Thank you family.
Shade was steadfast in her faith and had her eyes and hope in the promised new earth. That is the hope of resurrection and everlasting life (John 5:28; Revelation 21:3-4).
We urge you to investigate and strengthen your conviction in this firm hope which is clearly expressed in God’s written word of truth, the Bible.
