Fantastic job with the extended metaphor of the swamp/quagmire/mud throughout. Excellent!

There was a spot or two where you switched metaphors, though--I remember a "mountain" in an early paragraph, and also "barriers." It'd be stronger to just stick to the one analogy.

This was a superb job of "showing" without using dialogue--just this wounded woman's heart.
SO many people struggle with shame! Thank you for sharing this encouraging testimony!
I loved the title and how you kept the "theme" through out your story.
The last line sums it up very well.
The metaphor you wove into your story brought a feeling of depth to it. You showed the crushing damage of sin and the restoration of Christ's power in forgiveness well. This touched different emotions as I read through it. Thanks for writing. Keep up the good work.
Written realistically. Good job showing how extensive the reach of sin is, and the patience and time needed for any healing. So glad your MC found complete healing. Nice job. :)
