Hi all. I’ve decided to not follow the rules again and step outside the box. I was nominated by two great ladies for the Tell The story Challenge created by The Eclectic Contrarian. When looking at their photo choices, it was clear to me to use one photo from each for one story. So I will show you both photos and put their tag under it so you can go check their blogs out as well.
But first, the rules:
Pic a image given to you, write whatever comes to you. Short, long, funny, sad….a tribute to someone, a poem, a song. Then choose some images and some nominees and keep the ball rolling.
I search for You in this City on fire
To see you again is my one desire.
Why didn’t I listen to that first trump’s call?
Why did my heart long to wait and stall?
They all said you were coming!
Shouting it over their shoulders as they were running…
towards you, riding on your white horse.
And now I’m left here, how do I plot out my course?
Off you went with your bride, their lamps full of oil.
Why didn’t I listen to Your word? Why did I always recoil?
I’m alive and breathing, do I get another chance?
Or is there an enemy lurking, about to advance?
What will happen, where will I be?
Where will I spend eternity?
As I wrote this, I realized there are many views on the rapture of the church, pre-tribulation and all the other stuff. You’re welcome to share your views in the comments of where you think this man will end up in this “story” of mine, but do know I won’t argue, as my philosophy is and will always remain the same: Be ready, have your lamps full of oil and make sure you get on that cloud when Jesus comes back!
“Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come…Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” (Matthew 24:42, 44)
My nominees are:
Lydia Porter….(you can do it!)
