Top 10: Pastor Appreciation Month..FAILS!? (RanDumb Fun)

I LOVE MY CHURCH, THEY ARE SO INCREDIBLY GRACIOUS AND KIND TO ME AND MY FAMILY, ALL YEAR AROUND BUT ESPECIALLY DURING OCTOBER!

I AM HOWEVER CONTINUED TO BE AMAZING...AND SOMETIMES AMUSED (sorry for your pain) BY SOME OF THE STORIES I HEAR FROM OTHER PASTORS DURING ‘PASTOR APPRECIATION MONTH’ EACH YEAR.  SO JUST FOR SOME RAN-DUMB FUN, SO WE CAN ALL LAUGH...



HERE IS "TOP 10: PASTOR APPRECIATION MONTH...FAILS?”  

10.  Unfreeze last year's leftover Christmas Cookies For a Lovely Cookie Tray in OCTOBER!? (*real person story from my own past growing up in a pastor’s home) 

9. Buy Him a Book, That YOU Think He Should Read (yes, I know that "Left Behind” took place in 2018, Kurt Cameron also turns 50 this year, and there will be a Blood Moon on His Birthday! )

8. Make a Mix CD of the Speakers and Pastors From Other Churches, That He REALLY Should Hear! ("Have you heard____, they have really been feeding me on the weeks my family and I cant make it out (*out of bed) on Sunday....

7. Handmade Doilies for His Office. (the cool hand knitted pulpit cover was great last year!) 

6.  A Personalize Coffee Mug of His Favorite Church Family-YOURS!

5.  A Gift Card to a Gym (looking a little tubby, upfront aren't we...)

4.  A NEW CAR...phone! (since he can't afford a real cellphone, but at least you can call him when he is driving on family vacation?) 

3. A Tie.  (no not the one for around his neck, a zip tie for his pants...seriously gym gift card last year *hint*) 

2. Date Night...with you are your spouse! (nothing says romance like having a double date with you!)

1.  A Year Subscription to the Sock of the Month Club!?
