01 Mar You Know You Are A Pastor’s Wife When…
Ok, I think being the Pastor’s wife requires having a sense of humor! If you are not a Pastor’s wife, and are a member of a local church, encourage your Pastor’s wife to checkout this blog and add her thoughts! They may seem silly, but the funny part is they are so true! (smile and laugh out loud if you want to) I did and I still do! God Bless!
Here are a few that I like . . . . .
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when…you are rarely referred to by your given name. You are most often “The Pastor’s Wife” or a variation on that theme (“Pastor ______’s Wife,” “Married to the Pastor,” etc.). You may even be called “The First Lady”. My husband even has a friend that calls me, “Mrs. Brian”. It’s all good though!
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when people say, “I know you’re married to _______, but what is your name again?
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when…you wish you had a dime for every time someone claims your husband said something that he never said. If you did, you would be a very, very rich woman.
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when you are expected to meet up to each persons’ list of expectations… perfectly… all the time.
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when everyone else lets you know that they know your job better than you do and they proceed to “set you straight”.
You know you’re a pastor’s wife when people tell you what you should and should not wear. (Does anyone have the dress manual? If so, can I borrow it?)
You know you’re the pastor’s wife when you are expected to have a hat to match every outfit.
You know your a pastor’s wife when…introduced to a new parishioner in the church as the pastor’s wife, and they respond with “Well, you sure don’t look like a pastor’s wife.”
Ok, Pastor’s wives, do you have any more that can be added?
