The Sounds, Sights, and Scents of Spring and Summer

The Sounds, Sights, and Scents of Spring and Summer

Spring and summer seems to fill the air like a warm hug, erasing the coldness of winter. We hear it in a chorus of frogs and the babbling of brooks running free from a winter thaw. We smell it in the scent of blossoms and fresh grass. We see it as trees bud and leaves burst forth. These are all the wonders of new life emerging. We feel it in the warmth of sunshine under blue skies and longer hours of daylight.

 

Take time to rejoice in spring and summer and use your senses to experience them. Here are a few things to find. Add more to the list related to where you live:

  • Babbling brooks
  • Chirping birds
  • Spring showers
  • Baby animals like fluffy lambs bleating and calves mooing
  • The black and yellow as bees buzz
  • Baby chicks chirping
  • Lawnmowers cutting grass
  • Gentle breezes rustling the leaves
  • Frogs croaking in chorus
  • Bats hitting baseballs, jump ropes twirling, and other spring and summer activities

Senses of Heaven

These sounds, sights, and scents make me break out the book of Revelation and turn to chapters 4, 7, 14, and 22, to read about sounds and sights in heaven. There’s a beautiful rainbow over God’s throne, trumpets blasting, a multitude in white robes, the roar of a voice that sounds like rushing waters, angels lapping wings and flying, and a new song sung before the throne. These are sounds of joy.
