I mentioned earlier that I didn’t do any resolutions. We picked a family theme for the year.
I didn’t want to have a list of resolutions to work on this year. I wanted to work on making myself better a day at a time.
I did however choose one word.
This word will be my mantra for the year. I chose the word:
I picked this word because just like last year, we have many changes going on with our family.
We will take a new job, move to a new location, find a new home, start new schools, and make new friends; among other things.
We did all of these things last year; and I have to say that I had a hard time just being content.
This year I am going to do it differently.
I found this scripture, which has brought me much comfort.
“For I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.”
So my new life lesson. Wherever we are:
living in a rental house
the discomfort of change
living out of boxes
living out of a suitcase
meeting new people
making new friends
leaving friends behind
I will find contentment.
