8 years and He still amazes me!

Anniversary number 8!!! Really, 8 years? The time has flown so quickly. Our oldest son reminded me today that he would be 7 in 2 months and my mouth fell open. He is right I guess, and that means that I am getting old! So, what can I say about Curt that would let you know how awesome and amazing he is? Words cannot even begin to describe what a blessing he has been to our family. He makes up for what I lack..............

I'm shy is certain situations, he, of course, isn't shy at all

I'm the energizer bunny when I get home, he reminds me to rest

I'm the early riser, he makes me sleep late

I'm so unsure of our future, he lets me know that God holds our future

I'm not that funny, lacking in personality, he is hilarious and loves a good joke

He amazes me, makes me laugh harder than anyone ever could, and is my very best friend. There is no one I'd rather grow old with. I pray that we are that old couple sitting on the porch one day, rocking in our chairs, holding hands, while our great grands play in the yard. I love him and I know that he feels the same way. In a world where marriages end in an instant, I know that we are committed to each other. Happy 8th Curtis!!!

GREAT Book!!!

imgres.jpgI just finished reading a great book this past week. It is called "You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes" by Lisa McKay. As a church planters wife, or pastor's wife, there is very little GOOD literature out there that isn't "SUPER Spiritual"!!! I've read the ones where you are supposed to stay at home and clean all day and when your hubby walks through the door you should be vacuuming in heels and pearls! I even read one where it teaches you to be the best hostess....pshhhh, I don't think I would ever pass that course! This book is a bit more down to earth, and I can actually say I was able to relate to Lisa quite a bit. From her fears for her sanity to the way she helped encourage her husband, there are numerous stories that every pastor's wife can appreciate. At the young age of 28 I sometimes feel that I am in this boat alone, no one really understands the role of a minister's wife. Yet, I found myself laughing till I cried as I read some of the roller coaster rides that Lisa and her family have been through. This life is tough, but knowing that there are people praying for you as you follow God's call, that makes it 100 times better! READ this book! Pastor's buy this book for your staff members wives! They will thank you later!
