The weather was rainy and chilly this weekend. After a couple of seventy degree days last week it seems we are back to normal temperatures. There were a couple of bright spots in an otherwise dreary weekend; one being the beautiful rainbow that graced our sky on Saturday afternoon, the other being the heavenly scent that I immediately drink in every time I open my front door. My winter daphne is in full bloom!
I know that scripture has many descriptions of the beauty of heaven, but I have been unable to find any scripture on the scent of heaven. I wonder if there is anyone else out there like me that thinks about things such as this. I am quite sure that much of the beauty on earth serves as a little glimpse of what is to come. If that is true, then the wonderful scents that we enjoy have to give some insight into the scent of heaven. What do you think?
I do wish I could make my pictures into scratch-and-sniff ones. Or maybe I could bottle the essence and send it to all of my friends. In any case, the only flaw that I can find with my winter daphne is that some of the leaves are yellowing. I am assuming that all of the rain has caused this. I hope the roots are not staying too wet. I would hate to loose this plant.
I only wish it were warm enough outside to open up the windows and let the beautiful fragrance drift throughout my house!
