Smelling Spring

Gratitude Day 243

Thurs., Apr. 4, 2019

1 Corinthians 12:17 – If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?

There’s a different smell in the air. It’s the smell of spring.

Fresh.

New.

Dirt.

Maybe wet.

Ice cream.

Charcoal.

Baby lambs.

Fresh sheets off the line.

Coffee as the sun peaks out.

Last year’s leaves.

Meat on the grill.

Anticipation of things to come.

Breathe in deep. Spring is here. Drink every old and new smell this season.

For the smells of spring, I am grateful.

We may see the signs of spring. And we feel the warmer weather. But do we celebrate the new smells of spring? Awaken our senses today. Help us drink long and deep of this season of promise. Amen.

Blessings –
