I was unemployed for 2 years. I suffered much (at my own hands) and was not much use to anyone. I regret that I did not trust the Lord much regarding money. That trust is now growing. Nevertheless, I realized some things while unable to find work. I saw an interesting freedom and I felt less encumbered. I lived off meager savings and trimmed off what was not mandatory. I was back to being frugal like I was when I was 20 and to my surprise the zeal for the Lord that I had when I was 20 seemed to return. Kind of weird eh? I am beginning to focus on getting out of all debt. The mortgage and the car is the only debt I have, but those debts force me to work. I don't like that, though I like my current work. Any way, what do you folks think about being or becoming debt free? Dave.
