Guess who just turned 3…

… It’s Smelling Coffee!  
Thanks so much for being a part of this blog!  Over the past three years, God has tremendously blessed me through the blogging community, and I count it a privilege to serve Him (and you) through Smelling Coffee. 

I pray for each set of eyes that land on this page, and ask that God strengthen and encourage all of us as we learn to live life in and as the aroma of Jesus Christ. 

From 1 Corinthians 1:3-9, I completely agree with Paul as you remain on my heart every time I think of Smelling Coffee~

“May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father, and the Master, Jesus Christ, be yours.

Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.

Just think—you don’t need a thing, you’ve got it all! All God’s gifts are right in front of you as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale. And not only that, but God himself is right alongside to keep you steady and on track until things are all wrapped up by Jesus. God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure, shares with us the life of his Son and our Master Jesus.

He will never give up on you. Never forget that.”
1 Corinthians 1:3-9 (The Message)

If you still don’t know why in the world I’d name a blog “Smelling Coffee”, you can find the whole story (and song) here.

Much love to you and many thanks for you and your part of my life~
