Well today is an odd commentary because I was the preacher this weekend.  My husband has been preaching his heart out in Australia this week.  He comes home tonight and my children and I cannot wait to see him.  It has been a long 7 days.

I held down the fort at church this weekend (I said in my sermon that I took over the fort because of what I did to my husband’s backstage bathroom.  Picture make-up everywhere and a cloud of hair spray.) as we began our new series, Waiting Room, which is all about waiting on God.

My sermon was about how to turn your waiting room into a work room.  I am going to skip the commentary because it feels too weird.  You can listen to the message (or watch it) at our website, the Elevation Network and our podcast.

I would like to say that I wish every pastor’s wife and church staff member could have the opportunity to preach one Sunday.  Every time I do this, it gives me a renewed perspective and sense of empathy for what my husband goes through every single week.  The pressure to prepare a message and basically speak on behalf of God to a group of people is more than you could ever imagine.  And it never really goes away, even if you do it every single week.

So it is a great thing for me to preach at our church every couple of months even if the only thing that comes of it is a renewed vision to pray for my husband each weekend.  I truly do not know how he delivers such an incredible message every single week!

I hope you have a great Monday.  This week I will finally be sharing some of Abbey’s birthday pictures as well as a great giveaway and of course great stories of life change too!
