Papa’s World – Last Sunday – Church Goodbyes!

Community Lutheran Church – Sterling Va.

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.

Sherry and Papa and Pastor Annabel

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.

Playing of the trumpets
The altar and music in the center
Finally at last – a real service – be it outdoors

For one last time – we gathered as a family and in-laws

to be at our last service before we head South.

Taylor and Cassidy – they will miss us – taking them to choir
Bode our little granson
Cassidy next to her MorMor ( mothers mother)

We will be back for Christmas if they are having services!

We will search for a church in whatever our new location shall be.

The little ones

Saying goodbye is never easy

saying hello is much easier

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

For the time being until we find our next church

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

Community Lutheran Church – Sterling Va.

Go in peace – thanks be to God.

  1. 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…
