It made me cry as they explained the gift! It means so much to me to have a little piece of the church house I love so much. I was baptized there, discipled there (still am), Taylor and I were married there, and it is one of the greatest joys of my life to serve in various capacities there. My baby was dedicated to the Lord there. That place is such a big part of who I am. However--the best part of all that is--it is not because of the church house or building, which I do love so much. It is because of the Church. The people. The community of believers I am so thankful to be a part of, who continually invest in me and help me and my family grow in the Lord.
What a precious and thoughtful gift. Thank you Mom and Dad!
