Wow! Impressive.

I have to be honest. As I began reaing I lost interest, having no clue to who it was. So I skimmed down until I recognized it was Mary Magdalene.

Then I started over again, being able to take it all in. Now that I knew it was Mary, the writing was powerful. This might be one time where the mystery loses the reader. Perhaps a better clueI.....” I slip into the room, clutching the alabaster jar tightly. Visions of my life blind me momentarily...”

A wonderful insight, beautifully told.

Beautiful! At first I wasn't sure where you were going with this, but by middle of the second stanza, I was thinking about this woman. Wonderfully written.
The words are powerful. You painted an outstanding mental picture. It took a bit to get to the topic, but once you did, it came together nicely.

I believe the beginning has a different pull for each person base don their past circumstances. It pulls you in because you are not sure who the speaker is. As it unfolds it pulls me in deeper to the heart of the woman at Jesus feet. The fear she must have felt fighting her resolve to honor Jesus.

This is beautiful and compelling. Well done.
