Yesterday when I was outside watering my thirsty plants, I noticed that my FIRST gardenia had bloomed...They have such a fragrance that i just cannot resist..Similar to my Illinois favorite of lilacs!!
I just could not let that little lone gardenia hang there so i clipped it off and brought it in to my cute little glass vase!!
This morning as I was in the kitchen I thought how fragrant just one little gardenia can be..Just one..It does not take a bouquet..but "Just One gardenia".
That made me think about being a Christian. We need to show the light of our Lord no matter if sometimes it is JUST one...us that is doing the shining. We ourselves, if we are true to God, have that fragrance that God gives us as his people.
We can show this to others, to our neighbors, to those in the stores, to our friends and most especially to our families!! God puts in us his spirit..His HOLY SPIRIT on the day that we ask him into our lives...He gives us that special fragrance that only we can us for Him.
Today i want to be like my one little lone gardenia and be fragrant for God in all that I do!!
