The Pastor's Wife

The Pastor’s Wife

by Judy Bowling

She’s a Godly woman, she has such grace
Always a warm greeting, a smile on her face
She’s always encouraging, she knows her place
She is – The Pastor’s Wife

She has to always look just right
Always on time, though the schedule’s tight
From early morning, till late at night
Always – The Pastor’s Wife

She’s such a Lady, everyone’s friend
She serves with love from deep within
All of the rifts she tries to mend
Oh she’s – The Pastor’s Wife

She carries your burdens, she prays for you
Sometimes she cries the whole night through
But you won’t know when she’s feeling blue
‘Cause she’s – The Pastor’s Wife

At church as she starts to walk up the aisle
So many needs to stop and talk for awhile
Though she is tired, she has her own trials
She’s patient, she’s – The Pastor’s Wife

Her life, her time is not her own
There’s always a need, they go on and on
With a knock on the door or a ringing phone
That’s the life of – The Pastor’s Wife

Her husband she shares with a whole congregation
She humbly accepts his intense dedication
In loneliness she kneels to seek consolation
God Bless – The Pastor’s Wife

She will someday reach the end of her race
As she meets her Master, face to face
Surely our God had a Special Place
In heaven for – The Pastor’s Wife

I post this in recognition of my lovely wife, who has been a "Pastor's Wife" for 18 out of our 20 years of marriage.

While the poem can be found here, I found it via Tony Jones' blog.
