Here’s what I’m thinking:
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.
