I have had the privilege of being Pastored by my father. This was a blessing & maybe a curse. Simply because you love having him there, but you don't always get the "Pastor" part of him.
Well, now...I am extremely blessed with 2 Pastor's in my life that are amazing. I am so thankful that God has allowed me to get to know them & their families. I am encouraged & fed by them. They are so open & available to what God wants of them. It is refreshing. They are there for me. They pray for us. They care for us. They help us. They love us. We are blessed!
So, Pastor Freddy & Shannon (Isaiah, Isabelle, Illiza & Ilana), I am so thankful for all of you. Thank you for following God's call on your life. Thank you Shannon & kids for supporting your Husband & Dad. Thank you for sometimes giving up your own time with him, in order for us (speaking for our family) to have time with him. Thank you for all your sacrifice. I know in the end, it will be worth it all for each of you! The devil may try to attack, but remember, he will never win. God is victorious! Love you all!
Pastor Philip & Stacey (Elijah), I am so thankful for you all as well!!! Thank you for answering God's call on your lives. Thank you, Stacey & Elijah, for supporting your Husband & Dad. I know that sometimes you give up your time with Philip when we need him. Thank you for all your sacrifice. As I said above, I know in the end, it will be worth it all for each of you! The devil will try to attack, but God is victorious! Love you all!!!
So, thank you so much for being my Pastors. I admire you for who you are in Christ. I appreciate all you do for me & my family. Thank you for continuing to listen to God & following His will for your life.
