Everyone wants to be remembered! Some built libraries and named them after themselves to accomplish that goal. I'll never do that. I am a pastor. I wouldn't let the church put my name on the sign - hate that about most church signs. How many people go to church because they see a pastor's name on the sign?
It is easy to think that no one will remember you - we tend to be pessimistic don't we?
Today someone called me and really encouraged me because it was clear they remembered me. This is not the first time, just a few days ago a young mother called me to pray with her - but today was different. My friend made me feel valued. It made my day. If you are reading this - thank you for such a precious gift!
