For Pastor Appreciation Month, draft no. 3

Pastors deal with lots of guff,

Rants and rage and tedious stuff.

Saturdays are all awash,

Scanning o’er the week’s midrash.

Yet somehow you don’t seem to mind,

Your manner stays cheerful and kind.

There’s but one way this could be true:

Because you trust that God’s got you.

I thank God* for the work you do,

I know that it will bear much fruit.

Pastoring’s not easy, even with gifting,

Praying you let the Spirit do the heavy lifting.   


*Pastor Dan preached on how one should thank God and not people once. See? Some were listening.
