My favorite seasons of the year—spring and summer. The fragrance of the garden is wonderful. Don’t you love all the sweet-smelling blooms?Of all the sweet-smelling flowers, my favorite are the sweet, honey-scented roses. There’s something about sitting in a rose garden on an early summer morning, sipping tea from a delicate china cup that fills all my senses. It lifts me right into a quiet time with God.
The same way we are drawn to the sweetness of a flower, others can be drawn to the sweetness of Christ in us.
I love the way Apostle Paul made this connection:
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” 2 Corinthians 2: 14-15 (NKJV)
