As Shepherd of The Glades Lutheran Church begins a new chapter, we wanted to share some words of thanks and gratitude from Pastor Doug and his wife Lynn as he takes on his new role in life... Our Fond Audieu It isn't ever easy, to tell dear friends, "Good-bye," to close a chapter of our lives, as tears flow from our eyes. It isn't ever easy, to bid dear friends, "Adieu," to hold our mem'ries close at heart, and whisper, "we'll miss you." But, our God doesn't promise that tears will never flow, That hearts won't ache and hearts won't break, dear friends won't come and go. So, as a flower grows, then buds, then blooms and fades away, so, too, shall dear friends come and go, to meet again, some day. Dear friends, we'll miss you sorely, yet, fond mem'ries there will be, of willing hands and loving hearts, and souls of poetry. Kind words to chase a thousand tears, the warmth of each fond embrace, and lonely heart'll remember, the smile of each loving face. May God bless you, richly, as we venture on our way, may He walk beside you, daily, 'til we meet again, some day . . . Adieu, Dear Friends, Adieu! IMR (Lynn's Mom) Thank you Pastor Doug and Lynn for the many years of ministry, and may God bless you. May, 2009 - September, 2018
