How can I help you say goodbye

I made this for our (Youth Pastor-Worship Minister) Adam and his wife Jessie. They announced this last Sunday that they are moving. It is always hard to have people you love, leave. I am just thankful that I got this set from Layers of Color before they left. I have been on the worship team with Adam since he came. When I saw this set, I thought it would be perfect to make an appreciation card for all his hard work. I also made this for this week's teaparty and last weeks teaparty. The daisies are for last week. The disappearing part on this card, is our youth pastor leaving. It is also for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge to add faux stitching on our card. It is also using today's sketch challenge. The lyrics at the bottom of the easel card are from the Patty Loveless song." ...Time will ease your pain. Life's about changing, Nothing ever stays the same. How can I help you to say goodbye? It's OK to hurt and it's OK to cry. Come let me hold you and I will try. How can I help you to say goodbye. You will be missed!"
Dear God, I pray that you will bless Adam and Jessie and the girls. It is hard saying goodbye to them, but I know that you have a plan for their lives. I pray that you will always be first in their lives, and that you are able to use them in a mighty way to impact youth in other communities as much or more than they did here. In Jesus Name, AMEN
