*********Our sweet boy passed away yesterday, February 20, 2023. He was almost 12 years old and taught us so many things worth repeating. The Father used him in so many ways. RIP Sweet boy, our hearts are broken, but how grateful we are to have had you in our lives.********
My pup and I have a routine we go through every single night. And if I am not where I am supposed to be, sometime in the evening I have to get there…no matter the hour.Continue reading Lap Dogs→
Many of us have routines. I have to laugh at mine a bit. Wait, I have to put on my glasses to be able to see to complete the routine. LOL
I take my anti-fungal for my Valley Fever, put on my compression socks, put on my posture brace, put my rice scarf on my neck, put on my inside Chaco’s, take my supplements for my Fibromyalgia, and allergy medicine.
These old “earthsuits” do wear out. I am proof of that. But, I am grateful that I still have this earth suit too!
But, today did I put on the armor?
The belt of truth?
The breastplate of righteousness?
My feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace?
The shield of faith?
The helmet of salvation?
The sword of the Spirit?
The truth of the matter is this:
It is the only way I can be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power!
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!
