On Sunday, at Mass, Fr. Tony showed us that healing and rebirth begin by facing up to our current reality. I use this blog to examine and report on healing my broken places. I don't have a healthy relationship with money. I'm a money agnostic. I don't know what my own right relationship with money will be when it is revealed, but I am 100% committed to allowing it to unfold and let my family be blessed.
Money has been so tight we'd have to take out a loan if we had gotten a flat tire. Over Christmas, I'd helped focus everyone on quality time rather than on gift getting/giving. That worked great: I feel we had a good, non-consumerism Christmas, plus we owe now $400 less on the revolving credit than we did before the holidays.
I've also been very careful with directing the flow of dollars lately, making sure that I don't mistakenly overcommit money in one area or another. Today, I see a reward from that: The revolving debt is current, all the bills (save one) are at 30 days or less, and finally the big one:
I have a positive balance in both home bank accounts as well as my business account. Double-digits, but positive!
Deep breath, and gentle release.
