Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

She Is My Friend!

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 is his world and I am just along for the ride. 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!


Mary said...'s so nice to know that you're actually a friend and not the Pastor's wife! :)
