The Eclectic Contrarian has created and nominated me for this fun challenge the rules are as follows…
Present a picture, then tell the story of the picture. It can be as short or as long as you want it to be. Nominate at least 3 people. This really gets your gears rolling. Be as creative as possible and use your imagination! Let’s see what kind of awesomeness can come from you!
Picture I chose…
No choice but to stand on this chair.
Water has invaded my world everywhere.
All that I love have been lost in the worldly flood.
My friends, my family, my blood.
You proclaimed your love and set out to prepare.
Add on to your father’s home. A new place for us to share.
On this chair I stand without spot or wrinkle.
Knowing anytime you’ll return soon in a twinkle.
Though I stand alone, I will not get down from this chair.
Soon you’ll be back and with you I’ll be caught up in the air!
Did you know that in the bible days when a man was engaged to be married, he left his fiancee at her parent’s house to wait? He would go to his childhood home and build onto it for his wife to be. When he was done, he would go for his bride. The bride didn’t know the day or the hour that he would return for her, so she stayed readily available each day.
Maybe you feel alone today. Maybe you’re the only one saved in your family. Know that God, our bridegroom, has gone to build onto His Father’s house. He went to prepare a place for you.
When He is finished, He promised to return for His bride, (us). We must be ready everyday. And if we have to climb up on a chair to get away from the snares of this evil world…then so be it. Whatever it takes. And while we (the bride) wait, we’re given more than the women did in those days. We are given the Holy Spirit to guide and protect us until that wonderful day.

This last photo was a screenshot of a photo Leola had on her blog that she took. I think it’s unique. Thanks Leola!
