|A Soldier and his Chaplain|
WARNING: The following post is either about God, Jesus, Christianity, the Bible or prayer - you know, stuff that makes most people uncomfortable. For those reasons, I have kindly warned you in advance if any of this offends you, bores you, or you are just not interested - just pass it on by. Honestly, you won't hurt my feelings. I also have turned off the comment section so there will be no reason for debate. This is my blog- my views. So there!
As long as it did not interfere with his state pension. We would have his state pension, military pension and salary as a military chaplain at the VA home.
He would be on-call for many occasions; such as when a veteran passes to comfort the family if needed. He would be required to lead 1 Sunday service. they aren't long services and maybe a mid-week bible study. My husband already "teaches" on occasion, when the current Chaplain asks him.
Obviously, we would have more income and that would be a plus.
So OKAY, here is my selfish side...I'm wondering how it would affect me? Like, the current, Mrs. Chaplain attends the service with her husband and plays piano and sings. I do not play piano and trust me, you don't want to hear me sing! And while the husband's teaching is good, I would miss attending a Sunday church. Plus I would be kinda-like a Pastors wife - I don't know what that would all mean for me.
We'll have to talk and get more information before making a decision, but he is already leaning toward it. I just have mixed emotions about it. I know this is not "about me" but it will involve me. I just don't know. Thank God we have some time...
