Appreciation quotes and memorable expressions by others can be a powerful tools when paying tribute to pastors.
These inspirational sayings can prompt us to express appreciation to those who have made a significant impact upon us spiritually. Coffee mugs, wall plaques, and even tee shirts often use memorable quips and quotes and those quotations make these products possible appreciation gifts.
For example, one of the most profound appreciation quotes is by Mother Teresa, who said:
"Kindness is language we all understand. Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it."
What a great reminder to us to say "Thank You Pastor, I Appreciate You." Of all people, churches should have a reputation for kindness.
As I think of Pastor Appreciation, I was moved by another inspirational quote focusing on expressing appreciation:
"Appreciation is a free gift that you can give to anyone you encounter – it is completely your choice. Each time you choose to thank someone for a job well done you are making the world a better place.”
This appreciation prompting quote is the basis of a beautiful book written by Barbara Glanz entitled The Simple Truths of Appreciation.
Why not Share the following movie entitled Simple Truths of Appreciation to remind and thank those for the difference they make each day.
May this compilation of appreciation sayings remind you of pastors who have impacted your life for good, prompting you to say "Thanks" for helping me be a better person.
Many Pastor Appreciation Champions have discovered that a great way to say "Thank You Pastor" is through products based on inspirational sayings, motivational quotes, or even scriptural quotations..
Some of these appreciation gifts may be a stretch as to the quotation and the possible gifts suggested, but that is the fun of using some "tongue in cheek" phrases to introduce a gift idea.
For example, the phrase "Watch and Pray" could lead a congregation to give one of new Apple Watches on the market these days. Yet maybe it isn't a stretch at all as I notice how my friends have programmed their watches to signal them to "watch and pray" at a specific time.
