Bottle It

I often smell things that I wish I could bottle up and keep forever. I feel like in my life of chaos right now, God has blessed me with some of those smells this past week in order to remind me of simple pleasures and small but meaningful blessings.

Minced and scattered corn stalks
Rotting, wet Autumn leaves
The last lawn mow of the year
Burning leaves
Night air (yes, it has a smell)
I have been stressed out and caught up in what our future will or will not bring and have forgotten my love of God's creations in nature. I'm so grateful he reminded me.
