*** AS SHE PICTURED IT ***
"Beautiful." She whispers with labored breath.
"Exactly as I pictured it."
"Pictured what, mother?"
"Look up." She points a bony, arthritic finger toward the window. "Layers of clouds swirling around a golden chariot with majestic white horses. Playful, pixie cherubs in wispy pink. Feathery wings, fluttering, shielding His face. Glorious, divine harp music.. Can you hear, son?"
She rests her head back and smiles. "It means Israel rebuilt the third temple in Jerusalem in time for His return."
"Shall I close the blinds, sir?
"Not necessary, nurse. She's been blind since the stroke five years ago."
