Looking for the fire-fighter, but did not find him. Good entry for "Cross", "being alone" or finding God...but Judges will look for the Challenge topic. Thanks for sharing this story, however.
Beautifully written! I loved the poetic description at the beginning. And, using poetic license, there can be more than one definition of a firefighter (one word, by the way).
I disagree with Marilyn about the lack of firefighter in the story. I especially liked the metaphor "Sarah had to fight her fires alone". This was a good story with meaning on two levels. I also loved the tie-in with the scripture verse. Great job! This had a very satisying ending.

Very nicely done and I loved the symbolism of this girl fighting those fires alone--so pertinent and unique way to look at the topic. I would suggest some spacing between paragraphs to help the flow for the reader. Otherwise, great story.

I too loved the metaphor about the fighting of ones own fires; an easy to read story that flowed easily. Please write more!
