Pastors wife... never thought I would be...

I am linking up with Kelly's Corner blog link up... I rarely do any link ups... but I thought this would be one that I would do... It is nice to connect to others who are walking the same path that I am...

Never would I have thought that I would be a pastor's wife... never would I have thought that we would lose a child... There are a whole lot of things that are a part of my life... that I never dreamed would be...

Being a pastor's wife can be a little lonely at times... but there is nothing I rather do than walk along side of Greg and be His mate as he ministers to many.  I am so thankful when I have the opportunity to be there for members of our congregation.  We have the opportunity to be there for people and support people in their most special times of life and their most difficult. 

When we lost Samuel, and we were in a brand new city...I had never felt more alone and sorrowful... That has been one sweet nugget I have gleaned from losing Samuel... that I NEVER want someone to feel so lonely in their sorrow.  I know not everyone may want to share their sorrow... but if they are?  Then I want to be able to be there to help carry the burden...

Many days I feel very ill equipped to be a pastor's wife...But I am trusting God to fill me with himself, to give me the right words when needed, to open my eyes, to prick my conscience, to strengthen and equip me to be His hands and feet here, to fill me so full of His love that it overflows to those around me:)  Life can be so hard, but,  God is so good...

Even before you were a pastor's wife, God was preparing you to be one. You always had the right words for me. That's why I cried like a baby when you left:).
