Read an Excerpt

January 1 0 --Trust

Mary, Mother Of Jesus
First Century

Appointment books. Planners. Calendars. We outline our present, plan our future, and review our past. We know exactly where we want to be and how we want to get there. And then it happens -- the unexpected, the unplanned, the unforeseen. The death of a family member. A job change. A serious illness. Our neatly ordered lives are shattered and we are left holding the pieces.

How do we react when things happen that we can't control? Do we rail against the heavens, demanding answers, or do we accept, trusting that everything will work out according to divine plan?

Mary certainly wasn't expecting an angel to appear to her and ask if she was willing to become the mother of the Messiah. Naturally, she had a few questions -- like, how can this happen when I am neither married nor involved in a sexual relationship? Yet once her questions were resolved, she answered "Fiat" ("Let it be done to me according to God's will"). She was willing to trust, even when it entailed mystery and the unknown.

As we begin a new year, let us resolve to accept with joy the twists and turns life brings us. Let us open our hearts to the wonder of each new day and trust that our lives are unfolding the way they ought.

Do I have to be in control of everything? In what areas can I letothers have their say?

Today, And Every Day, I Will Trust In The Goodness
And Wisdom Of Life.
