Sweet Fragrance

 

I like candles. There are a couple that I buy each and every season.  There are certain perfumes I love, and some not so much. There are sprays to eliminate foul odors in shoes, cars and carpets

Don’t you love walking through gardens smelling the delightful fragrances floating in the air? Right now honeysuckle is aloft and hits your senses with power when stepping out the door. I love peonies and saw a perfume in a magazine today of that very smell!

How about walking into your grandmother’s kitchen and smelling fresh apple pie? And who can forget freshly baked bread? And garlic….it smells great on breadsticks, well anything really.

Have you imagined a scent right now? Scents even have the ability to bring forth memories. Scents have amazing influence and impacts on our lives.

A sweet smelling fragrance has an even more permanent impact

 

A fragrance in this passage is something sweet-smelling, an odor of acquiescence, satisfaction; a sweet odor.

We are a fragrance….Christ through us! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I think I stink. But in Christ, nope…I am a peonie!

The waves lap up against the shore in a delicate calming rhythm.  Or they might be crashing upon the shoreline with glorious fury. The water might sparkle or it might look grey and ominous. The sounds are that of seagulls and birds or it is dawn and you hear virtually nothing. Continue reading
