Last night we went to the church to change the message on the sign, and while we were there I decided to make DH 'practice'. I grabbed his bible from the car and said "Ok preacher man, preach!" then I sat down in the sanctuary and refused to leave until he did. I don't know if God had me do it for him.....for me......or for both of us!

He's been worried that he didn't have enough material for a whole sermon and that he'd be done in 5 minutes. Well, 45 minutes after he started, he finished his sermon, and I when he asked what I though I replied that I needed a few minutes alone. Then I knelt at the alter in tears. My toes are a little sore from being stepped on so much, but it was definitely something I needed to hear.

He admitted later that one of the reasons he was the most nervous about doing it was because he felt nervous about preaching in front of me. He knows that I've always thought my Dad was one of the most amazing preachers I've ever listened to, and he was afraid I wouldn't feel that way about him. Well, it's been a long time since any preacher had me at the alter in tears!

I am so proud of my husband, and I know now even more than I did before that he is going to be an excellent minister. He's going to call the other minister in the next few days to set up a time to go to the church he was asked to preach at, and he is also going to see about delivering a sermon at our church one Sunday evening in the near future.

I might have gotten myself into trouble though. Before I had him "practice" I told him that if he started preaching, and if the minister said it was okay that I would start teaching DH's Sunday School class on the weeks he has to work. I never thought he'd agree to it, but I guess God had other plans! I guess I'm going to be teaching the young teen class every other Sunday morning now!

That's great! Believe me, I've learned that we never know what God has planned for us -- the good and the bad!
