“… do not grow weary in doing good.” (I Thessalonians 3:13, ESV)
Yesterday, we had an adventure.
That is not just code for “get lost and waste gas.” I’ve written before that one way I stretch my family’s food budget is to shop surplus/salvage stores. These are often run by Amish or Mennonite families. I’ve missed these stores now that we are in the big city. I’ve also missed my Amish dairy that sold raw milk, my Amish produce stand that sold organic fruits and veggies, and my Amish source for grass-fed meats and cage-free eggs. I also kind of missed the Amish. While I try not to romanticize the Amish life– they’re human like the rest of us, and a dite prone to legalism– there is a lot I admire about them, and the Amish we’ve interacted with have always been kind, warm, and friendly.
