Photos from Friends: The Kingdom’s Perfumery

“And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.” John 12:3

Crushed Roses

This picture has a story to tell.

Moments before it was taken, these pink rose petals were floating on breezes perfumed with their own delicate scent.  Rose petal bundlesThey wouldn’t have been aware that within days their petals would fade and fall to perfume only a limited piece of ground.

Dearest beloved, fear not!

You are part of a great distillation going on in the  Kingdom’s Perfumery.

You will only lose that which is not eternal. 

And once that which would fade is gone you will join that glorious fragrance so powerful that it fills the whole house.

“For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” 1 Cor. 2:15
