Mortgage Free

We finally did it. We paid off the mortgage. Two and a half years ahead of ‘schedule’.

We own our house free and clear. Now it’s time to save up and start fixing this place up – and for a new car (Chevy Impala or Buick Enclave) for me.

We don’t get the ‘official’ disposition papers until 30 to 60 days, but we did get the disposition transaction letter yesterday, so that is good enough for me.

It feels good to be debt free – until we get that new car.

Spring time . . . finally

With the bitter cold and snowy winter behind us, it’s time to start preparing for Spring and Summer. Lots to do this year including:

Cutting back all the dead plants
Raking leaves out of the flowerbeds
Moving the patio box to a permanent location
Cleaning up the garage
Assembling a shelving unit and a patio love seat
Getting the fence repaired
Getting the brick redone on the chimney
Putting in lots of cedar mulch
Hang the hoses
Tune up the lawnmower
Maintaining the fascia on the eaves and roofs
Wash windows
And a million other things that’s I’ll never get around too.

Wish me luck

Winter Weather

I’ve had enough of snow this year. The paddles on my snowthrower have worn down to the warning holes and I don’t want to replace them any time soon (Fall 2014 is fine). It’s supposed to warm up and even rain this week, so let’s hope that the snow is done, at least for a while

Surprise!

Which Prayer Do I Answer

A Windsor, Ontario couple recently lost a dog and have invested considerable time and money searching for their lost pet. I can appreciate the investment, but it has to be a super-slow week in the world of news when this is a front page story. Given the number of strays that the local Humane Society takes in, losing a pet is a common occurrence in a city as big as Windsor.

But the lost pet, the search and the newspaper article are not my issues.

It’s the people who are “praying” for the safe return of this dog, that I have an issue with.

In the article, there are plenty of comments with people saying that they have the couple and the lost dog in their prayers.

Really? Praying for a dog?

That leads me to subject of this post: How does god pick which prayers to answer?

Does she use a list of criteria to score each prayer, then rank the prayers and answer the top 10 or 100 or whatever number he decides on? Are prayers weighted based on a person’s ‘religiosity? If you go to church every Sunday, do you score higher? If your white, rich and famous, do you score lower (or higher)? Do common prayer requests – ‘god lead this team into victory’ – score lower then unique requests?

The possibilities are endless. I like to believe that god uses a rather large version of a crown and anchor wheel.

I’m not trying to make fun of people praying. Individual meditation and reflection is a good thing. But keep the prayer requests to yourself. I don’t want to know what you are praying for.
