Sending a greeting card for a special occasion is a great ministry. I remember when my husband was Pastor of a church in Ohio several years ago there was a very lovely lady who kept great track of special occasions of the congregants, including anniversaries. It was her ministry to send out welcome letters and greeting cards. She would often include a special Bible verse or other Christian quote. Here are 17 Christian quotes that you might want to use in an anniversary card.
