Sylvia Yoder came back from Indiana with a book of Amish proverbs and shared them for choir devotions:
It may be difficult to wait on the Lord,
but it is worse to wish you had.
Faith is the bridge over which we can cross
all the unknown waters of tomorrow.
The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention.
Teaching children to count is fine,
but teaching them what counts is better.
When you get to your wit’s end,
you’ll find God lives there.
Generosity leaves a much better taste than stinginess.
He who has no money is poor;
he who has nothing but money is even poorer.
