Luke 10:38-42 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
This is a portion of scripture that I have been mulling over for months, and trying to put into practice. Focusing on the things that are truly needful.
Things like, spending as much time with our kids as we can. Learning who they are and helping them become who they will be.
Taking advantage of sunny days
And cardboard boxes...
and learning together
sharing common interests
and making giant cookies
Timothy turned five yesterday!
The time goes by so very fast
and I've realized that making sure I update a blog regularly or have all of the dishes washed or attended every library program isn't really needful. So, I may post updates or I may not. In the end it's not that big of a deal.
