Today is a very special day. Why, you ask? Because today has been a L-O-N-G time coming. Are you on the edge of your seat wondering and dying to know what I'm talking about? Okay, I'll go ahead and share.
Today, December 02, 2011, is the day we FINALLY pay off the biggest debt we've ever had in our ten years of marriage (and before, if we're counting). The only thing we owe that's bigger is our student loans. Eight or so years ago, we thought we were being smart by consolidating ALL our current debt into one gigantor line of credit. (For those of you wondering, Dave Ramsey would've called us dumb for doing this.) We thought we'd have it paid off in six years (or less), but life happened and stupid decision-making happened and that didn't happen (you follow?).
So today, we are making our FINAL payment. Taking it down to ZERO. Praise God! He's pretty amazing, isn't He? This will leave us with student loans and two other much smaller debts to still pay off, before we can shout from the rooftops that we're debt-free. But it's coming and it's much closer than it used to be. Again, all glory to God!
What's really amazing is we're paying it off early. We're paying it off earlier than even our early plan. It's being taken care of in December, our worst month, financially, with Christmas and all. God is so amazing!
