Today, we're feeling grateful
For a friend who walks in truth
To share God's Word, salvation, joy
That would each soul renew.
We're thankful for the dedication
The life they gladly give,
Unfolding of God's perfect way
The only way to live.
We praise God for the thoughtfullness,
Leading on the upward path,
For prayer, concern and 'being there',
The caring from the heart.
We praise God they're fulfilling
The call of God they heard,
Sharing of the gift God gave
To bless us with His Word.
We thank God for that walk in Him
For the trust in God each day,
Gleaning of the endless wisdom
For all The Lord would say.
We're grateful for the hand of grace
Stretched forth with loving care,
We praise God for our loving friend
Who gives us wings through prayer.

Poetry From The Heart
Grace and peace to you
from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God every time I remember you.
In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy
because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,
being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 1:2-6~
