Today is the feast of St. Martha.
We all know her. Maybe we ARE Martha. I know I have plenty of Martha Moments, and it's not Martha Stewart I'm talking about.
Jesus gently reminded Martha that "Mary has chosen the better part" by worrying less about the dinner and the dishes and more about the happiness of the guests.
Yet Martha showed such faith and trust in Jesus after the death of her brother Lazarus; she professed her faith loud and clear, even in her grief.
My Martha Moments are the kind Martha had in the first story....worrying, anxious, even cranky.
May we all have more of the kind she had after her brother's death....putting her faith where it needed to be.
