One word.

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.

Phillipians 4:11

“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

my headshots-50 2

I will find contentment.

I love your family theme, and word of the year! I'm not into making resolutions, but having a concrete plan, something that makes you focus, is beautiful!

I love this as our family is going through the same transition of an upcoming move. Thanks for the sweet reminder to relax enjoy what God has in store for us.
