"THE SWEET SMELLING AROMA"
Acrylic on Canvas
Freesias are known as the 7th wedding anniversary flower. In the bible the number 7 signifies completion and perfection. The number 7 is first mentioned in Genesis 1, God rested on the seventh day. This scripture signifies completion. The Lord desires for His bride to come into perfection, in a place of calm and in His peace. The garden within needs to be holy and pure, that's God's divine blueprint. Amazing how Holy Spirit chose for me to paint these flowers for such a time as this. Yellow Freesias were traditionally used to convey friendship. White freesias symbolise innocence. God desires that we be his friend as He is our closest friend, closer than a brother. Freesias have the most amazing fragrance. The aroma of Christ Jesus is sweet smelling. That's what God wants us to be, our lives a sweet fragrance unto Him and others. A pure heart is a gift from God, His secret garden is within you. Spread His aroma wherever you go.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8)
For I am the LORD your God, You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy(Leviticus 11:44)For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing (2 Corinthians 2:15)
