the good portion

Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman name Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.

I think at this point in my life, it would feel quite fitting to just refer to myself as Martha.
This week on my blog is dedicated to the good portion.
FInding it. Enjoying it. Sharing it.
Please discuss here.

That verse has been on my mind a lot the past couple weeks. I too want to enjoy the good portion.

Love you!

I'm a Martha too, trying to be a Mary. I've really been trying to just "simplify" lately, it's been baby steps...
