But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her."
~ Luke 10: 41-42
The Lord is most extravagant in his love for us; his sometimes most unreliable servants. How foolish to give our lives- our time, our attentions, our obedience - to mere idols who can love no one. Martha was rebuked not for her work but for allowing her work to make her lose sight of love.
No big plans for today. St. Martha is the patron saint of cooks and servants so serving my family a nice, albeit simple meal tonight in love sounds like celebration enough to me. That and some extra prayers for a sweet friend who is remembering her precious little saint in Heaven.
I had an appointment yesterday and we got to take another peek at this baby girl we affectionately refer to as "Cupcake". She is right on track to be about the same size as my other babies. We saw her practice her breathing which I had never seen a baby do before since I have never had a sono this late in any of my pregnancies. She is head down and likely to stay that way, we pray. We couldn't see her sweet face since she was turned away so we will just have to imagine what she looks like. Thank you for all of the continued prayers!
