An Easy Job?

Yes! I'm a Pastor's Wife!

You may think it quite an easy task,

And just a pleasant life;

But really it takes a lot of grace

To be a preacher’s wife.

 

She’s supposed to be a paragon

Without a fault in view,

A saint when in the parsonage

As well as in the pew.

 

Her home must be a small hotel

For folks that chance to roam,

And yet have peace and harmony –

The perfect preacher’s home!

 

Whenever groups are called to meet,

Her presence must be there,

And yet the members all agree

She should live a life of pray’r.

 

Though hearing people’s burdens,

Their grief both night and day,

She’s supposed to spread but sunshine

To those along the way.

 

She must lend a sympathetic ear

To every tale of woe

And then forget about it,

Lest it to others go.

 

Her children must be models rare

In quietness and poise,

But still stay on the level

With other girls and boys.

 

You may think it quite an easy task,

And just a pleasant life;

But it really takes a lot of grace

To be a preacher’s wife.
