Six Word Saturday



CREDIT CARD DEBT IS GONE FOREVER!!!

This past week Brett and I were able to finally pay off the last of our credit card debt!!! We didn't have a ton, but we did have some medical bills from when we had to put our dog down and her prior treatment. We also had balance transferred Brett's car loan onto a card, as well as bought some other expenses But that is all paid off now!! It feels great! Sure, it would be nice to have a large savings account but credit card debt just feels so icky and I hate making monthly payments on interest.

This is an exciting step towards becoming debt free for our family. Now we just have my van loan and our house for monthly debts! We are working towards me being able to stay home when our next baby is born and eliminating debt is a huge part of that happening. I have been working hard and so has Brett. Dave Ramsey always says, "Work like no one else, so later you can really work like no one else. ...." I think that it is so easy to get caught up in the NOW and not think of the future. I am over debt!! Having nice things is great but only when YOU own them and not the credit card company!

Thank you Lord for your provision!!

Woohoo, guys! That's awesome! Being debt free really is all it's cracked up to be, in my opinion. Our mortgage is 50% paid for, and we have one vehicle loan. God has been making ways even when we can't see them. It's wonderful!
