Congratulations!
:party

I am excited about placing 3rd. I LOVE to plan parties so I enjoyed this topic. For the record, we did play baby pictionary with THAT word at a baby shower I hosted at my house. We did not give anyone THAT gift, but I DO know someone who got one at her baby shower. If anyone is offended, read Song of Solomon.

Well, I'm more than flabbergasted. I haven't made the top five in months and months and months. Haven't had any worthwhile ideas in months and months and months. And, to top it off my family read this one and all nearly fell asleep. None of them liked it. :?: :?

Well, I guess someone here did. Thanks SO very much for the encouragement. You can't believe how I've needed it lately.

Congratulations to all! There's some awesome stories out there again this week.

Love ya all~

LOL - No, I had to wait until now to see the results. I'm actually very surprised!!!!! :shock: I really thought my piece wouldn't place! Oh, my.

Congratulations to EVERYone! I've learned that placing doesn't make one a winner - simply having the courage to enter in the first place does. Isn't it great that we can all be in the winner's circle? :D

thank you Joanne, for picking me as a jewel!! And my thanks to Betty for her encouragement to hint and throw bricks!! My reward this week was the comments I received~how amazing is this place?! The quality of writing from all those who participate is sooo inspiring... Keep up the great work...

My favorite this week was William's Anzhela's Shoes (hope I spelled that right) Powerfully gripping and deeply moving!! Congratulations, Kind Sir, on a piece that was truly inspirational and thought provoking!

A BIG congratulations to all who placed! There were so many entries that touched my heart.
I have a question about the order of the "All Other entries." When you look at who placed from the main Faithwriters page, at the top it gives you the names of the winners, under that is the list of all other entries. Is this list in any sort of order or just random?

Thanks :D Paula

Paula, it's not in order of ranking. It's supposed to be in order of submission, but apparently that isn't always the case. However, I can say with absolute honesty that it isn't possible for that list to be in the order of ranking, as FaithWriters don't have that information. I only ever send them the list of actual winners each week. They don't get the rankings for all entries (only I've got that list).

But I am about to post the Highest Rankings now--the top 40 overall, and the top 15 for each level.

Thanks for setting me straight, Deb. One question- what does the phrase "all up" mean? I could guess, but I'd rather be sure. I'm thinking it must be an Aussie phrase, because I've never heard it before. :)

She just means that ANY three EC's move you up. IN other words, if you get one in beginners, one in intermediate, and one in Advanced, your next entry would need to be in Masters, even though only one of your ECs was in Advanced. Clear as mud?
