The number one question I get asked is …
“ Is it difficult being married to a pastor?” I mean, it has its challenges. No marriage is rainbows, unicorns and peach oatmeal all the time. However, I chose ministry before we started dating. Ive always believed God called me into full time ministry and in a weird way I knew I would marry a pastor. So it wasn’t that much of a difference when we got married. I find it more difficult being married to a man who makes so many jokes. Seriously! It’s so exhausting having to laugh all the time. He literally has to tell ten jokes before he can answer one question. 😂
I can remember, at one point in our dating relationship Jessie decided to call things off. He wrote this 5 page letter ( I still have the evidence) explaining his decision and cried as he read it to me. I cried from being so angry and walked 3 miles home refusing to get in the car as he followed at a steady pace behind me making sure I made it home safe. I’m still dramatic like that and he still cares that strongly for me. 😂😂😂
Can I be honest? I wish I would have handled that moment with a little more maturity. Obviously God knew what He was doing and it all worked out in the end. I didn’t know how blessed I was to have a guy who was willing to walk away if it meant pushing me closer to Jesus. Long story short, Jessie couldn’t keep his eyes off me and here we are today. ❤️❤️❤️ Dont worry I made him work hard to get me back! The truth is, we were both very scared to commit. We had a good Pastor friend tell us to break up and if we can’t stop thinking about the other and no one else catches our eye then get back together. His whole point, I think, was to say that Love is a choice. At some point “love is a choice” really sank in and boy does that make total sense now after 6 years of marriage. I don’t always feel like loving him and I’m sure I’m not always easy to love but we chose to love each other no matter what. I’m so thankful Jessie chose to love and marry me. I’m so thankful God crossed our paths. I’m not lucky to have Jessie. I’m truly blessed. I’m blessed to love someone who who loves Jesus so much, makes me laugh and still follows my crazy dramatic self home. Happy 6 year anniversary Jessie.
