Amish Worldview

Another Amish reflection on time from the book "Amish Peace" by Suzanne Woods Fisher - "One Amish man joked that if he were meant to plow at night, God would have put headlights on a horse. The Amish respect natural limitations: sunlight and seasons, hunger and fatigue." pg 86

I guess I follow these natural limitations somewhat. For example I hate to go somewhere at night. After I put the goats to bed I just want to stay in. I do need to work on the fatigue area - don't usually quit when I'm tired - that is unless it is 8:00 at night.
