I went back into the kitchen and looked at the array of vegetables all over the kitchen counter. The water had evaporated on the stove. I felt a tear well up then caught a glance of a paper Mary had left on the table.It said "Camel Delivers, your local fish fry. " I found a messenger boy and sent him up the street to order the fish fry and an hour later a camel was at our door with the local fish fry delivery guy. It wasn't bad and I had a good time. I got to spend time with Jesus. And no, things were not perfect, but they didn't have to be. I let go of my expectations to be perfect and enjoyed my company. Jesus still brings his fishermen friends over and I still serve them but I spend time with them first, especially Jesus. I know now that you can't serve others without spending time with him first. He just changes your whole perspective on things. And as for Mary, she is still not into the whole kitchen, cooking thing- but she does the clean up and for that I am grateful. We both end up having a good time.
p.s. For decorating and cooking tips go to my website Martha and Mary's House at a Servant's heart. com
for coupons for your local fish-fry go to Camel Delivers at Lazarus st. com
Be blessed today as you spend time with Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
