Our Pastor

This pastor appreciation poem reminds us of the importance of pastors in our lives and of how we should respond.

Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes, 
And gone where her feet have trod? 
Have you ever thought of what she means to us, 
And on your knees, given thanks to God?

Have you ever told her thank you, 
For being there, when times are tough, 
For comforting words and fervent prayers 
When trials come and the storms of life are rough?

She answers our calls in the middle of the night 
And tells us not to worry, for she will be there. 
She gives up her comfort of quiet rest 
And comes with prayers of comfort to share.

Have you ever thought to say thank you Pastor, 
For preaching God's word to help us understand, 
For all the times she has asked for things 
That will lend us a helping hand?

When you pray, put her at the top of the list 
And ask the Lord to surround her with loving care, 
To give her strength and walk with her, 
To help her with the burdens that she must bear.

Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes, 
And gone where her feet have trod? 
Have you ever thought of what she means to us, 
And on your knees, given thanks to God?
