This drew me in from the start! A unique take on the theme "luggage". I especially loved your title!

I am loving all these creative retellings and creative embellishments of familiar Bible stories and characters.

Nice job! You held my attention and wove an enjoyable picture. I'm sure there was a huge party when those "old bones" were buried and the people were finally home.
Well done! I really enjoyed this retelling. I knew Joseph's bones were carried to Israel, but I had never thought about how it must have been to carry them or how long the journey with those old bones was. Great title too!

Very imaginative. Brought Words to life. Great work!
Great re-telling of a few short oft-overlooked verses from the Bible. It's something we usually don't give much thought to - you've done a good job bringing it to life. Thank you.

A rich retelling of the fulfilment of the promise made to Joseph. I liked the way you developed the story.

Excellent job. A contender. Let's see if it cracks the top 8!
Powerful! Loved this: "It took centuries, but Joseph’s request was finally fulfilled. The burden the Israelites have carried has been laid to rest. Surely, the Lord Almighty is faithful."
