I love perfume – for years I couldn’t wear it – because I was involved in music ministry – choir and worship team – and so many are allergic to ANY fragrance – those of us that are not – simply had to “give it up” and defer to our allergy prone counterparts.
Now I can wear it to my hearts content ♥ I love the newest Juicy Couture – got it last Christmas from my amazing and thoughtful husband. Everywhere I go – people young and old comment on how I smell – in a good way ☺
Today I was reading my good friend, Ron Almberg’s blog – and he was talking about a “kiss” – different types and what it means. Here is his great article:
It really got me thinking. First – what is a kiss? Then what impression does it give? What does it symbolize from deep down inside us? What is the fragrance we are giving off?
I would love to think that everything that I do – is an outward expression of what is going on inside of me – my fragrance. But sadly – I fall short. Sometimes my scent is not so sweet – bound up by unforgiveness and pride – the impression in which I give off – may be somewhat dark and mystical – there also may sometimes be a spicy defiance – and a melancholy sadness that is overpowering at times.
I want my fragrance to be sweet – compelling – inspiring and encouraging. I want for others to see Jesus in me and smell His fragrance on my life. I want to point others to the truth – just simply by the way I live. But like you – I often fall short – and others do not comprehend Him – when there is too much of a “me” fragrance in the way.
When you give a kiss – does it display what’s going on inside of you? Is your self expression one of beauty, grace and a sweet aroma? Do you represent the Saviour in everything you say and do?
If you are like me – you long to do this. To just get yourself out of the way. To point the way – so that others may know….
Ron – this song is for you – it is my husband’s idea – as he thought it should have been posted on your great article today – but – since you did not – here you go ☺ Enjoy and God Bless!
