Yep, it's that time of year again. It's time to complete the appropriate forms and file the....TAXES -- both federal and state. Some of you may be procrastinators. You know the type, scrambling at the very end to get them completed and then rushing to the post office late on April 15.
Marc's not one to do that (procrastinate). This past weekend, he completed both our federal and state income taxes. They were filed online last night. DONE!!!! Ah...while we don't like to pay taxes and filing income taxes each year is a bit of a pain, we do it because we obey our government.
Here's a photo of Marc diligently working on our income tax returns.
Income tax filing time is when many Americans are tempted to and often give into cheat. While, in some cases, it would be easy to do and very tempting if it would be in one's favor, it is incrediblydishonest.
Not that I would remotely imply that any of you reading this blog post would cheat, but I would like to post these following two verses. Hopefully, these will help somebody out there.
The Lord detests lying lips, but He delights in men who are truthful. Proverbs 12:22
He whose walk is upright fears the Lord, but he whose ways are devious despises Him. Proverbs 14:2
On a different note, a Luke note, he has recently (within the last couple of days) gotten to where he can sit up on his own without support. While he still is a bit wobbly and occasionally still does some face plants, he is doing very well. Here's a photo of him from this evening, red cheeks and all (he tends to get red cheeks when he's tired). Pardon the bib -- I forgot to take it off of him.
Until next time....
