It was a typical day. Got off to work. Needed some money and had to stop by the bank to use the ATM, inserted my card and punched in all the required digits waiting to hear the sound of the notes rolling out, only to be greeted with “Sorry machine unable to dispense cash“. * red face with two horns” . You know that feeling when you just used the last money in your wallet to get to the ATM *smh .

Anyway fortunately for me it was my bank so I had to go to the banking hall. DEAR LORD!!! you can’t imagine the queue. Since I had no choice, I joined the queue. Needed to get busy with something to divert my attention from the anger welling up on my inside. So I started tweeting and got lost in it. Suddenly there was a change in the atmosphere. I could feel his presence around me and it was so intense. I had to look up from my phone to spot him and he was nowhere in sight but I could swear he just entered the banking hall. Then it hit me, Reaction by Kenneth Cole. Someone was wearing the cologne and I thought he was the person.

The woman with the Alabaster box broke it at Jesus’ feet and the whole atmosphere changed, even when she was gone the fragrance lingered on. Acts 4 vs 13 “Now when they saw the boldness and unfettered eloquence of Peter & John and perceived that they were unlearned and untrained in the school, they marveled; and they recognised they had been with Jesus” AMP .

Now I ask what fragrance do you exude. When your name pops up in someone’s head, what comes to their mind? When someone meets you, can they tell you’ve ever been with Jesus without you mentioning the bible or church? Do you exude a sweet smelling fragrance or a pungent smell like ammonia? One thing we fail to realise, our fragrance stays back when we are gone. The other day I passed by a refuse dump and the smell was out of this world, although I had left the area I could still perceive it.

I won’t go through the pains of bringing up our “supposed” hidden character (because the list won’t get exhausted). I’ll let you do the soul searching. No one knows you better than you. Take a seat and have a “me-time”, just you and yourself alone and talk. Be honest too. Get a pen and paper, analyse yourself and score yourself. Isn’t it just awesome to set the exam by yourself, write it and still mark it . NICE !!!

We are the SALT of the earth, if we lose our taste what will become of the world? We bring light to a dark place, we change the atmosphere with our presence. Question is, what’s the impact of that change? Is it in a positive or negative direction?

Are there areas in your life, you know deep down emits a foul smell, then start working on it. On the contrary people long to have your sweet smelling fragrance all over them, keep at it while you inspire people to be like you.

Loads of Love

    I’ve always gone through your write-ups without dropping a note. This one, however, somewhat compels me to drop one. The fragrance one exudes does linger after the person is long gone and some are so strong that they still linger after the person has left this world. Like I always say, it takes a consciousness of one’s self & an awareness of one’s surroundings to be able to give out the right smell. I’m far away from my Mum but the aroma of her tasty meals still fill my nostrils simply because she has CONSCIOUSLY & CONSCIENTIOUSLY worked on her cooking to always give out the same result, irrespective of the amount of seasonings and/or ingredients she uses. This piece helps us to learn to work on ourselves. If we must be the salt of the earth, our fragrance must always leave those in our surroundings with tasty, refreshing smells.
