Day 6 so Far So good

I had another good run on the Faulkner Trail this afternoon. It was a lot more humid today and almost 90 degrees.

Continued to reflect on today's Gospel passage from the Gospel acccording to Luke. Today's passage is the encounter with Martha and Mary when Jesus says Mary has chosen the better part. I think most of us feel for Martha and envy Mary. Especially in today's world we are "busy about many things". The passage seems to clearly indicate that being busy and worried about many things is not just a modern problem. It also reminds us that we are called to seek the better part just like Mary did. The business still needs to be taken care of but being focused on "the better part" gives us the strength to do the business well.
