You know I love my husband, but do you know how much I love my pastor?

You know I love my husband very much. But do you know how much I love my pastor? In our almost 39 years of marriage, Robert worked 26 of these years in the building trades. We both knew we were running away from doing what God had called him to do, to be a pastor.  In September 2004 we finally found a way to move to Austin for him to complete a Masters in Divinity at Austin Presbyterian Seminary.  I can assure you I questioned him about his calling. I said Robert are you sure you are supposed to be a Presbyterian minister. I felt like I knew better than he did, after all, I had been raised in the Presbyterian church. He looked at me with knowing all over his face and said, “Yes Kathleen, Presbyterians need to know Jesus too”. I have kept my mouth shut, most of the time since that day. Now Robert is the pastor at Leander Presbyterian Church. I have grown more than I could have ever imagined listening to my husband preach to these wonderful children of God. I am the most blessed I can imagine being. And, today’s sermon is amazing. At the beginning, Robert is reading Matthew 21 and I did not manage to start the video in time to get it all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1O63Icty94U
