Now, I'm feeling content to be used by the Lord in a quieter way. I'd be happy to encourage my fellow brothers and sisters in the truth day-by-day as we walk together on this path home. I'd be happy to share the astonishing news of Jesus with those around me if they will listen. I'd be happy to spin and dance in the light of God's word as I wait for Him to come - even if that's done from the quietest corners of the camp and not in the doorway of the temple proper. When Mary broke the costly jar of fragrant oil and anointed Jesus, some were indignant and rebuked her for the waste. She was not a famous priest or rabbi, but she loved the Lord and honored Him in a beautiful, quiet, and (very!) fragrant way. I want to be that kind of woman - a woman of the word - showing everyone that this Jesus is the Lord and that He is worthy to be praised.
