Honey and Perfume

Honey and Perfume
What else costs 
  so little 
yet can be 
   honey on 
       our bread of life, 
   perfume in 
       the air we breathe? 

Though some souls 
may not deem them 
   sustenance 
nor call them 
   necessities, 
kind words 
   and acts 
freely given 
   and done 
nourish and sweeten 
our very existence. 
-Nancy Spiegelberg 

"...I tell you the truth, wherever the gospel is preached 
throughout the world, what she has done will 
also be told, in memory of her." Mark 14:9 NIV 

""he King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, 
whatever you did for one of the least of 
these brothers of mine, you did for me'...." 
Matthew 25:40 NIV 

(Note: Mary's anointing gift was very costly. See John Chapter 12.)
