My kids are taking some classes at the Hodges Community Center here in Lubbock, and while they're in class I've had the chance to enjoy the rose garden that sits in the back of the property.
This Monday, the fragrance from the roses was so powerful that I could smell them well before I approached the garden. If I hadn't already planned on walking among the roses, the aroma would have lured me in that direction.
I walked through the roses, snapped a few pictures with my phone, and as I kept deliberately and deeply inhaling the fragrance in the air, the Lord reminded me that Christ was a "fragrant offering."

Thanks for the beautiful reminder!
What a great picture! There is a large rose garden in Portland and I remember the awe I felt during my first visit. I am amazed at how there are so many intricate details in just one of the many things God created.
