EASTER! And the Divine Exhale

(Notice the women!!!)

"Similar to the anointing a wife/Queen does for her husband/King, with the very oil mentioned in the romantic poetry of the Song of Songs, she comes to Christ as He joins in Passover with others. Whether we are witnessing the potential wife of the Savior perform a sacred and traditional ritual of anointing before He is to become King on the cross, or a committed woman in worship, what is portrayed here is powerful devotion, nonetheless.


May we spare nothing in our gratitude to the Savior. May we walk into rooms full of those that would curse us for our convictions, and proudly break the stoneware, that we may let every drop drizzle over His hallowed head.


As the strong smell of spikenard filled the room, even the good men among Christ found fault in the costly mess of this holy ritual.


In moments, the most dedicated beside you may not understand your conversion or holy callings- but to this, Christ says, “She hath wrought a good work on me,” and what “she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.”


I invite you to think about what you can spare for the Lord. Walk with determination, humbly and consistently preparing and dedicating yourself for the Lord."

John 10:10

I am come that they might have life.


II highly, highly recommend reading this talk: Jesus of Nazareth, by Neal A. Maxwell. When I was studying in Jerusalem, I read it daily, if not more. There are many power messages in this address.

John 19:25 ¶ Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto [the home.]. My translation

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. KJV

SONGS OF LIFE, by Neil Diamond

Songs of life, they ring

From quiet steeples to distant valleys

Along the hillsides of lovers' hearts

Of lovers' hearts

Come sing you songs of life

And they will keep you

From ever wanting, from ever needing

Forever more, forever more

Oh, and when the moment's true

They sing so softly to me and you

You know they do, you know they do

So I sing my songs of life

That I will hold you inside forever

And you will know me

And I'll be yours and you'll be mine

And when the moment's true

They sing so softly to me and you

You know they do, you know they do

And I'll sing my songs of life

That I may hold you inside forever

And you will know me

And I'll be yours and you'll be mine
