How time flies, doesn't it? This is really a nice piece;
One little thing-
I would change the grave site scene to 'today.' I understand what you're saying, but the yesterday on the short sentence before that made it seem that only two days passed between the cancer diagnosis and the burial. Or maybe another sentence in the illness part would change this?
I love the ending and the simple 'tells-it-all' title.
Short and sweet! I love the feel and flow of this piece, it's dream-like in a rather haunting way, because it connects with the ready and making them want to identify with having that kind of peace. ^_^
Beautiful story of love (eternal) and loss (temporary). The reader can actually see the peace that comes from the MC faith. Well done!
A beautiful combination of sweet love and heartwrenching trajedy. Truly Jesus is our all in all- we understand that life with Christ is difficult but without Him it is impossible. Great story!
Very nice piece--poignant and well-written!
Congratulations on placing 7th in your level! :)
The way it reads "this one alone?" really resonated with me. I'm going to cherish that question. All the hurt I saw before it... washed away. A true Christian testament!
Hi Kathy. Iím running a little late this week, but just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Forty two Years, actually did very well in the Beginning and End Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 7th in that Level. There were a lot of entries this week, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so well done.

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.
Again, well done. :-)

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
