Aroma.

Good afternoon 🙂

I hope you’re all having a good day!  Thus far, my day has been refreshing and productive.  I am doing a little spring cleaning and organizing.  Such a good feeling!  A friend and mentor sent me a few sprigs of lavender from her garden today and my room smells absolutely divine!

As the scent filled the air I couldn’t help but meditate on 2 Corinthians 2:14-17

14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads in every place the fragrance that comes from knowing him. 15For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; 16to the one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17For we are not peddlers of God’s word like so many;abut in Christ we speak as persons of sincerity, as persons sent from God and standing in his presence.

“The fragrance that comes from knowing him…we are the aroma of Christ…”  That is so beautiful!  Oh that I would be a fragrance of life to those around me…that through me, Christ would draw others to Himself.  He really is a breath of fresh, sweet air in our lives – bringing hope, beauty, and love into the good times and hard times because of His goodness and sovereignty. Our God is good!

I pray your day is going well and that those around you know the beauty, love and hope of God merely by standing near you!  What a joy to be witnesses to who God is!

Blessings, love and prayers from Montana 🙂  – Victoria

  1. Your message, aroma soothed my mind today as I am struggling with a headache and getting myself going. Perhaps it is the humid weather, with occasional rain showers giving my asthma a test. I think of you often and wish you well.

    • Oh dear Marilyn,

      What a joy to hear from you. I am so sorry you’re having a testing day but will pray for you!! You and Pete have always been so dear to my heart; I think of you often. Thank you for refreshing through the years! Tell Pistol Pete hi for me 🙂 Love you! victoria
