Cross with lovely flowers exploding box...for a retiring pastor

One of my closest friends asked me to make
a card for her Pastor that is retiring.

I used my Sympathy cross but removed the sentiment.

In infinite wisdom
the Lord surely knew,
that we'd need a Pastor
as faithful as you.
A love of God's word
and a heart for His flock,
you give of yourself
and you stand on the Rock.
I should add that I was given the wording
to add by the friends I made the card for. 

I really love these exploding box cards......

I'd like to share this with
