Several years back I discovered a delightful Christian author and artist by the name of Karla Dornacher. Her heart overflows with love for the Lord as do her books and artwork.
This book is just a joyful blessing to my heart and encourages us
to GIVE THANKS IN ALL THINGS! Why? Because it is what
God says to do!!
God also says that we are to Him the “Aroma of Christ”!
(2 Cor. 2:15)
Can you even begin to wrap your brain around that?
Me, Becky, with all of my issues and my sometimes stinkin’ thinkin’,
all of my mistakes, and sins…I smell like Christ to God? WOW.
“The earth is full of smells, and so are the heavenly realms.
God apparently loves a good aroma as much as we do.
The Bible tells is in Ephesians 5:2 that the sacrifice of Christ

So how is it that we smell so wonderful to God…even as the “fragrance of pure love”?
Karla says “As we give ourselves generously to love others the way Jesus loves us, we also become a sweet-smelling fragrance to God”!
Do you have someone in your life that needs your forgiveness?
Do you have someone in your life who needs some encouragement?
Do you have someone in your life that needs to know someone cares?
Do you have someone in your life that needs a gift of food?
Do you have someone in your life that needs to know you love them?
It may even be someone in your own home or in your family!
Will you join me and take action with your “someone”?
Let’s be the lovely fragrance of pure love to all those around us, and just delight in imagining God’s nostrils
filling with that wonderful aroma, making Him smile,
and touching people’s lives with His love.
I’ve enjoyed sharing a cup with you this morning!!
Have a glorious week!
NOW GO OUT AND BE A NUISANCE TO THE DEVIL!!
