Pastor Appreciation




Okay, so I'm a little bit stoked!

Sunday the board of directors came to the platform and announced the plan to the church for Pastor Appreciation. They are sending us on a vacation --just Larry and I! A romantic one...it's going to be awesome. And that's not all...they are also going to be taking an offering to do some special projects in our home. Yippee!

We're also going to dinner with the board. Very excited...I love spending time with all of them, always. Can't get enough of it. You know a lot of pastors have the worst problem in the world with their board and I thank God that's not the case with us, in fact it's the opposite. We just love hanging out with them as much as possible.

The vacation and special project thing are going to be presented to us on Sunday night, November 23 at our annual Thanksgiving dinner and they are also celebrating the 7 year mark of us being the lead pastors here. Seven is a year of completion and I believe we have completed a season here and are on our way to a brand new season at Northside...a beautiful one. I'm so excited about what's to come. If you could have been there Sunday (and some of you were) you would see that what's taking place for us is really amazing.

Thanks for sharing my joy...it's been a long time coming. It really is true that weeping may endure the the night, but joy comes in the morning.

p.s. Six more miles walked/biked tonight. Beautiful weather here in Tampa right now!

I am really not sure how to get in. I just signed in with my Google account but it still denied me. How do I get in?

Are you having trouble with harrassing commenters? Ughh! I hate that, if that's what it is. So immature.

Yes, I do want to read...although I don't always make it over consistently on busy days, please add me.

Love ya
