I am in love with the weather this past week-it is as if the heavens are smiling down on the Lowcountry… dropping high nineties back into the more comfortable 80’s with ( most importantly) much lower humidity. First time in many years that the start of school coincided with more early fall-like conditions ( especially in the back-to-school early mornings)!
My favorite time lately has been watching the afternoon and/ evening thunderstorm showers arrive … bringing softer breezes and lighter rains. The kind that makes the world smell so fresh … like taking clean laundry out of the dryer or off the line. A fresh breath of air that seems to makes the world feel and smell cleaner.
I hope the following story is readable for everyone-it is one of my favorite stories-but after two posts to prepare for yesterday-I just didn’t have the energy to retype the whole story again.
Isn’t that the most comforting thought in the world that a tiny child, fighting for her life, remembers God … “that the smell of fresh rain smelled like God when she would lay her head on His chest?”
So until tomorrow… On earth we have only five senses but I suspect that a whole new world of senses will be open to us in our next life, don’t you? And if God’s scent is the fresh smell after a rain shower I will be ecstatic!
