, I decided that I didn't want the headache, so I hired the job out. Thank God I did!
Several months before my Mother died she had decided to put me on all of her accounts. She did this knowing that if something happened I would be able to still use her account to pay her bills and help out with David and Brandon. For a while she put it off, but thankfully she finally did it.
This small thing of transferring things to someone else name became a small miracle today- tax day. Apparently because we did this, my mother had no legal estate. Everything simply passed from 'joint' to individual. Needless to say, I was as high as kit when we discovered that we would not be paying extra taxes. This small act has saved our family in a very big way. THANK YOU JESUS!
I only had to do my Mother's personal taxes- which 'she' still had to pay even though she was dead- and my own. I was elated. It came home to me again how bad things can happen to you- sometimes the worst situations you can imagine- but when God is in control there will always be a lily in the valley, a bright and morning star, a strong tower, and so much more.
God is good... all the time, and all the time... He is good.
