Marriage vs. Ministry?

My children are now ages 23, 20, and 18, and I am proud to say that first of all God is a God of grace. We all make parenting mistakes and we sure have made our share. I am also glad to tell you that I am blessed to have three kids who love God and ministry. Instead of resenting my ministry for taking time away from them, they are really proud of what God has done through me. My son Trent wants to pursue ministry to youth as a pastor. A couple of years ago, my oldest daughter told me she is really picky about the guys she dates because the bar has been set so high for her. She said, "You guys have made this hard on me. There is no way I would ever be with someone who did not love me as much as you and Dad love each other." Then she said the best thing of all, "I want a marriage like yours." It does not get any better than that!
