The Pastor's Wife
A Tribute to an Outstanding Woman

She serves in a lofty position not sought by her in life;


Psalm 23

A Tribute to all veterans, and all of our brave soldiers, God bless you!

Friend, I have faced many a difficult battle,

When I have down times
Days dreary and blue,
I receive help right on time
From a friend like you.

Mothers do not like it
When their children are sad.
Mothers do not like it
When their children are bad.

Snowflakes a-fallin', in the kitchen Mom's callin',
'You youngins' get out of that bed! '
The day's now a-wastin', the biscuits a-bakin'
And I got lots to do 'ere ye're fed.


Fathers …
They are strong

I've seen you in this barren space
Standing majestically tall,
I've gazed upon your elegance
From winter through to fall.

He is just a common thief,
And now he must pay;
His wicked deeds bring him,
Condemned to die today.

A Rainbow is…

An undeniable natural beauty,
Appearing mysteriously,

The time has finally come, there is no one here now and I’m alone. I shouldn’t be surprised, for loneliness is the story of my life.

I have the rope ready and my stool, now I will put on this tight sweatshirt to secure my arms, just in case I change my mind. But, I know I won’t, I just have to end this suffering, I hope to God I have the courage to see it through.

The story of Frank and Viola's Diamond anniversary.

Frank was ninety and seven;

When I chose
To burn my bridges to you,
O what a stupid choice I made;
For I burned my fingers with the matches.

When you smile,
When you giggle,
When you cuddle,
When you wiggle-

Five years held in a metal container
A nightmare that abused my sanity,
No freedom and only rations of food
Five years seemed an eternity.

Are faithfull, strong and true,
Providing for our needs;
They give us words of truth,

I love the newness of life from our younger years,
I love the sweet tears the first time I saw you cry,
I love the childish days of innocent mistakes,
I love the careless ways as we let time slip by.

He was just a common thief
And now he must pay.
His wicked deeds found him,
Condemned to die today.

This anchor shall hold in adversity,
When all else does threaten to give way;
This anchor keeps my vessel from drifting,
Never letting my ship run astray.

I often have wondered why it is
that I spend so much time in prayer.

As I pondered this thought, the question

The Pastor's Wife
A Tribute to an Outstanding Woman

She serves in a lofty position not sought by her in life;
having fallen in love with a ministry man,
she became a pastor's wife.

She gave her life to Jesus, to share the Gospel Light,
to make both God and her husband proud-
happy being the pastor's wife.

She started on her journey, expectations soaring high,
to serve beside him with heart and soul,
for she is the pastor's wife.

She wished to be a servant on whom others could rely,
adjusting to expectations;
after all, she's the pastor's wife.

She longs to be free of anxiety, of bitterness, and strife,
to have a gentle countenance
and heart of a pastor's wife.

She's always a gracious hostess whenever folks drop by,
entertaining cheerfully, whether day or night-
a hospitable pastor's wife.

She's tried to be the perfect mom, with kids who had to play nice.
She nurtured them with tender love-
she's a mom and the pastor's wife.

She's not to show her struggles or down times in her life;
to appear to be always on top of the world,
like a pastor's loving wife.

There are times when she's been lonely; we need to realize,
that God made her first a woman
and then the pastor's wife.

She's lived on a meager salary, just trying to survive,
while others enjoyed lives of luxury -
so common for a pastor's wife.

She's been grateful for blessings that filled her daily life;
and for all the prayers that have been prayed
to encourage a pastor's wife.

She's longed for one true friend in battles she's had to fight,
only to be burned by those who turned
their backs on the pastor's wife.

She yearns for her own identity, the many tears she has cried,
for she wants to be known for who she is,
not just as the pastor's wife.

She has often craved conversation from the many people in her life,
but they just have a message for him,
to be passed on by the pastor's wife.

She sometimes has been hurt, needing hugs authentic and tight,
for she gets discouraged like everyone else.
So let's lift up our pastor's wife!

She's always been there for all of us, so love and treat her right,
taking genuine interest in this precious lady
whom we call the pastor's wife.

She's been often taken for granted by those God put in her life.
So let's show our loving appreciation
for our pastor's gracious wife!

Dedicated to my wife Kathy
