Today my husband woke up studied, prayed did his morning devotions. Then we were off to visit one of our church members in the hospital. Don't get me wrong, I love visiting and making sure everyone is fine, but it's not like it's a fun job, or a night out with your family like some people seem to believe. At any granted time we have to be able to drop everything ( house work, cooking, Nap Time, studying) and drive usually an hour away to the hospital or where ever the call.
With a 8 month old child routine is key. But that is not a something I get to cherish. If a church family member has a death in there family, or anything of the sort we have to get up, get dressed, and truck out to there house at 2:00 a.m in the morning.
Please!!! Do not misunderstand my concerns as nagging. Because I love the job God has called our family to do. I am amazed at the strength, power, and love The Lord blesses me with daily. I just want to stress that Pastors don't have an easy job. They rarely have a day off, much longer sweet time to spend with there family. All in all I just want to say respect your Pastor and there family, and know the job comes with a lot of work. You may not know what they are going through, so love on them.
