Martha and Mary moment #8

our trees in the breakfast nook at night

Continuing on with the discovery of Old Testament passages in Mary's Magnificat, we find that verse 48 of Luke 1:

"for He has been mindful of the humble state of His servant."

was foreshadowed here:

"Though the LORD is on high, He looks upon the lowly, but the proud He knows from afar."

Psalm 138:6

How grateful I am that I don't have to be rich or famous or rocket scientist smart or movie star gorgeous to be looked upon by GOD. He knows who I am, He know my inmost thoughts, He made me, He redeemed me, He loves me. Plain, ordinary little old me.

Certainly, something to be celebrated all year long!


Got yarn? Here are lots of suggestions for pom poms over at the long thread. Have fun!

Busy weekend here - I'm kicking into Martha mode, but hopefully not neglecting my Mary side.


  • Set tables for the choir Christmas dinner (setting tables with various ladies' Christmas dishes or china)
  • Go early for the dinner, put finishing touches on food
  • Direct the evening entertainment for the dinner (more about this later)
  • Clean up
  • In the afternoon, sew every chance I get and practice piano when I get tired of stitching


  • morning meeting
  • afternoon Christmas tea, bringing a devotional and playing some Christmas carols
  • bake brownies for Sunday's lunch for choir kids
  • sew every chance I get and practice piano when I get tired of stitching


  • teach Sunday school with Pat
  • bring our angel tree gift to church
  • sing in choir
  • stay after church for children's lunch
  • children's lunch followed by dress rehearsal for children's program
  • sew every chance I get and practice piano when I get tired of stitching
  • return to church at 4:45 for bell choir dress rehearsal
  • 6:00 children's program with the bell choir performing 3 numbers at the end

Praying that none of my little munchkins :

1) pick their nose,

2) lift their dresses over their heads or

3) have a hissy fit.

It looks like a lot, but I am looking forward to every bit of it. .

Enjoy your weekend!

(no blog post tomorrow....)

I wish I could be there to help you with all of your programs! My "program with kids" verse is "My foot stands on a level place; In the congregation I shall bless the Lord." from Ps.26:12. God will provide level-headedness for you and the chance to bless Him, I know! The crab rangoon from yesterday sounds yummy. Linda

I'm curious about your marathon sewing project. Hope you'll tell us when you can.

I wish you could be here too, Linda! That is an interesting verse for your program with the kids. Would love to hear more.

Becky, it was and I did!

Pictures coming, Karen.
