Gifts are my LOVE LANGUAGE! I LOVE getting gifts, treats, notes, (YOUR COMMENTS, =) etc. I normally try to MAKE SURE that my family KNOWS when it's my birthday. =D
So, I well remember the SPECIAL things that our AZ church family did for our family when Phillip pastored the Gospel Center church there. They did all kinds of Neat things. One year they helped me pay off my keyboard. Another year they reached out and gave gifts to our children, gave us a NICE food pounding, and they sent us away as a family to a VERY NEAT log cabin in woodsy Payson, AZ, etc. SUCH FUN memories!!! These things they did for us...made me feel so LOVED and made me want to give more than 100% to God and our church family. =)
So, that is what inspired us to WANT to do something SPECIAL all this month to show our own Pastor Jimmy, Sis. Farly, and girls how much we love and appreciate them!
This past Sunday was Sunday #3...and the people were to bring a card expressing their love and appreciation and some chocs. or a treat if they wanted to.
~Since Pastor Jimmy and family LOVE my apple pie, I decided to make them one and put a cross and 2 churches on the top. =) ~
But, 4 different dear families included Phillip and I. We were so surprised and thought it was very SWEET of them!
~Bro. Edgar and Sis. Joanna gave us a NICE note from them, and yummy chocolates!~
Please pray that God will use these 2 precious girls for HIM! =)
Jesus gave us a good Lord's day, and there was a great response to honoring our pastor, wife and family which THRILLED Phillip and I. ~
I must have been too tired to get pictures yesterday, for I don't even have one. =(
But, it was a Delicious meal and we had such a nice visit with Pastor Jimmy, Sis. Farly, and girls. =)
Please keep praying for our pot-luck dinner that is to be this Sunday, Lord willing. Everyone seems excited about it, and is helping bring in food. =)
