On being..

'She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said'

Luke 10:39

I always want to do something. I don't know how to be. I'm more a Martha than a Mary...its more important to get table settings right than enjoy the! Mary got it right, sitting at the Master's feet. Not because she wasn't going to go and do something later but right at that moment she just needed to sit down and relax, just 'be' with Jesus. Life is about moments, some seemingly insignificant but yet so pivotal. In a whisper, in half a breath they're gone...I'm learning to recognise them. When you love someone, spending time with them is a given. Just being...being a family, being friends, being people. Nothing wrong with doing but being precedes the doing.

Dear Lord, I need to learn to sit at your feet but I need You to help me. While I would rather foxtrot and quick step through life remind me that there should be room for the waltz and somedays its enough to just hold hands. Thank you Lord.

"Life is about moments, some seemingly insignificant but yet so pivotal."

Such a beautiful and accurate statement. Each second counts (the day I realized this, my entire perspective on life changed).

Ephesians 5:15-16 says, "See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

Our time, along with the precious moments embedded within, is very important.

Hmm..."Life is about moments" How deep and true!

Life is indeed short...I pray for grace to be more like Mary and enjoy every second of each passing day, because tomorrow isn't promised!

I echoed everyone's comment. Life is about moments. And God specializes in moments. You just never know when He would show up. Yes, Mary caught those moments.
