“The LORD is my SHEPHERD, I shall not want. 2 HE maketh me to lie down in green pastures: HE leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 HE restoreth my soul: HE leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for HIS NAME’S sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for THOU art with me; THY rod and THY staff comfort me. 5 THOU preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; THOU anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” Psalm 23
We know, remember and honour you mom. Love Mary, William and Bill.
“Blessed be the GOD and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you who by GOD’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 3-5)
“For if we have been united with him in a death like His, we will certainly also be united with Him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.” (Romans 6: 5-6)
Although you’re no longer with us on earth, we have blessed assurance you now dwell with our beloved GOD and saviour, Jesus Christ. We love you, Grandma Tate. I look forward to seeing you again.
