I'm hosting a big party for my mom this afternoon and I woke up thinking about what all I might have missed in the preparation.
I am 'Tizzy Lizzy' sometimes when hosting things.
I read the devotional reading today in JESUS CALLING and it referenced the Bible passage where Mary and Martha are hosting Jesus.
Martha is in a tizzy, thinking Mary ought to be helping in the kitchen instead of just listening to Jesus. Well, there's no Mary here this morning, but Martha is here big time. She is 'worried and upset', as Jesus calls her. Then he tells her Mary has chosen what is better, etc.
It's amazing how I needed that.
So now Mary is here, I'd like to think.
(And Martha is settling down.)
(And Tizzy Lizzy has left the building.)
AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE FUN THIS AFTERNOON!!!
UPDATE on party (now it's 8:25 pm) - it was fabulous, if I do say so... and we had about 70 folks!!! (63 signed the guest book) Everyone told me how much they love my mom - so that was awesome (and not surprising)..... We had a enough food, but ran out of punch near the very end (so I got out Dr. Pepper, and orange juice (but didn't put them together). I must say, my punch is divine - it's just ginger ale and sherbert (I used pineapple, so it wouldn't stain anything.)
Anyway, I'll post pictures later.
