Is "Financial Peace" an Oxymoron?

5 years ago

Tonight was our second class in the Financial Peace series. I think Dave Ramsey put it best when he said that those two words don't usually go together.

It's the best oxymoron I can think of: Financial Peace

We all probably know that finances are a big issue with couples. I can say that while we have had our issues and disagreements, we've only had one fight about money. Mostly because I bit my tongue a lot (and I mean a lot) when we were first married. I probably did not bite my tongue enough for The Calm One's sense of comfort.

We are total opposites. It's what I love about us and what irritates the bejeebees out of me. Funny how that works. God sure has a sense of humor.

I am so excited to attend this series of classes and to know that The Calm One is 100% on board and committed. What a relief. Finances are hard enough when you are on the same page, but to not have both partners committed to the same goals . . . whoa.

I cannot even imagine.

So, having said all that, it will take a while to get things straightened out. But these classes, pep talks, prayer and heartfelt discussions with The Calm One have lead to peace.

Actual, honest to goodness peace.

And for that, I am joyful.

Counting it all joy,
