I finally got this print framed, and I wanted to share it because it is easily one of the most beautiful pieces of art I own.
It was done by a local artist, Vicki Sides, and is a pencil rendering of the woman anointing Christ's feet with the precious perfume depicted in Luke 7.
V37: And behold, a woman of the town who was an especially wicked sinner, when she learned that He was reclining at table in the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster flask of ointment (perfume).
V38: And standing behind Him at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with [her] tears; and she wiped them with the hair on her head and kissed His feet [affectionately] and anointed them with the ointment (perfume).
V39: Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw it, he said to himself, If this Man were a prophet, He would surely know who and what sort of woman this is who it touching Him - for she is a notorious sinner (a social outcast, devoted to sin).
V40: An Jesus, replying, said to him, Simon, I have something to say to you. And he answered, Teacher, say it.
V41: A certain lender of money [at interest] had two debtors: one owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
V42: When they had no means of paying, he freely forgave them both. Now which of them will love him more?
V43: Simon answered, The one, I take it, for whom he forgave and cancelled more. And Jesus said to him, You have decided correctly.
V44: Then turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, Do you see this woman? When I came into your house, you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
V45: You gave me no kiss, but she from the moment I came in has not ceased to kiss My feet tenderly and caressingly.
V46: You did not anoint My head with [cheap, ordinary] oil, but she has anointed My feet with [costly, rare] perfume.
V47: Therefore I tell you, her sins, many [as they are], are forgiven her - because she has loved much. But he who is forgiven little loves little.
V48: And He said to her, Your sins are forgiven!
Lord, let my heart be always as this woman's heart. I Thank You for allowing a sinner, such as myself, the honor of sitting at Your feet and loving You. I pray that my life be a sacrifice to You, sanctified by Your blood, and pleasing in Your sight. Thank You for the privilege of serving You and calling You my Lord.
