Yesterday afternoon I sat with forms in hand.
Working through this past year has been a new experience. For 35 years I lived a shared life. The paper trail of taxes over the years showed a time of building a new life, a time of studies, a time of parenthood and lately a time of exploring greater opportunities for giving.
But this year, I am preparing returns on my own. With figures that remind me of God’s grace in my life.
I have monies (that’s what income tax is all about) that have been a blessing to me. I live with comfort.
I have been able to use my monies to help others. I looked over charitable giving and am thankful for the opportunities I have had. I cast my mind to other opportunities to give that will never show up as a charitable deduction on the annual income tax form.
God is good. And I am thankful.
