ELMER HAS A FEW THINGS TO SAY
Someone asked how Sarah is doing being with child. She is doing well. Took a while, but she got over the morning sickness. I don't know how women going through that morning sickness. Good thing men don't go through it, we wouldn't know what to do.
When then baby is do is a debate. The doctor and midwife say in November. Anna says in October. So we are saying the end of October or first part of November. Micheal (Jean's son) and I would kind of like it if she (or he) was born on our birthday, October 31st. Only the good Lord knows the date for sure, so we wait. As long as Sarah and the baby come through in good health, that is what matters.
Anna told me I should maybe stay away from the subject of buggies for a while. But, I am not taking her advice, like I sometimes don't. It gets me in trouble sometimes, I hope not this time.
The buggy in the picture above is the buggy Amish boys get when they turn 16 and go through their rummage. Sometimes the parents give them the horse and buggy on their 16th birthday. Sometimes the young man has to buy it himself.
When Anna and I were rummage age, girls didn't have such buggies, but with the change of the times some of the girls get one, today. Not many of them, but some do.
Marilyn took this picture and the light was not the best at the time. You will note that the young folks in that buggy are not Amish. That was Anna and my son John's buggy. When Jean and David found themselves with three son's and two buggies for the boys, John loaned them his as being married, he won't need it anymore.
So, in the picture, is an Amish buggy driven by an Old Order Mennonite young man. I know the small one in the buggy is Jean and David's son, David Jr. Am not sure if Michael or Edward are driving the buggy. I know for sure it isn't Thomas as he is much taller than they are.
So I am not saying anymore about buggies this time. I did want you to see the buggy the young men, mostly, use during their rummage.
Trust God's Wisdom,
Thank you, seems so little to say for all you have done for me. The load you have taken off of me. I am feeling much better regarding my panic attacks, I still have them but not anywhere as bad as they were.
You all have been so generous to me both money wise and prayer wise. I really appreciated it. You all are in my prayers.
Blessings to you all,
