Want to be like the Amish?

Many of you would like to live more like the Amish — so if you admire their faith — strengthen yours.
If you admire their family life — spend more time with your family.
If you admire their sense of commitment — deepen yours.
If you admire their sense of community spirit — build one.
If you admire their quality merchandise — make quality.
If you admire their humility — be humble.
If you admire their unselfishness — put others first.
If you admire their honesty — be honest.
If you admire their willingness to help those in need — help the needy.
If you admire their land stewardship — take care of yours.
If you admire their deep character and enduring values — live them.

I too, love many of the qualities of the Amish. However, I love the assurance of Salvation and air conditioning in Ms. summers too.LOL

Happy New Year, friend. I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

You and me both Mrs Trixi!

I found this on another blog, she found it on a calendar...it makes sense to me. I've always admired the sense of strong family ties and communities they live out, but there are many other cultures that do the same.

I'm a do-er kind of person. Of course, I tend to always be watching the other side of the fence, too. If they can do, I certainly don't see why we can't -- with that wonderful assurance of Salvation (and that air conditioning!)
