I love the part that says that she wiped his feet with her hair. A woman’s hair during this time was her pride and joy, 1 Corinthians 11:15 even says that a woman’s hair was referred to as her glory. In other words, she wiped the feet of Jesus with her glory, her identity, her dignity, and any pride that she would have left in her.
