A Month with Mary and Martha – Day 15

It’s time to wrap up our month with Mary and Martha.  I have a feeling I could go on and on, but I don’t want to beat the story to death.  God’s Word has many layers and just when you think you’ve dug out all the treasures, up pops something new.  I love that.  So “shalom” to our girlfriends from Bethany.  For now, anyway.

Dear Martha,

I just want to say I’m sorry for the other day.  I knew you needed help in the kitchen, but I couldn’t pull myself away from Jesus.  Forgive me for leaving you with all the work.  Sometimes it probably seems to you that I’m not pulling my weight around here.  I’ll try to do better.  I’ve always admired you for being so good at organizing everything and knowing so much about cooking and entertaining.  Even though I’ll never measure up to you, I want you to know that I think you are amazing.  I’m so glad you are my sister.  I love you so much. 

Your loving sister, Mary

 

Dear Mary,

Thanks for your note.  I’m afraid I came on a little strong the other day and I’m sorry if I embarrassed you in front of everyone.  Please forgive me for getting upset with you.  I was really just stressed out with all those people to feed.  I’ll try hard to be more patient.  Secretly, I have always wished that I had your sweet, sensitive spirit and your ability to stay calm.  Hopefully some of that will rub off on me someday.  I couldn’t have asked for a better sister and I’m so thankful to have you in my life. 

Love you, my dear sister, Martha
