i've been reading a book
by suzanne woods fisher recently.
the name of the book is
the cover invites you
with the statement
"simple wisdom for a complicated world"
many people come to the amish and ask
"how can i become amish?"
they are stressed by their lifestyles
and the pressure of life.
in the introduction of the book,
"uncle amos" says...
"if you admire our faith, strengthen yours.
if you admire our sense of committment, deepen yours.
if you admire our community spirit, build your own.
if you admire the simple life, cut back.
if you admire deep character and enduring values, live them yourself"
wise advice uncle amos!
here is a tip to get you going...
Jesus is the Prince of Peace
follow Him and all of those things will be yours
because He is the centre of
the amish way of life.
it was an interesting read.
i love a good book
and it's been very good weather
to curl up somewhere comfy and read.
