A heart like Mary's and the One Thing

and so the days whir and blur by...

and this song gets pulled up for my listening, for my participation.

So many needs. The best place to start is at His feet, to heed, to listen, to be encouraged and strengthened.

That's where we all began. That's where we will all end.

Luke 10:
39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. 40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”
41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

  1. Oy...the needs are piled up above my head. At one point yesterday I was nursing baby, listening to Andrew's running commentary on his trig, helping Emma remember her mult. tables, and getting the Wii set up for head nearly exploded, but I managed to keep peaceful. My heart is sitting at Jesus' feet, but the rest of me is running on that treadmill...
