Amy Lillard's Blog Relay and Amish Giveaway












Welcome to LEG #1 of the Courting Emily Blog Relay. This is the first stop with an excerpt from the book. I have to admit, as a complete passage, this is one of my favorite parts of the story.
Just a little set up: Emily has been coming over to the Riehl’s to help them. Elam’s dad was kicked in the head by a cantankerous milk cow the year before and he has been reduced to near childlike behavior. Even worse, he has problems, sleeping, walking, and with everyday activities, leaving Elam to serve as head of the family. Emily feels it’s her duty to help this family in need. After all, she’s the bishop’s daughter. But for Elam to admit that his family even needs support is beyond his tolerance, regardless of how desperately they do.
Hope you enjoy this peek into Courting Emily!

Elam took a deep breath as he came across the hill in the pasture and saw the buggy in the side yard. A deep calming breath. What was she doing here again?
Jah, his mamm had told him that Emily Ebersol would be stopping by today, but somewhere in the back on his mind, he’d hoped she wouldn’t show.
His heart pounded a little harder in his chest the closer he got to the house. He would have to apologize, have to come up with some reason why he had acted so surly toward her. He’d have to come up with something other than the truth.
How could he tell her that he had loved her for as long as he could remember, though he knew even longer than that she had been in love with Luke Lambright?
He couldn’t remember the first time he had ever seen Emily Ebersol, but he could certainly remember the first time he’d noticed her. She was ten and he was fourteen, in his last year of school. He’d tried so hard that year to gain her attention, but even then, Luke Lambright was the one she loved.

My whoopie pie family

When I got on facebook I didn't know I would find so many people that loved the same things I did. I told myself after two special people I got close too passed away that I wasn't going to get close to anybody esle but I did am glad I did cause without these people I don't know where I would had ended up .I don't remember how I got in the group but I know who accepted me in the group it was a very special and sweet woman we all know her by whoopie pie Pamela. I am so glad that I got in the group I love y'all as much as I love my sisters and brother. Y'all are stuck with me and I am stuck with y'all. 
Sarah Price and the rest of the authors that took time out for me by sending me the books and stuff. There is one other special woman that is gone on to be with the Lord that Igot real close too that includes her mama. Now to the one that surprised me with the wall hanging picture and the whoopie pie cup. When you came in the group we started being friends right away I don't have to say who this person is.  I love everything about the group

Christ is born.

In Luke 2:3-18 it said. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.And Joseph also went up from Galilee,out of the city of Nazareth,into Judea,unto the city of David,which is called Bethlehem;(because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife,being great with child. And so it was,that,while they was there, the days was accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son,and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,and laid him in a manger;because there was no room for them in the inn. and there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field,keeping watch over their flock by night. And,lo,the angel of the Lord came upon them,and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them,Fear not: for,behold,I bring you good tidings of great joy,which shall be to all people.For unto you is born this day in the city of David,which is Christ the Lord.And this shall be a sign unto you;Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes,lying in a manger.And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven,the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem,and see this thing which is come to pass,which the Lord hath made known unto us.And they  came with haste,and found Mary,and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it,they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
