All Creation Gave Another Smell

The snowdrops, the first flower of the 2008 season, are here. I think that all creation now gives another smell, maybe a small taste, or a fresh reminder, of the rapture of our spirit when taken into the paradise of God.

Now I was come up in spirit through the flaming sword, into the paradise of God. All things were new; and all the creation gave unto me another smell than before, beyond what words can utter. I knew nothing but pureness, and innocency, and righteousness; being renewed into the image of God by Christ Jesus, to the state of Adam, which he was in before he fell. - George Fox
