There are no good answers to the question, “If I had to lose one of my senses, which would I choose?” We are sensual beings, created to enjoy tasting, touching, smelling, hearing, and seeing. I am so deeply grateful for pleasure.
Thank You for deep enjoyment that is possible as I experience life smell by smell, sight by sight, touch by touch, sound by sound, and taste by taste.
I praise you [God], for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads in every place the fragrance that comes from knowing him. 2 Corinthians 2:14 (NRSV)
Invitation To Pray:
Use your senses to enjoy this moment! This prayer honors our Creator who made us with such love.
