I have to confess that
after I am Mary in the morning,
after I read the Word,
go to Mass, and pray,
I am Martha all the way through
to when I close my eyes and rest at night.
I am so preoccupied with
the so many things I need to do in a day!
Like today, after I come home from Mass,
I need to eat breakfast,
brush my teeth, practice my talk
on Green Marketing.
Then I leave for Miriam College to give my talk.
After my talk, I will visit some
of our papemelroti stores,
to talk to the staff, check on how
OR I may have to go to a branch
that is being renovated, etc etc.
I like the story in John 11:19-27,
because even if Martha has gone down
in Biblical history as a woman
so preoccupied with "work",
she is also the woman who
gave one of the clearest confessions of faith.
"Yes, Lord. I have come to believe
that you are the Messiah,
the Son of God,
the One who is coming into the world."
Martha is the woman who
had the temerity to approach Jesus,
and say reproachfully,
"Lord, if you had been here,
my brother would not have died.
But even now I know that whatever you
ask of God, God will give you."
Martha was the woman who
asked the impossible,
and received the impossible.
Lazarus, her brother, rose from the dead!
So let us be BOTH
Martha and Mary,
and see miracles happen in our life!
Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!
#47, Julie of More of Him,
a precious child of God
who loves to count her blessings!!
Sometimes I put on my best pajamas
and join these great parties!
