Sometimes love is messy. It goes against the Martha in each of us, but it's Mary who sat, giving her all, at Jesus feet who received the tremendous blessings. And it's a place we all need to strive to find ourselves. Taking time to let the world around us fall into chaos if for one moment we can connect with the heart of Jesus by truly allowing God to use us in ways we really don't want to be used. This year, I challenge each and every one of us (myself included) to have a very Mary Christmas. And to continue preparing for the most exciting day in history yet to come. Jesus triumphant return.
