Lovely. I guessed it was Anna quite early on, but even so, my spine was tingling by the end - you took me into that amazing moment.
Beautiful retelling! Excellent writing....nice work.
I've never focused on that verse before, and what a unique perspective for this topic! Wonderful in every way.
This was very good. A reminder of just one of the many people involved in bringing the word of His birth to the world. And a reminder that God does indeed keep His promises.
A beaufitul retelling of a familiar story. I loved her faithfulness in being in the temple every day.
This was great. You should get with some historian so that you can add in all the details of the buildings and smells and then send it somewhere.
You have such a talent with these Biblical pieces. I agree with Sally's suggestion. Expand this and get it published. :)
When I first heard the topic Anna immediately came to mind. I'm glad you wrote this wonderful piece about her.
If writing can be stunning, this is it! What a lovely portrayal of Anna, from her perspective.
This is a beautiful story, magnificently told. I could feel the anticipation all the way through. One of your best and a favorite this week!
Bravo! I love your take on the topic, and could feel Anna's anticipation and joy. Nice use of flashback. :)
Awesome story. I love when you bring the Bible to life!
Great job. You brought so much life to Anna. It made one of my favorite bible stories come to life in a unique way.

I've told this story many times through Simeon's eyes but never through Anna's. Well done.
Masterfully and beautifully written, and an old story brought fresh to life. Love it.
Congratulations on EC! I'm soooo proud of you! Love, Verna
Congratulations on your EC. You pulled out an obscure verse and filled it with so much meaning and emotion. Very well done.
So sweet! I especially love how you included the dog.. it made it so personal. Well deserved EC.. Congratulations, sweet friend!
Another fantastic piece as always! Your descriptions are dialogue are always right on target. Congratulations!!
Wonderfully written. This is not a verse that I've ever zeroed in on, but glad you did. You brought it to life for me and many others too. Congrats in your placement.
