Extravagance

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.

  1. Hi Katie, it’s been a long time. My dad passed away on February 8th. It was a glorious departure, and although I had such a fear of losing him, I had nothing to fear. Haven’t posted on my blog in quite a while. It’s still too emotional to go back for now. Hope your family and your mother are doing well.

    • Hi! I’m so glad to hear from you. I’m very sorry to hear about your dad. A glorious departure…what wonderful words. I’m praying for peace and comfort for you and your family. I know you miss him. Mom is hanging in there. She’s getting platelets every 5 days, and blood every 13 days. She’s looking forward to my niece’s wedding this month. Thank you for your concern.
