"When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration
And then proclaim, "My God, how great thou art!"
-How Great Thou Art
I feel peaceful when I sing or listen to this song. The Home Free version is my all-time favorite ❤ I was so stunned when I first heard it and I fell in love with them 😆
Talking with L today reminded me of a thought I have had. Perhaps since the summer vacation camp when I was a first grader, or since we started taking charge of the chorus and new members, I've been wondering.
Sometimes I felt that everyone wasn't on the same page.
Although we were a team, everyone was there for different reasons. Some people stayed because they truly loved music. Some stayed because they liked being with each other and felt loved. Some stayed because their ability was recognized and they felt important.
There were so many reasons. No wonder why everyone thought differently and made varying degrees of contributions. People are not the same and have different values. We just can't get everyone to work equally hard because the definition of being good enough varies from person to person.
It's a sad fact but it can't be helped. I once struggled with this and I just couldn't understand.
But gradually I accepted it. I might still have doubts, but as long as we are happy being with each other, achieve our goals, share the precious times and memories, and sing together, all the reasons why don't seem to matter that much.
You can do it.

In One Chart: Where Do State Tax Revenues Come From🤔⠀⠀
The United States federal progressive income tax dates back over 100 years, to the Revenue Act of 1913. Back then, the U.S. received most of its tax revenues from tariffs. Many states have followed the federal government’s lead in collecting a progressive state tax income. ⠀⠀
Top 5 Tax Revenue Sources for State Governments⠀⠀
1. Income taxes: $440.3B (42.7% of total tax revenues)⠀
2. General sales taxes: $317.4B (30.8% of total tax revenues)⠀
3. Selective sales taxes: $165B (16% of total tax revenues)⠀
4. License taxes: $57.4B (5.6% of total tax revenues)⠀
5. Property taxes: $20.1B (1.95% of total tax revenues)⠀
With wages and purchasing power barely budging in years, and a federal debt that has risen to $23 trillion, from $13 trillion in 2010, many are calling for a reconsideration of how the government collects revenue. The Treasury is on pace to borrow more than $1 trillion during the current fiscal year — what sources are available to close the gap ⠀⠀
A particularly aggressive strategy to drive revenues from the wealthiest individual comes from Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, whose proposed wealth tax would set a 2% annual tax on wealth over $50 million and a 6% tax on wealth over $1 billion. 💲💲💲⠀⠀
Do you support the Warren wealth tax plan Why or why not What other ways could the federal government close the spending gap⠀⠀
