Suzanne Woods Fisher has written several Amish novels; her love for them and knowledge of them is evident in her books. Amish Proverbs is a collection of proverbs that the Plain People or Amish use.
This collection of Amish Proverbs holds more than 200 sage sayings.
Amish Proverbs is a small hardback book the size is 6 inches by 6 inches. I have found that small books like small packages can contain a precious jewel.
This book should not be placed on a coffee table to look pretty; but it should be read, savored, enjoyed.
Often while reading this book I laughed out loud. I noticed while reading it that I felt my body relaxing, it is a book of gentleness and peace.
There are many photographs throughout the book, usually one every other page. Some examples of the photo's are of nature, Amish life, quilts, and hands. Have you noticed that hands speak honestly about a person's life?
Intermixed through the book are stories in addition to the proverbs. These stories are of people that have learned through an experience about what matters most in life.
Suzanne Woods Fisher has written such a wonderful book! This book would make a great gift.

My favorite proverb from the book:
"Choose your love, and love your choice."

Blissful Reading!

Enjoyed your Blog today Annette,

I'm reading "The Genesis Record" by Henry Morris. It is a narrative commentary on the book of Revelation from a pure and literal point of view.

Mom used to always say "Don't count your chickens before they hatch." I've always been a hopeful person but have been disappointed many times when people did not follow through with what they told me. I always remember Mom's little saying when that happens. :) Does this qualify me for a free book? :)
