twenty-two years as the Pastor of that Historic Little Church on the Hill
twenty-two years of leadership as you continue to submit to God's will

you're don't rest on your laurels as you've just attained another Master's Degree
from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University

you recently received a blessing from God that has given you tremendous joy
you are now officially a grandfather and hallelujah it's a boy

you preach to us the living gospel the eternal words of Christ
and you relate it to us in a way that has impacted our lives

we thank you for these twenty-two years of delivering the word of God
we thank you for these twenty-two years that you've kept us in your heart

you've held our hands, you anointed us with oil 
and you listened to our troubles
you prayed for us, you prayed with us 
and gave us guidance in the midst of our struggles

we love you Pastor Griffinfor your honest and humble approach to life
we love you and the First Family for all that you've sacrificed

twenty-two years and still counting since the day you were appointed
Congradulations and keep making good things happen 
for you are truly anointed

    * such a lovely and wonderful dedication and recognition * “Wrapped In Thankfulness * Honour * Love & Beauty * By Beauty” * and when one does truly think about the big picture of it all * twenty two years is but a moment in times * grains of sand upon * “The Everlasting Shore” * hugs and kisses * kisses and hugs * sarah
