Sweet summer splendid scents

Posted on: Friday, August 5, 2011

Top favorite smells of summer:

1. Freshly cut hay and fields
2. Fire; Bon fire lingering on my clothes, campfire s'mores, fireworks
3. Fresh baked blackberry peach cobbler
4. Lake hair 3 days later
5. BBQ grillin' corn and ribs
6. Coco Butter lotion and Aloe
7. Fresh Kettle Corn
8. Fair food and deep fried anything
9. My dad's bacon
10. Farm fresh fruit and blackberry jam
11. Tracks surfaces that have baked in the sun all day
12. My bed sheets after leaving my window open all day
13. My hands after holding on to swing chains
14. Lemonade and sweet tea
15. Daisies

Some of these smells are so close I can see them and taste them, but others I smell from afar. As I breathe in each of these distant smells, I look around searching for the source, desiring to be nearer to it. I pray that just as these summer scents appeal to all my senses, so would the aroma of Christ in me appeal to everyone I interact with. I pray that I would give off the aroma of Christ in a way that is pleasant and desirable. That I would bear a scent that compels people to search for it's source, the source of all things good. Furthermore, I pray that in finding that source that people would eat and drink it in, that they would lather it in their skin, that they would hold tight to it, that they would rest easy on it, and that they would continue to follow it's leading ALWAYS MORE.

"But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing."

2 Corinthians 2:14-15
