Friends are Forever
If the Lord’s the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
‘Cause the welcome will not end
Though it’s hard to let you go
In the Father’s hands we know
That a lifetime’s not too long to live
Friends are Friends Forever by Michael W Smith
Brother’s and Sister’s,
I am writing you to thank you for the journey we have shared together for so many years, we have walked a path together that has had many twists and turns. When I sat down many years ago to begin this journey I never dreamed that my life would be touched as much as it has been, never dreamed that Glory Seeds would become what it is. Your presence in my life has brought great joy to me as I have journeyed my path through many challenges, it has been through your presence and prayer that I have overcome those obstacles and have been victorious.
It is with both joy and sorrow that I am coming to you today, our journey has come to and end and now we must part. We have come to the point in our journey that brings us to a fork in the path. While I may not be with you physically, I will always be with you. In the sweet and sacred place that is within each and every one of us will still be together. When we started this journey together it was my dream that we could deepen our walk with God together, that could learn from each other. Today my challenge to you is that you not let the work end here, this family we have built together is just the beginning of a work that is greater than you or I. Pick up the torch and continue the race, we are a blessed people and need to be a blessing to others. We are blessed to be a blessing, it is our calling to go forth and fulfill that calling. My mission for you is to go forth and bless!
The time has come for us to part ways, however, this is not goodbye! I leave you with these parting words by M Dixson, As I travel down the paths of life, I long for the journey’s end for my destination is with m savior resting in the arms of my best friend.
