Finally..............

Just had to pop in and share a bit of great news. We paid our house off!! Praise God!! Since my retirement, it has been soooo hard financially. But God gave us the strength and determination and we made the last payment this week....it's all ours!! Now, it won't be such a strain each month and for Christmas, hubby and I are giving each other hardwood floors!! What a great gift!!

Thank you Lord :)

Love ya'll,
Vic

Ohhhh, what a relief!! It will be 6 more years for us, unless we start adding more to our payments...hard to do.
Please show the floors when you get them done.
Love, Debra

I can empathize with you. We paid our home off a few years ago and are thrilled to have done so. Hardwood floors will be so nice. Congratulations on that!
Merry Christmas to you!

Congrats! We paid ours off several years ago thanks to hard work and Dave Ramsey's teaching. What a feeling. So free. There is just a safe feeling that you are going to feel now. I am excited for you.

I know just how you feel, Vic! There is such a freedom in knowing that it's ALL yours and no matter what happens financially, that is one worry you don't have.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and I agree with Debra === please show us the floors when you get them done! Great gift idea!!!!
