In the last month, I've spent 4 weekends living in an Amish community. Waking to song birds, delicious meals on a wood cook stove, holding a precious 2-day old baby girl surrounded by 7 siblings, singing in German (Loblied), kneeling in prayer on hardwood floors, tears flowing/and hugs from women who love freely as Christ loved, humble men as Ministers, new foals, fresh kittens, straw-hat boys on bikes, shy girls in bonnets and buggies, and horse-drawn everything. God is present and much revered. I'm so blessed to be a part of their life.

I'll check in more, later.  Lord willing.

Until then, Aus Liebe (in love)
