Life Reflections of Dassalee Evarista “Mama” Phillips
For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge will award to me on that day.
2 Timothy 4 – 7
