I’m Done

2:13“This Good News tells us how God makes us right in His sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” Romans 1:17

Have you made a New Year’s Resoultion for 2018? If so, how’s it going so far? Whether it is going to the gym, eating better, drinking less, not cursing, being nicer, etc….Whatever your’s may be, it’s usually very difficult to keep them.

Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.” John 12:3

I want to thank you for bearing with me these last few weeks and months. The last few weeks especially have been extremely hectic-Between work and…my daughter getting married!- I couldn’t keep my mind straight. It’s funny, I didn’t realize just how much the prep for the wedding was on my mind. When I went to work that following Monday, I was actually able to concentrate. Continue reading “The Sweet Smell of Perfume”
