Linda Honored for Church Service -- Post 380 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

At church last Sunday, my wife Linda was presented with a lap prayer quilt, a beautiful engraved cross, a fruit platter, and a tasty cake to honor and celebrate her 11 year stewardship of the Chula Vista Presbyterian Church Prayer Chain ministry.

In the photo above is Pastor Angie on the left, Linda in the middle, and Rose displaying the prayer quilt.  The photo below shows Linda with the beautiful cake and the fruit platter arrangement:

Linda was very surprised by the announcement and the honors, and is very thankful that the staff and members of the church honored her service.

In 2004, Linda started an email prayer chain - parishioners would call or email her with a prayer request, she wrote them down in a book, then wrote an email to the email prayer chain members (there were over 100 on the email list), and we made a list each week for about 15 parishioners who did not have email.  Over 11 years, there were over 1,100 emails and over 7,600 prayer requests.

She gave up this ministry two months ago to another church couple, but she still writes the incoming prayers in her notebook, and we save the emails received from the prayer chain.

Congratulations to Linda for the splendid recognition of her service. It is so rare that the most hard-working and dedicated receive such warm regards.

The most important things are don by ordinary people. Way to go Linda.
