Iíve got a patchwork of beautiful faces in my mind as I contemplate fellowship. God has blessed me with a garden of Christian women who fill my life with the scent of His love! She-electrified shares my freckled skin; she smells of cinnamon and pours energy into my day. She-unruffled never seems to falter; she smells of chamomile and calms my spastic nature. She-spiritual-goddess teaches me Godís truth; she smells of roses and turns my eyes toward Him. She-sweet-sixteen looks closely into my life; she smells of wild flowers and motivates me to be like Christ. She-spiritual-powerhouse spills wisdom over me; she smells of the ocean-spray and guides me in the path of truth. She-humility helps deflate my waning pride; she smells of fresh bread and shows me how to be strong in Him. She-understanding only sees the best in me; she smells of dark chocolate and makes me feel good about the woman I am. She-nurturer reminds me of home; she smells of oak and keeps me grounded so I can grow. She-teacher developed understanding with me; she smells of mocha and is always good for a chat. She-older-sister reminds me of my childhood; she smells of vanilla and knows the person beyond the image. She-motivator encourages me in my vision; she smells of fresh cut grass and loves me unconditionally. These women are my friends; they are my sisters. They reveal Christ in different ways, and I can cherry-pick the best of their fruits. They have each changed me, and I would not be the woman I am today without them. They are my wonderful women of fellowship; they are my comrades in Christ! I thank God that He chose each woman to fill my life with the scent of His love.

Very unique way of describing the women who are in your circle of fellowship! I like the variety of personalities you wrote into your story and their strengths that add so much to your life.

Definitely a unique entry! I love the sensory images throughout. Would have liked maybe a bit more detail on some or all of them - you definitely left me wanting more!

I like your 'likenings' and can relate to them. Sensory images often come to mind when I think of friends and family - for example my sister-in-law, now with Christ in heaven, was like freshly laundered, lavendar-scented sheets stacked neatly in the linen closet.

I like the idea of the "patchwork of faces" that enter our minds when we think of fellowship. Your title is intriguing, too. Great job!

Hi: This is a very creative piece to show the mixtures of spiritual gifts and personalities of women in fellowship. I enjoyed it. It could be more inhanced by breaking up the one, long paragraph. That would make it a little easier to read. Great insight on your part...

A very creative way to depict the people who have impacted your life, making your fellowship with them a garden of wonderful experiences.
