Tunnel Vision

This photo is no reflection on Emanuel or Sherry or anyone else. Instead I need this reminder, that none of us see the whole perspective or picture of any given subject. We only see through a tunnel. The first picture here is the center of the focus. It looks like husband and wife had a verbal fight and they have turned their backs toward each other. It also looks like Emanuel is crying and Sherry is writing down stuff, less she forgets.

But the bottom picture is the true perspective, the over all of what is actually happening. The Graber man is on the phone, Emanuel was asking me a question and Sherry is interviewing Alvin Zook. She is writing down the details of his secret BBQ recipe.

Again this is a reminder for me not pass judgement or presume I see the whole picture.
And I apologize to Emanuel and his family for using him when he doesn't look his best...

  1. Is that Sherry Gore? I didn't realize she was married :) I knew she was at one point but I wondered if maybe he passed away. So I'm glad she has a husband and that they aren't fighting! haha. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures Katie. Just makes me want to be in FL all the more!

  3. In Burkesville, Kentucky I was considered a graus widow. This means I "have" no husband, but he is sill living so I am not free to marry another.

  5. Kate, not in our church services. Always in English, though every now and then some songs are sung in Dutch.

  6. Around the home is dutch spoken or just some families know it? I guess I never gave much thought to the Beachy Amish church speaking dutch too.

  9. Why so much mystery and vagueness around the missing husband. Honesty is better.

  10. Maybe the husband was abusive and she doesn't want to talk about him. Sad that she isn't allowed to get remarried again.
