Through the years, however, changes in the volume of my domestic responsibilities no longer allow me to be involved in ministries that require my physical presence in church. At one time, I became church treasurer, a ministry which called for keeping track and recording of all church finances on top of counting tithes and offerings every after church services on Sundays. A heavy responsibility eh!?
At another time I became church secretary. This ministry entailed preparing minutes of all church meetings and publishing the weekly bulletin featuring prayer lists, announcement of events, activities, birthdays and anniversaries, reminders of flower donors, meetings, fellowships and many more.
Today, my ministry involves acting as flower donor coordinator. As such, I make arrangements in behalf of brothers and sisters who pledge to offer flowers on Sundays. I place their orders to a nearby florist through telephone. I've been doing this ministry for several years now. Here's how I do it...
Before the end of the year, I pass around a piece of paper where brethren would write their preferred schedule of offering flowers.
Then, I organize the given schedule of flower pledges and give reminders either personally or through the weekly bulletin. They are free to tell me how much they would like to pledge, as the Holy Spirit leads their hearts to offer.

I'm not good at remembering names of flowers but aren't they beautiful?!! Here are photo collages of other flower arrangements I was able to capture in the past.
Do you have a florist in your church? A flower donor coordinator? Oh, maybe you do the flower arrangement yourself? Well, whatever it is you do, may you give honor and glory to God for doing it.
"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might..."
-Ecclesiastes 9: 10
Here's praying that all the available slots be filled with flower donors for the whole year.
