I am thankful for my church family. Almost two years ago, our lives were changed when my wonderful husband was called to be a pastor. We never dreamed it would happen in the way that it did. But we saw God's hand in every step of the process. The last two years have been wonderful as we have come to know/love the wonderful people of our congregation. We have been through births, deaths, and many things in between. We have laughed together, worked together, studied together, served together, worshipped together, and cried together.
They have been wonderful to our family. They have been patient, loving, and accepting to all of us as we have "learned the ropes" of being a pastor, a pastor's wife, and pastor's children. They have accepted us with open arms, and loved us despite our deficiencies. They have never put undo pressures on myself or my children. They go above and beyond to be a blessing to us all, and we love and appreciate them for it. I am very thankful for each and every member of our church family. Knowing them, and serving alongside of them has greatly enriched our lives.
