I {LOVE} Sunday {and Still Saturday}::the aroma of life to life...

{This year's first gardenias}
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things?
2 Corinthians 2:14-16

I {LOVE} Palm Sunday::to declare...

They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks,
and he sat on them.
Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road,
and others cut branches from the trees
and spread them on the road.
And the crowds that went before him
and that followed him were shouting,
Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!

And when he entered Jerusalem,
the whole city was stirred up, saying,
“Who is this?”
And the crowds said,
“This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”
Matthew 21:7-11

Saturday

Still Saturday::a purpose for all of life...


Oh give thanks to the Lordcall upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!


Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!


 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!


Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!


Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles and the judgments he uttered,


O offspring of Israel his servant,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones!


Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Tell of his salvation from day to day.


Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!


For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and he is to be feared above all gods. 


For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.


1 Chronicles 16:8-13; 1 Chronicles 16:23-26

Still Saturday::Undone together...


In the relinquishing of independence, I discovered community. My brokenness gave me connection, relationship. I thought asking for help was an admission of weakness. 
Instead, I discovered it a declaration of strength. Like King Jehoshaphat, it was the laying down of my crown that I finally found my place. 
Our God is a refuge for the broken, not a shelf for the display of the shiny. No more pride for those who have it all together, or shame for those who don't. 
Only stripped-bare humility, crowns on the ground. Together.
