Because I Grew Up in Lancaster County

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I know the difference between the Amish and Mennonite just by looking at the buggies.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I learned to drive through the Sunday traffic of bikes, scooters, and buggies.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I ate fresh vegetable and fruits in the summer from variety of stands all less than five miles away from my house.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I smelled manure all day everyday. Well most days.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I went to the mall to hang out, but not until I got my license.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I would drive to Lancaster to see a movie because that’s where the cute boys were.

Because I grew up in Lancaster County I learned the value of family.

Because I left Lancaster County I learned that most people know nothing about the Amish or Mennonites but are very interested.

Because I left Lancaster County I learned that traffic everywhere else is cars and cars and cars.

Because I left Lancaster County I learned to accept people who aren’t “mainstream” Christians and that real followers of Jesus don’t judge every person they meet.

Because I left Lancaster County I learned that people out there actually agree and have the same beliefs and thoughts that I do.

Because I left Lancaster County I found that people aren’t always friendly.

Because I left Lancaster County I can do more than hang out at the mall on a Sunday, stuff that will be open later than 6pm.

Because I left Lancaster County I found there’s a whole world out there waiting for me to explore.

 

This is a little bit different for me today but it gives you a different little insight into my life an the way I grew up. Let me know what you think!

XOXO,

Mary.
