A Beautiful Amish Quote


I saw this on the Amish America website and thought it should be shared. I love it!
We realize that not everyone is cut out to be one of the plain people. Many have not the opportunity; but here is the challenge:
If you admire our faith — strengthen yours.
If you admire our sense of commitment — 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.
— an Amish man writing in Small Farm Journal, Summer, 1993

Go ahead and share it, plaingrl. Sorry, you're having trouble with the link, works fine here. Just Google 'Amish America' if you want to visit that site.

Have a great weekend! :)
