Second, a while back I ran across this free printable on Pinterest (of course), and I knew then that I wanted to give it with soap in the future (in fact, I described it as "To give with soap" when I pinned it on my "Nifty Gifty" board). :-) Yay for thinking ahead!!
When I decided this is what I wanted to do for our pastor (he's on a restricted diet, so food gifts were out, and he's got enough nicknacks in his office that I wanted to give something he could use up), I was excited to be able to put it all together!
(Also, I thought about printing and framing this to go above a bathroom sink or something, but since the printable wasn't designed for 8x10, the quality wasn't great at that size. At least not for a gift -- but you may see it in my guest bath...)
Along with a little hand-written card from our family and a reciting of Psalm 23 — newly memorized by almost-5-year-old Riley — I hope we can express some of our appreciation for all the wonderful things our pastor is and all he does.
Our Sunday preschool class has also prepared a couple of songs to sing during our family service because Bro. Brian has such a soft heart for our little ones. And really, you just can't beat a bunch of 3, 4, and 5-year-olds singing "This Little Light of Mine" for cuteness! :-)
Do you have plans to bless your church leadership this month?
