The bouncehouse 'll make ya jump, jump! Okay, tell me this wouldn't be the most awesome thing to have in your backyard. Currently our backyard isn't the funnest(is that a word???) place to be. We are in the process of putting in sod and have no grass. It's perty blah! My kids would love to play in something besides the dirt. Look at these faces!
Would you like a chance to win? Here's how:
1) Stop by SITS and leave a comment on the Six Weeks of Summer post.
2) If you are not a part of SITS, take The button to your blog and roll call at the SITS blog and mention my blog in your comment.
3) It's that easy! I can't wait to have you over for a bounce!!!

But really, being a pastor's wife isn't all that bad. Some days, I don't really know what the true definition is, but I just keep trying to surrender to Christ. I fail, most days. I mean, come on, I have 3 children under the age of seven. I'm lucky to get a bra fastened before lunch! Who knew, in 1998, when I said, "I Do," what I was saying I do to!
Today it was saying "I do" to my 2 daughters who were fighting madly over our single solitary pink marker! "I do mean it when I say neither of you can have it if you're going to fight over it!"
I do love my life. It's a challenging, but very rewarding life. I just have one request. Please don't look at me any different than any other mom. I know that my kids are "supposed" to be the kids that don't talk back and can spout off all kinds of bible verses upon request, but that's not real life. That's an expectation. I struggle with the same frustrations as other moms. How do I deal with it? Not so well, sometimes. I get ticked off and sometimes I even spew words that I can't say at church. I love Jesus and I know He has saved me. The only thing that seperates us is what our husbands do for a living. God has been so good to us, but sometimes I feel pastors and their wives are cast in a very rose-colored light that just doesn't give a realistic view. Like I have said, I wouldn't want to be any where else, but in the center of God's will. That being said, if I can be any more candid, I just want people to see me for me. I'm not perfect nor is my husband. He is a teacher of the word and will be held accountable by God for that, but besides that, he and I are sinners saved by grace.
I hope my rambling didn't come across as "Oh, poor me," but instead as an open view into the life of a pastor's family......
I just love real people.....it's a little long, but worth the watch:

Intervention! There is probably already some sort of new age, meditative, self-help group out there for those who need it......I'll let you know. I'm not ready to admit I have a problem.....
