An offering of thanks

An offering of Thanks and Praise
In the Old Testament incense were required for several offerings to God.  It is one area that is not used in worship of God as much in the modern age.  I have been in a Catholic church when the priest waves and incense over the people.  But to me that seems more like a blessing of the people and not offering the incense up to God. It was often added to the grain offerings to be a sweet aroma to God during the sacrificial process.
Incense offerings 
We are in a time of Lent right now.  We know and understand that Jesus death and resurrection has taken away the need for the sin offerings and offerings of atonement.  That has been replaced by a relationship with God through Jesus Christ his son.  I have received so many blessings lately and I've been feeling like my words just aren't enough.  So I offer up to God along with my prayers this sweet aroma.
