The Fragrance

As I walk, the subtle lavender beauty attracts me from afar. But it is the fragrance of the lilac, carried upon a breeze, that entices me closer.
  The exquisite aroma insists that I pluck, that I make it my own. As a butterfly drawn to the nectar, I am captivated by such fragrance. This is the perfume of life itself, radiating from my hand.

Everywhere we go, people breath in the exquisite fragrance.
 Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent to God---
  an aroma redolent with life.
2 Corinthians 2:14-16 Message

According to these verses, I am an exquisite fragrance. That the aroma of Christ in me, radiates to God Himself. 
Me, lacking, failing, wounded. Am exquisite. Beautiful. Elegant. A sweet scent.
And that same perfume wafts through me enticing others. As butterflies drawn to nectar, they are captivated by such fragrance. Christ in me. Life in me.
