Where Will we be in Five Years?

I haven’t written a blog in quite sometime; here is a long overdue one. I am so glad the sun is finally shining.

I am in the process of learning a new job. It seems to be going well for the most part. There are a few confusing things, but hopefully it won’t be too long before I start to understand.
I was just thinking about a few things yesterday...

First, how very awe inspiring to see a tiny snowflake stuck on your windshield that is still in it’s perfect, beautiful, "star like" form. Some are intricate and complicated patterns while others are symmetrical and look like an asterisk. It is absolutely amazing to me how a small snowflake can be so detailed. God truly is amazing.

Second, where will my family and I be in five years? I would LOVE to be out of debt and living in a house of our very own. We have thousands of dollars of stupid credit card debt, medical bills, and student loans. It sucks. It’s like a giant weight on your shoulders and always in the back of your mind. Once we get all that mess paid off we could actually have a chance of buying a house. No more renting. Thankfully, currently we are very blessed. We are living in my grandmothers house for the time being, for free! We honestly don’t have to pay anything. We were originally going to live with my parents until we got the money situation under control. Thankfully, we didn't have to do that! I mean I love my folks and all but it would have gotten really crowded fast (not to mention we would really get on one another’s nerves like crazy.) Instead we received a call from my grandma offering us to stay in her home (since she got remarried and moved) until we got on our feet. We have this huge two story acreage to ourselves. I don’t know how in the world we would have been able to afford rent if she didn’t do that for us. It just go to show how much God really does take care of us.

Until next time. Happy New Year!

You guys should check out "Dave Ramsey" and see if there is a "Financial Peace University" class you could attend locally. We just got done taking F.P.U. and it was life changing regarding the way we looked and now look at finances. A DEFINITE Godsend. :)

That's awesome, Annie. I definitely know how you feel -- the weight of debt on your shoulders.
