"That I may cause those who love me...

to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries." Proverbs 8:21
"Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease!... for riches certainly make themselves wings..." Proverbs 23:4-5

Today's subject is money and financial matters in marriage. I've been thinking about what to share all day. I got nothing, nada, zilch.

We are very blessed, and fortunately recognize that blessing. We see what the Lord has done for us and use it well. Frugal comes naturally. Why buy something new when you can fix what you have, or buy it for a fraction of the price at a garage sale?

I praise the Lord that we are likeminded in the economy of our home.

We don't have consumer debt, just our mortgage that we are plugging away on. Budgeting is a challenge, but it's coming along. There never seems to be too much money, does there? We both enjoy Dave Ramsey and his no nonsense advice. I can't wait to call Dave and tell him we've paid off the house.... oh to scream... We're debt free!

God is good.

Just two rules:
You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband. . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!
