Just like Nancy Ruth, and Mothermark had stories with their cards, mine too has a story.
About 2 weeks ago our senior pastor and his twin brother were out on the Mississippi river fishing. They had the boat filled to capacity with fish, when a wave came and capsized their boat. They were in 40 degrees water for about 2 hours before being rescued. Since then, they have been the center of jokes. The first Sunday after the incident, our other pastor presented them with live preservers.
All that said, that is why my card has a life saver as an embelishment. The live saver candy also is important, because our senior pastor's wife plays piano with the worship band and always has this candy in a little cabinet by the piano. Pastor has been seen *sneeking* into her candy stash.
Let me know what you think about my card.
