Hello friends! I hope you all are well and enjoying this bit of end of summer !
I had a few spare minutes and decided to make a quick card to share with you. I used some of the new products available at Our Daily Bread Designs, along with a past release, Fragrance. I can't seem to get enough of that set!!! The flowers and sentiment are from the Fragrance set, and I paired them with some new dies: BoHo Background Dies, Stitched Ovals, Faith, Hope & Love Dies, and a past favorite release, Layered Lacey Squares. The design paper is from the ODBD Chalkboard Paper Collection, and a scrap of pink from my stash. The beautiful flowers are colored with Copics and hand cut. It was fun to make this one and it came together quickly, which always helps! :)
So I was reflecting on "the fragrance of God's never ending love", and it started me thinking.... what is the fragrance that pleases God?
I came across Eph. 5:1-2
"1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."
God was pleased with the sacrifice Christ made when He willingly gave His life for the sins of the world... and it was as a fragrant offering. We're told to love and walk in love just as Christ did. I think this includes being willing to sacrificially give of ourselves, whether it's our time, our money, our resources.... when we love others sacrificially, I think that's a fragrance that's pleasing to God.
I do wish you the fragrance of God's never ending love!
