Every Mommy Has Her Favorite Perfume

Do you have a favorite perfume? I think everyone has a favorite. I like Channel – any of them. Yes, every Mommy has her favorite perfume.

It’s funny how a simple fragrance can remind you of someone. The other day I sprayed some Channel on me and instantly remembered my mom’s perfume collection. She liked it too. I was transported back to her walk in closet with the perfumes, all her matching outfits, scarves, shoes, and jewelry. My mom used to Broker a Real Estate office so she always dressed up for work.  I miss her, she passed away a few years ago. But that perfume brought me right back there.

What about you?

Do you have a favorite perfume?

What does it remind you of?

I found that the Holy Spirit has a fragrance as well. There are times that the presence of God will come upon you and you can smell it. It’s wonderful. You feel instantly protected and safe. God brings healing and hope in those moments as well.

“Live with love as Christ loved you. He gave Himself for us, a gift on the altar to God which was as a sweet smell to God.” – Ephesians 5:2 NLV

“We thank God for the power Christ has given us. He leads us and makes us win in everything. He speaks through us wherever we go. The Good News is like a sweet smell to those who hear it.  We are a sweet smell of Christ that reaches up to God. It reaches out to those who are being saved from the punishment of sin and to those who are still lost in sin.  It is the smell of death to those who are lost in sin. It is the smell of life to those who are being saved from the punishment of sin. Who is able for such a work?  We are not like others. They preach God’s Word to make money. We are men of truth and have been sent by God. We speak God’s Word with Christ’s power. All the time God sees us.” – 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 NLV

Your Wine – NaPoWriMo Day 11

“Look at me. I stand at the door. I knock. If you hear me call and open the door, I’ll come right in and sit down to supper with you. Conquerors will sit alongside me at the head table, just as I, having conquered, took the place of honor at the side of my Father. That’s my gift to the conquerors! (Revelation 3:20-21 MSG)

Your Wine

Copyright 2013 Diana Rasmussen

Frankincense and myrrh
Permeates my room
Your sweet smelling presence
My favorite Perfume

Let me drink of your wine
And bathe in your love
Drink the Living Water
That flows from above

Cover me with Your Robe
Hang Mercy on my shoulders
Clothe me with Your Grace
Hold me forever closer

So today I challenge you to write about wine-and-love

The Earth Trembles

This is the Psalm the Lord led me to this morning – I’m thinking it’s Deliverance time!

PSALM 114

When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,

Judah became [God’s] sanctuary (the Holy Place of His habitation), and Israel His dominion.

The [Red] Sea looked and fled; the Jordan [River] was turned back.

The mountains skipped like rams, the little hills like lambs.

What ails you, O [Red] Sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back?

You mountains, that you skip like rams, and you little hills, like lambs?

Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob,

Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters. (Psalm 114: 1-8 AMP)
