The Holy City

Grandpa's CT scan showed that his cancer is also in his bones, spleen, liver, and lungs. It hurt to see him so uncomfortable and mostly unable to communicate. We played violin for him tonight in the hospice room. He's always requested "The Holy City" -- that's what I wish for him.

"I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 'Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve Him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
