Martha and Mary

Martha was busy and hurried,
Serving the friend divine,
Cleansing the cups and platters,
Bringing the bread and wine;
She had no time to be sitting

–Mary was quiet and peaceful,
Mary was hearing His words
Mary was letting Him give—
Learning the Master’s mind,


No I am not Mary,

Who sits quiet and peaceful

Who Hears, Who Listens

For I have places to go

Roads to Travel

People to see

Mysteries to unravel.


Are you Mary or Martha?

It’s good Jesus loves us all!

Becky Jansen wrote most of the above.  It will be my children’s sermon tomorrow at Bunker Hill, Illinois.
