This gave me goosebumps, just reading it! What a great parable. I liked the fairy-tale quality and your title certainly caught my attention. Good job-especially with the italics.
The title drew me in and I was captivated by the allegory. Really enjoyed your writing style and the story in portrayed.
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! What a perfect portrayal of the Bridegroom and His bride!
Lovely. I can see the pictures in the book that go along with this wonderful description of the waiting church.
A wonderful analogy of the Church awaiting the return of Christ. I felt that adding in the imposters trying to distract her away from her purpose was a masterful touch, it really made the story, and is a good warning as well.
Wonderful, WONDERFUL analogy. You put me right there, and taught an amazing lesson. Beautiful piece.
Beautiful, beautiful story. I love a good allegory, and this definitely fills the bill!
Oh, Sharlyn, this is an awesome depiction of a faithful servant waiting the Bridegroom. Beautifully simplistic, reads like a fairy tale. But then the story of Christ does sound too good to be true, doesn't it? Super job!
Beautiful story, exquisitely written. There is so much depth in this. Wonderful work on this!! I love it!
A wonderful story - it enthralled me and brought home in vivid terms the unlikely truth my Prince would choose such a one as me.
This is very, very good. Goosebump good. :) Excellent writing. Great job with the topic.
This captured my attention at the first few words. Love the fact that this is an allegory, and a good one at that. Well done.
Congratulations on your placement. I really enjoyed reading this piece. Loren
Congratulations on your highly commended. This was one of my favorite pieces this week.
Lovely, Sharlyn! It's nice to be reminded of what we are waiting and hoping for: the return of our Prince! What a beautiful allegory. Congratulations!
This is so good! (How did I miss it earlier in the week?) You've written one of my favorite kinds of stories and done it exceedingly well. I also liked the way you portrayed the impostors. Definitely a keeper!
