Simply marvelous! ~ Bette A. Stevens

Sacred Touches

All goes back to the earth,
and so I do not desire
pride of excess or power,
but the contentments made
by men who have had little:
the fisherman’s silence
receiving the river’s grace,
the gardener’s musing on rows….
~Wendell Berry

To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk
or an evening saunter…
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird’s nest
or a wildflower in spring —these are
some of the rewards of the simple life.
~John Burroughs

The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. ~Psalm 19: 7   ✝

  1. Thanks for another reblog, Bette! Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  2. Thank you….So appropriate while I watch the snow falling down gently on the first day of Spring!

    • 37 degrees and sunny here in Central Maine today, but flurries on the way. We still have two feet of white hard pack on on the ground. This post gives me hope! Enjoy your weekend, Barbara and Happy Spring! ❤
