My dear Sister Terry, calls me Martha-Mary :) I think it's great because I am often the one in the kitchen and can sometimes be found grumbling about it... it's true.
I was thinking about how much Jesus loves me. There are times when He calls me to be still and just be quiet in Him, but He knows I was not created for sitting. And unlike Martha/Mary, whichever one is the grumbler... I can never remember. I can bring Jesus into the kitchen with me. I can't wait to be quiet, and even though I know that God is always with me, I am thankful to talk to Him while making cupcakes!
I do not serve in the same capacity I used to. It's different for me now, but I am a part of it, even if I am standing in the background, or on my knees, praying! I am hugging and loving.
How thankful I am for a Savior who created me, who saved me, all for the sake of Love!
We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.” 2 Thessalonians 1:3 NIV
