Also, we believe that when our time comes, we too, will go to be with the Lord - that we will again see our friends and relatives. Any pain or suffering we have endured on the earth, also we will be over. Our times of sadness will be times of joy.
As we live our time on on earth, we should remember the good memories of our friends and relatives. Mourning, in our hearts, should only last a short time. The happy and pleasure of the time we had together should be the most important.
Carol asked if we participate in the "time change"? As humans we can go on the "time change", but it is hard to get cows, horses and other animals on the change.
We Amish run on standard time - most of the time. So most of our clocks are on standard time all year around. During day light savings time, we keep one that time, so if we are to meet someone or do something and we were given day light time, we are on time.
Animals must be fed and cows milked the same time. Ours are on standard time - all year around.
Jean and David do change their clocks with the time, but they have one clock that is on standard time all year around. They, too, have their animals on standard time. It sounds confusing, but somehow we always meet or do something at the same time. We are all on the same track during standard time.
Actually, we wish that there was one time all year around. We prefer standard time, but we know a lot of people like day light savings. Whatever one, but keep it all year round. Doubt we will every see it.
Jean is too polite to say anything when I say something wrong on my post. Anna is not. When I said Michael was Jean and David's first son to leave, Anna said what about Thomas? Anna is correct, Thomas was their first son to marry and leave their home. I apologize. Even though they didn't say anything, I believe I did not please Thomas and Ruth, either. Like I tell Anna, I can't remember all the children and grandchildren in our family much less Jean's. Anna says that is not excuse.
