What's your family motto

Back from my retreat and one of the gems I waked away with was you need a family motto. 

Well after batting a few things around I said to a friend, "We already have one." I guess I have always operated on this sentiment especially during hard times.  "It's His (God's) plan not mine I am just along for the ride." 

Just now in the kitchen today my husband and I were talking about our weekend events and at the Mass he attended Fr. Moretti suggested each family have a scripture passage that is theirs. My husband said well we already do,

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few." Matthew 7:13-14

So we have our motto and our scripture verse already, now to get the laundry in order and start planning those meals so we can find peace in our world. I am betting it takes a little more than that but I am willing to start in that direction.
