Your assignment and discussion regarding the importance of a “feature” for blogs definitely exposes a need for me. I appreciate your encouragement @micheleweber and have purposed to do that now. So what shall it be? I have just read this scripture, “One generation will commend your works to another…” (Psalm 145:4). I have thought about that general direction but a scripture sounds so serious, and although I am sometimes serious, as I look back on my life I find so much that is so much fun and funny! I came to the city as the most naïve country girl. For example, while working as a clerk for a state department, a supervisor asked me for plain paper. I gave him one sheet! I quickly recognized by the look on his face that I had goofed. So, being quick on the draw, I probably gave him another dozen or so! How they must have laughed at me! Oh, Man, how Government would tighten its belts if I had been the boss! So I have decided to use the following guide as a feature for “Sweet Aroma.” I will write of incidents regarding my childhood, family, career, goof-ups, and successes. I will relate my first and only experience with a cigarette, the only time I ever drank coffee, what a dummy I was even though I was valedictorian, my first and only love (fortunately with the man who is my husband still), and the benefits of a country church. And I would tell of times when Jesus intervened in my life, and the blessings of being obedient to Him and his Word. As I pursue that thought I have plenty of stories to laugh about as well as plenty of advice to give! Hope I don’t end up giving advice to laugh about! With that I am kicking off my feature called, “Sugar, and Spice, and Most Things Nice.” Now that I have a feature, what do I do with it!?
I want to pay tribute to wonderful people I have known, the wonderful country in which I live, the communities in which I have lived, the churches who have claimed me as their own, the God who sends shivers down my back when I really give him a portion of my time—well, maybe not shivers but tears flow easily in some of those most priceless times.
