Yesterday I met with our CPA to file our 2022 taxes. So. Not. Fun!
My husband Ray and I now owe even more taxes than the year before. I’m looking to Jehovah Jireh our Provider.
God provided a ram for Abraham to sacrifice to God instead of his beloved, precious son Isaac. God told Abraham to kill Isaac to test Abraham’s faith in Him. When God saw that Abraham was going to obey, not even withholding from God his son who he waited years into his old age to have and who he greatly loved, God stopped Abraham.
“Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.” (Genesis 22:13, NKJV)
I’m also praying for a payment plan with the IRS to pay the taxes that we owe. Now that we’re into the second quarter of 2023, I’m making other goals as well. Are you?
To summarize them, my new goals are hope, health, and happiness.
Beth Jones podcasting
It’s been a stressful couple of months lately with lots of techie issues with our internet service, my laptop, my podcast, and my iPhone. You can listen in here at my new podcast on what’s been happening lately and to hear about the miracle God did with thousands of my phone pics and videos!
I give Jesus Christ all the glory for this and am so happy that God saved them for me! He is a good Father!

Our phones were messing up, so Ray and I upgraded both our phones to the newest ones and we even got a better plan that was a little less expensive. Ray also bought more iCloud memory for my phone, so I won’t run out of space to store my pics and videos.
While my family thinks I take a ridiculous amount of pictures, two of the [young] tech staff at the phone company told me they had just as many, and more! Do you take lots of pics and videos on your phone? Basically, our phones have become our digital photo albums and scrapbooks.
Me with my chips and salsa fix
My family and my friends know that I LOVE chips and salsa ~ it’s an addiction! I also love Mexican food, encouraging people to fulfill their purpose and to dream big dreams!
I have a quote that I often say, “Dream big because we serve a big God!”
What is your big dream? You and I are in good company as dreamers with Joseph the Dreamer in the Bible. It’s one of my favorite stories, and I relate a lot to Joseph!
You have probably heard of the story of Joseph, but if you haven’t, it’s found in Genesis Chapters 37 – 50.
I’m going to speak about Joseph and why you haven’t seen your dream come to pass yet (and the #1 ingredient for seeing it come true!) at my upcoming live and virtual event, Mex and Chillaxing: Grab your dream & a taco!
