A Tribute to Elissa

{Instant friends}
{Bonded through ministry, forever and always}

{My heart is better for knowing you}
{Sisters, not friends}
{Your laugh is contagious}
{Your smile genuine}
{You truly have a heart for God and for His people}
{Amazing Wife and Mommy}

{Best friends}
{One person could be overpowered.
      But two people can stand up for themselves.
      And a rope made out of three cords isn't easily broken. 
Ecclesiastes 4:12}
{Elissa, her husband, Michael, and baby boy, Masen are moving and my heart breaks and rejoices all at the same time.  In ministry you have very few and far between safe friends, and Elissa is one of mine.  It's been a rough week to say the least, but I know God has great things in store for her family and for her.  Please be praying for this special family as they have a lot of new transitions going on in their life.  And as Lucy loses her little boyfriend :)  Mase and Lucy are only 3 days apart!}

I am so sorry your friend is leaving. I know what you mean when you say ministry means that safe friends are few... I am learning that "the hard way." Praying the Lord brings you a new friend to ease the pain! :)

Awe! I know that must be tough on you and her! After reading that post, I am sure that you two will remain to have a strong relationship no matter the distance!

I'm sorry to hear about your friend moving. :( I bet it's tough. ((hug)) I'm sure God has wonderful things planned ahead for them. I hope God brings someone along to kindle a new friendship.

So sorry your friend is leaving! I completely understand about ministry friends leaving and about having "safe friends." Dealt with a lot of that growing up and have seen my mom go through it too. Praying for you!
