Fragmented sentences, incomplete thoughts
And nothing written had ever been bought

Completely confused on how I should write
Till faithwriters found me one fateful night

Oh what excitement my heart did embrace
Boy what a blessing to find this new place

So many new friends I have come to know
In such a short time they sure helped me grow

It wasnt long and the Challenge did call
With keyboard and prayer I gave it my all

Within a short time a challenge buddy came
Guiding me gently with purposeful aim

And now I am hooked right up to my gills
Striving each week to improve my new skills

Just how did I make it all those long years?
Oh thinking about it brings me to tears

Now I have been published several times
To just think about it blows my poor mind

Whod have considered just one year ago
Id see such multiple blessings bestowed

Yes faithwriters is the right place for me
And no better place could this writer be

Keeping company with good writers does indeed help one to be considered as a good writer. Glad we can all keep each other 'company'.

I think you've truly captured this place in a few words. Lovely.

Oh wow, you really tapped into the FW crowd--I believe there's not a single one of us who wouldn't say the exact same thing!

True of many of us at Faithwriters! You captured the feelings perfectly and the topic.

Very nice! A great way to illustrate the topic AND honor the blessed place that is FaithWriters!

I think you've done a great job of expressing your heart and capturing the thoughts of all us writers here at FW.
Doing this in lyrical form lifts my spirits even more.
Great job.
