What is Your Fragrance?

A beautiful and thoughtful reminder from the pen of Emilie Barnes. . .

"What is your fragrance? Are you the one who others don't want to be around? Or are others wanting to smell the freshness of your sweet spirit because you are a blossom so strong with the fragrance of the spirit of Christ?"

May we all take the time to develop that fragrance. . .


  1. OH WOW! I love that passage. It's beautiful and I want to be that person!!


  2. What a wonderful blog !
    Scent is such a gift - and your photo reminded me of summer time gardens.

  3. I just love Emilie Barnes !

    I am printing that to serve as a reminder!

    I don't think I've commented in your blog before (though I visit frequently), so I'm waving here and saying hi!

    (can you see me?)

  5. I had the privilege of going to Emelie Barnes' home in California for a class one time. It was such fun. Her home is cozy and beautiful.

    That is so thought provoking. In fact the Lord put that on my heart when writing a monthly devotional. I titled it "What's Your Signature Scent?"

    Thank you so much for being so inspiring :)


  7. What a lovely thought provoking quote. Thank you!

  8. What an interesting and fascination metaphor. I like it! Cindi
