I had the honor and privilege of attending a retreat led by Leading and Loving It. It was a retreat for Women in Ministry and Pastor’s wives. There were many great things about this retreat but one was a song about one lady’s journey as a Pastor’s wife.
(read these words to the tune of ‘I will survive’)
At first, I was afraid, I was petrified
When I realized that I’d become a pastor’s wife
Thinking I was doomed to wear
Home-spun dresses all my life
Thank God for Jeans…and for Lori Wilhite
Now I’m, I’m told to bake
Even though I know I’m just one big baker’s mistake
I should have never chosen pie
Knowing how members would die,
If I’d known for just one second God had other gifts in mind
And so I’ll go, out on the floor, I’ll sing it out now
Cause they gave me a microphone
Guitar in my hand, background vocals and a band
Think I’d remember
That high heels make me crash and land
Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to pray, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, hey hey!
I just love this song and think it speaks to how unique we all are!
