Congratulations to everyone!!!


Fantastic reading material this week. I read all the ones who hinted, though I didn't get to all who entered. Just goes to show you how important HINTING is to readers who don't always have lots of time.

Blessings,
Patty

Competition was stiff this week as soooo many awesome entries came in. I only was able to read a fraction of them, but even that small sampling proved to me that those who won worked hard and deserved it. Congrats to all of you! :)

Way to go placers... That's really coooool!!! :brrr

Also, thank you to everyone who commented on my entry. I've been away from Faithwriters and it means a LOT to have such a warm welcome back. Even though I didn't even place in my own group :cry: it eases the pain to know that I squeaked out an EC. :lol: Thank you, Lord, for Your inspiration; Thank you, Judges, for your perspiration; Thank you, readers, for your dedication.
I had something really memorable to write here but I forgot what it was.
