Short post today....I have struggled with what to post all week....and then last night it hit me like a ton of bricks. I would talk about what I know best. When you are a pastor's wife and active in the church your husband is serving you are usually known as Mrs. Preacher, Sister Preacher, my Pastor's wife(and believe me I don't mind that title. I love my husband and role of his helpmate). At school I am me....and Frank is Mrs. Korb's husband....but at church....it is his world and I am just along for the ride. Well....you all know I am never along for the ride. ANYWAYS....let's herd the cats and move on. Last night we went to buy a used sewing machine and some lamps and I met a lovely young woman there. She works with the woman who was selling the stuff. when M did not introduce me....I introduced myself....and since I am so accustomed to saying it....said, "I am Karen Korb....M's pastor's wife". The lady shook my hand...introduced herself....and told me she had heard a lot of good things about me....but never that I was M's pastor's wife. M always talked about me....and said, "She is my friend." I have to admit that one statement took my breath away and I nearly cried. I love my church family. They really and so near to my hear and rock my world....and if I could have found my voice last night....I would have told M that she "is my friend too!" I am truly blessed!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
