My 4th grade daughter is presenting her ancestry project at school today. She chose my wife’s mother as her relative to research. Her maiden name is Wicks, and her ancestry goes back to Ireland. We found the Wicks family crest with its family motto Cari Deo Nihilo Carent that means “Those dear to God want nothing.” As I work on arranging centuries old music for the album A Thousand Years, it is intriguing that centuries old family mottoes were expressions of faith in God. God as Creator and Father, and Jesus as Savior and Lord were absolutes – a beautiful testimony of living by faith. The Wicks family motto reminds me of the 23rd Psalm’s beginning, “The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.”
