The Sweet Smell of Spring—Word-Filled Wednesday

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday hosted by Susan at Forever His. Take a look, and be inspired by pictures and the verses of Scripture that make them live.

I took a long walk on Monday. The air was filled with the sweet smells of honeysuckle and lilac—the smell of spring. Spring is a sensory illustration of God's promise to bring new life where there was only death, to bring abundance where there was only emptiness. The trees of spring remind me of the promise of Psalm 138:8, NIV: "The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever — do not abandon the works of your hands."


  1. I LOVED this...the honeysuckle vines are blooming here, too...and the smell is divine!

  2. Wow, a word I needed to hear today. AWESOME...

  3. He will surely fulfill His purposes for us and they are good plans and purposes for His glory rather than just our comfort...I love spring but am still sneaking bulbs in as we are coming to the end of Autumn.....I put Autumn pictures up in my blog this week..........comes of being a true southerner.

  4. Love the picture and the verse you shared. Happy WFW!
