Congratulations! I have played the lottery many times and the most I've ever won is $38.00. I am the mother of two beautiful baby girls and I would give ANYTHING to be debt free. I am in an abusive marriage and financially I have no way out. I've made many financial mistakes. They started when I was about the same age as you and I'm still paying for my mistakes now at 39. Be wise, be grateful and be blessed! You are very fortunate!

You may not ask God for the winning numbers, but it's not a bad idea to maybe ask if He's got a plan for you and the money. Never over look a blessing
