Purple Rose


Lift your weary head dear Purple Rose.

Breathe in the sights and smells through your nose.

Smell the freedom God always provides.

A way of escape, a place for you to run and hide.

To the strong tower, your lighthouse on a hill.

Whose arms are open while saying, “Know and be still”

Life can roll us over, chew us up and spit us out.

But through it all we’re instructed to continually praise Him and shout…

Victory ahead! Victory ahead!

Praise Him my friend, and He will lift you head.

I'm a stay at home wife and mother of 3. My oldest is 23 who lives at home because she is a delight and is autistic. My other 2 are in elementary school. They are all 3 girls. Raising an autistic daughter isn't the same as raising ones without. So it's like starting anew with some things. I will partly write about this. I have overcome many addictions with the only Savior Jesus for 8yrs. I will also write partly on addiction and how I see it and overcame it. I believe you will find my musings encouraging, helpful and sometimes a bit funny since I tend to be someone who holds nothing back. The purpose of my blog at first was to use it as an outlet, a way to get things out of mind and onto paper. But it has turned into a place I can go to encourage others with a short story, poem or to simply talk and try to relate. I just started blogging a month ago (April 2018) I wish I would've done it sooner! I promise to never try to sell you anything but Jesus' love. Be patient as this site may take on a few changes as I try to find my place in it and where I want it to go. I have many ideas swirling...stick around! Thanks for reading.

  1. Wow, Amy! Very sweet! 😊

    Purple Rose truly came up with a beautiful name that has a lot of meaning. It was nice to see it take on a poem form. I wish everyone knew how unique it is to her, her story I think can truly touch a lot of people. We can’t always tell happy stories (some of us are still trying to find ours), but we can help one another through the not so happy chapters of our lives. πŸ’œ

    God bless, Sister Amy!
