Bishop Glass

The 2008 script that I wrote out in my head on January 1st has now been shredded completely.

I had one plan and that plan has changed a number of times already. The first half of 2008 has been eventful to say the least, and jam-packed with surprises at every turn.

The latest and greatest happened this morning. My husband, co-top-dog of the Glass Posse is now Top Doggin it in my church congregation. For those of you who are not schooled in the Mormon culture or terminology, I found a fantastic snippet that explains what my DH (and hence, the Posse) is IN FOR for the next (average time) 5 years.

That's right 5 YEARS.

My DH is the Bishop.

Read all about it.

And don't forget the last paragraph...oh yeah he is responsible for ALL that...plus has to continue to perform well in his full-time job and take care of the predictably unpredictable Posse of girls he lodges with and provides for.

It's a lot, but I do feel it will be a tremendous blessing for the Posse. Good Luck Bishop Glass.

I really mean this with all sincerity...he is going to be really amazing. I am so happy for you and your family. PS. I love old Big Sis kept saying "dad is the bishop???...the bishop???" very fun!

Wow...that is great! Congrats to your whole family! I am sure that it feels nice knowing that the Lord feels confident in your husband to fulfill that role. It has alot to say about you as a wife too...it is just my opinion...but I really think that having a supportive wife has a lot to do with those who are called to be Bishops. Congrats again!

I'm guessing Heavenly Father is pouring out blessings to your family now, and with the beginning of the next half of 2008, a new chapter for your family. And you get the honorary title of Mother of the Ward. I'll have to make an announcement in CP Ward next week. I'm sure Bishop Glass will be a wonderful leader for your ward, as he has been for your family.

it's been said before, when it rains it pours. First the head bump, now the bishop. I can see why you shredded your '08 plans. But what a great opportunity for the Lord to teach you and bless you. What an amazing 5 years you have ahead of you. We will be routing for you all along the way....
we love you!!

Congrats to all of you -- it takes the whole family to serve as Bishop. What a wonderful blessing in your life. I'm sure you've heard the saying "I didn't say it would be easy, I just said it would be worth it"... very applicable here. Enjoy every moment, it will be over sooner than it sounds like!

Jen said...

congrats!!! you guys will survive and even THRIVE! I have to say that my DH totally called that he would be the next bishop.

as for your 2008 agenda...i guess it's true...life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.

Wow! Now that's gotta make you feel kinda old, right? Or are all the bishops in your ward really young? He must be a really great and special person to become the wards bishop- good luck to your whole family-it'll definately be a unforgettable experience!

Here's a little funny for you. . .When my Mom called me she said "I have some news about Jason", she was talking all serious and I totally freaked out "WHAT Happened????", then she said, "Oh, he was called to be the Bishop."

Phew. I told her she scared me, and she said "that's okay, I'm sure it scared them too!".

In all seriousness, I know that Heavenly Father knows you and your family and must know that (somehow) you can all handle it and things will be fine. . I know you have extra blessings headed your way.

Oh my. Congrats? He will be fabulous as will you. Wow! What a blessing for you and for the ward.
