II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Boats & Bikini's

So, a friend of mine called yesterday to tell me that her neighbors are selling their boat. She knows we've been wanting one...but it's really only just been a dream. Until now. We went and looked at it this morning and now we pretty much have the "fever." We looked on Craig's list and found another one that is the same price...but is a little bit older but in better condition. We are trying to decide if its the right thing to do or not. We JUST got out of some debt by paying off the van....but this would be a very small investment as we could pay for half of it cash and would only have to finance a very small amount. Also, it would be something we could have fun with ALL summer long and even into the fall months for fishing. On one hand, I think we should wait another year or two and for now, just focus on getting out of debt. But, on the other hand, I think...the kids are at the perfect age for this right now...and I don't want to "waste" 2 or 3 more summers when we could easily afford it right now. erghh......

And, for my second subject of this post: The Bathing Suit Poll is IN.

(yes, I know, I am WAY behind...)

Anyway, it looks like the majority of us will be covering it all up this summer.

9 of you said you'll be wearing a tankini
6 said you will wear a conservative bikini--meaning boy shorts or skirt bottom
4 of you said you'll be sporting a one peice
3 people said you're taking maximum coverage by wearing a t-shirt and shorts
and 3 BRAVE people (me included) said you will be SHOWIN' YA STUFF OFF this summer in a Teeny Bikini. (of course, mine totally depends on the outcome of my P90X journey! :o)

This was a fun poll. I am glad so many of you voted. Now it's time for a new one.....hmmm....

Hmmmm....you're in quite a pickle little lady. My vote is to not waste precious summers making memories and get the boat. They're only young once and at least they still want to hang out with their parents!

We're in the same boat, except I've got a new car bug!! A bit more expensive. My husband hopes it goes away soon and I hope I'm cured with a new suburban in my driveway!! :-)

I completely understand your thinking...I have had the same thoughts myself about making sure we are not missing "windows of opportunity" with our small children. I have been tempted many times with the same thinking. But...my advice to you is to 'say "no" to debt'. Not a scare tactic or anything but the truth is our economy is not the best right now and when we are in debt...we are at the mercy of the economy...what we don't "own" can be taken away with just one job loss etc. Yes, we believe God and He guides our steps etc...definately! But debt is a scarey thing. So...my 2 cents is to work on paying off your debts and then pay cash...then it's yours!!
