fragrant as the lilacs


Ezekiel 20:40-42

 For on my holy mountain, the high mountain of Israel, declares the Sovereign LORD, there in the land all the people of Israel will serve me, and there I will accept them. There I will require your offerings and your choice gifts, along with all your holy sacrifices. I will accept you as fragrant incense when I bring you out from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will be proved holy through you in the sight of the nations.  Then you will know that I am the LORD, when I bring you into the land of Israel, the land I had sworn with uplifted hand to give to your ancestors.

The lilacs are blooming!  We live in a town where it seems that just about everyone has a lilac bush or sprawling hedge of lilacs,  this is just one of the most beautiful weeks here, all in bloom.  The little bees are so busy, harvesting, I can’t blame them its hard for me to keep away from decorating every room with fresh bouquets.  So gorgeous!
