Today is my 10 year anniversary at my church. I know, I can’t believe it either. I am both blow away, and actually pretty proud of the fact that I have been here this long. There have been some bad times, but I honestly feel that God has used me while I have been here.
The reason that I need a sign is that there is no good way to tell people that it is your 10 year anniversary. You just end up looking petty and silly. I tried to convince my wife to walk around and tell people. She refused so I am left trying to mention it. Of course the problem is that is like telling people it is your birthday. You look like you are fishing for something.
So I need a sign that says, “Today I have been at Calvary Baptist Church for 10 years. Please don’t take this the wrong way. I don’t need anything from you. I am simply proud of myself and wanted you to know.”
It probably wouldn’t work out any better than just telling people. Maybe I can teach it to Nathan and he can go around telling people today. Yeah, he is cute; that might work.
