Do You Know What It Is?????


On my desk I have a little jar.... This little jar is always in front of me.... I have this little jar below my monitor because I spend most of my days in front of it... What is in this jar is a constant reminder to me....... A reminder that I want to be a pleasing aroma to those I know... those I meet... and mostly to God.... What I mean by a pleasing aroma is not my actual body scent (although I hope that I am appealing).... but the way I present myself.... The way I live my life..



If you look in the jar you will see many little "pebbles" of various sizes and shapes... The aroma of these pebbles is a beautiful spicy mixture.... An aroma you will not find here in America....

Can you guess what it is????? For the answer click here....

  3. @ Amo - it really smells good. It smells like very rich spices - similar to ground cinnamon, allspice... but with a hint of floral...

  4. I would have never guessed this one. I've never even seen Frankincense, much less smelled it. I love what you are doing with it!

  12. Cool!!! It makes me think of the verse in John 13 where Jesus gives the "new" command to love one another as I have loved you. If we really seek to do this (although we fail of course) we would be the fragrance.

  17. Love it! However, I can see the boys thinking they could play with it. I guess I would just have to put mine up really high. :)

  18. What a great reminder and object lesson...

  19. I got my kids some of this one Christmas. And some myrrh. No gold, though - I didn't want anyone to think I had a madonna complex.
