The Bestest of Times
I really don’t do well using superlatives. I find myself using words like the “most best” or the “bestest” when making a comparison. While you may find this hard to believe I have even been known to use the term, “Most bestest” when I am really excited about something and want to describe how everything else pales in comparison. Before you inundate me with internet sites on how to properly use the English language, (BTW, I do thank you for your past corrections in these matters), I do know that these words are improper when comparing 3 or more objects, people, or places.
When I got in the office on Tuesday morning, after I settled in, I went back to the classroom area to take a look. I knew that there was some work being done on the walls on Monday (Memorial Day). I must say I was overwhelmed! There has been a LOT of work done in getting the classrooms ready for VBS. In fact, much of it was not really observable. But Tuesday morning it was all very evident.
I can’t emphasize enough how much of our own physical labor is being spent on this project. These men and women are sacrificing personal and family time to get everything done and looking good.
There is still so much to do. I want to thank you for providing the financial resources to keep this work going and to remind you of our 5th Sunday building offering. Please give generously and sacrificially so the work may continue! These are truly “the bestest” of times for Walnut Street Baptist Church!
