Happy Easter!

For Pastor’s Wives, I should just say, “yay! We survived!”

But really, no matter our vocation, we all have difficult times. We have periods as moms where our lives have more things on the schedule than times to do them, or more items on the shopping list than money to pay for them.

I’m emerging from a post-lenten fog.

I’ve had a lot on my plate.

I’m beginning to think that March is not my favorite month. Last year I struggled with my oldest son being away at basic training in March, and this year I just, well, struggled. It was nothing I can put my finger on, but I can tell that I am coming out from the other side.

I’m enjoying my family again.

I’m feeling productive.

Yarn is flying off of my crochet hook and knitting needles.

Decent meals are being cooked.

The house, while not company ready, IS family ready.

I’m getting my work mojo back.

It is all good.

And I am so thankful to God for sustaining me through my rough times as well as my up times.

We all have down times.

And that is OK.

    I felt bad for our Pastor’s family this year. First of all, it’s an extra-busy time anyway. And they just decided to sell their house. Then Pastor got sick late last week – REALLY sick. I was surprised to go to church Thursday night and see him there. You could hear it in his voice. Friday their youngest foster child was sick also and had a febrile seizure (kids are 2, 7, and 9). Pastor was there again Friday night. Sunday he had 2 services to do. He made it through consecrating the bread and wine, and walked clear around the sanctuary to give communion to those unable to make it to the rail. Then another lay minister took over for him. And another person gave the final prayers and benediction because apparently he was losing speech by then. Poor man! The family did attend breakfast and then 2nd service started. I stayed long enough to see the foster children baptized. Yes, they are now part of the body of Christ! And both of their parents were there! I don’t know if Pastor made it through 2nd service without assistance. But I know they felt a lot of joy; not only the resurrection, but the baptisms!

      Oh, how wonderful! But I hope they all stayed home and rested the rest of yesterday and today!

    So true. Happy Easter and happy all things new! I’m thankful God is on my side through the dark days and I know He will be when the lighter ones come, too.
