#WingedJewels . . . We Never grew food without BEES.”

Please read this. It is so very important that all of us do what we can to save the bees. 🙂



“We once grew food without chemicals.
We Never grew food without BEES.”

~ Elise BC ~

“In addition to gathering nectar to produce honey, honey bees perform a vital second function – pollination, making them a critical component of today’s agricultural market. In fact, about one-third of the human diet is derived from insect-pollinated plants, and honey bees are responsible for 80 percent of this pollination….

Without the honey bees’ pollination work, the quantity and quality of many crops would be reduced and some would not yield at all. According to a 2000 Cornell University study, the increased yield and quality of agricultural crops as a result of honey bee pollination is valued at more than $14.6 billion per year. And although other insects can pollinate plants, honey bees are premier pollinators because they are available throughout the growing season and pollinate a wide range of crops.”

A life without delight is only half a life.



“Beauty does not linger; it only visits.
Yet beauty’s visitation affects us and invites us into its rhythm;
it calls us to feel, think and act beautifully in the world:
to create and live a life that awakens the Beautiful.
A life without delight is only half a life.”

~ John O’Donohue

1366. The thing is, at the end of the day you still have to face yourself. Dave Pelzer

Is anybody happier
because you passed their way?
Does anyone remember
that you spoke to them today?

The day is almost over,
and its toiling time is through,
Is there anyone that will utter
a kind word about you?

Can you say tonight in parting,
with the day that’s slipping fast,
that you helped a single person
of the many that you passed?

Is a single heart rejoicing
over what you did or said?
Does the one whose hopes were fading
now with courage look ahead?

Did you win the day or lose it?
Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness,
or a scar of discontent?

As you close your eyes in slumber,
do you think that God will say,
“you have earned one more tomorrow
by the good you did today?”
