My dear friend Tracy Weinzapfel has challenged me to choose a word for 2013 and put it to canvas.

Trust is a hard concept. Well, at least it is for me. I have come to a time in my life, and my families life, that there are a lot of unknowns. The economy sucks, we have two kids that will be college age in two years, and we have one child that needs some major surgeries in that same time frame. This leads me to my 2013 word.

In the past, I have come across people in my life that have betrayed and used me. It causes me to often put up walls and not let people get to know the true me. Thankfully, I have a loving heavenly Father that I know I can TRUST with my life and my families lives. He will never leave me, never forsake me, and will always be with me on this crazy, often bumpy, journey called life.

So, as a reminder during this year of unforeseen challenges, I have chosen TRUST as my 2013 word. I may not always be able to trust the people around me, but I know that I can always TRUST God. He has a plan for me, and each member of my family. I don't need to spend the year worrying about our future. I need to just TRUST.
