There’s way too much “Mary” in the mix at my house, and it’s time to start factoring in a little “Martha.”
I’ve been spending a lot of time writing and reading and thinking.
There’s some doing that needs to get done.
I know that Jesus likes me to spend time with Him in contemplation. I’m pretty sure He also likes it, though, when I fulfill my obligations to others: to my husband (with a warm dinner), to my neighbors (with a weed-free garden), to the wider community (with a house that’s ready to throw open the doors to the world).
So, I need to get busy.
This painting, In the House of Martha and Mary, is by contemporary American artist Eileen Kennedy.
