I must admit that I had no idea what all you had planned for us yesterday during the morning service. Thank you so much for our Pastor Appreciation Sunday. I usually at least know what is going on in our church but this took me by complete surprise.
When David Allison told me that he had left me a brick I had no idea what he was talking about. Then you gave me the notes written on the paper in the form of bricks. What a blessing! We have loved reading them and seeing what you had to say. I am so blessed and privileged to be the pastor of Vision Baptist Church. You are wonderful and a gift for God to us.
Thank you for the very generous love offering, the kind words, gift cards and everything else that was done. Thank you for the wonderful gifts that you gave Betty. I told her last night that maybe the sweetest thing for me was that you were so kind to her. She is the light of my life and my best friend. When I see her blessed it blesses me. Thank you so much.
Thank you for the good attendance –we had 112 in Sunday School and 132 in church. You listened so well as I preached and that was a tremendous answer to prayer. I was concerned that the message would seem so hard to you as we discussed the problems, pressures and tribulations that we have in life but you were right in there. It was as an old friend used to say tight but right.
I would like to invite you to ask for a CD of the last three messages if you were not able to be there. I spoke on how much respect we should give our pastor having no idea what you had planned for yesterday. Then yesterday we looked at how to deal with all the troubles we encounter on the way to Heaven. It was a two part message and so I hope you will get both CDs.
Thank you once again. I love you very much and love our church. God bless each of you.
