We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

Do you pour out your alabaster jar?

Baby Blue just posted an excellent essay about sacrifice, particularly women who serve their husbands and families with little or no earthly "recognition". It was written in response to a very distressing post by an Episcopal clergywoman who ridiculed women who chose the high calling of motherhood and wifehood eschewing the world's version of "fame" and "fortune". (These links are not at all necessary to enjoying the essay.)

The essay on the "Alabaster Jar" is an encourgement and challenge! I hope you'll take the time to read it.
