Years ago, when I was a newlywed, my mother-in-law made a comment that I’ve never forgotten. “Spring,” she said, “is beautiful in everyone’s backyard.” At the time, my backyard consisted of a tiny apartment balcony and it was anything but beautiful. I listened, though, and went out to buy some potted plants. And voila! She was right! Sometimes I think God shows off a little during this season, giving us a hint of what’s to come in Heaven.
Spring is…just…the best, isn’t it? Especially this spring, after a very long and rainy winter. I don’t even mind spring cleaning—not so much. It feels good to throw open the windows and get some fresh air into the house, some fresh space in the closets.
And that’s what’s been going on with the Amish Wisdom this week—the team has given the blog a “spring cleaning.” We’ve tightened up a few things to provide a little more visual space and remove some clutter. We have some new features in store that need a little room of their own!
To those of you faithful readers, you’re in luck. The best features will remain intact, along with additional giveaways. A popular new feature, “Growing Up Amish,” comes in weekly on Thursdays from Maryann Kinsinger, who was raised in a loving Old Order Amish home. And we’ve got lots more author/reader interactions planned, so let us know who you want to hear more about. We’ll get right on it!
After all, that’s what Amish Wisdom is all about—connecting readers and authors…and good books.
