She made no mention of it at breakfast and kept the vision to herself. Harold left for work around nine and she took a shower and got ready for work. Working as a legal secretary was a job she enjoyed because she and Harold related well to the day’s events, for Harold was an attorney at Gibbs and Hobbs, downtown on the square.
The vision stayed with her all day and its effect on her work was noticed by her boss, Mr. Davis. He ordinarily praised her for her timeliness and efficiency but he gave no praise to her that day.
On the drive home from work, the vision came to her again—this time with more urgency and force. It was disconcerting because the vision interrupted her driving and almost brought on a wreck. She was happy to get home and do ordinary things like cooking, cleaning up after and being with Harold.
Upon arriving home, the strange vision had disappeared from her mind and memory and she began her cooking routine with gusto and purpose.
After dinner she and Harold relaxed into their post-dinner routine and enjoyed a glass of wine and watched a new DVD. It was a wonderful and peaceful evening; she went to bed happy and calm. That is, until the strange vision came to her once again…
This time the vision was clearer and even more disturbing…She saw in her mind’s eye a room, a very large room but with no furniture, pictures or people. The only object in the room was a glowing, benevolent object and it felt like the glowing object was smiling; happy to see her.
Then the benevolent being began to speak, “Elizabeth, my beautiful and very helpful servant. It’s time to go. You’ve done your work well and it’s time for your reward.”
She replied, “But, I don’t want to go yet; Harold needs me. He’s so scarred and insecure when I’m not around. And, he has that awful food allergy. No, I can’t go! He will just die, if I leave him now.”
The Being replied, “You must come now and rest assured, Harold will soon follow. His health is poor and missing you, will bring him quickly to me and to you. So, come now..”
Upon hearing this, she got out of bed, reached for his hand and was lifted up toward Heaven…
Minutes later, when Harold found out that Elizabeth was gone, his sadness was so great that the glowing spirt came to him and lifted him up to Heaven and his waiting wife, Elizabeth...And oh, the happiness of being together, again!
