In Praise of Pastor’s Wife
Now that I had gotten the words for the Pastor and Assistant Pastor, what about the Pastor’s wife? After all, besides my Mother (who’s best friend was a Pastor’s wife), the most Godly women I had ever known were Pastor’s wives. Plus, from our online businesses, we were always being asked if we had something for the Pastor’s wife.
For 16 years, after writing “Why, Pastor, Why,” I had never, not even once, been given anything that even resembled something to write for the Pastor’s wife. When I talked with my brother about this, he told me, “If God wants you to write it, He’ll give it to you.”
How great is God?
Remember, there is nothing He can’t do, and there’s nothing too hard for Him. Then, from “out of the blue,” totally out of nowhere, God began to give me the words for something to honor the Pastor’s wife. He started to give me the pieces of the puzzle.
There I was, so worried that I couldn’t write anything for the Pastor’s wife … I had no feeling to write anything for over 16 years … and, how great is God?
When He had finished, I had five pages of legal pad paper full of notes he gave me!
You don’t think God honors the Pastor’s wife?
He gives me two separate works to honor them!
One was “Letter to Pastor’s Wife,” also featured in this volume.
Here is the poem, written in praise of, and to honor, the Pastor’s wife.
In Praise of Pastor’s Wife
It seems every day, you’ve had to wear a different hat
And the last thing you’d want is a pat on the back
You’ve stood so tall, with Jesus and our Pastor both at your side
You have fulfilled every role, as friend, wife, mother, and bride
You and your husband are the models of one accord
And that’s just one of many reasons you are so loved and adored
Serving us as unto the Lord
You have given us more than we could ever deserve
You have been the most cherished role model of all
By showing us how best to answer God’s call
You have personally been there in good times, great times, and bad
You have been the mother many have wished for, or never had
You made a decision a long time ago
A decision to allow others around you to grow
The kindness and love you have shown
Is the best living example of the Word we have ever known
You have given your life to be a Pastor’s wife
The Pastor’s wife you chose to be
The image of the Bride of Christ
You’ll always be to me
What you mean to this church, and to each and every life
We are so thankful that you chose Jesus, and to be our Pastor’s wife
You just want to be a blessing, and, that you have been
If the Pastor, or us, had to choose, we’d both choose you again
