World coming to an end?

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.

That's a pretty good piece of wisdom to remember.
Just when life seems most out of hand, something good can still come of it.
Our lives can seem so complicated, if we forget to put things in perspective. It is amazing how these little sayings remind us to focus on the basics- and the rest will fall into place.
And if you like those gentle reminders of Amish wisdom found in proverbial sayings, you will certainly enjoy this book:

A while back I did a radio interview with the author from California, Suzanne Woods Fisher. She has written a number of books, and this little compilation of Amish sayings is an enjoyable read- and it makes a perfect gift for friends.
You can find Amish Proverbs, Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life in many Christian Books stores, or on line at Amazon.

Jan Auburn, Cheryl Harner, Suzanne Woods Fisher and Greg Miller in Berlin, Ohio
Suzanne made a whirl-wind tour of mid-Ohio's Amish country last month. Her warm personality shines through her writings and it was a great pleasure when my friends and I met her in person.
I hope you have been enjoying the scenes from my last couple of Amish country posts, and the sayings- you'll find many more in Suzanne's heart-warming book.
