"Majestic blue eyes of Jesus"

After thinking about a comment ridiculing the video of a little boy who went to heaven recently about Jesus' blue eyes I thought more about it.
Jesus being Jewish to some makes them think that Jesus did not have blue eyes.
After being in Israel a couple of times and seeing blue eyed blonde Jesus paintings I thought it was somehow offensive.
I do know that some dark skinned people from southern India also have green eyes, so why not Jesus with blue eyes?
 
Then I thought, looking upward into the sky in the middle of a sunny day is like looking up into the eyes of Jesus.
He sees us all the time and he does not blink. He is the light of the world even in darkness.
How beautiful the blue sky is, he could have made it any other color but he chose blue.

What was the color of the curtain that stood in front of the Holy of Holies?

1. Ten curtains, each twenty-eight cubits long and four wide, made of fine linen, also eleven made of goat's hair, covered the tabernacle #Ex 26:1-13 36:8-17

2. The sacred curtain, separating the holy of holies from the sanctuary, is designated by a different Hebrew word (peroketh). It is described as a "veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work" #Ex 26:31 Le 16:2 Nu 18:7

3. "Stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain" #Isa 40:22 is an expression used with reference to the veil or awning which Orientals spread for a screen over their courts in summer. According to the prophet, the heavens are spread over our heads as such an awning. Similar expressions are found in comp.

 

The curtain represents. among other things, the heavens.

We sit under his beautiful blue eyes.

As you look into his majestic blue eyes you see the heavens and all it's glory.
