The Bridge Builder Poem
An old woman going a lone highway came
in the evening, cold and gray,
to a chasm vast, both deep and wide.
The old woman crossed in the twilight dim;
the swollen stream was as naught to her;
but she stopped when safe on the farther side
and built a bridge to span the tide.
"Old woman," said a fellow pilgrim near,
"you are wasting your strength in labor here;
Your journey will end with the closing day,
you never again will pass this way.
You've crossed the chasm deep and wide;
Why build you this bridge at eventide?"
The laborer lifted her old gray head,
"Good friend, in the path I have come," she said,
"There followeth after me today
a youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm which has been naught to me
to that young man may a pitfall be.
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim.
Good friend, I am building this bridge for him."

Betty Bethards had the priviledge of being told her purpose in life.
It was "To Live Love"
Betty Bethards was a teacher of teachers.
Those who have been touched either by her lectures, books or tapes
have received the benefit of inheriting that purpose.
We are all here to Live Love.
Take the teachings and if they make your life much more loving then know that you
are living them.
You are Living Love.
Betty Bethards spoke her truth and always said she was like johnny appleseed.
She planted the seeds of truth and love and it wasn't her responsiblity to wait to
make the seeds grew.
They would grow if they landed on fertile ground.
Thanks for your open hearts.
Live your dreams.
