Sacred Touches

The birds they sing at break of day,
“Start again…” I hear them say.

Nourish beginnings,
let us nourish beginnings.
Not all things are blest,
but the seeds of all things are blest.
The blessing is in the seed.
~Muriel Rukeyser

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. ~John 12:24  ✝

  1. Lovely post–we must indeed force ourselves to begin or reaching the finish is impossible. And I love the pic. 🙂


  2. Wonderful, Bette and what a great picture! This reminded me to trust myself!


  3. Beautiful, and very inspirational.


  4. Perfect inspiration as I gaze out the window at nearly two feet of snow which a nasty blizzard was kind enough to drop on it’s way to the sea.


    • Stay safe and warm, Micki. Looks like we’ll luck out on this one; but then, we’re prepared for it, unlike so many Easterners to the south. Watching the news, and it’s quite a mess. Prayers for all those out there getting pounded upon. Hugs. ❤ Bette p.s. How's your new book coming along? I'm looking forward to reading some of your award-winning shorts very soon. 🙂


  5. I am reading this on a Saturday morning and thinking what a beautiful way to start the day.


  6. Inspiring! Thanks.


  7. Okay, missy, we’ll sing a duet that even the birds will envy. Thanks for the reblog, missy. 🙂 ❤
