Emma's Holy Answers

I know I haven't been on a lot...too much gardening to do and helping my neighbors learn to be holy. However, I have decided to take time out of my busy, busy schedule to lead you people into the ways of holiness. That is why I have started this thread, which I am sure will last for a long time. I know you will greatly appreciate my taking my time to do this. (I am sure I will get so many questions, I may have to interview for some help to answer them, if there is anyone here holy enough to actually help me out, which I doubt, so I will probably have to do it all myself). At any rate, I will take it step by martyred step, painfully and woefully taking gobs of my precious time (or 15 minutes whichever comes first) to help you poor misled people out. Who will be first?

Dear Emma, is the Internet bad? What about Forums like this one?

I thought that Amish weren't allowed stuff such as this?

Oh, and where do you get the Electricity to run the Computers?

Hello Ron,

The internet is very evil. Forums are okay as long as you only get them in email format. I use my neighbors computer and electricity, so it doesn't count. Are you finding fault with me? It's that old hobgoblin of consistency that you are trying to pigeonhole me with. Well, it won't work for somebody who thinks half naked women on internet is okay but half naked women on TV is wrong!

You know I use my neighbors computer just like the Amish use their neighbors phone and rent car drivers. So, it doesn't count!

I wouldn't go into a barn owned by an Electric Amish person!

You know it Trouvere. Anybody who puts Electric and Amish in the same sentence will burn on the Lake O' Fire!

This very holy Amish woman is up way past her bedtime. I will be making breakfast very early tomorrow, but I will find some time to answer your questions tomorrow. I know you will be in line waiting. Please be patient and I will get to you as soon as I can. Take a number please.

Amen Emma I will be up early as well.As soon as the garden is tilled and all the cows milked walk over to the neighbors and borrow their computer
and drop me a line but only if the eggs are picked and the bisquits made.
I would not want to say I helped you become a slacker.You know what the
bible says about the sloth.

Know you must arise at sun up or before to get that cow milked but I heard your new neighbor has a computer so try to make friends as soon as possible...You might need to write us and telling us about those horses and buggies up your way...
