Sincerely, Martha

I'm sorry that I haven't blogged.

Sincerely,
Martha

Are you too busy?  I am.  I've done it to myself and I'm not even doing it very well.  I just remembered that there are clothes in the dryer from Saturday (it's Tuesday).  I do take time to worship, but I'm finding it hard to slow down.  On Saturday I went with a group of ladies to see The Promise in Glen Rose.  I noticed a look or relief on several women's face as we sat down to eat.  It was a relief to have made it there, a relief to be away from everything, a relief to be with women we love relaxing. 

Note to self:  It is OK to say no.

Read Luke 10:39-42, why don't you take time to read the entire chapter?

Mary and Martha Worship and Serve

 Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word.  But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”
And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.  But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

It's OK to be Martha, just be Mary too!

God bless,
Yolanda, the McLean Queen
