On my way to Intercourse, PA…


Today on my way to the library…a common occurrence in Lancaster County…

Usually there are one or two Amish at the library but today there were at least a dozen. Paradise Park was loaded with Amish too…picnicking and playing softball.  I was wondering why so many were out and about rather than working …it’s only Thursday, after all.  I found out it’s Ascension Day…the 40th day after Easter and the day they believe Jesus physically ascended into heaven after his resurrection.  Apparently it’s a day of rest or visiting.  Just read (and saw) many go on large outings for picnics, fishing or softball. They sure were friendly and seemed very happy today.
