reminder of who I want to be...

Quote from Tonia @ Study in Brown:
"What I really want to be is... a tiny yellow flower hidden in a vast deep wood; a precious ointment shimmering in an alabaster box, poured out on the feet of Christ in love. "

Tonia reminds me what I want to be: something small, hidden, unnamed except by my Creator.  A nameless, faceless worshiper. Flowering and spent for Jesus.

"A woman in that town who lived a sinful life 
learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, 
so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. 
As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, 
she began to wet his feet with her tears. 
Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them."   
~Luke 7:37-38
