Our Pastor This pastor appreciation poem reminds us of the importance of pastors in our lives and of how weshould respond.  Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes,And gone where his feet have trod?Have you ever thought of what he means to us,And on your knees, given thanks to God?Have you ever told him thank you,For being there, when times are tough,For comforting words and fervent prayersWhen trials come and the storms of life are rough?He answers our calls in the middle of the nightAnd tells us not to worry, for he will be there.He gives up his comfort of quiet restAnd comes with prayers of comfort to share.Have you ever thought to say thank you Pastor,For preaching God's word to help us understand,For all the times he has asked for thingsThat will lend us a helping hand?When you pray, put him at the top of the listAnd ask the Lord to surround him with loving care,To give him strength and walk with him,To help him with the burdens that he must bear.Have you ever walked in our Pastor's shoes,And gone where his feet have trod?Have you ever thought of what he means to us,And on your knees, given thanks to God?A Pastor Appreciation Poem by Judy Crowe  A Pastor's Heart This pastor appreciation poem was written by the author for her pastor's ordination.
