Sorry pastor that we couldn't make it to pastor appreciation night.Here's a token of gratitude in poetic form. Trust that you will enjoy.Have a great day.
We missed appreciation night
But our hearts were there
God's favour bestowed upon you
Thou heart filled man of prayer
Faithfulness your mantra
You hold your calling high
And preach with expectation
That the Spirit draweth nigh
Joybells fill the fibre
And the sinew that you wear
Music from heaven within you
Those songs you love to share
Heartfelt compassion a companion
You with the Lord plodding on
With both hands to the plow
Steadying the work along
Cheerfully facing endeavours
Doing them in God's will
With hope awaiting the outcome
Peace! My soul be still.
Rendering dutiful service
Neath the banner of the cross
Praying that salvation
Would come to those who are lost
God's blessings be upon you
Count this soldier in
Who's been blessed by your ministry
Time and time again
Forgive my "no show no shows"
Our heart is with you brother
We esteem you "cream of the crop"
You're one of a kind dear pastor.

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
