Dear Pastor’s Wife,
For consistently supporting your husband spiritually, emotionally, and physically...thank you. Your love is his greatest earthly treasure.
For filling in the ‘gaps’ at church, for noticing the little things…thank you. It makes a difference.
For smiling when your own heart is breaking…thank you. That takes grace.
For all of your sacrifices, both visible and invisible…thank you. God sees them all.
For being authentic, for not trying to be superwoman…thank you. People can always relate to real.
For modeling Godly living and for mentoring those who are young in the Lord…thank you. The next generation is changed because of this.
For bearing up under criticism and attack; for responding with humility, grace, and forgiveness time after time…thank you. You are like Christ in your suffering.
For navigating an often hectic and unpredictable schedule with graceful flexibility…thank you. You make it look easy.
For burying your own grief; for setting your own burdens aside, in order to reach out and minister to others in their times of sorrow...thank you. People will never forget that you were there for them.
For nurturing your relationship with Christ above any other relationship…thank you. It shouldn’t be any other way.
For leading through an example of servanthood, for serving with confidence and joy…thank you. You compel others to serve God with you.
For embracing the privilege and high calling of ministry, for saying “yes” to life with a pastor…thank you. You make Christ’s bride look beautiful.
A Kindred Spirit
