THANK YOU !!! THANK YOU !!!! THANK YOU !!!!
I have to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, prayers and thoughts. It was a spectacular day. One filled with faith, family and friends. Everything that you could want on a birthday. It is a special day, a day that God has given to each one of us to celebrate how special we are in his eyes. None of us get to pick our birthday but it is ours for our whole life. It is to celebrate how much God loves us, a day in which we get to celebrate us. A day that we get to thank God and our parents for the gift of life, and the gifts that they have given us throughout our life. Life is a special gift and one that we need to celebrate year after year. We should never take one of God’s gifts for granted, and life is one of the most special gifts. All you need to do is to look into a new baby’s face and you will realize just how special the gift of life is. They are all special and unique and each one needs to be celebrated.
I want to thank each one of you for making me feel special and unique on my birthday. All of the thoughts, calls, text, and prayers really made the day special. We call church our faith family and it really is a family. We look out for one another and care for one another and make one another feel special and unique. We celebrate with those who are celebrating and we suffer with those who are suffering. We encourage one another to try new things and to share God’s love in new ways. We walk together through this journey of life and we grow into the people that God wants us to be by the way we share his love and grace.
To my faith family, I want to tell you how special and accepted I feel. It is through growing in love that we will experience more of the body of Christ. It is a body that is filled with love and sharing. May each one of us feel and know how unique we are in God’s eyes and may we continue to grow together and closer to God almighty. Again thank you for all that you do each and everyday to live into the body of Christ.
In Christ Love,
Rev. Stephen W. Barch
