Paying Off

Once again I am staring in the face of more debt caused by past responsibilities of my spouse. I (we) have paid off the debt he (we) owed to his daughter because of the lawnmower he 'had' to have. I (we) have paid off the debt to the IRS he (we) owed because he ignored a 1099 three years ago. Now, there is more debt he (we) owe due to not paying off a credit card from years ago.

  As I wrote that I had to put the 'wes' in there----to remind myself WE are in this thing called marriage together.

I knew he didn't manage his money well before I married him, but I had NO idea that it was as bad as it is!!

I am trying to look at this from the stand point of, 'What does God want ME to learn through this'. 

Yes, God has provided me with the desire to be debit free. He has also provided the funds when these debts needed to paid off.

Trust? YES, a resounding YES. I do trust that I (we) will get through this one too.

Words Spoken About Me

Recently two of my dearest friends spoke very sweet words to me--about me. I have a hard time owning these words. But these two precious women KNOW me, so could they be right? But I keep thinking that if they KNEW me they would know these things could NOT be true. So, why the self doubt? Why not just accept the kind words?

Monica wrote, You have shown me how to live life full of gratitude and love.

June wrote, Most of your life is characterized by thankfulness and all of your live is characterized by love.

I will have to ponder these statements for a while.
