PIF: Paid-off a Large $$$ Loan!

We recently completely paid-off our 401-k loan! We got the loan in Yr 2016; it had a 5-year term; and an interest rate of 4.5% (which was paid back into the account). What a load off of our financial backs 👍❤

The main reason for the loan was a trip to Europe to attend our oldest son's wedding. We went on a trip to Paris afterwards,  and paid for our other son's college tuition. Of course, we  also gave a cash gift to the Bride and Groom.  So, $30K later, the loan is finally paid in full --done and gone, whew! We intend it to be our very last 401-k loan ever, Lord willing. 

PIF. Yay, Praise the Lord!

For the LORD giveth wisdom: 
out of his mouth cometh knowledge
 and understanding.

Wood pulp is the raw material used for various paper products, including toilet tissue...

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7 )
