Bear, (checking teen-age slang list as she types), says to all winners . . .


Most Excellent!

Totally Awesome!

Way to girl, gals!

Way to go, dudes!

Hmmm . . . I think the teenage slang list still needs more words that express approval/amazement/appreciation! Ah well! Back to what us older people rely on . . .

Congratulations, Winners!! YES!!!

Yes, congratulations everyone. This was a surprise. I was blessed by many stories and poems this week. I was glad to rejoin the group again for awhile. I missed it. God Bless.

Umm, is that my name I see?

Thanks so much to the judges and everyone who commented. The readers have really blessed me this week.

I'm so excited to see so many great names up there. I've set myself a task to read as many stories as possible tonight before I go to bed, so I'm sure I'll be reading many, many, amazing entries.

Congratulations everyone. make me smile.

Lisa...I am always impressed.

Rahel have really, really grown and it is so good to see your name up there. Loved your take on Ruth. Amazing how many different ways we can look at a Bible story. Almost as many ways we can look at Hmph, or, Ow, or eeek.... :)
