It is never easy saying goodbye!
For 15 years we have called this our home church.
After we moved to NVA in 1999 –
it took us over six years to find a place of worship
A place to be happy with and in.
So it came to be – on Sunday – at the end of the service outdoors
in the center of the main parking lot
Pastor Annabel called us forward
to stand befroe the congregation
receive a blessing and say goodbye.
I have never been good at these type of things
First because I did not know what to say
and second – even if I did – I couldn’t
I am emotional –
I write much better than I talk.
For one last time – we gathered as a family and in-laws
to be at our last service before we head South.
We will be back for Christmas if they are having services!
We will search for a church in whatever our new location shall be.
Saying goodbye is never easy
saying hello is much easier
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
Go in peace – thanks be to God.

Very beautifully said, as always, and also very moving (in the emotional sense)–it brought tears to my eyes! I will miss you and your family so much, but wish you all happiness as you begin this next chapter of your lives. Drive safe–and STAY SAFE!! With love–from Linda…
Linda thank you for the thoughtful and kind words. You stay safe also!
