A SWEET FRAGRANCE
The dust has settled. The party's over, but the memories and pictures will go on and on. I received many beautiful gifts and cards but wanted to share this one because of the story.
Tresor perfume from Lancomb is my all time favorite fragrance. I received a large bottle of perfume and a beautiful gift box with another large bottle, a purse size and hand lotion at my party. I will be smelling wonderful to heaven and back for a very long time!
Then this morning when I was reading the Daily Bread devotion the title was
"The Fragrance of Christ"
How appropriate and how timely ~ In II Corinthians 2:14-17 Paul reminded the Christians there that they were the aroma of Christ. "For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ."
When we walk into a room, do people smell the fragrance of Christ in our lives, our smile, our compassion, our availability. I hope that's true of me. That's what I long for ~ to represent my Lord with the sweetest fragrance. Sometimes that all that's needed and more powerful than any words.
My actual birthday is Sunday May 1st, thus my middle name. Wanda Mae!! (only used when my mom was upset with me)
My girls are taking me out to breakfast Sunday morning so the celebrating continues....
Have a great weekend and perhaps Monday things will get back to "normal"....I hope not ~ tee hee
