A story that will touch your heart
An Amish Christmas Promise by Jo Ann Brown is the first installment in Green Mountain Blessings series. I enjoyed reading this touching Amish story. Carolyn Wiebe is a woman who is doing what it takes to keep her niece, Rose Ann and nephew, Kevin safe from their abusive father. Kevin and Rose Ann are active, kind children. I like that Carolyn is teaching them about God, the Bible and how to live a life of faith. Michael Miller is an Amish carpenter from Harmony Creek Hollow is not sure what he wants to do. He feels unsettled and unsure if he wishes to become baptized in the Amish faith. He had a woman break his heart and is wary of trusting another with his heart. Carolyn and the kids were doing well until the flood waters destroyed their home. They lost everything but Carolyn manages to stay upbeat and calm (she is a better person than me). Carolyn believes that God does things for a reason and that He will provide for them. There are good life lessons and messages in An Amish Christmas Promise. We get to see the devastating effects of hurricane floodwaters and how a community can come together to help each other in a time of need. We see how life can change in an instant. It was interesting to learn about Mennonite Disaster Services and Amish Helping Hands. These are wonderful organizations with thoughtful, hardworking volunteers. There are three phrases that I wanted to share from the An Amish Christmas Promise. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart” and “God is always watching over you” are two that I want to remember. The third one is “It’s not an easy task to ask others for help”. I am guilty of this because I dislike asking for assistance. An Amish Christmas Promise is a poignant story.
