This week is about extravagance. So, live it up, baby.
I know you’re all still fasting. Well, maybe not all of you, but I’m not talking about you, yourself.
I’m talking about Love. So, I guess I should say, love it up. Look for ways to show love each moment you are given. Do more than anyone expects from you.
How’s that fast from complaining going? Yeah, me too.
The first thing to do to combat griping and lackluster mercy-love is gratitude. So, let’s get counting.
453. Europeans friends who show us grand hospitality
454. ironing finished
455. Palm Sunday
456. a donkey’s bray
457. a tiny swallow on the roof
458. swimming in March
459. a good novel
460. new opportunity
461. This extravagance:
Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. John 12:1-3
Blessings on you as you embark on this extravagantly holy week.
