Dove of Heaven

Themes: Captivity | Death | Support

Our beloved queen is imprisoned in a high tower—sealed in from the sun and the moon. The king has walled her in for seven years, without meat or drink.

Walls built by kings don’t keep us out! We visit her twice a day, and we bring her food from heaven.

Many more than seven years have passed, and the king has forgotten her. But soon he will see that she has been unjustly served. He will break down the walls, and he will be shocked to see that she is alive. He will release her. He will beg her to eat. She will refuse all earthly food, and in three days, she will die. Then we will escort her to heaven.
