“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are necessary – or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her” Luke 10:41-42
Different characters, different instincts
Each full of faith
Each turning to Jesus in her own way.
Will you sit at Jesus’ feet and listen to what he has to say?
Every blessing friend.
