"Before He Speaks" Video

Yes, yes, yes, my posting has been erratic over the last week. I've been a little busy... more about that later.. right now... take a look at the video below.

All you pastor's wives and married women in ministry will get a chuckle AND relate a bit... THIS is great... very funny.... so, before you press play, just think back to the last time your sweet husband used you in a sermon illustration... WITHOUT your permission...

The problem is, there are some unwritten rules (see post by Andrea)
that our ministry husband may not be aware of... Lord help our men!!! LOL!!! (this is meant to be tongue in cheek!)

"Rules of the “Normal Pastors’ Wives Club”

Some of the rules you are about to read are good ones, things we should do as the wife of the pastor, but others are a bit strange, but you’d be amazed at the number of pastors’ wives striving to follow them all (or are trapped following them all). Sometimes I break these rules and get put on probation. Some of the rules are good reminders. I can’t share them all–I’d loose my patch.

1. No swearing.

2. All farts must be held in until you reach a place of solitude.

3. Your children must be well behaved, well groomed and never do anything wrong.

4. Your home must be clean at all times, and not just when guests are coming over.

5. You should have a model walk with the Lord.

6. You must like everyone in the church, but be okay with them all not liking you.

7. You must be comfortable with your life being public information.

8. Messing up is discouraged, but should you do so hiding it might not be a bad idea.

9. Smile at church. Cry in the car. Pray at home.

10. Find out what everyone in your church expects of you and accomplish those things, even at the cost of your sanity and the health of your family.

I just couldn't help but share this stuff.....

Love & Blessings!

Too funny! Love the video! My kids and I have "suffered" through a sermon or two. That is ok though-since I can put all HIS "craziness" up on my blog!! Just this morning an "elder" of our church made mention of Brett's crazy you tube videos on my blog-sweet revenge!

Love the video - my husband has used me as an illustration a few times but nothing embarassing, but I've witnessed others embarassing moments.

This video is a must share - lol
