THOUGHTS FROM A PREACHER’S WIFE

I’m pumped. I can’t believe Lea agreed to it. I’ve been asking her for a long time and she finally said, “Sure.”

What is it? Here are a few guesses from yesterday…

  • Motorcycle? (Nope – My mom said “No” under the comments section).
  • Lea starts her own blog? (Can’t see her doing that).
  • Put up the Christmas tree? (Awesome thought, but I know she’d say no).
  • NASCAR? (As much as I wish … nope!)
  • A Baby? (Holy smokes, people, I’m too old!).
  • Something to do with sex? (Nope, but I was a little surprised that it took till comment 14 for someone to think of it).

Corny, yes, but I’ve been asking Lea for months to be a guest blogger on my blog. Okay, I know it’s not as exciting as a baby or a motorcycle, but it is to me. Lea’s personality is both quiet and reserved. She’s not big on having attention drawn to her, but she’s so full of wisdom. I honestly didn’t think she’d ever agree to this. I’ve asked her if she could do something for us next week, and she said she would. I feel a little like the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8).

What’s she going to write? I actually have no idea (which kind of scares me). Lea may share her thoughts about being a minister’s wife or about being the mother of four boys (five if you include me). I’ve given her a couple of ideas, but I just don’t know what she’s cooking up. I’m not sure she knows yet, but I told her she could do anything she wants. But you might help her out and give her an idea …

Do you have any ideas for a good post from Lea next week?

    Boy, am I relieved, I’d just about decided on the motorcycle because of the price of gas. Last night when I went to bed I was thinking about it and thought “why can’t that boy just go buy a new tie?” I can relax now and Lea won’t need any ideas, she is smart and sweet and a good wife and mother, she doesn’t need my input. She is a super daughter-in-law. Mom

    That she’s getting a motorcycle to ride to NASCAR without you? Lea reminds me of my Janice … full of godly wisdom except in my case Janice is stuck with someone on whom she needs to use it daily.

    Trey my suggestion is:
    “Why Trey is not too old for a baby”
    You aren’t you know.
    Well, maybe?

  8. Louie Mercer, Frank Mercer and Mike Ellis: The Church for Men Dudes says:

    Lea,

    What and how does Trey do to help you know without question that you are number 1 after God in his life?

    How do you tell him that you are feeling like number 22 in life?

    How does he respond when you tell him you feel like # 36 in his life?

  9. Lightening says:

    Yes, definitely something about what Trey is “really” like. LOL. I wonder if we’re kind enough to her whether she might start to make it a regular thing? Little by little….

    Just tell her she’s adored from way over in Australia and she hasn’t even typed a word yet. :)

    May God’s richest blessings be yours as you reflect on the extent of His love demonstrated through the death His Son on the cross and the awesomeness of His power exhibited through the resurrection.

    To God be the glory!

    Trey,
    I think it is great!
    I think stresses of being a ministers wife. Expectations vs. Real Life. Working vs. Team ministry. How to deal with the expectations or stresses of the Church.
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.
    In Him,
