Living the Dream

Does God pay tax? I had an unexpected very high tax bill sent to me with a 10 due notice attached. I neither had the extra funds nor the energy to deal with this. I asked God to take care of it for me. One week later I got a returned call from the auditor, expecting to set up a payment plan if possible, after just a few minutes of talking, the auditor said "You know what? I am just going to write this off, you owe nothing." God really does answer our BOLD prayers! Jennifer J, TN"

I only worked at the paper for one day this week, but it was sure worth it! Hawke's Bay Magpies drew 20-20 against Southland Stags to retain the Ranfurly Shield for the summer, after a last-minute drop-goal by Ihaia West J
