One Word Resolution

One word resolutions have been making their way around the internet, and I'm jumping on board.  This year, my word is


Of course, I'm referring to trusting in God, here.  We have a lot of changes coming up this year, and I have no idea what some of them will be!  Where we move, when we move, what we will be able to afford to live in, and so on.  It totally freaks me out not to be in control of any of it, thus my resolution.  I'm thinking I'll get some wooden letter and spell it out on top of the piano just to remind myself. Rather than have my stomach be a twitterpated mess of knots, I'll just trust in God.. doesn't that sound easy?  I'll let you know how it goes.

They have more great ideas for resolutions over at Faith & Family today.  The feature article is "Resolutions for Lazy Catholics." I love it!  Right up my ally, and I love the suggestion of loading up a CD of hymns on an alarm clock for morning prayers.  I think I'll add that one to my list, too.


  1. "Trust" is a good one, especially considering all the variables cropping up for this year. Mine is "proactive." I've decided that if I'm not happy with how something is -- the state of the house, my prayer life, my attitude toward the kids, etc. -- I'm going to do something to change it, instead of just bemoaning it.

  2. I like this. This is a word I need to use more, too. Also - I actually really liked the article you linked to. It inspired me to start listening to scriptures, which I've been doing while puttering around/cleaning in the evening for the last few days. I get a lot more "read" that way...and feel like I waste less time, too.
