I am not really surprised when a "Mary" comes in but I do love to observe them. I love to see their interaction with our children. They greet them on their level, interact with them and quickly pick up on their likes. They take time to see which side Mary Elizabeth is favoring that day so they go to that side so she can see them easier. They realize right away Michala loves to clap and you have her heart with that. Marlee Anne is not your typical 12 year old girl. Most times a Mary will see that and immediately treat her that way.
I love that our corner of the world includes both Mary and Martha because we need them both. Thank you to each of you for being that in our home. Just a little food for thought as you go through your day. Are you Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus listening or are you Martha busy, busy, busy?
