I love the symbolism. Burnie represents our Christian lives. He represents who I aspire to be, bravely committed to God's purpose.

Beautifully written. You have a way with words.

Very unique metaphor to symbolize a wick as how a committed Christian should be! Such an engrossing read! Excellent job on this!

This has got to be the most interesting take on topic I've yet read. I kept wondering what this Burnie was until finally you mentioned the candle wick. Very creative and encouraging.

This is brilliant and so out of the box! There weren't many OOTB stories on this topic but you did it masterfully. I really liked the metaphor and thought the parallels were genius. Maybe because I just read an abuse story, I did wince at the part where Burnie(clever name!) was beaten. I understand it to mean the discipline that God gives us to train us to be His child but it did make me wince just a wee bit. Congratulations for placing 12th in Masters and 18th overall.
