Dare 38 - Road map to the future

Ask yourself what your mate would want if it was obtainable. Commit this to prayer, and start mapping out a plan for meeting some (if not all) of their desires, to whatever level you possibly can.

What would Ron want:
Retirement and enough $ to go someplace warm and exotic

Pray about it:

A plan:
  1. Sell the house and downsize (recognize that this takes planning - not happening soon, but I can start by refinancing at current rates and then doubling up on the payments)
  2. Explore possible places to retire to where both Ron and I could be happy
  3. Review investments (what little there is), Social Security and savings possibilities
  4. Keep PRAYING!
  5. Don't get into debt - be really, really wise
  6. Work to make sure our mission is in there too

Next Challenge - Day 39  Spend time in personal prayer, then write a letter of commitment and resolve to your spouse.  Include why you are committing to this marriage until death, and that you have purposed to love them no matter what.  Leave it in a place that your mate will find it

Micah 7:18  Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
