Since this month is Pastor Appreciation month, I would like to say a few words about my "lifelong" pastor and wife--my parents... Even though technically they are no longer my Pastor and wife, I still consider them to be (and probably always will!) :0). They have "pastored" me for most of my life, and in some ways are STILL "pastoring" me even now. Whenever I need advice or council, especially now that we are in the ministry ourselves, I know that they are only a phone call away. There have been many times that I have had to go to them for advice on what to do in a situation, and they are always there to listen and support in prayer. I am so blessed to have both parents and a "pastor and wife" in one couple! They are the best! I love you mom and dad! Thank you for the wonderful example that you have set before me!
