Proverbs 27:9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart and the pleasantness of ones friend spring from his earnest counsel.
I dont know about you but a smell can bring back memories in an instant. Some not so good but others...oh sweet memories. The smell of coconut takes me to my carefree days of my childhood at the beach. I grew up in Huntington Beach, California. It was a different time and place then. The beautiful warm days, playing outside forever. Fear didn't abound...just childlike fun. I never worried about getting sick, having school closed or wondering if tomorrow would be. Those were the wonder years. I find myself thinking a lot about that time. Maybe you do as well.
Philippians 4:6 tells us do not be anxious for anything but in praye, petition and Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. So today we breathe in Him...not memories, not what was; just Jesus. Keeping our eyes firmly on Him alone. For today we sit with Him as a child with a father, a savior and friend. Anxious for nothing...just smiling and laughing as our cares fall away in His presence.
