So, I have been thinking again…I realize that a lot of what I write on my blog about being a Pastor’s wife is sarcastic and funny. Truthfully, a lot of what happens to me is just that, but more often than not, my life is awesome. I need to be clear about that before more wonderful, well-meaning people try to guide and direct me in the paths of righteousness.
Really, my life is awesome. I wouldn’t trade it in for anything. (except maybe if that other life included household servants that waited on me hand and foot)…see, there’s that sarcasm thing again. I just can’t seem to get away from it. But really, I mean REALLY, I am so thankful for the life I have. I get an insiders view into the everyday happening’s at one of the most amazing churches on the planet. I’d like to think I have some subliminal influence into what goes into Rob’s sermons…I try at least.
I get to see people’s lives transformed before my eyes. The benefit of staying at one place for 16 years is that you get to see long-term change in people’s lives. Take Angie for example. I met her when she was 12. She gave her life to Jesus, decided she wanted to become a medical missionary, focused like a laser for the next years of her life. She’s a real doctor now. People kept calling her when we were walking around the zoo the other day, asking her all kinds of questions like how to save this person and that person. Angie calmly explained to them what to do and how to do it. She’s on her way to fulfilling the part of the Great Commission God has called her to. I am so proud of her I can’t stand it.
I get to be around greatness all the time. The people and staff of GCC amaze me daily. They are fully devoted followers of Christ. They are living every day to know Jesus and make him known.
My life is awesome.
No sarcasm….it wasn’t that hard.
