A beautiful thing

  Wine is better with age, I like to think that people are that way too. When we realize how precious every day tasks are, our gratitude quotient improves dramatically, making us happier. Then, when the moment comes to pour out who we are to the Savior- in that sacred moment of time (even when others may misunderstand) what has become better with age makes such an impact on the Savior that He carries the aroma of our gratitude around Him through His suffering. In the same way, the aroma of this perfume just a few days after it was lovingly applied announced what the banner on the cross spelled out, “King of the Jews”.* Rather than mock Him, Mary’s annointing affirmed the Savior’s true identity.- Teresa

 Matthew 25: 6-13 (ESV)

6 “Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper,[b] 7 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. 8 And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste? 9 For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”
