If you can’t…


A beautiful reminder that just one does make a difference… ~Bette A. Stevens, Maine author http://www.4writersandreaders.com

Sacred Touches

And if you live anywhere like I do where it’s insanely hot right now help keep those who have to be outside hydrated. In our area the temps will be at 109 degrees Fahrenheit and higher for days and days. Also if you can find a group who takes fans to those who have no AC, please donate one. You might check with your local fire departments. When my husband worked for our fire department, they took fans to folks all summer. And while I’m on a kind of soap box, please thank our firefighters, police officers, and first responders when you can because they put themselves on a line of defense and protection for us every day, and some of them may not return home afterwards. Thanks!

COMPASSION a poem by Bette A. Stevens


compassion-poem-bas-2017Compassion is…

Compassion in life is a beautiful thing. But exactly what is compassion? I’ve always thought of compassion as love in action. After writing the poem COMPASSION, I searched Google to find a definition. The synonyms fit perfectly into my preconceived notion for the poem because they not only included love and mercy, each synonym requires action (stirring) on our part to metamorphose the idea of compassion into the realty of compassion.

May compassion reign in our hearts and hands.

~ Bette A. Stevens

Compassion in life is a beautiful thing
Sharing its beauty gives others their wings
Stirring love into each little thing that we do
Is sure to help their dreams and our dreams come true
