How Old Are You Now?

What a GREAT DAY today!!!!!!! Every Sunday I'm amazed at how much I love this new ministry in the kitchen. I NEVER dreamt of taking on this role and never would have if Pastor Will hadn't approached me about it. I love it though.....and from the amount of positive feedback I'm getting apparently it was a good move. YEAH!!!!
SOoooooo speaking of Pastor Will....all of the leaders gathered today for a surprise 50th birthday party for him. It was great...for a man as nosy as he is..lol..if youu're reading this pastor...sorry....but, you know it's true, it was a miracle that we actually pulled the surprise off!! He had NOOOOO clue!! It was soooooo nice to spend a night surrounded by so many close friends and celebrating someone we all love so much. He's truly the definition of what a pastor is to me....so many are just unreachable and distant or they are so self absorbed in their own head and book knowledge that they are basically useless when it comes to actually mentoring and encouraging a church body. He's not that way at all....he's totally open, totally transparent and totally reachable. He is secure enough in himself and in his role as pastor that he also has no need to brag about his skills, his credentials or his connections....of which he has many....he's just himself and lets God do the rest.
Happy Birthday Pastor!!!

So in searching through My Husband Rocks subrscribers, I saw you read a few of your blogs and you seem really cool, mentioning Princess Bride right off the bat makes you awesome, but the fact that you are in ministry, love photgraphy, and write make me feel like we might get along. Anyway I'm just trying to make new friends and thought I would stop by and say hi!

What a blessing to have a pastor like the one you have! Someone who urges your to grow and expand, who has relationship, and can still lead respectfully, that is surely what God intended Pastors to be like. =]
