I've been thinking about the balance between ministry and family.
Being a pastor's wife is an interesting perspective.
When a family in the church is in crisis of course I want my husband to be there to minister to them. But I also want him to be here with us. My kids need him just as much, in fact more, than our congregates.
Of course I know that God has called my husband to this ministry and called me to support him in that but sometimes I feel like our kids are the innocent victims. I don't want them to feel like everyone else is more important to daddy than they are.
I am blessed to have a husband who is a great daddy and totally agrees with me on this but how do you divide your time between so many needs? It's hard. I don't want my kids to end up hating us or God or the church because of our inability to say no or other people's inability to respect my husband's need for family time.
I suppose it's all about finding that ever so elusive balance.
