Pastors, we need you to always build us up. Build us up when we aren't around, and even more when we are around! As a pastor's wife, we are to be your biggest cheer leader, but who is to be ours? We need to know we are loved, and adored by you. We need to know you won't get lost in the mission, and lose sight of keeping Jesus center and being head of our house. We want to be taken care of by you, and know you have our best interest. We adore who God has called you to be to the church, but we always want you to remember God has called you to be a good stewart of your household too.
We want to know you value our opinions. We want you to remember we are here, always here. We want to be included, part of your team, and your right hand girl! We care a whole lot about you, and sometimes we get frustrated easily and don't say things well. We love who God has created you to be, and are so proud as we sit there and listen to you lead God's church in a Sunday morning sermon. We are honored to be a part of you. Words of affirmation, and little gifts here and there to know you are always thinking of us, even though you are super busy carrying the weight of shepherding a church goes a long way. We need it. We need to be reminded. No we don't forget that you love us, but sometimes it gets hidden among the chaos of ministry.
I love you. You are the best pastor ever. You are a great husband. I am sorry we sometimes argue, get stressed out and take it out on each other. The devil knows how to shoot his arrows, to ruffle our feathers. He is malicious.
Preach all day everyday, honey. Tell me whats on your heart more. Let me listen to what's going on in your head, and be your encourager and lover. Let me love you more and more. I want to be your biggest fan. You are a rock star for Jesus, and I can't wait to spend my forever with you on mission to win people for Jesus. He has big plans for us.
