Yesterday morning me and Baby Girl took a walk and my breath was literally taken away as we rounded the corner to a display of God's Glory. The German countrysde is beautiful. I think we stood there staring at the fields with the sun rising and the mountains in the background for at least 10 minutes. I just could not get over it. It looked like a Norman Rockwell painting. Anyway, it reminded me of olden days which makes me think of the Amish and whenever I think of the Amish I always think "I should have been born Amish". I think about the simplicity of their life and it seems so peaceful.
And, I know, I would miss things. I would really miss my dishwasher. I would miss music and my fiction books. I would miss Felicity :) If you never had any of that stuff then you wouldn't miss it though, right? My confession of the day is that I am jealous of the Amish. Maybe you think they get bored, but they live in a community where there is always someone to talk to or chores to do. Not to mention that I have a computer and TV and an almost one-year-old and I stay bored most of the time. In fact I am extremely bored right now which is why I am writing about wishing I was Amish :)
