“He has made everything beautiful in His time: also he hath set the world in our heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”

Ecclesiastes 3:11Ecclesiastes 3:11
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

11¬†He hath made everything beautiful in its time: also he hath set eternity in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end. †

As I start another new year, I am reminded of the chorus we frequently sing at church, “In His Time.” It seems impossible that a year has passed since I started posting blogs to my web site, “A Pastor’s Wife’s Journey.” What a journey this year has been. I have successfully written and published over 40 blogs.

My web site, “So You’re the Minister’s Wife”, has required ongoing persistent attention. I have gone through boxes and boxes of treasured snippets of information collected throughout the years. I continue to put some of this information on my site as time allows. I will probably wear out the boxes from constantly pulling them out of the closet and going through them over and over again.

I have inserted ads, moved ads, taken off ads, submitted my site regularly to search engines and posted status updates on several popular social sites. I added a favicon to each page as well as valuable clipart. I even totally changed the appearance for ascetic quality and better clarity of information. Whew! It has definitely been a learning process.

So as the song, “In His Time,” goes, I must begin another year of being patient (not a strong attribute of mine) as I strive to make both the web site and blog better and a valuable resource for pastor’s wives and other Christian women. My ultimate goal, however, is to be a blessing through these endeavors. I am convinced it will all fall in place – in His time.

May you have a blessed and happy 2011!

So You’re the Minister’s Wife

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

We arrived at our first full-time pastorate during the Easter season thereby being thrust into a whirlwind of activiites.¬† Arriving on Wednesday we found it important that we should attend a “Good Friday” service.¬† Immediately following the service I became flooded with this question – so you’re the minister’s wife?¬† Everyone seemed to repeat this same phrase.¬† I thought to myself that perhaps they had been programmed like robots to utter the same remark to me.

With “yes” as my quick retort I began to contemplate how I could begin to live up to this great expectation of me.¬† I silently thought, “Oh, Lord, how is a shy backwards little gal like me ever suppose to fit into such a huge mold?’

So you see, I am the minister’s wife!¬† This is a coined expression I am privileged to bear.¬† Perhaps the terminology is stereotyped but may I never become a complacent Christian or minister’s wife as I labor for God.¬† Lord I am willing to bear this cross proudly – yes; I am the minister’s wife!!!

New Beginning for the New Year!

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Creating¬†a blog and keeping it updated regularly is a new experience for me but that is my goal for 2010, thus New Beginning for the New Year!¬† With over 35 years of experience as a pastor’s wife, I feel I have the expertise to maintain this blog with posts that will encourage you, give you vital information on being a women in ministry or just just give you something to read.

It is my intent to share with your regularly but time constraints may be an issue because I am also employed part-time.¬† This will be a new experience for me so be patient as I strive to learn more about this “blogging” process.¬† Who would have thought years ago that this type of media could be used to share gems of wisdom or share God’s Word with others.

My web site address is:¬† I know it’s a unusual name for a web site, but when you view it, you will know why I chose that name.¬† Please check the site often for new added information.¬† It includes devotion ideas, party planning ideas, quotes, helpful hints, recipes, scripture verses, women in the Bible highlights and various religious articles.

God’s best to you in 2010!
