Someone that does remind me--of me is Martha in the Bible
“As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.
She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.
But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.’ " Luke 10:38-42 (NIV)
Although I would hope that if Jesus entered my home for a visit that I would have the good sense to sit and visit with Him, drink in his wisdom and bask in his love without fussing. And yet, often I’m distracted by preparation and too worn out to enjoy the occasion when it comes to fruition.
Don’t be distracted by preparation because you might miss out on the blessings.
P.S. I'm feeling the prayers for my son again! Thank you!
