Dear Pastor Bradley,
First off, congratulations are in order for making it thus far,
A milestone in your ministry and a better person you are.
Many cannot know what it takes and means to be a leader better yet a pastor,
Just like the disciples didn't know the blessing they had while walking with our master.
It takes a man of God to stand tall, firm, and lead his people.
Faith, the size of a mustard seed, to fight temptations and all evil.
This journey wasn't easy and I admit I didn't make it any better,
But by the grace of God I've grown and we can be in the same room together.
Not only that but when you came about 1yr and half later you lost your mother,
But it was encouraging to me to see how you leaned on God knowing he sticks closer than a brother.
This journey to success, who said there wouldn't be any storms
But just like on the boat, He can speak and instantly it's calm.
I must say, to your children you're a good father, to your wife you're a good man;
You're the glue to our church which completed God's plan.
Pastor you have been such a good inspiration to all God's sheep,
I'm just glad I can call you one of my peeps.
I pray that God will bless you and your ministry indeed.
Numbers are not your #1 priority but the person's soul and what they need.
Shiloh could not have prayed and asked God for a better person than you.
