What does God smell like?

December 21, 2006 1 comment

Noah and Rhonda delivered cookies to some of the elderly people in our church the other morning. At the first house, when the door was opened and they were invited in, Noah told the couple that he liked their house. He said that it reminded him of his grandma’s house. And then he said, “It smells of wisdom and God.”

The more I thought about it the more profound that was (especially for a 7 year old.) I don’t know where those words came from but I have enjoyed trying to get my head around what wisdom and God smell like. This couple is one of the pillars in our church. They are loved by everyone. I have never been to their house but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Noah’s description was right on. I only hope my house will some day “smell of wisdom and God.”
