More than Manna



Saturday I made squash & apple soup and pumpkin dessert. The food tasted good and smelled even better. What are your favorite scents of fall?


  • Apple cider
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Soup simmering on the back of the stove
  • All of it!

For forty years, the Israelites ate manna in the desert. The same simple food day after day. No “eat the rainbow” for them. Yet they were fully nourished.

God could have met our need for food with simple manna. Instead he offers us a smorgasbord of fragrance and flavor.

Thanks be to God!bless soul pic

  1. Favourite smells, same as all year round…hot steel, burned oxygen and acetylene. The sharp tang of welding.

    Won’t be able to do it much longer, and I shall miss it.

  2. I don’t know much about welding, Andrew, but my great uncle (Norman Braton) wrote a textbook on it. To me, it’s light, not scent. Very useful light.

  3. I love the fragrance of fresh apples. Someone brought a box of them to church yesterday for everyone to help themselves. Yum.
    Yes, praise God for variety.

      Agreed, Wendy. My hubby threw an apple core in my car’s trash bag. My car smelled 100% better.

  4. I love apple/cinnamon … and I love the sight of pumpkins. 🙂 I love the feel of the breeze and the fragrance it brings, and the sight of the leaves falling. Jennifer and I sat outside in the cool air this morning … so nice to feel cool air.

      In terms of fragrances pleasing to God: I think kindness smells like cinnamon. Love smells like bread in the oven. Generosity smells like chocolate chip cookies.
