Hello my dears..
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend..
We headed out early on Friday after we had taken Sammi in to my Moms.
It turned into a lovely sunny day... Mountains in the distance..
There are several big rivers ...
We followed the St. John River most of the way and then the Tobique River..
After having a lovely evening with them and their family and a good nights sleep we went across the border to the USA...
Our friends told us that some Amish folks had moved into Northern Maine and that they had a shop or two..
We happened to be able to drive by ..
Be still my heart.... grin. .
I so love the Amish people..
Is this not a beautiful sight??
We pulled into their shop which sells steel roofing..
One dear lad came over to the car and invited the men in to see their work..
The men actually were more interested in the new way of collecting sap from the maple trees.. See the blue bags..
It was the first time that they had not seen tin buckets being used.
The lad said that they heard that the plastic type is coming in and will be used for collecting sap..
I wonder why....
In back is their sweet church...
It says FRIENDS over the door..
We did some shopping and enjoyed lunch out and when we returned home this guy was waiting for us..
Such a pretty cat:-)
We were so blessed to attend two church services with them..
We enjoyed it so much. The music was wonderful and the presence of the Lord was awesome..
There were friends attending the church who I had grown up with and not seen for so long.. Such a joyous reunion..
Just imagine what heaven will be like..
Eternity with the One who died for us and glad reunions with dear ones who have gone on before.. smile..
They sang a song that has stayed in mind ever since..
I 've come too far to look back
My feet have walked through the valley
I've climbed mountains, crossed rivers
dessert places Ive known
But I 'm nearing the home shore
The redeemed are rejoicing
Heavens angels are singing
I 've gone too far to look back....
That is only the chorus but you can look it up on YouTube..
The Hoppers sing it, I think..
Anyway, dear hearts have a blessed week and take care...
So glad you dropped by and looking forward to hearing from you all..
