It's Possible to Be a Mary AND a Martha!
Remember the story of Martha and Mary -- two sisters, both who loved Christ immensely? Martha loved Him so much, she wanted to serve Him with excellence and Mary loved Him so much, she wanted to just be in his presence. Two ways of loving and showing their love. (Luke 10:38-42). I have such respect for both of those gals, because, so many times -- I'm both of them!
After my cleaning detail was finished, it was time to cook. I've promised to make up several meals and freeze them so Mom has a stash to choose her meals from. Today, was sweet & sour beef -- one of Mom's recipes. I was her student as she was very pleased to make sure I had it right. LOL! Tomorrow, I'll be in Lydia's Kitchen -- having a cook-off against myself!
That's what I plan on doing today. I'll be a Martha, cooking up meals for Mom's freezer, and I'll be a Mary, staying in-sync with our Lord Who is always speaking, giving wisdom and insight to us. Perhaps, squeezing out some sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving is a daily practice that would give us that extra "spring in our step" too!
