    • Hi Sarah!

      Thank you so much for reading and for your sweet comment! It is so nice to meet you!
      I hope you are enjoy a beautiful and fragrant filled Fall….in more ways than one.
      Many Blessings!

  1. Beautiful!! What a precious reminder to allow Him to minister to our spirit. I love Matthew 11: 28-30 in the Message: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

  2. Beautiful Sibi, I still remember what a joy it was to meet you in person. And seeing your words and photo here made me smile all over again. I’m a fellow lover of fall and while I had thought of being the fragrance of Christ, I’d never really associated it with the smells I love. Now I will! I hope I smell like a pumpkin spice latte. Yes, ma’am. Thanks for this sweet insight. So glad your words are here with us today!

  3. LOVE this… this is one of my favorite scriptures… each day when I walk into my room and smell the previous days fragrance painting the air… I remember this scripture and pray that as I share God’s goodness with others… there will be a fragrance left behind too… just as He has left me His fragrance.

  4. Once again, I sit in awe of my heavenly Father and how he uses you to speak to places in my heart that I try to keep buried under life. I am so hppy for you to have this new place to write, you will be used greatly for His good and I know that is the deep desire of your heart. I have been praying for you and your family and the new flutter who will be here soon. You are such a blessing

    Love, Cha Cha

  5. I had to copy and paste this part because this is the part that spoke to me and made me cry –
    “There is healing for the broken places. Oh the broken places. He’s so good with those. Places that ache where no one but the Father knows the width and depth of it all. I am learning to trust Him with the deeper places. The places that have been crushed. ”

    I love this – “And I try to remember that the fragrance always comes after the crushing and it is the crushing that produces change.”

    And today I am reveling in the joy of having my son home from college for a few days, after he has been half a country away for two months and going through his own crushing circumstances for the past month. Seeing him being crushed led to aches and deep broken places in my heart as well. I’m so thankful that God knows the inmost parts. I’m learning trust is a huge issue for me- trusting the Lord with my children, trusting Him to be enough, trusting Him to take care of everyone I care for.

    Today the aroma of His love shall carry me through.

  6. Honey –
    I am so proud of you, keep writing my pearl you are so gifted and talented. I just love seeing your work, it’s’ so inspiring.
    I am truly blessed beyond words that He chose me to be your husband, and thank him everyday for the gift that is my wife.

    I love you sweet Pearl,

  7. Hi Sibi

    This is beautiful and so resonated with me – I have felt like winter has overstayed her welcome as well and am ready for a so needed change. thank you for this and for your sweet heart!


  8. My very own P&G on this wonderful site. What a treat for all of the readers who have never had the pleasure of reading your words. Another post that warms the heart and radiates His love for all of us. We are all so blessed to know you and I’m so very proud of you. I know one of these days I will walk into my local bookstore to buy your beautiful written words.

  9. Very beautiful I can picture and smell just what you are talking about, this is my favorite season. I am in Alaska now, but not long ago I was in New Mexico, and one of the fragrances of Fall in NM is the smell of roasting green chile, there is nothing on earth that smells like that smell. So this year I found a place on line to order green chile from NM that I could afford, and for the last couple of days I have been roasting green chile,,,,,, it takes me back. I also have been learning to trust Him with my darkest places and it is so wonderful to feel that amazing freedom and peace. Thank you for your blog today it was a very welcome statement. And thank you God the Father, and Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit for all You have done for me.!!!!!!

  10. Mommy!
    I am so unbelievably proud of you! You have such a gift and really know how to touch the lives of those in need. This is a great post and I cannot wait to come home so we can sit down and enjoy the changes of this new season that are about to happen! I’ll bring us both a pumpkin spice latte!

    Love You,
    Your Macey Girl

  11. As usual beautiful Sebi. You always remind the world how much he loves us.

    Love you,

  12. This was beautiful. And if It hadn’t brought warmth to my heart, seeing her husband’s comment CERTAINLY did. How wonderful!
