"Is anyone thirsty?
Come and drink - even if you have no money!
Come, take your choice of wine or milk - it's all free!
Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength?
Why pay for food that does you no good?
Listen to Me, and you will eat what is good.
You will enjoy the finest food.
Come to Me with your ears wide open.
Listen, and you will find life."
Reminded again these past few days of my "word of the year" - listen. Something I am continually asking God to develop in me. A heart to really listen - to Him, first of all. And also to those I love the most, and to others around me. So much can be learned if we just slow down, pause, and really listen.
I want to learn more, just as Mary did - by taking time, and listening.
"There is only one thing worthy of being concerned about.
Mary has discovered it,
and it will not be taken away from her."
