Tell The Story Challenge II

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!

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. That’s a beautiful picture you painted with your words, Amy, about Christ preparing a place for us, and waiting… Waiting is more beautiful from that perspective.
    Thank you for nominating me, and for the intriguing pictures. 😊
