06 Mar A Gracious Day
Not feeling any different today physically, but it has been a gracious day. I had the opportunity to officiate the wedding of a young couple in our church. The bride’s family has been a part of our church from her early years.
A man came into her life some time ago and swept her off her feet. Today they exchanged their vows and I had the privilege of officiating.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have this deep-seated passion to be in one place of ministry for a long time. And, that’s why it was a gracious day.
You see, I L …. O …. V ….E watching families grow throughout all the joys and pains of life. And every once in a while, I get to see the rewards of hanging around long enough.
This doesn’t get to happen for many pastors, because we tend to be a mobile group. Last I heard, the average tenure of a Pastor at one church is about four years. I’m in my 25th year at NewHeart, and I can’t express how much I love having been here through the highs AND the lows of family life.
Today was a gracious day. Thanking God for His grace in allowing me every once in a while to glimpse my dream!
