Posted on : Jul 12th, 2010 | By | Category: Still Speaking

One time, Jesus was invited to eat at the house of a Pharisee, named Simon. While there, a woman from the city, who used to be a sinner, dropped by, uninvited, bringing with her a jar of costly ointment to anoint Jesus. But as she stood behind Jesus, she was overwhelmed with emotion and started to weep. So deeply was she moved; so many her tears, that it wet Jesus’ feet. This was not planned, she had no towel with her, and so she did the next best thing: she loosened her hair, and dried Jesus’ feet with her hair. Flabbergasted, I suspect, she then remembered the costly ointment she brought. Trying to regain her composure, she broke open the alabaster jar and anointed Jesus’ feet instead of his head as she had planned. wage calculator homely.
