“At his feet weeping”

A woman in need heard that Jesus was dining at a Pharisee’s house. She approached him with an alabaster jar of oil and washed his feet. She dried his feet with her hair.

This drawing is the second drawing I finished last week. After not picking up a pencil in over thirty years, this stern woman appeared who seemed to long for Jesus. Her need, her anger about her past and her longing to be healed is written on her face. This is a depiction of her desire for Jesus, before she buys  the expensive oil, before she discovers Jesus dining with the Pharisees, before she bends down at the feet of the Master.

From our own longing for God, we hear today’s gospel and we too ache to be at the feet of Christ who overcomes all things even within our hearts and lives.

One thought on ““At his feet weeping” Luke 7: 36-50

  1. I would like to see this person reflecting the “fresh face of new life” that she now has!
    Thanks for your Spirit-filled DRAWINGS!
