Today I walked along the path that hugs the edge of our woods. It’s a little mown trail with wild flowers and a few sneaky brambles. It’s a dividing line between the laziness of the prairie grasses and the mysteries of the wood.
It’s May in Michigan and the promise of spring finally holds true.
A deep breath in confirms it.
The scent of wet soil, sunshine and wild cherry soar straight to my head. I can feel the sunshine in my feet as it warms the earth. I close my eyes letting the life all around me seep in.
I take it in. Warmth radiating in waves, spring breeze saturated with scent cooling my cheeks, my toes (free in their flip-flops) tickled by grasses, bird chattering, trilling and rejoicing.
Spring is here!
God’s glory everywhere- sensory exhilaration!
(May?! It’s now June and everything around is changing into summer mode…. Oh well! LOL!)
