The Best Part of Being a Pastor

CDB_9118Love is the best part.

Last week, our church gave me a birthday party  as I have now sojourned this earth these 50 years . . .

All the cards were great . . . notes like the one Elaine wrote (the pretty little girl to the right), remind me of the best part of being a pastor.

I put a copy of Elaine’s note below. I think we could come up with a verse for Elaine’s note; try John 13:34-35?

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”John 13:34-35

*I haven’t found a Bible verse to explain the “meow” yet, but it’s a nice touch.

  1. In my vast experience, I have sometimes noticed that when darling little girls don’t know what else to say, they say “Meow”. Perhaps an appropriate verse may be, ‘the words of the LORD are flawless’ Psalm 12:6. There is simply nothing else to say, hence ‘Meow’. Happy Birthday, Chris

  2. Marge, you are doubtless more knowledgeable about little girls. Hi to your groom.

  3. Both our girls love you…because they know you love them. It’s a sweet thing. “Meow” means “Cats are the greatest animals ever, and I hope you think so, too.” You might just want to leave that part alone. 🙂
