Pleasing Aroma

"diffusing the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." 2 Corinthians 2:14

Am I doing this in my life? My Blog? My family?

Kim over at A Planting of the Lord thinks so. I am touched by her thoughtfullness.

I don't always do a good job of setting a pleasant tone in our home, it is something with which I constantly battle.

I love to burn candles in my home, I love vanilla the best, and then clean fruity fragrances next. Sometimes I have gotten a bad smelling one and it nearly makes me sick to smell it. It reminds me how God made each of our senses and how he draws analogies in His Word with examples of those senses.

Psalm 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

Luke 14:34-35 Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Job 11:18 And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security.

Thank you Kim for this sweet award and the reminder that we should spread the sweet aroma of Jesus where ever we go.

You are so sweet, Mary Lu. When I decided to do this, I never expected you (or anyone, at that) to come up with a graphic and actually put it up on your blog. I am blessed.
I just wanted you to know my life is touched by the life you lead for Him.
Hope you have a tremendously blessed weekend!
Kimberly :)

Mary - your comments on the senses also made me think of:

Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
