The Fragrance of Christ

?”Thanks be to God, who unfailingly leads us on in Christ’s triumphal train, and employs us to diffuse the fragrance of his knowledge everywhere! We are an aroma of Christ for God’s sake, both among those who are being saved and those on the way to destruction; to the latter an odor dealing death, to the former a breath bringing life.”

I love the imagery in this quote from 2 Corinthians. We are as incense for Christ, of Christ… only much more profound.

In a profound change of imagery, this happened to me the other day:

Poor Jen. Whoever she is.

And in important developments:

  1. I joined the Catholic Writer’s Guild
  2. I made some plans for an upcoming trip I’m getting excited about.
  3. In fact, the trip is to the Writer’s Guild Conference. I’m hoping to go before they realize I’m not much of a writer and cancel my membership. I have things to learn, and am looking forward to it.
  4. And, I changed the name of my weblog once again.

  5. I like the word ‘chronicles’.

    Via; “a chronological record of events; a history.’

    And that’s about all this site is.

  6. Name changes drive ESTJ’s crazy.

Fragrance is very powerful, and often very subtle; a notion worthy of contemplation.
