    "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭4‬:‭6‬-‭8‬ ‭KJV‬‬ This was Her.
